Young ortus lunestre dragons are much like their cousins in that they rarely socialize and spend most of their juvenile lives eating. They are exceedingly picky, only dinning on the rare Calidis euphorbia. As they are among the only creatures able to digest the plant's toxic leaves, they are a valuable part of the Calidis ecosystem. The lunestre dragons' population must remain in balance with the plant's in order to ensure that the plants remain plentiful without overtaking the island.

Though the runes of the Ashen Temple remain largely untranslated, the murals in many of the chambers sport these dazzling creatures, their images illuminated with magical paint that has not faded for thousands of years. Ortus lunestre dragons are found throughout Calidis, but their population is concentrated near the Temple. Although the Temple is far too old for any of the lunestre dragons around today to remember its former inhabitants, they do seem to know something about the Temple's history and will often linger around the excavators, watching their work with fascination. They offer no hints to the researchers, but coo in approval at any new discovery. Their support is often appreciated after a hard day's work, and many of the excavators have been known to invite an ortus lunestre dragon or two to come home with them when it is time to leave the island.
