Species: Jaktus Dragon
Birthday: Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Most everyone likes these hatchlings, with their bright colors and sociable natures. Of course, like any young, they are also irritating at times. The orbs that they carry with them are powerful weapons, able to shock people. These hatchlings often use this to their advantage. If one doesn't dodge one of these orbs when a hatchling throws it, they will get shocked. This attack makes a person immobile for several minutes, during which the young jaktus dragon dances around them, and perhaps nips at their ankles. As soon as one begins to move again, however, the hatchling is nowhere to be seen.
Jaktus dragons are thought to be from the east, from lands unknown. Their arrival was abrupt and unexpected, and almost ended in bloodshed. Jaktus dragons are social creatures, and did not hesitate to wander into towns. The people grew extremely agitated as excited dragons began knocking things over, and tried to force the dragons away. These companions did not take kindly to what they considered an attack, and retaliated. The blue orbs that jaktus dragons carry with them are not simply for show – they are full of magic. When thrown, these orbs shock and immobilize, and that was exactly what happened. Luckily for all, a magi was present when this unfolded, and gained back her movement first. She calmed the beasts down, and eventually all of these dragons were shown the way to The Keep, where they were welcomed. Despite not having wings, these dragons are usually in the air. Instead of being able to fly, they almost flit through the air, jumping much higher than should be possible. They are often found in the tops of trees, perched on thin branches that look much too delicate to hold a dragon's weight. Perhaps it is because jaktus dragons lack wings that they love to swim. They never hesitate to jump into the lake, and are quite graceful when underwater.
