Grave Dragons are not named for their connections to death or burial, but for the grave expression on their faces. This strange expression is used as a defense mechanism that causes fits of panic and terror in potential predators. Since they only eat ash and charcoal, they do not hunt. Grave Dragons are powerful fire-breathers and have been known to burn down forests and villages alike to make meals. It is believed that the markings on each Grave Dragon’s wings are the faces of those who have lost their lives in fires started by that dragon.
An elusive and gentle dragon, this female has positively no interest in killing anyone. Living on ash gained from burning isolated woodlands and the bodies of things already dead, she is horrified by those of her kind who intentionally go about setting villages ablaze, and will often confront these beasts in an attempt to stop them. The scars marking her body show that she is not always the winner of such battles, but she wins at her true purpose all the same; her confrontations distract the enemy long enough to allow the targets to awake and flee, or to call in more benevolent, powerful dragons to help protect them. In this way Sinceria has gained much respect and affection in her homeland, people and dragons alike often bringing her gifts of charcoal to snack on. Dracologists, meanwhile, have expressed interest in her for a very different reason; the fact that the gentle dragon's wings are patterned is proof that the markings of Grave dragons do not come from the souls of victims.
