Description: BORN FROM NESTS CARVED IN GLACIERS near snowy taiga terrain or in shallow underground caves hidden in the Shadowfell, cobalt dragon wyrmlings are vicious savages. A cobalt dragon’s hunting grounds lie anywhere prey collects within its territory, such as melting glaciers or cold mountain springs. Although normally isolated, cobalt wyrmlings do form hunting parties when food is scarce or when a more powerful threat appears (such as the encroachment of civilization or the appearance of a hungry young white or black dragon).
Its scales are a reflective, metallic blue that blends in with the dragon’s arctic surroundings, allowing the wyrmling to escape or to ambush opponents.
