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.
Gift, as he became to be called, is very trusting of human beings. As an egg, he was presented as a token of kindness to the Master. Ever since, Gift has been enjoying a comfortable life living inside the Master's house. He's very curious and loves to peak his head into every small and big crevice. However, his favorite pastime is running up and down the stairs, occasionally bumping into visitors and guests. When he fancies a break, he glides down smoothly from the top of the stairs. At the end of the day, Gift lies down by the hearth, curled up on his favorite golden threaded rug.
