The Blue Dragon
of reading - words
Blue dragons are extremely voracious and terribly protective of their territory, they love spending long hours preparing ambushes for unwary animals and travellers, and also spend long hours remembering their successes and admiring their trophies.
This dragon has large ears of strange shape and a large horn on the muzzle. It smells like ozone and its blue scales reflect sunlight.
The scales of a blue dragon hardly enlarge with age, but become thicker and harder, their color can vary from an iridescent azure blue to a deep indigo blue, In all cases, the constant abrasion of the sand gives them a brilliant infinite that they never lose, so it is theoretically easy to spot a blue dragon in the middle of a desert plain, However, it will hide most often by sinking into the sand, leaving only its head hanging out,
Blue dragons love to glide in the warm desert air currents; they fly during the day, when the temperature is the highest, some almost blend into the blue sky and have developed the habit of using their own color to their advantage in combat,
In combat, they prefer to keep their distance from the opponent, so that they can use their breath (in the form of lightning) at full power and minimize the risks to be taken, they like to attack by falling directly above their prey, or by sinking into the ground until it approaches within 30m, a blue dragon will only abandon the battle if he is seriously wounded, because retreat is for him a sign of cowardice,
Blue dragons are found in deserts and in the middle of arid windblown plains, as well as in hot and humid arid lands, they particularly appreciate dull and bare environments because the few obstacles - rocky projections or dunes - do not block the panorama of their territory, they can spend hours watching their domain, looking for intruders and admiring their possessions,
Most blue dragons live alone, especially because they hate the idea of sharing their property, but when you meet a family of blue dragons, the male will attack savagely to protect his property - his partner and cubs. The female will also participate in the fight if the opponent is particularly threatening,
Blue dragon caves are vast complexes of underground caverns, although they collect everything that seems precious to them, they particularly appreciate sapphires,
Blue dragons can eat anything, and are sometimes forced to eat snakes, lizards and desert plants to calm their enormous appetite. Domestic animals like camels are their favorite food; when they can, they eat whole caravans of these animals, which they will have cooked with a flash,
