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.
This breed of dragon results from eggs or hatchlings that have been neglected. They are usually rebellious, not obeying their masters, sometimes even attacking them. However, their neglect as a hatchling leaves them crippled, and they are weak compared to other breeds, causing them to stay with their masters for protection.
Griever hangs constantly around the 'nest' section of the clan's land where the young are raised. She isn't good for much else, being such a sickly dragon. Unfortunately, her presence is not always welcomed by the parents of said young due to her frightening appearance. So the human clan leader appointed Griever to the task of caring for the eggs that came from the abandoned area of the cave. Griever takes her job very seriously, caring for them as if they were her own children, something she will never have.
