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.
Talon Fang is a born fighter, with claws sharp as daggers and fangs sharper, and with the skills needed to use them. He is a powerful fighter, one choosing to attack from the shadows rather than head-on. Talon's scales are the perfect shades of onyx, ebony, and hematite to blend into the shadows and become invisible to the eyes of all but another black dragon. Talon's only feature that may give away his attack position are his eyes, as they are a bright emerald in color and tend to glow when the moonlight strikes them right. The whip like tail that sits at the base of his spine acts not only as a weapon when needed, but also as a counter balance in flight. A set of powerful legs that will put any other animal to shame, as far as land-speed is concerned, that lead to a very powerful strike when his teeth won't do the job hold him up.
