OMG! A dragon!The dragons are a species that have two forms. Once, a long time ago, they had an endless amount of forms.
AnatomyIn one form they are covered in scales. They have 4 legs with paws that have five talons on the front legs and four talons on the back legs. They have large wings that they can fly 180 km/h with. They have long tails and some of them have talons or bone plates along their spines. Their necks are long and their heads are proportionate to their necks. Most of them also have horns. In their other form, they walk on two legs and have two arms. They have two hands with five fingers each and two feet with five toes each. They have long pointy ears like the elves and most of them decide to keep their horns and their tails in their bipedal forms, but proportioned to their bipedal bodies. Their four-legged shape is their original form, they can of course change it to look however they want it to look just like they can do with their bipedal form. However, it takes practice to change the building blocks into something new and then change between those building blocks. All dragons have pale eyes. It does not matter how hard they try, they can not change the colors of their eyes. So you can always recognize a dragon by the pale color of their eyes. They are usually white but some dragons have very pale amber or blue eyes.
Genetics & ReproductionThe dragons are the only species that can reproduce with other species. As they can change the building blocks of their form. With this, they can mate with an elf and get an elf or a halfling child. However, a dragon that is in a House or an Order are expected to mate with another dragon to keep the species thriving. Dragons who mate with each other in their bipedal form also get halfling children, which is not acceptable in most dragon cultures. When a dragon mates with another dragon in their four-legged form they will lay around 1-18 eggs. There are different colored dragons, nobody knows why as they don't appear to have come about because of where the dragons originated. Since it is believed that the dragons came from another world a couple of billions of years ago. Like with their eyes they can not change the colors of their scales. Their bipedal form can have different colored hair or skin but their scaled form does not lie. The rarest colors are gold, silver, and multi-chromatic. These rare colors have only been seen on Ancient dragons, so it is believed that all dragons who have these colors will become ancients. An Ancient is a dragon that becomes a whole lot older than the average life span of 102 years. The oldest currently living Ancient is 13503 years old. The most common colors are white, brown, red, yellow, and blue.
A blue and a red dragon couple can get children that are blue, red, purple, and violet.
A purple and orange dragon couple can only get brown and white children.
