How they feel about
: extremely curious - the elders are of two minds about them, but her true influences have been the friendly tribes below Bald Mountain and then the Marked Man when he arrives. They don't seem so bad!
Elves -- herders: how cool is that, animals do do what you want!
Elves -- magic users: they're amazing, I could watch them all day making things with their powers!
Elves -- bond-riders: *giggles* we're all riders, right?
Trolls, etc: haven't heard anything good about these creatures yet. But still - don't judge!
Bond Animal Info if any: temporary bonds with any given small animal, will pair with a dragon too.

Skills: watching animals, keeping fires lit, and telling jokes. She watches out for the younger kids when they arrive, and really enjoys this task - there are plenty younger kids, since she's among the first born of Bald Mountain's new generation!

History: Hardly a day has gone by without her mother Shrike insisting she's the most amazing child in the world. Once she became more an adult herself, she learned about how long Shrike had held off recognizing Cinder, because of the worry that she had over losing any child to Humans or worse. It's almost impossible for her to believe - because of course, all she's ever known is the safety of Bald Mountain and its people and dragons!

"The eggs are so little," Dragonfire commented, this odd hatching happened in the middle of the summer and on a world which was well-known to the other Bald Mountain elves, Ryslen's Nidus. There weren't very many present, and that was okay, since there really weren't that many eggs to go around.

A delicately colored Amethyst hatched and immediately began squawking for attention. She was very unlike most others in this nest, and while not annoying in the slightest to Dragonfire, apparently she was going to be asked to hush up so the others could enjoy their experience.

"It's okay, Kenya," Dragonfire purred to her new friend, "I know the feeling of being shushed. We'll just leave, if they want it to be quiet." How she already knew the dragonets name, perhaps she'd known all along. Like Dragonfire was able to detect emotions in other animals, this Lian was happy to be her friend too.


Kenya did not quiet down when they reached the Holt, her noisy behavior had cost a hunting party their chance to bag a great boar. This time though, even Dragonfire knew that it was about time to teach her little half-grown bond how to hunt silently.

But it was way more than that... why was she being so loud?


Probably because when she'd grown a little more, the adult male Lians were very, very interested in her. After all, there were plenty of bigger dragons out there, but they weren't large enough to compete for most of them. The mini-dragoness proudly flaunted herself in front of the pair who called White-Eyes their bond, and Dragonfire snickered because somehow, they'd have to choose which of them would sire her offspring - first, really,  because they would surely both.
