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.
Royal Blue dragons are a nocturnal breed who prefer to live high in the mountains near slow-moving water that reflects the night sky. Although quite capable of defending themselves, they are peaceful by nature and will avoid a fight whenever possible.
Fehia is a shy, well-mannered dragon. As a hatchling, she was raised among a noble family of humans as a pet and playmate for the children. As she grew in size, Fehia became far too much trouble to feed and bathe each day. Eventually, the children had to give their darling Fehia away and release her into the Wild. Once living in the Wild, Fehia struggled to survive. She had no hunting or surviving skills. Fehia almost starved to death until she was found by a stand-offish Golden Wyvern dragon. The Golden Wyvern reluctantly took care of Fehia and taught her what she needed to know to survive. Fehia, for her part, was forever grateful to the Golden Wyvern and now loyally stays by his side.
