Frozen Male Hatchling
Species: Karadis Dragon
Birthday: Friday, January 20, 2012
Karadis dragon hatchlings are most interesting companions. Even at a young age, they learn to control their powers over water. The few times they visit Lake Lakira, these hatchlings clean the water for others and create small whirlpools. These whirlpools only last for a few minutes, as young karadis dragons do not possess their full powers yet. Their rare appearances are met with joy from other companions, though the dragons remain far away from others and do not linger long. Karadis dragon hatchlings are shy creatures and prefer to remain deep underwater. Though they remain by their parent's side for a year or so, these little ones love to explore on their own, and are soon able to defend themselves. The small nubs they are born with grow into powerful horns, and the hatchling is free to wander where it will without fear.
Though many magical creatures find the company of humans enjoyable, others prefer to live in secrecy. These animals usually choose isolation because of the dangers humans pose, though for some it is just their nature. Karadis dragons are one such species. These majestic dragons are most effective at eluding humans since they live on ocean floors, which are nearly impossible for humans to explore. They have no need to venture to the surface, though dragons living at The Keep show themselves more often. They are wary of doing so, as humans have not reacted to their presences kindly in the past. Only younger hatchlings are vulnerable to attack, and there is usually an older dragon nearby for protection. It would be quite foolish to attack a fully grown karadis dragon. They are massive companions, almost matching the leviathans in size. Their appearances are enough to warn away predators, though they are adept at magic as well. Karadis dragons display amazing power over water, and are able to control the element with ease. When certain areas of the sea become over fished, or if animals are treated cruelly, these dragons are quick to respond. Sometimes, massive whirlpools will come into existence, or waves will capsize boats. Conversely, if a village loses valuable crops, their fishing may suddenly become very successful. As for the magi, having one of these powerful companions is quite beneficial. Any journey made by sea will be very swift, with the currents working in one's favor. Karadis dragons are thought to be the rulers of the water, presiding over oceans and seas to ensure a balance is kept.
