Frozen Male Hatchling
Species: Snow Dragon
Birthday: Sunday, April 1, 2012
Unless one keeps a sharp eye on their snow dragon hatchling, they'll lose it in a matter of moments. These little ones love to sleep in snowbanks, where they blend in perfectly and are impossible to spot. Once they have aged a bit, these little ones find exploring more interesting than sleep, and are easier to find. These excitable beasts love to explore every bit of the castle, although they tend to remain outdoors, away from the heat of fires. Snow dragon hatchlings are usually down by the frozen lake, playing with icist hatchlings and sliding about. Unlike their playmates, snow dragons don't like to get wet, and would much prefer creating tunnels through the snow than go swimming. <br/><br/> Snow dragons are distant cousins of icists, although these dragons don't resemble icists too much. Instead of being categorized as wyrms, these companions are thought to be true dragons. Other dragons certainly welcome them among them, but snow dragons fear their fire, and find it easier to make friendships with icists. Like icists, snow dragons possess the most interesting power of being able to change into snow. They are able to do so in a blink of an eye, and mimic the textures of surrounding snow, be it fluffy or icy. Though this skill could make them valuable spies, snow dragons use it mostly for fun; surprising their magi by appearing when least expected. Younger dragons find it very amusing to sneak into villages and entertain children by startling them. If a snow dragon is in its non-corporeal form and is accidentally made into a snow fort, it doesn't harm them. Instead, the individual snowflakes will slowly regroup, and the dragon will burst into form, shocking anyone nearby. As summer approaches, though, these companions start to lose their powers, until they decide to migrate. At the end of winter, these companions travel north to the Arkene, and avoid the summer months. They have extreme hatred for warm temperatures, as heat makes them quite ill. As soon as the end of fall approaches and the first storms fall, these creatures make their way back to The Keep, ushering in colder seasons.
