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.
Stone dragons have a tough outer covering made of a stone-like material. They eat rocks, using the minerals they contain for nourishment and to keep up their stone outer shell. They rarely move, and are the heaviest of all types of dragons. Although they have wings, indicating flight ability, no one has ever seen a stone dragon flying.
This dragon came into the world howling with rage, and hatred. He lashed out at the other hatchlings if ever they came near, or tried to befriend him.
An imposingly large and hulking creature, Lord War brings strife wherever he goes. His red eyes glow like spilled blood against his stony skin, and his obsidian claw tips steal light and give nothing back.
He revels in strife and speaks of war like a lover, full of ecstasy and fire. The other dragons shun him, and try to turn him away when he comes, but like stone bones of the earth he is unstoppable and inexorable.
He chose the name Lord War for himself, fancying himself the avatar of the second horseman of the apocalypse.
