- My well-ordered, phone-typed bonus info for Nexus Dragons:
- Although fire and ice mana crystals grow in close proximity to one another on the dragon's body, they do not actually blend together at a chemical level. The crystals growing from its chest and tail are conglomerate structures comprised of tiny bits of both mana types, which makes them appear bright purple.
- Each head uses a powerful breath weapon corresponding to its magical alignment which, combined with the dragon's natural strength and reckless fighting style, make it a formidable opponent in direct combat.
- While most Nexus Dragons are born with the same mana configuration (fire on left, ice on right), "southpaw" individuals with the opposite configuration do hatch occasionally. This provides neither benefit nor detriment to the individual.
- Nexus Dragons are solitary, mingling only briefly to reproduce. The female will guard her offspring viciously, even from its sire, until it matures enough to grow wings. Then she kicks it out to fend for itself because she's nice.
- As a rule, Nexus Dragons don't actively hunt others of their own kind. However, they will gladly cannibalize a grievously injured or deceased Nexus to acquire its mana.
- Regarding 撤魔龍s' magic-dampening field being used to stabilize Nexus dragons:
- My understanding of cassare dampening may be flawed (I don't actually collect them or do encyclopedia stuff), but I would think the result there would be a Nexus that was still volatile and couldn't use its magical power. A more surefire way to keep a Nexus stable would be to strictly monitor and minimize its consumption of mana. It'd probably still not win any good citizen awards because by nature they're obstinate, quirky, and unsociable, but it would be far easier to handle. Just beware the day when it remembers how big it is, because the hunger is always there.
- Nectaris responded to the above comment with further information:
- I don't know what TJ thinks of the Cassare's dampening effect, but my idea has always been that they act like a living magical black hole(their ability to "collect" mana is warped, they continuously draw it into themselves, but it can never be accessed by the Cassare or anyone else by any known means, and there have been tries). While a Cassare that has newly moved to a location may still have mana crystals nearby, eventually they will erode to nothing, the speed of which depending on the original size of the crystal. A nearby Cassare would be a good way to limit their mana consumption, though convincing the Cassare to stick around a cranky Nexus is another matter.
