Gold dragons are the ones most often killed by humans, who consider their scales to be extremely valuable. These golden scales grant them a high level of protection, similar to armor, and they use this to their advantage in battle.
24 - Karat, or Kara, as she prefers to be called, is the rough-and-tumble tomboy female of the Gold dragons, and has been playing rough with the boys ever since she was out of the shell. Her hide barely shines at all, most of the time, as it's likely to be dusty or smudged with something, and she always seems to walk around with a smug, feisty attitude. While not the most intelligent or magical of the bunch, she is an excellent, agile flier, and a surprisingly strong fighter, for a Gold. <br/>Kara is not very trusting of humans at all, and her mothering instincts are spotty at best. She tends to more easily view other adult dragons as her adopted family, even though she sometimes seems to thrive on antagonizing them. She loves to pick fights, at times, but she would fight to protect the others if necessary, without hesitation.
