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.
White dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.
Opalizas Thuwed ClearSight (after the gemstone: Opal) is the 129th member of the clan cave with a strong and noble lineage stretching back several generations. The Clan Mother was told of her existence by one of her newfound friends, the generous and kind, Lady Sturm. There was some speculation that her egg was intended as a gift to another clan, yet none came forth to claim her, and so, she became forever more, a Mystal Clan dragon. Strong in magics of health and healing, she spends much of her time tending to the scrapes and bruises of the young, and watching over the egglings with careful attention. She takes great pride in her paternal line, having learned its history from the clan elders. It is said that she possesses a special gift in that upon its birth, she is able to discern what, if any, ailments a new dragon may develop throughout its lifetime. This clear and future vision has afforded many new clan members a healthful salvation that they would otherwise not have enjoyed.
