Official dragon descriptions[edit | edit source]

Egg[edit | edit source]

"This egg has a very thin shell."

Hatchling[edit | edit source]

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It has two tails!"

Mature hatchling[edit | edit source]

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It has two tails!
And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."

Adult[edit | edit source]

"Swallowtail dragons are graceful and quick flyers, much like their namesake bird. They are capable of precise aerial acrobatics, and can reach very high altitudes. Because of this, humans observing these dragons are often astonished at how large they are when confronted up close. A Swallowtail's diet consists of insects and small mammals plentiful in temperate forests. These dragons are also made remarkable by their paperthin wing membranes, which allow light to pass through, creating an astonishing effect on starry nights."
