The wings of a purebred storm dragon are large compared to their body, with the leather attaching at their shoulders and extending down the sides of their legs. Their tails are long and rat-like, trailing behind them as they fly. Their faces are flatter than other dragons, and their nose is enlarged so they can smell their way through torrential downpours. Their ears are very sensitive to noise and their brain instinctively tunes out sounds similar to rain and wind. They eat large birds and insects that find themselves lost in the wind currents of a storm. Their velvet scales are hydrophobic, and combined with their leather wings, they can fly through a storm with ease and execute complex aerial maneuvers.
Default traits – Wyvern, Rat Tail, Leather Wings, Fruit Snout, No Crest, Fingered Limbs, Velvet Scales
Storm dragons are fairly rare, since they seek out traits that are universally frowned upon. They seek a bond with the mentally unstable or individuals that have faced far too much strife to give a care in the world. The intense competition they feel towards fellow dragons and the constantly changing conditions of their favorite flight weather causes them to gravitate towards an adaptable Rider that will have no second thoughts about defending them. Since a bonded dragon is considered a second self, the dragons and Riders are never a danger to each other. They also have a crooked sense of humor, so they will impart that to their Riders. These traits aren’t all bad, though—in the case of a Rider who is dealing with a troubled past, their dragons can help them cope and gain a new purpose in life. No matter the case, storm Riders appear inscrutable and keep their true intentions hidden.
Known Rider Attributes:
- Poor Listener
- Easily Distracted
- Picky Eater
*Riders never have all attributes at the same time.
Storm magic is always a risky business. Unlike the other types of magic, even very skilled dragons can have their spells turned on them. Their spells will variably take on the form of other elemental magic. They can use noise manipulation of wind dragons to echolocate in the darkest environments. They can combine the magic of ocean, wind, and thunder dragons to conjure up a storm. They can whip up dust and debris through the power of Earth dragons and create a catastrophic landslide. Perhaps the only elemental magic of their own—something not made through combining the magic of others—is the ability to freeze other objects. Snow seems to be exclusive to their kind.
Of course, not all magic takes on a physical form. Probability manipulation is no issue for them, making gambling quite a lucrative occupation for incognito Storm Riders. They can curse those they hate with bad luck and grace people who win their favor with a streak of luck. Any time they apply a luck spell, the opposite amount of luck must be taken or applied to someone else. To cause a bit of mischief, they can imitate the voices of others perfectly…although their acting ability isn’t quite on par with Wind dragons, so they won’t fool too many people.
On top of the general Tier IV magic effects, your dragon can have these traits. This is only available to dragons with Tier IV Storm magic or Elemental Anomaly. Feel free to get creative and use things outside of this list.
- Frozen areas
- Body parts turned into storm clouds or twisters
- Odd Ears
