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.
Silvertons is a rather shy dragon. Unlike other dragons, he does not use telepathy to communicate, he uses simple gestures such as waving his holly adorned tail, to the simple nod of his head. He is formally known as 'The Dragon of No Words' due to being a mute. He highly lacks social abilities, and is often seen perched at the edge of Cliff Zimmerman, observing the rapid movements in the sea.
