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.
A stern dragon whose past is quite a mystery. She comes from a long line of strong and wise black dragons, and she enjoys watching over certain humans as they proceed about their lives. The tamer caught her attention in particular after she was mauled by Gaalsien and saved by S'jet and Ryukari. She has yet to fully offer her aid to the tamer, but has pledged that if she keeps to her code of honor, then she will aid the tamer when it comes time to stop the rampaging dragons.
