Description: ADAMANTINE WYRMLINGS ARE BORN STARVING, and they swiftly set out to hunt for food. Dependent on darkness and shadows to hide from larger predators, these creatures might not see light for the first months or years of life. They quickly develop the territoriality and temper of their parents, and this aspect of their nature occasionally results in adamantine wyrmlings killing one another.
These wyrmlings are a dark, dull gray. Their scales are already heavy, but they lie flat, rather than forming overlapping edges as they do on older dragons.
