Dragon hatchlings are grumpy little things. These ones in particular seem to like to destroy everything, and need to have a log nearby at all times, even when indoors. When enraged, the torveus dragon hatchling tears into the log, splintering it into many small pieces. If there is nothing nearby that is suitable for destroying, the hatchling won't mind carving up furniture instead. Any magi raising one of these companions must be very careful to teach the little one it's own strength, and how to properly vent its fury. No magi is foolish enough to not train a torveus dragon.
There was a time when many feared that these dragons would have to be destroyed, for they were truly violent creatures. Torveus dragons used to take great pleasure out of destroying villages and preying upon herds of cows and sheep. When the magi were turned to for aid, they decided to take all of the torveus eggs they could find. In this way, tame torveus dragons eventually outnumbered the wild ones, and the villagers no longer lived in fear. Torveus dragons are massive, beautiful creatures, and it is quite fortunate that their temperaments have become calmer. When enraged, these dragons have been seen to tear a whole tree from the ground. Fortunately, these companions are taught to be gentle around humans, and they retreat into the woods when they feel the need to destroy something. If someone is walking around the edge of the forest and hears a large crash, it may just be a dragon throwing a boulder. Young dragons love to challenge each other's strength, but they can sometimes injure themselves. Luckily, turveus dragons recover quite quickly. It is incredibly rare for a dragon to become injured enough to bleed. If this does happen, the blood is placed in a container while the dragon is being cared for. A bit of dragon's blood is very expensive, and for good reason. Even a single drop in a potion will enhance the brew a hundredfold.
