Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It chews on plants all day.

And look! It has started placing flowers between its antlers. It must be close to maturing.

Adult[]

Wisteria Dragons are gentle, forest-dwelling dragons named for the wisteria that they weave into their fur. The flowers grow lusher and more beautiful as a result of the proximity to the dragon’s life mana, and in turn become a source of pride and honor for each Wisteria Dragon. Each dragon’s specific arrangement of flowers is unique, and it is uncommon for more than one Wisteria Dragon to ever be recorded in the same section of a forest. Despite their solitary nature, many have said that setting out a small offering of flowers by the edge of a forest on a sunny day is enough to cause these dragons to appear—although most see only a blur of bright purple flitting between the trees. Even such brief sightings are thought to bring health and longevity to a lucky observer.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Vibrant wisteria flowers seem to bloom directly from their silky coat; the bines of the plant are woven into these dragons’ long fur and hidden from view.
  • Each Wisteria Dragon arranges their flowers differently. Most dragons place the majority of their flowers between their antlers and in their thick tail.
  • Adults have delicate whiskers that support the most fragile bines of wisteria.
  • In colder seasons their golden-brown coat fades to a more subdued shade of beige.
  • Their curved, angular torso allows for speed and agility through complicated terrain. Their graceful movements make them recognizable even from brief encounters.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Adults clear a radius of greenery away before laying eggs. As hatchlings grow, they are surrounded by various plant life that grows alongside them, providing ample nutrition.
  • Because of the growing intensity of their life mana, Wisteria hatchlings eat large quantities of plant matter per day.
  • Unlike adults, hatchlings are social and enjoy playing together. They often meet near the edge of their parents’ territories to explore and forage in pairs, only growing more solitary and independent with age.
  • While Wisteria Dragons never leave the forest floor when fully mature, they are keen on climbing trees and perching or napping on low-hanging branches as hatchlings. As their life mana strengthens, so does their connection to the ground.
  • Mature hatchlings experiment with various wisteria placements, finalizing their preferred style as they reach adulthood.

Adult Behavior

  • As a gentle and nonviolent breed, Wisteria Dragons take care to tread softly in the forest.
  • Because Wisteria Dragons abstain from fighting, they rely on wisteria’s natural toxicity to deter predators.
  • They spend their days grazing and foraging close to home.
  • Occasionally they follow a particularly sweet aroma of fresh flowers toward the forest edge, but they don’t prefer to stay there long.
  • In early spring, they court mates by displaying their wisteria in bloom.
  • Wisteria Dragons love sunlight and tend to be less active at night or on cloudy days.

Habitat

  • Although they are capable of surviving in a wide array of environments, they prefer densely forested habitats.
  • Because their life mana facilitates an abundance of plant growth wherever they go, they are never in want of food and find little need to venture outside of their chosen territory.
  • Adults dwell in sunny clearings deep in the forest and return to the same spot each night.

Diet

  • As herbivores, Wisteria Dragons primarily graze on fresh grass, leaves, and moss.
  • While some herbivores harm the forest ecosystem with excessive foraging, Wisteria Dragons always leave an area more plentiful than when they arrived.
  • In certain seasons, they forage for low-hanging fruits and nuts to supplement their foliage-heavy diet.
  • Despite their immunity to the toxins, Wisteria Dragons refuse to eat wild wisteria.
  • They are fond of human snacks like rice crackers and honey.
