About

The scales of this tall, elegant dragon shine like polished silver, and its tail has a feathered appearance.

At the end of their childhood years, a silver dragon is usually able to protect their protectors in turn. An entire family, even across several generations, can have the fortune of benefiting from a silver dragon’s protection. The course of the dragon’s life can depend on the intrigues of their parents, in which the young dragon may want to take part. At times, the young are used unwittingly to weaken their parents, a favorite tactic of green dragons who have gained insight into these intrigues. The resulting conflict can embroil entire dynasties of silver and green dragons through their mortal agents and the realms they hold sway over, with epic battles waged in the skies.

Far removed from such complex preoccupations, some young silver dragons use their limited shapeshifting ability to travel incognito among the mortal species, sometimes supporting the odd cause that catches their interest.
