Young dragons are relatively defenseless. They are born with relatively soft scales, which are shed and replaced with harder ones as the hatchling matures. Once a hatchling’s wings grow in, it marks the beginning of maturation. At this point they are often capable of hunting on their own and are usually left alone by their mother.
Redden Scales is a young hatchling who only seems to venture out into the sunlight. He seems to sleep or avoid the rainy days. He attempts to befriend everyone, and most of the time succeeds, although he tends to get into dangerous situations whilst trying.
