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.
As their name suggests, Electric dragons are capable of producing electric charges. They can produce different amounts of electricity depending on their mood and time of year. During mating season, their sparks become brighter to attract potential mates. Electric dragons aren’t usually a danger to other dragons, but they do use their power to attack predators and prey.
Possessing a rather brilliant, deeply analytical mind, Esteon is well-known for having the oddest cave in the Northern Territories, riddled with hundreds of odd contraptions and concoctions. The clutter of his odd inventions creates something of a gauntlet that is impossible to navigate.
A smidge listless and eccentric besides, Esteon openly obsessed with invention and considers it to be a progress akin to evolution. In fact, he views the body itself to be nothing more than a hyped-up machine. Because of this he has the tact and social skills of a belligerent drunk.
Fortunately he has two assistants to translate his lacking social prowess: Sabby, an intelligent young hen, and Caslin, a human boy in his teens. Both live in the labyrinth with him, but don't misunderstand their relationship with him, particularly not Sabby's. The last dragon to ask her if she was Esteon's mate found themselves on the wrong end of her whip-like tail. She considered the very idea to be a grievous insult.
