Description: COPPER WYRMLINGS PREFER to dwell in, and hunt from, the safety of rocky terrain that features great crags and protrusions. This environment allows them to hide from threats or to mimic the tactics of older coppers when attacking prey. They develop their covetous nature early, and some copper parents encourage this by rewarding one offspring in view of the others, stoking jealousy and—they believe—the urge to perform better for greater reward.
Unlike many other dragons, copper dragons don’t dramatically change in color or shape as they age. Their scales are a lustrous copper at birth, and their wings are fully developed.
