Shimmer-scale Dragons are a very beautiful breed with small—but highly reflective—scales that shimmer and shine as the dragon moves through water. They don’t have fins or webbed feet, but their long, eel-like bodies allow them to swim quite fast. They were once rumored to carry large pearls in their claws—causing many to seek them out in search of this fabulous treasure. In reality, the “pearl” is of greater value to the dragon, for the fabled treasure is actually an egg carried by a migrating female.
This dragon has carried quite a number of 'pearls' (that were really eggs) and watched them like the apple of her eye, which gave her her name. Despite her obvious fondness for her children, she doesn't keep them close; she makes sure to find them a home that isn't too overcrowded and will swim all over the world to find such a place before she is satisfied. During these journeys she has met many different types of dragons and always enjoys learning new things from them.
