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.
Si'ana is a very patient purple dragon. She tends to mother everyone she comes across, and loves all her offspring and the other eggs and hatchlings unconditionally. One of the reasons she is so motherly is because she received very little care as a hatchling, as the other dragons were only young themselves. Being one of the oldest dragons in this cave, she wants to make certain that all the hatchlings are taken care of by a parent figure so that none of them feel left out. She loves to play with the hatchlings, and regularly tries to coax the other older dragons into playing too - though frequently to no avail. She gets on well with the other dragons, and is close friends with Emerahl, the black dragon. These two between them are the matriarchs of the brood, and keep the order and balance between the rest of the dragons.
