Gold dragons are the ones most often killed by humans, who consider their scales to be extremely valuable. These golden scales grant them a high level of protection, similar to armor, and they use this to their advantage in battle.
Blachylles (Black Hills) is a slightly jittery fellow. As he is naturally nervous, he fidgets a lot, and looks rather thin and weedy for his breed, despite his prodigious appetite. Although he is a worry-wart about virtually everything to some degree, a major reason for his nervousness is that he puts a great deal more stock in the tales he's heard of dragon hunters than most. He is therefore wary of any human but the Keeper, despite having been human-bred, himself. Blachylles has tried to hone his natural defenses, even though it's debatable whether he would actually try to fight, or would flee an encounter with dragon hunters.<br/>Like many Gold dragons, though, he is still rather vain, and absolutely loves to be scrubbed, bathed, and preferably oiled until his scales shine like the sun. This is a weekly ritual for him, and usually follows feeding upon a fresh kill. He also has a spot behind his left horn, which, when scratched, will make him kick his hind leg like a dog.
