The idea was to create a new form of the dragon-type creature that features heavily in some of my art. The "original" dragon is a sea-dwelling type and as such I felt that this one should be one that lives in the skies.

These dragons are completely transparent and can't easily be seen in the daylight. They are magic creatures and this magic allows them to rest on top of clouds in the daytime. When night falls, they leave their clouds and hunt for air spirits and other magical creatures. They are quite harmless towards humans and most land-dwelling creatures. The only time that you can easily see these creatures is during thunderstorms, where their bodies become elctrically charged, making them light up like a christmas tree. It's said to be a sight more beautiful than the northern lights, when a group of these dragons take flight during a thunderstorm.
