Striped Dragons come in a dazzling array of colors complemented by an intricate pattern of stripes. These bright colors and patterns help attract their favorite food, insects. Because their prey is so tiny, striped dragons must spend a large portion of their day eating. The color of the offspring is usually determined by the dragon’s mate.
Marcus wears a perpetual scowl. The green striped dragon believes he was meant for better things and would have gotten them if his family hadn't let him down. Even as a young hatchling he realized his mother Gracie lacked the necessary ambition. He left her and the clan of his birth to join his grandfather at Laura-Lana's clan. Sadly Richard proved just as much of a disappointment as his mother. But worse was to come. His own egg turned out to be a white stripe. Dragons, who belong to the cult of the Stripes of Hogwarts, believe the colour of a stripe dragon says something about its personality and accordingly Marcus believed Justin to be kind but unacceptably weak. Eventually Justin left his father and joined his grandmother Gracie's clan. Not willing to have another egg, Marcus kidnapped Justin's red stripe egg. Sadly his grandson lacks the courage and leadership skills that the cult promises for red striped dragons. Marcus is very bitter about that.
