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.
Dark green dragons, once they mature, appear to become an entirely different species. However, this isn’t true. Rather, they burrow underground and get nutrients from their vines. These vines are sometimes referred to as Dragon Grass. These dragons are very violent, and will use their vines to capture, kill, and eat anything that moves, as well as nearby plants. Luckily, their range is limited and they cannot use magic. Dark green dragons tend to be easy to spot since they usually kill all plants around them and thus are usually surrounded by a large clearing.
Dinapur is a misunderstood dragon. To those outside of her clan, she's agressive, unfriendly and even slightly bloodthirsty. However the clan dragons know that this is not the case, she just dispatches her prey very efficiently, and is actually a real sweetie. Dinapur is quite an affectionate dragon, she loves her mate Eyan and all hatchlings and eggs. There is one problem with Dinapur and all the clan knows it, she is exceptionally clumsy. If a breakage happens in the territory, she's the first to be blamed. Some of the dragons even go far enough to think, that when any egg dies, it's because Dinapur was too close to it. Dinapur gets really upset whenever she breaks something and will do whatever she can to correct her mistake.
