Ridgewing dragons live just below the snow level on the upper slopes of mountains. They are a friendly, playful breed and enjoy dancing in wind currents near their homes or plummeting down into valleys from great heights. Their wings, by far their most striking feature, grow in fin-like ridges along their backs. While their bodies lack markings to blend better with their surroundings, a ridgewing’s wings have bright markings in the colors of the flowers that grow in their mountain habitat. Occasionally different-colored individuals can be found, but they are rare because their striking coloring offers little protection.
Estrilla could best be described as the prettiest of the elders of her cave and she knows it. She is very fickle and vain. Unfortunately her beauty must have blotted out her intelligence as well. Many view her as rather a pain, but they do keep her around whether because they feel sorry for her or due to a few claiming she really does have a few good qualities under all that fluff. It is true, while she pretends to be helpless and completely brain-dead; Estrilla will rise to the occasion if the situation calls for it. Her erratic nature hides a great deal of courage, determination, and loyalty that even she doesn't know she has.
