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.
Ice dragons are fierce predators who hunt using their extremely cold breath. The breath of an ice dragon can freeze its prey solid in seconds. The body of an ice dragon is so cold that icicles will form along its skin no matter the outside temperature.
Azunae, or Azu as she's normally called, is a curious young hen. Although brilliant, she has had little understanding of others since she was first born; a trait that may or may not have been the result of some trauma. Her manners are...lacking, yet she isn't horrible and is approachable by even enemies so long as they mind their ps and qs.
Only a few members of the Northern Clan have made contact with her and of those even fewer have any firm grip on her persona. She works with Creorluna unfortunately; yet it seems the cult's leader has no qualms with giving her free reigns, perhaps this is because of her abilities. Izdati knows he has to keep her.
She has a talent for creating beautiful works made out of ice, to the extent of being able to color them brilliant hues. Her den is a marvel, a kaleidoscope of color and shapes and glittering ice. When someone angers her she encases him or her in a thick chunk of ice enchanted to never melt. She doesn't understand this is wrong.
