Dragons are creatures with nearly unlimited life spans. They can survive for long periods of time, and no one has found a dragon that has died of old age. Adolescence 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. Once they hit adolescence, hatchlings change quickly, maturing to their full forms in only 2 years.
Dragons don’t communicate with each other verbally, but they will growl to scare off predators and frighten prey. Young dragons will emit an extremely high-pitched squeal when they are frightened. To communicate, they use telepathy with each other and to speak to other creatures.
White dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.
Saphire Blu used to be the heir of the Maple Tribe, trained my Kermoun, the current leader, himself. She gave up her position of heir as soon as Ruby Rede, her daughter, grew up and finished her training in both healing and as the new heir. Because she no longer serves as the Deputy like she used to when she was heir, she now spends that time with her mate and with the healers. She was once mate to Obsidion until she learned he had betrayed her for Violatne, the FertileMage of their tribe.
