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.
Silver dragons are arguably one of the most beautiful types of dragons. They live in high altitude habitats such as mountains. Silver females, like most female dragons, eat meat only when a male dragon brings it to them. They possess an almost magical aura that lights up any place they are in, and are looked upon with awe by humans and animals alike.
Myeana was summoned to the Sky Fortress court as a child to be a companion to the Prince's son, Naranha. As they grew older they became sweethearts, though such feelings have since cooled. Myeana has traveled to other clans in search of her destined mate, who she believe would possess a silver hide like her own. At least, her search ended in the Forest Keep, where she met Iverdalon, the young and disfavored son of Emperor Celerion. She was able to take him away with her, and they later became proper mates. Myeana is unable to bear children by Iverdalon, but that is not enough to shake their bond.
