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.
Two headed dragons are a special breed of dragons. They have two necks, two brains, two mouths, but one stomach and one main body. The two heads usually work together, but there are times when they will fight each other, attacking back and forth. They use their sharp teeth and wings to hunt large animals, and rarely eat plants. It is unknown what would happen if a two headed dragon were to mate with a one headed dragon, since it has never occurred. They only mate within their breed.
Having two independently-thinking heads makes for a difficult enough start to life, but Juldi and Thalic are even more divergent in personality than most separate-living siblings. Juldi is the practical, conservative part of the equation, constantly trying to keep impulsive Thalic - well, the both of them, actually - out of strife. They are of one mind in craving the respect of the dragons who share their hunting ground, but when they are enraged enough to fight, they trample over the boundaries of all those they struggle to gain favour with.
