Official descriptions[]


This crystalline egg almost looks like you could reach into its depths.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s very curious and restless.

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s very curious and restless.

And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.


The Aeria Gloris are an unusual-looking breed. With six glowing eyes, a ring of crystals that orbits around the dragon’s neck, and seven sets of short wings lining their body, these dragons are thought to be related to something primordial, perhaps even alien. Regardless, Aeria Gloris Dragons are graceful and gifted with potent magic that allows them to manipulate space almost instinctively. They have been known to use highly complex teleportation magic on the fly, and while these dragons are not very mobile on the ground, they often take off by using their magic to create a field which temporarily reverses gravity’s hold. Aeria Gloris are usually neither malicious nor benevolent, preferring to mind their own business and wandering as if in search of something.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Technically amphipteres, have seven sets of wings lining the body and six sets of fins along the tail.
  • Outer layer extremely smooth and almost velvety-feeling, highly sensitive, and outer layer is shed in one piece regularly.
  • Neck is long and flexible, orbited by a ring of bright blue crystals.
  • Crystals are mostly composed of excess minerals in the dragon’s diet along with traces of mana, and are produced in the dragon’s body and spit out.
  • Orbiting crystals can be removed from the ring, and the dragon may consume them to replenish depleted minerals.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Eggs are hardy and typically hidden, left to hatch on their own.
  • Wing buds are present at hatching but hidden under outer layer of skin while they develop.
  • Alert and relatively mobile at a young age, able to hunt small prey.
  • Around the time spatial magic begins to develop, wings are exposed during shedding. This reduces ground mobility and forces the hatchling to learn to fly.
  • Hatchlings raised among other dragons or by humans are very skittish at first but become sociable and form deep attachments to their family.
  • Fins develop on maturity.

Adult Behavior

  • Perceptive, typically non-confrontational unless hungry, and not social unless raised around others. Hard to find as a result.
  • Often teleport away when approached, or if agitated, may teleport their attacker or fling them via manipulation of gravity.
  • Physically rather fragile and well aware of it; avoid physical contact even if socialized when young.
  • Unsocialized individuals breed opportunistically on locating the scent of a compatible mate.
  • Socialized individuals are not terribly picky about mates either, and are almost never monogamous.
  • Blue glow from eyes and markings on side and wings is bioelectrical in nature.
  • Will shock any predator that does manage to grab on in hopes of dislodging it so the dragon can teleport to safety.


  • Not necessarily confined to any one habitat, but seem to prefer higher elevations.
  • When not hunting, tend to wander about seemingly at random.
  • Not territorial, will not even acknowledge others of their own breed unless they are a compatible mate or they are very hungry.
  • Tend to hide their eggs in crevices on rocky mountaintops or loosely buried in ravines just below the treeline.


  • Carnivorous, prefer to eat prey whole.
  • Land-bound prey is killed by teleporting it high into the air, while flying prey is usually constricted and shocked with electricity.
  • Hatchlings tend to eat rodents and other small animals.
  • Sources of mana will also be consumed, including the mana-heavy flora and fauna.
  • Will eat humans and even other dragons unless taught not to as a hatchling.
