Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s very festively colored.
And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.
Young dragons are relatively defenseless. Their scales don’t grow in until right before they mature, and they have almost no strength. Once a hatchling’s wings grow in, it marks the beginning of maturation. At this point they are usually left alone by their mother and begin to hunt and survive on their own.
Jolly is a very lively hatchling whose mother absolutely adored pirates. She named him for the famous ship of the infamous Captain Hook. As life is always ironic Jolly took more after Hook's nemesis and like Peter Pan decided to never grow up.
Besides Jolly reasons "Christmas is always more fun for hatchlings anyways."
