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.
White dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.
Aracelis spends most of her days secluded in the eastern tower, overlooking the river, the fields, and the forest beyond them. She also watches over her mate, her offspring, and the other dragons. She has a particular love for the wild green called amaranth and for the waters of Loch Linnhe. The little mint dragon Simka is usually to be found nestled near her. Her name means "Altar of the Sky".
