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.
Black dragons are warriors. They are strong and capable in battles of force, but also ample magic users, capable of devastating opponents with their spells. Their bright eyes give them excellent night vision, which is why they generally hunt during the night.
Black Ixora is simply the sexy lady of her clan that loves the wars. Going by the logic that there has never been a dragon recorded to die of old age, Black Ixora has lived since the period of King Arthur...and still survives to this very day and age. The favourite times of her life has been both of major catastrophes, namely, World War I and World War II. In each era, the lady dragon has played an active part in aiding to the chaos. She never took sides; she just wanted chaos.
When not causing chaos, her favourite pastime is to randomly stomp around the cave, irritating her cavemates to no end. Despite these fearsome traits, Black Ixora does have her motherly instincts, and loves to visit neighbouring caves to check up on her children. She has a pet machine gun which she polishes everyday lovingly. Halo, her owner, thinks that she has gone mad and suggests a pet rock instead, but she has so far declined all invitations from male Stone Dragons.
