Species: Rewin Dragon
Birthday: Tuesday, May 25, 2010
Even when they have reached adulthood, rewin dragons are easily mistaken for hatchlings. They are smaller than most species, reaching no higher than a few hand-spans. They live around the shores of Lakira, and leave often to visit deeper waters. When winter arrives, they follow the narwhals south, returning to their homelands in the Callisto islands. There they spend the cold months relaxing on sandy beaches, and hunting for their favorite meals; fish. Watching them maneuver under water is an interesting sight; they spread their wings wide, as if in flight, and navigate with their tails. They are almost dog-like in their loyalty and affection, and will follow their magi around the castle endlessly, when not hunting or caring for the young of their kind.
Not many breeds of dragons live far from mountains, but rewin miniatures love warm climates, and thrive on islands. With blue and yellow coloring, they blend in with their surroundings and are skilled hunters. It's difficult to spot these small animals along the floor of the forest, and even harder to catch, as they are very fast and love to roost in the upper branches. Rewin dragons also love to swim, and fish are a large part of their diet. Small but sharp teeth are powerful weapons, as are their claws. A person thinking such a tiny, sweet looking creature is not to be taken seriously is in for a surprise. They attack larger creatures from the sky, diving down and then flying out of reach. They tire quickly, though, and prefer sunbathing to flight. Their homes are usually caves along the beach, cushioned with sand and decorated with beautiful shells and even pearls.
