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.
Fushia is completely self-obsessed, wandering around looking at herself in any mirror that becomes available. She is not at all interested in the world around her, instead choosing to pamper herself and make herself as pretty as she feels possible. She would go through any effort or personal endangerment if the end result would be a prettier face in the mirror.
