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.
It was previously believed that purple dragons were exclusively female, but this is not the case. Recent environmental shifts have revealed the existence of both genders of this breed. Female behavior is well known; they are primarily herbivores but will eat meat during mating season. On the other hand, very little is known about the behavior and habits of male purple dragons.
Being the first dragon of Doll's collection Bittersweet understands what it is like to want another similar to oneself. She is the first to weather a storm and openly offer a spread wing to any dragon of her group. She encourages the other females to leave the defending of the home to the males so that they can come together and nurture the eggs and hatchlings that are laid or collected daily. She looks forward to growing old and watching hatchlings, grand-hatchlings, etc. grow up and start families of their own whether they be in her families cave or another cave.
