Garland Dragons, or Holiday 2017 Dragons, are the all-female Holiday dragon released during the Holidays of 2017. As a limited-release dragon, they are only capable of producing more Garland eggs during a brief period when the Holidays are celebrated in December. They can still be bred to all year round, producing the male's breed of egg. Each scroll is limited to 2 cave-born dragons of this breed, like all other Holiday dragons.

These are the first Holiday dragons to receive their own full set of unique descriptions. Under breed sort, Garlands sort as "Holiday Dragon (2017)" on a user's scroll.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This festive egg gives off comforting warmth.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. Its luminous scales shine softly.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. Its luminous scales shine softly.

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

Adult[]

Garland Dragons are a welcome sight in the skies during the holiday season. Their slightly luminous scales shine softly at night or catch the day’s sunbeams as they turn loops and spirals in the sky. They will often drape themselves around tall pine trees or along rooflines, adding a festive note to the winter scenery. Occasionally they drop red mana berries from their garland-like mane, which offer a comforting warmth to those that find them.

Additional information[]

They're very gentle creatures, spending most of their lives flying lazy loops in the sky or draped decoratively over evergreen boughs and along eaves.

Their green "garland" along their spine is modified dorsal fin, flexible, not stiff. Though they do eat normal small prey animals, the mainstay of their diet is mana absorbed through the green fins. They greatly prefer Life mana, but an abundance of any in a region will suffice. The berries are most often highly refined fire mana, and give gentle, comforting warmth to any who find one. They will gather in small groups in areas with higher than normal mana concentrations in the air, though they can be seen nearly anywhere. They appear to be oblivious to extremes of both hot and cold weather, though they're seen more often during the snowy months.

It is believed that they actively convert excess mana to fire mana, which is then deliberately dropped in the form of their berries. If one finds a nest made by one of these dragons they will find a layer of the mana berries lining the bottom, presumably to keep the eggs warm while the parent is away. These dragons are believed to be the source of the practice of decorating homes and trees with garlands made of evergreen boughs and holly berries or cranberries.
