Despite their airy appearance, Unakite dragons are a driven and ambitious species. Horns that curl outward and upward, a webbed double crest along the neck, and fluttery wings might make this dragon seem delicate. However, a thick forest of enlarged scales armor the underbelly and forelimbs while the ruffled tail tip acts as a distractor for prey or would-be aggressors. This sprightly baby is determined to strengthen lungs that will one day harness its internal furnaces.
One of The Dragonlings Series, a collection of originally-designed baby dragons based on minerals and semi-precious stones.
