Now there are even more vines. Perhaps something is happening?
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.
Kyrackle was technically the oldest of the Copper Cave family before she was frozen by a spell from a strange stone that she found deep below her dwelling. She now retains her youth. She doesn't need wings, since dark green dragons burrow through the ground and she was frozen after most of her scales had grown in. She's great friends with Alvarak, a Guardian dragon, but sometimes Alvarak gets in the way for the sake of her safety. She helps take care of the eggs and other hatchlings, but mostly digs around, popping up in certain places to patrol their own cave. In fact, she has a whole labyrinth of tunnels to different places, such as her favorite hunting grounds, a friend's cavern, and even an underground lake, which is where she gets water.
She's a rather sarcastic dragon, but she is also a great friend and will risk her life if she has to, if in dire need to rescue a close companion.
However, sadly enough, her friend died at an early age and she is now living as a loner.
