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.
White dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.
-Speak Softly- is, as might be expected, a rather soft-spoken dragon. She tends to stay to herself and avoid attention ninety percent of the time. The other ten percent, though, comes around whenever there's an injury in Nadat's cave. At those times -Speak Softly- is focused and driven, healing quickly and efficiently. She may not be the most extroverted healer, but she's known far and wide to have one of the best abilities at the art.
Recently she met Carry A Big Stick, the male white dragon in her cave. Somehow they connected, and with Carry's help, -Speak Softly- has slowly been growing more determined and aware of the fact that she has needs as well. -Speak Softly- and Carry A Big Stick recently were pledged together as lifemates. After all, Fate brought them together. It wouldn't make much sense to ignore that.
