Red Dragons are similar to typical story book dragons. They shoot flames, can fly, etc. However, they aren’t evil creatures as depicted in myths and won’t go around raiding castles, killing knights, or kidnapping princesses. They live in a variety of habitats, from forests to coastlines to abandoned castles, usually in warm climates, and eat whatever living creatures they can find.
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.
Kyialer was kept at home by his mother in their secluded mountain home for the first part of his hatchlinghood, but eventually he convinced her to allow him to go down to the valley and play in the nursery with some of the other dragon hatchlings. When he went, he realized that he was actually one of the older hatchlings still playing in the nursery, but he instantly befriended the other nursery hatchling who was about his age a female gold dragon named Drilia. She often helped out with keeping the younger nursery hatchlings in order, and as Kyialer started assisting her, the two of them began liking each other more and more. Their caring and sensitive personalities fit one another very well, and they also found that they shared an interest in aeronautics (maneuvers like loop-de-loops, how fast they could fly, etc). It came as no surprise to anyone that when Kyialer and Drilia matured into adults, they happily mated and spent their days flying together.
