Welcome to Dragon Cave! Dragon Cave is an online adoptables game. Collect eggs, raise them to adulthood, and then breed them to create interesting lineages. New dragons are added regularly!
Hellfire Wyverns are so named for their foul tempers and fiery visages. Their social structure places all females above all males, due to superior physical characteristics and violent dispositions. Forced subservience of the males causes them to become vicious, petty, antisocial, and passive-aggressive compared to the aggressive and social females. However, orphaned hatchlings raised by foster parents of another species can develop surprisingly even tempers and mellow dispositions, proving that their defining unpleasant nature is, in fact, a learned behavior.
Dragons are highly-intelligent reptilian creatures that—from a human perspective, at least—appear to live forever. Many different varieties of dragon exist, each with their own unique qualities, habitats, and behavior. Adolescence in dragons 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. In Galsreim, dragons and humans coexist peacefully.
A male hellfire wyvern knows, from birth, that they are nothing. They will be beaten, savaged, harassed; left so battered and miserable and weak that their only chance for survival is to rely on the same females that are the cause of all their anguish. The only hope they dare hold is that they will not become the object of an alpha's affections. This is their truth, and few have the will to rise against it.
Yet one did.
Quietly, subtly, he bred with a desipis when his flock wasn't looking, and one of particular power at that. The son she bore he brought into the clan and offered no protection to. So it was that the child suffered the same agony he had--until the day his mental powers awoke, and he brought every female in the clan cowering before his feet.
Now a savage adult, the dragon inflicts the same constant misery he once experienced upon the former queens of his pack, showing kindness to none--save his father, of whose schemes and crimes he remains completely ignorant.
