Official Dragon Descriptions[edit | edit source]

Egg[edit | edit source]

"The air shimmers around this egg, as if from heat."

Hatchling[edit | edit source]

"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It loves warmth, and sometimes you have to pull it away from fire to keep it from burning itself."

Mature Hatchling[edit | edit source]

"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It loves warmth, and sometimes you have to pull it away from fire to keep it from burning itself.
And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing."

Adult[edit | edit source]

"Yellow-Crowned Dragons are found in the hottest, driest regions of the desert. Although they thrive in these conditions, they do very poorly in cold or humid climates. These dragons are very fast fliers and skilled hunters, and usually feed on small, quick desert antelope. Yellow-Crowned Dragons are diurnal, and spend the night in underground burrows they dig or steal from other creatures. They are often seen out sunning themselves in the early morning sun, waiting for the heat of the day to set in."

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Smooth, semi-iridescent scales.
  • The bony facial crest tends to be slightly larger in males.
  • Dozens of teeth made for crunching bones and shearing meat from carcasses.
  • Physiology seems to be adapted for maximum water conservation.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Even more cold-intolerant than the adults.
  • Eager yet clumsy hunters–rely on their parents for food until they’re almost fully grown.
  • Like to work together to play pranks on other dragons.
  • Explore novel objects by finding out what happens if they set it on fire.
  • Crash a lot when learning to fly.

Adult Behavior

  • Live in small family groups that care for the offspring communally.
  • Migrate to slightly wetter climes to reproduce.
  • Females coordinate reproduction so all offspring are born around the same time.
  • Usually hunt alone, but may work together if the opportunity arises to take down a larger prey animal.
  • Once the group becomes too large, pairs of dragons may split off and form their own.
  • Hate getting wet.
  • Mates chosen based on the size, shape, and symmetry of the crest.

Habitat

  • Well-adapted to extreme heat and little rainfall.

Diet

  • Almost never drink–most of their water comes from the diet.
  • Entirely carnivorous diet.
  • Often crack long bones open to eat the marrow.
