Author Comments

pronounced GWIDE-nerth, and nicknamed Nerth, he is the middle child of the adopted family consisting of his younger (also adopted) sister Ni Lu and older (and adopted) brother Rong Kun. He is the most boisterous of the three and is the most violent. He often leaves the pack to find pretty dragonesses and raid other dragons of their treasure. He surprisingly has never been caught, but that might be due to the fact that he beats anyone senseless if they do catch him. He is the strongest of the siblings but is often out witted by Ni Lu and out smarted by Rong Kun. He respects and cares for them greatly but doesn't like to show it. He often bullies the others around but is eventually put in his place.

What is a Kalconi Western Dragon?

Kalconi is a specific species of western dragon. They are medium sizes and round muzzles with a box-like head. They have not tail extensions or decorations (horns, spikes or frills). The horns are typically straight but some can have horns curving up or down. They can have any number of "spikes" protruding from the cheeks. The larger/longer the spikes the older the dragon (as the spikes grow the weave along the body and become more flexible) . Having large nostrils, they have great sense of smell and rely on that more than sight as most of them are nearsighted (stuff in the distance is blurred). They live in large family groups with one or two males dominating (often the pair are brothers that are close in their relationship) a harem and their children. The males will often fight to the death to take over a harem and are fairly aggressive towards other males, even of other species. When males reach the adolescent age they must either leave the pack or submit to the leading male and become a guard on the outskirts of the territory. They are not allowed near the main harem during breeding season and will be chased off forever if they are found too close on purpose (they have trials to determine if the young males are there by accident or on purpose). It is very rare to see the males stay with their families to adulthood. Females come into heat two times a year and pregnancy will last for about half a year. So they can only be impregnated once a year and they can produce up to three eggs but typically only produce two. They normally live in the plains but can sometimes be seen valleys.
