| Recessive Genes |
You may choose for a gene to be recessive. This means it will not show up on the physical appearance of your dragon. Choosing recessive traits will make them harder to pass to offspring. If you receive a physical trait from a different element (such as ‘aquatic limbs’ on an Earth dragon or ‘Wingless’ on a Fire dragon), you may make that recessive and choose one of the base element physical traits instead. Physical traits that are made recessive drop off of the gene entirely.
| Charged Traits |
When breeding parents with the same trait, sometimes an egg will have that trait…Charged. A Charged trait does not affect breedings, but it can give that dragon a unique appearance. Whether you choose to use Charged rules or normal rules is entirely up to you–charged markings simply have expanded design choices. You can find out the details of Charged traits on that specific page (IE: for Charged Stripes, check Stripes).

Beyond these traits, there are a few mutations not attached to any element. Italicized mutations cannot be inherited. All except for Independent and Genesis have a chance of appearing randomly in a clutch.
| Legacy Markings |
Legacy traits have had a drastic design change. To preserve the old markings and design opportunities for those eggs and dragons, a certain amount of dragons are allowed to show the old effect. If parents or grandparents have an ID before the cutoff ID, and the dragon inherited the trait from that relative, it may show the Legacy effect. The parent or grandparent before the cutoff ID must be in the visible lineage on the dragon’s profile.
| Retired Trait Names |
These traits had their names changed for one reason or another. If you encounter an egg with one of these traits, here is the translation!
