this dragon character is owned by Nightfury4eva and is the 2nd main character in the story Hearts of shadow
Copper lived with his mother and father and two siblings ( male: Pine female: Torrent) when dragon hunters killed his mother, his father became heavy with grief and rage, he took that out on Copper and his siblings, Copper left when he had the chance and never looked back. he found a new island and stayed there. he met a titan wing woolly howl named Elka, and fell hard for her, to his dismay she did not share his affections at first, she would avoid him and whack him with her tail. but Copper still persisted. he noticed Elka liked white roses, whenever she was sad or hurt she went over to this one bush in particular, in the middle of a small cove on the island. one day the bush died and Copper couldn't stand to see her sad. he left to find another bush when he did he carefully dug it up and planted it where the old one was, he then picked a red rose (white would mean he hurt the bush) and when she came to the spot she saw him and the new rose bush, and the two became close.
Copper is sweet, he has a great sense of humor and is very social. he is not easily annoyed but if something is directly hurting his friends he will act.
he does not do well under stress, he kinda freaks out if a ton of stress or pressure is put on him but all in all he is pretty chill.
testing his personality
so for most of my characters, I used mock situations to help me understand how to better use them... this situation- a random dragon is really injured...
"owwwww!' the dragon roared contorting in pain.
"uhhh.a-are you okay oh my Thor it looks really bad..." Copper whined.
"n-no.." the dragon responded.
"what do I do, what do I do????" Copper muttered trying to help.
Copper's fire is a hardened ball of sand shot with weak fire, it is especially strong on the eyes because hot sand in your eyes, no thank you. he can also funnel his fire to make it act like a sandblaster and if you've ever seen what those things can do that's terrifying.
Copper has decent vision, being able to see better than humans but not as good as some dragons. because Sand wraiths live their life with their heads in the sand (literally) it is assumed that vision is not their main sense...touch is. they need to feel vibrations underneath the sand to find their prey...because of that, he is extremely sensitive to his environment.
Copper is pretty strong, being able to launch himself out of the sand effortlessly and he can tunnel quickly in the sand. this implies that he has powerful upper body strength, as well as decent cardio and wing strength he is able to carry his weight for some distance.
Copper has very good stamina, being able to tunnel under sand for a long time with inadequate oxygen, in-flight he can fly for 40 miles at a constant speed non-stop. his skin is not as fireproof as other dragons but it is more breathable, meaning he can cool himself down quickly and moisture in the air will stick to him like an amphibian. so he can travel farther than most dragons on one wind.
in the air Copper is very agile, however, on land, he is kinda clumsy on land, constantly tripping over things and falling off of ledges. in the air Copper has amazing maneuverability he screws up a lot when it comes to this though, mostly when he's talking, much like the twins he loses focus when his mouth is moving.
