And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.
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.
This male hatchling's personality could be described as overbearing. For unknown reasons, he likes to refer to himself as Dices. He is convinced that his need to gamble runs in his genetic makeup. Nonetheless, the adult dragons in the pack do not approve of his habit. The hatchlings, however, love Dices. Because of his imperiousness, he loves to explain and play board games - many of which he created himself - with the hatchlings. When Dices stole his owner's wood-crafted board games, she decided that freezing Dices would be the best option to ensure his gambling habit would not get worse towards adulthood.
