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.
Silver dragons are arguably one of the most beautiful types of dragons. They live in high altitude habitats such as mountains. Silver females, like most female dragons, eat meat only when a male dragon brings it to them. They possess an almost magical aura that lights up any place they are in, and are looked upon with awe by humans and animals alike.
Sioria, like all of the tribe's silver dragons, resides on the tropical island of Molehu. Molehu means Twilight in Hawaiian, as Hawaiian is the silver dragons native language. The islands are named Twilight after the time of day, between sunset and dusk. Sioria is unique among silvers there because her name is actually a combination of Latin and Spanish, instead of the traditional Hawaiian. Her name means "silver river". She earned her name by living almost entirely in the mountain rivers on the island when she was a hatchling, refusing to leave and played with fish instead of other hatchlings. When she grew up, she found the courage to leave her river home and find a mate, Voughn, the vine dragon. Sioria still prefers to stay in the water though, and will only leave when she has to.
