And look! Its wings have grown larger! It must be close to maturing.
Young dragons are relatively defenseless. They are born with relatively soft scales, which are shed and replaced with harder ones as the hatchling matures. Once a hatchling’s wings grow in, it marks the beginning of maturation. At this point they are often capable of hunting on their own and are usually left alone by their mother.
Inkdrop likes to hang out around Delirium's Academy as well as human libraries. He finds the whole concept of capturing something such as thought on paper a terribly fascinating idea. As most Draconic writing is done in stone to have any kind of noteworthy life-expectancy, the fragile paper-and-ink combination seems highly appropriate for creatures like humans. Inkdrop wonders why it seems to hold such a worth for magical writing though... maybe it has to do with the fleeting nature of magic in general or... Inkdrop could spend whole days contemplating the nature of ink and paper.
