Adult[]

Black Truffle dragons are one of the rarest breeds—though this was not always the case. Once, these dragons were quite prolific, but their musky-smelling secretions were found to be useful in the making of perfumes and scented oils, leading the dragons to be hunted near the point of extinction. Now, these dragons live far away from humans and will only share their oil with those they deem worthy of this gift, those possessing a pure heart and selfless spirit.

Trivia[]

  • When bred to Lumina Dragons, the Black Truffle's oily coating causes Luminas to shed their scales.

Additional information[]

As to the concept - yes they secrete oil - but it isn't great gooey copious amounts that drip from every pore in its body and stick to everything like Terpentines [sic] do. Someone mentioned rainbow boa snake skin - and in reality it is probably the closest to the actual concept. They rub the oil from a gland on their jawline (like a cat does) over their scales in a thin layer which dries into a waxy substance, protecting the scales from dirt and scratches and enhancing their normal iridescence - so yeah Luminas would find a kindred spirit. It is this super smoothness that makes them feel slick and oily - not a coating of thick goo. Once completely dried to wax the oil looses [sic] its pungency and therefore value as a perfume base. Only fresh liquid oil from the glands is good for this - and being near a lot of teeth - yeah it is safer for some low life poacher to kill it first and take what they can get - similar to what elephant and rhino poachers do today. Yes it uses more oil during breeding - and it gains that characteristic sweet musky earthy scent that people chase. So it is more valuable for perfume use at this time of year and why its [sic] so valuable. It does not 'wash off'.
