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.
Magi dragons are, as their name suggests, primarily magic users. They rarely use physical forms of attack. They eat anything they can kill, which is almost everything. They won’t kill unprovoked except when hunting, although they may kill humans if in danger. Their strong magic makes them one of the most feared breeds of dragons.
Coffeena was given her odd name for her way of always being hyper. When she was a young hatchling she would always play roughly yet playfully with other hatchlings, and seem to bounce off walls. Occasionally a random blast of small magic would be fired from her. Over time, though, she grew a little more mature.
Although she is an adult and should be able to make her own decisions, many of the senior dragons of her clan watch her. She's not allowed to watch over hatchlings much, as the elders think she's still too playful and could accidentally hurt one of the younger dragons. Others just think she's too jolly, and dislike her because of that.
Being treated like this has isolated her, over time, from her clan. The only dragons she talks to anymore are Tarnishan and the dragon she secretly loves, Pebble Boulder.
