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.
Valentine eggs are only seen once a year. Adults’ mating seasons are very short, usually spanning the middle of the month of February. These dragons were once reputed to be omens of good luck in love.
Visitors are oft surprised by the real "princesse lointaine", Ina, whose official name translates as "the distant princess". She isn't a storybook princess with a kind heart and vegetarian appetite. Her hobbies - swimming, sculpting, candy-making, and underwater basket weaving, and unusual penchants - shooting at anyone who passes under her tower then psychoanalyzing their lives over the unconscious bodies - don't quite endear her to Kad's clan, who know the truth. (Even if the arrows encourage sizzling romances, you have to survive. Ina isn't a discerning archer, just a strong one.)
But humans, those gullible creatures, choose to believe there's a nice princess and a naughty dragon. Ina gets plenty of practice with those love arrows still. Remember, if you can see the tower, you're about to see some other things through the air soon...
