Black Dragons are warriors. They are strong and capable in battles of force, but also ample magic users, capable of devastating opponents with their spells. Their bright eyes give them excellent night vision, which is why they generally hunt during the night.
For a long time, Phantom had been the leader of the clan as she is the first dragon of the clan, and is still considered the symbolic leader today. Her success as a leader wasn't achieved without a great deal of stress on her, and the fact that she was always aimed at by the clan's enemies didn't help either. After suffering both mental and physical pain for an extended period, she finally collapsed, handing over all duties to her mate and clan co-leader, Master of Mages. Mage went on and became the clan's de facto leader while Phantom attempted to recover, only to have herself further hurt by tragic events, which strengthened her thoughts to officially hand the clan over to Mage. Now free of all power and responsibility, the seemingly-cursed life of her has changed as well, as she now happily lives on as Mage's lifetime mate and assistant.
