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.
Bright pink dragons are one of the few all-female breeds of dragons. Their bright colors make them easy to spot during dragon mating season. They are primarily herbivores, but eat meat during mating season when it is brought to them by a mate. Mating seasons occur once every 200 years and can last up to 2 years.
Princess Sophia Aerias isn't really a princess. The other dragons call her that because of how she acts, not like one of the spoiled brats one would think would be called a princess. No, she is loving and caring and makes sure all the dragons in her clan are happy and taken care of. She puts every other dragon's needs above her own. She is the last to feed in the group feedings, feeling that she should make sure everyone else should get their fill before her and everyone adores her for it. Thus, they call her Princess Sophia Aerias.
