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.
Porphyriah's hide is soft, warm and supple, and pleasant to touch, which she loves people to do. She seems a little small for her breed, but this friendly, personable dragon likes to follow people around like an overgrown purple dog, watching them while crooning softly, and will stick her muzzle into the hands of people she likes so that they can stroke her. She is also fairly "talkative"; when being stroked or fed (especially hibiscus flowers), she makes a soft, melodic burbling sound.
Porphyriah is a very sweet and motherly dragon, and loves to play with the hatchlings, even when they're trying to chase and chew on various parts of her body.
