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.
Magma dragons are capable of withstanding the intense temperatures of their element. They live in volcanic regions, their bodies coated in the red hot magma which clings to their scales. They must leave the lava fields in order to hunt, although they require surprisingly little food to sustain their lumbering mass.
Firebreath assists in the nursery of Feline clan, although she doesn't visit the nursery herself very often. Deep inside the single volcano in Feline clan's territory, she keeps the flames that heat the hatching cavern hot and burning so that the eggs will hatch properly and the hatchlings are warm and content. Being deep within the volcano leaves little time for socializing with other non-fire dragons, but from time to time she will see the others and Firebreath is a gentle, kind dragon whose only goal in life is to serve her clan.
Firebreath is a very large Magma dragon and her red-hot markings are especially vivid, even in the daylight. However, her claws are short and dull from the constant scraping on the stone floors of the volcano and therefore almost useless against bringing down her own prey.
