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


Grave Dragons are not named for their connections to death or burial, but for the grave expression on their faces. This strange expression is used as a defense mechanism that causes fits of panic and terror in potential predators. Since they only eat ash and charcoal, they do not hunt. Grave Dragons are powerful fire-breathers and have been known to burn down forests and villages alike to make meals. It is believed that the markings on each Grave Dragon’s wings are the faces of those who have lost their lives in fires started by that dragon.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Long, sharp, claws that are ideal for picking though charcoal.
  • Faces have almost few muscles, causing their constant disturbing expression.
  • Often have spinal issues.
  • Large lungs in comparison to their size that are capable of filtering dust and ash powder.
  • Tails are always somewhat curled. If held straight, they curl back on release.
  • Tounges are very long like a snakes and black.
  • Have a small, white pupil that moves very quickly. It can only be seen if looked at very closely at close range.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Playful and curious, calm down as they get older.
  • Learn about the world by licking things. This is to test the consistancy and texture of objects to see if a thing is good for burning.
  • Often chew on brightly coloured flowers, only to become angry from disliking the taste.
  • Fall over easily and take longer to learn how to walk then other hatchlings due to the length and frailty of their legs.
  • Fond of sleeping at with other creatures (e.g. caretakers, other hatchlings). They also like cuddling with soft things.
  • Nip and bite playfully at each other when young, but never make a sound.

Adult Behavior

  • Are a nocturnal breed, but can function in the daytime if it appears safer.
  • Unafraid of attacking when outnumbered or outsized.
  • When burning food, will usually fly low to the ground, breathing short—but super-heated—columns of fire as they fly.
  • Do not handle rejection well, starting off violent, but usually ending off more resrved then before.
  • Are highly intellegent and capable of pre-planning their attack.
  • Enjoy music and may rarely make haunting tunes when left alone.


  • Burning process loses many of the calories, so they must eat several times more food than usual.
  • After burning food, they will pick out the best bits to eat and leave the rest. It takes a very long time for them to become full.
  • Fond of water with high mineral counts or mana contamination.
  • Their teeth are sharp in front but rounded in the back. The fangs are more for defense but are useful when they rarely do eat meat.
  • After getting dirty from eating, will often spend time cleaning themselves off.
  • If they eat or drink something with mana in it, their fire can turn blue.


  • Under the legacy breed sort, these dragons sort as "Halloween 2013 Dragon."
  • TJ09 secured three of these with the codes: Scary, Haunt and Spook.
