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.
Silver dragons are arguably one of the most beautiful types of dragons. They live in high altitude habitats such as mountains. Silver females, like most female dragons, eat meat only when a male dragon brings it to them. They possess an almost magical aura that lights up any place they are in, and are looked upon with awe by humans and animals alike.
Without a slight relation to the silver cave masters or the "Lustrous One", Fading Colors has been outcast by many of the silvers. Of course she is invited to many of the metallic dragon's meetings of the cave, but she simply fades into the background so that she won't have to confront those who look down upon her. One day she hopes to be a cave master and to get back at the "Lustrous One" and all of his close followers and relatives just to show that she is just as important as they are.
