Nocturne dragons are a strange breed. Whenever light strikes their bodies, they are frozen in whatever position they were in. This leaves them vulnerable and they rely on camouflage to keep themselves safe. They are often mistaken for statues when in this frozen state, but Nocturne dragons do not actually turn into stone. Rather, they merely idle until the sun goes down. At night, these dragons come to life, proving themselves to be powerful fliers, although little else is known about their true behavior.
Thorn's name perfectly matches his prickly attitude. As a hatchling, he got his disproportionately large wings caught in a tree, and all of his friends just watched and laughed. Now, he tries to reject all dragons who try to get too close to him before he even knows them.
