Ridgewing Dragons live just below the snow level on the upper slopes of mountains. They are a friendly, playful breed and enjoy dancing in wind currents near their homes or plummeting down into valleys from great heights. Their wings, by far their most striking feature, grow in fin-like ridges along their backs. While their bodies lack markings to blend better with their surroundings, a ridgewing’s wings have bright markings in the colors of the flowers that grow in their mountain habitat. Occasionally different-colored individuals can be found, but they are rare because their striking coloring offers little protection.
Tander is the exact opposite of her mother. Where Tan-K is a force to be reckoned with, someone to make her way no matter what, Tander is soft-spoken and delicate. She is generally more well liked than her mum and a lot less (not at all) feared, but still Tander wishes she had inherited at least a little bit from her mum, like her robust nature and health. As it is Tander spends most of the winter covered in thick layers of fabric and gets a cold nonetheless, while in summer she has to stay indoors as to not get sunburned or exhausted by the heat.
