Dragons are creatures with nearly unlimited life spans. They can survive for long periods of time, and no one has found a dragon that has died of old age. Adolescence is usually marked by the growth of a hatchling’s wings, although not all breeds of dragons grow wings and some breeds have other traits that indicate the beginning of maturation. Once they hit adolescence, hatchlings change quickly, maturing to their full forms in only 2 years.
Dragons don’t communicate with each other verbally, but they will growl to scare off predators and frighten prey. Young dragons will emit an extremely high-pitched squeal when they are frightened. To communicate, they use telepathy with each other and to speak to other creatures.
Black dragons are warriors. They are strong and capable in battles of force, but also ample magic users, capable of devastating opponents with their spells. Their bright eyes give them excellent night vision, which is why they generally hunt during the night.
Basilea was the first dragon to move into a new cave. At first, she was pretty much alone. Now she often asks herself where all the dragons that live there today have come from.
This dragon is called Basilea because she moves in a serpentine way. Her huge yellowish-green eyes also might hint that there might have been a basilisk in her family tree somewhere.
Basilea is afraid of heights and prefers to fly closer to the ground. As she doesn't see very well by day, she often has accidents like flying against trees.
