Alstroemeria Floret Wyverns were released on May 21, 2021 as part of Dragon Cave's 15th Birthday release, along with the pink variant of the Iris Floret Wyvern. They share descriptions along with the encyclopedia name "Floret Wyvern" with the Iris Floret, although they have separate encyclopedia entries, and are thus considered different breeds.[1]

Like their cousins, Alstroemeria Florets come in pink, purple, and gold variants. Conversely to the Iris Floret, only the pink variant can be found in the Jungle, while the gold and purple must be obtained by breeding them with an Iris Floret.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This shiny egg smells faintly like flowers.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It always seems to be in a good mood.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It always seems to be in a good mood.

And look! Its wings have grown feathers! It must be close to maturing.

Adult[]

Floret Wyverns are an elegant breed, named for the flowerlike mane and tail each individual possesses. They project small fields of magic around themselves that calm those in the field’s proximity, for a short while replacing anxiety and anger with peace-of-mind. Florets are strikingly wise; they often share their knowledge of the world with whomever is willing to listen and learn. They are very faithful to those close to them, and are especially devoted to their partners and young. It is said that the lasting friendship of a Floret is one of the highest testaments to one’s true character.

Variant determination[]

Alstroemeria Florets come in three color variants. The pink variant can be found in the Jungle. The purple and gold variants can be produced through breeding an Alstroemeria Floret with an Iris Floret, and can produce any of the three colors of Alstroemeria Florets when bred. Breeding an Alstroemeria Floret with an Iris Floret can produce any species and color of both Floret Wyverns.

Variant How to obtain

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Wing structure is a unique mixture of feathered constructs, petal-shaped feathers, and membranous sections.
  • Males possess a large additional feather not present in females.
  • The flower-like structures on their heads, necks, and tails contain ducts that emit sweet-smelling pheromones.
  • These “petal” structures are rather thin membranes, and are easily torn. The petal structures on their wings are sturdier.
  • The thin tendrils that adorn their heads, wings, and tails shimmer when they use magic.
  • A Floret’s skin is soft and poorly-armored, but not a major liability thanks to accelerated healing.
  • Though they may appear to be scaleless, Florets’ bodies are actually coated in very tiny, slightly iridescent scales.
  • Florets have surprising strength, despite their delicate skin and aversion to violence.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Hatchlings are curious and eager to learn whatever they can about their surroundings.
  • Tend to follow their parents closely so as to learn as much as they can from their elders.
  • Quick learners, Floret hatchlings love being taught and participating in new games and challenges.
  • Young Florets are far more trusting than their adult counterparts, and thus easier to form bonds with.
  • However, it can be much harder to gain a Floret’s forgiveness if it is wronged as a hatchling.
  • Alstroemeria Florets retain their baby fat for longer than their Iris relatives.

Adult Behavior

  • The soothing, floral aroma they emit contributes to their calming abilities.
  • Their flowery pheromones are especially effective on magic-resistant breeds.
  • Averse to conflict, they tend to avoid some of the more aggressive breeds, though they don’t necessarily look down on them.
  • Occasionally, many of the Florets in a region will gather to exchange newly-accumulated observations about the world. These are usually the only times wild Florets stray from the flowerbeds they match.
  • Although quite proficient in understanding of magic, they are limited in their magical capabilities.
  • Florets are able to heal remarkably quickly, likely resulting from some sort of innate magic.
  • They enjoy wading through freshwater to keep themselves clean and presentable.
  • Unlike their Iris relatives, Alstroemeria Florets are less self-serious, and as a result aren’t as prone to inflated egos.

Habitat

  • They settle wherever flowers are abundant, especially alstroemerias.
  • Individuals’ colorations tend to match the flower composition of the area.
  • Florets tend to live in caves, though they will sometimes construct basic shelters against trees if they like a cave-less area enough.
  • A Floret’s molted feathers can typically be found around where they live. Both for their beauty and for the lingering effects of a Floret’s soothing magic, these feathers are often collected by humans and made into accessories.
  • They tend to prefer warmer climates than their Iris relatives.

Diet

  • Omnivorous, their diet consists of plants and small animals.
  • They tend to prefer vegetation, snacking on meat only when they have a specific craving.
  • They occasionally splurge on larger animals, but only if they happen upon a recently-deceased carcass; they never make the kill themselves, unless it is necessary.
  • If a Floret is forced to fight and it leaves its opponent mortally wounded, the dragon will make sure that its fallen enemy’s remains are put to good use.
  • Occasionally have been known to nibble on tree bark. No specific reason is known.
