And look! It has grown spines on its back and tail! It must be close to maturing.

Adult[]

Light Weavers are an elusive breed of dragon, most commonly sighted in the coldest months. When the days grow short and dark, these spirits of winter emerge from their dens just after sunset, painting the sky in a dazzling display of light that’s as rare as it is awesome to behold. It is said they only make their presence known to lost travelers on the brink of despair, whom they guide to safety with a trail of enchanted light. This light radiates a comforting warmth powerful enough to cut even through the most frigid temperatures. According to legend, flames lit by their antlers do not burn out until they are no longer depended upon by the recipient.

Chanukah sameach, Dragon Cave!
I hope you all enjoy the Light Weavers, Dragon Cave's first Hanukkah dragon! It's been really lovely seeing everyone responding positively to this little bit of representation, and I'm so glad it's made other folks smile the way Pied and I smiled making them.
As silly as this may sound, this is an actual childhood dream come true for me! I've been playing Dragon Cave since I was a 10-year-old in elementary school, and even way back then, I'd dreamed of seeing a Hanukkah dragon get released. Back when holiday dragons were still called "Spirits of Christmas" on-site, I'd even made a Suggestions and Requests thread about secularizing Christmas on-site so that players like myself of non-Christian faiths could feel more included (a change I was so thrilled to see get implented).
The timing of this finally coming through is really meaningful to me as well. I worked on my first Hanukkah-inspired concept alongside a couple collaborators in 2013, so this is the 10-year anniversary of my first attempt at a Hanukkah dragon. And as others have mentioned, this release comes at a time when antisemitism has been on the rise in the real-world. Having this piece of positive representation, now, means so much to me. And to other players who are Jewish or of other underrepresented faiths and cultures, I hope this makes you smile as well.
@PiedPipecleaner, thank you for making these blue noodles with me (especially since I asked you as late as December 20th)! It was so lovely collaborating with you, and it was really awesome getting to work with another Jewish artist on something based on our culture. I'm thrilled to share this release with you ❤️
@TJ09 Thank you for taking a chance on these! This release means so much to me, Pied, and other Jewish players, and I'm so thankful to get to have them lighting up the skies of Valkemare.
Happy holidays, everyone, and may your 2023 be happy, healthy, and full of light~
