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.
White dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.
Anwi is rather weird. She makes odd markings on her staff for no apparant reason and talks to herself almost all the time. Most think that she is mentally challenged, but a few close friends, such as Grok, her mate, know that she has her own reasons and defend her against others.
Her staff is made of the wood of a spruce tree, oddly enough. She says that the scent improves the condition of the body and mind, helps wounds heal quicker, and can raise IQ.
