Spotlight: The Moon Dragon

The moon dragon is a very rare species but at the same time does not possess any true element to control for itself. The moon dragon gets its name because of its pure white scales and hatches only during a full moon.

It is possible for them to partner with a Dragon Guardian but is even more rare than them actually existing. Thus far there are only 3 accounts of a Dragon Guardian with a moon dragon. The first being Tosh, the first Dragon Guardian, the second Kalio, the first Drow, and the third being Emily, the last Dragon Guardian. A moon dragon only has a partner who they believe will do great things in life but not necessarily good things. Due to this fact someone who is partnered with one is treated with the highest respect.

There have been accounts where a Dragon Guardian attempted to color their dragon white with paints but it has always failed and they were forced to live in shame with no power and loss of their dragon. Other times people didn’t even bother to paint their dragon but tried to grab a moon dragon egg but were swalled by the mother dragon near the cave as punishment.

Although they do not have an elemental ability of their own they do possess the power of aging at will. A moon dragon can sense when their Guardian needs them to be stronger by and can speed up their aging process threefold. This has only been seen and recorded twice but it is believed Tosh’s dragon also sped his aging process up.

As Dragon Guardians were no longer needed and hunted once again the moon dragon learned and taught many of the others to survive by changing their form to that of a human like appearance. They named themselves Draconi and lived withing the mountains while only leaving for the most important of things.

    1. I thought the picture was pretty cool as well. Sadly I am not the owned of the picture but had it saved on my computer from a while back so no way to backtrack the owner. Though the concept of the moon dragon is mine.

  1. Interesting concept–what is the connection between the white scales and the time of birth? Is the full moon birth the cause of the white scales, or are the white scales what cause the moon dragons to wait for a full moon to be born?

    1. It is more symbolic than anything genetic really. In the book the very first Dragon Guardian is protected by the moon and a dragon in his sleep and the scales are sort of a symbol that they have a deep connection with the moon. The scales have nothing to do with the time of birth either but as one of the moon dragons have put it “We just feel that is the right time to be born just like a child does not come until they wish to” pretty much.

      1. It makes sense that you as the writer would link them symbolically. As someone who follows various dragon theories through blogging, I just was trying to understand how the connection was understood/explained inside of your fictional world. For instance, what if a different colored dragon was born when the moon was full? Or what stops a dragon that is going to be born white from being born on a day when the moon is not full?

        1. Ah well then genetic wise I kind of went “The god created them to be like that” As far as if another dragon was born on the full moon it would change anything about them. It’s just a random time of day for them. The dragons scales determines their race such as if two African Americans have a child they won’t give birth to a ginger. The reason they are born during the full moon as I said is because that is when they feel the time is right and its when they are basically their strongest. Not sure if that explains better I guess on a racial side of things?
