And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.
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.
A small dragon, Liyuki is fond of taking advantage of her size. During a snowfall, Liyuki likes to burrow in the snow, awaiting what small prey or friend that may come by. Upon feeling either the scuttles of a mouse's paws or smelling the scent of one of her friends, Liyuki would erupt from the snow, sending the white fluff flying everywhere, whether in chase or prank. Liyuki is playful and mischievous, but her general amiability and friendliness has broken the ice many times and attracted her many friends.
When Liyuki is not hunting or playing pranks, she can be found near Cresento, a lonely Christmas dragon. Purring, almost like a cat, Liyuki would twine around the larger dragon's legs. Quite the opposite of Cresento, Liyuki is completely sociable, especially among other hatchlings. For example, she can be found cajoling sweets from Pure-Hearted, a small Sweetling. Other times she sings, preferably carols, with Dolce Lullaby. To Liyuki, the best life is a life spent with friends.
