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.
Black dragons are warriors. They are strong and capable in battles of force, but also ample magic users, capable of devastating opponents with their spells. Their bright eyes give them excellent night vision, which is why they generally hunt during the night.
Found as a sick hatchling near a pile of eggs, Dark Roland Dramatico's story is not one of luxury or fame. He was found lying in a pool of his own tears. His mother had long forgotten about him as he had the scent of human about him. His mistress carried him out of that wretched cave to a veterinary hospital where doctors had no clue how to treat him. They released him from care telling his mistress that there was nothing they could do. She did what any loving mother would. She kept Roland in her basement and fed him three times a day for as long as she could. While Roland's mistress has long since passed, her tireless efforts ensured Dark Roland Dramatico's survival. To this day he wanders the earth in search of his mistress, never knowing that he will not find what he seeks.
