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.
Magi dragons are, as their name suggests, primarily magic users. They rarely use physical forms of attack. They eat anything they can kill, which is almost everything. They won’t kill unprovoked except when hunting, although they may kill humans if in danger. Their strong magic makes them one of the most feared breeds of dragons.
Banshou is the main Non-Healing Magic teacher of the clan. No matter her feelings, her outside always shows her to be kind and patient whether she is teaching a young dragon or hatchling how to assume a human form or threatening a student with a thunderbolt lashing if they don't be quiet and pay attention to the lesson. The other magi of the clan have been taught one-on-one Non-Healing Magic by Banshou personally and those magi, in turn, have become absolutely terrific teachers.
