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

Adult[edit | edit source]

Ember Dragons have a great affinity for hot environments. While they themselves are not hot to the touch, their tendency to lurk amongst smoldering ashes has caused many to believe they are fire-starters. Their dully glowing markings serve many purposes: acting as a means of identification between individuals, as an important part of mating displays, and as a way of showing aggression. The long, low build of the breed makes them ungainly in flight, and the thick fleshy membranes of their wings hinder them further. As such, it is rare to see an Ember Dragon take to the air. Ember Dragons are also not particularly sociable; females tend to be defensive, whereas males are more aggressive. Once they have settled with a particular group of dragons, Ember Dragons are incredibly loyal and will defend their pack by any means possible.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • This dragon breed is rather low to the ground.
  • The inside of their mouth is a bright, glowing yellow.
  • Covered in extremely dark scales.
  • Their wing membranes are thick and opaque.
  • Long, straight horns sprout from the back of their skulls.
  • Their markings seem brighter around their eyes, mouth, and feet, as well as on their chest.
  • There is a backwards-facing digit on their forelegs which allows them to grasp objects, though motor ability is limited.

  • They don’t seem to like the other hatchlings.
  • When they play with other hatchlings they tend to play rough.
  • Adult dragons don’t seem to intimidate them.

  • Taking flight is only used as a last resort.

Adult Behavior

  • Very aggressive as adults, which may be a result of the difficulty of finding food.

  • They seem to prefer hunting large animals.
  • They swallow meat and bone alike in large chunks.
  • Given no other option, they will eat bark and grass.
