    Default Re: [Gauging Interest] Dragons, Dragons Everywhere! Redux

    Say, I finally got around to revising the SpOke pair from the old roleplay. Here they are.

    Spoiler: Sparkwing's Sheet
    Show
    Description
    Name: Sparkwing
    Type: Lesser lightning dragon

    Description: Sparkwing is a slender dog-sized blue dragon. His hide has a rough, ridged texture, and his scales are metallic and sometimes flicker with static charge. His eyes are very bright green. He has broad, leathery wings built for manoeuvrability and is a very agile flier. He has a pair of silvery horns that gently curve backward. His claws are silvery in colour and generally unremarkable. His tail is narrow with a tiny bulb on the end. He's not particularly strong, as might be expected, and relies more on his quick wings and quick wits to survive.

    Personality: Sparkwing is a timid, jittery sort. He startles easily and tries to avoid dangerous situations whenever possible. He's kind and respectful to those he trusts, but getting him to trust you is a challenge in and of itself. He doesn't like to make trouble or get into fights, partially out of compassion and partially out of cowardice. He can be extremely creative under pressure, mostly with ways to avoid large things with teeth or deathtraps. His main interests are puzzles and other intellectual challenges, preferably those that aren't too dangerous.

    Relationships: Sparkwing has a close bond with his foster sister Smoketail. The two usually work together to accomplish tasks, with Sparkwing handling the mental side while Smoketail handles the physical side.

    History: In the hills of the Erzaron Consortium, there was once a valley full of lesser dragons. This small creatures mostly kept to themselves, avoiding the attacks of dwarven hunters after hides and live dragons to sell as exotic pets. They came in a wide variety, with different colours and abilities, but they managed to live together in harmony.

    One of these dragons, a frost drake named Iceridge, longed to be a mother, but discovered to her dismay that she was completely infertile. However, after one particularly nasty raid by poachers, a family of fire dragons and a family of lightning dragons were all but wiped out, with only their eggs remaining. Iceridge decided to take the chance to raise these orphaned eggs as her own. From one clutch came Sparkwing, and from the other came Smoketail. Despite their differing breeds, Iceridge and the young dragons all viewed each other as family.

    Then, while the youngsters were still coming of age, disaster struck. The dwarves came back in force, seizing those dragons they could and killing the ones who resisted. Iceridge was captured, and Sparkwing and Smoketail were forced to flee. To make matters worse, the dwarves' attack wasn't just another raid; they had taken over the valley completely.

    Since then, Sparkwing and Smoketail have stayed together for protection and roamed the land looking for a place to settle. Although they sometimes dream of returning home, driving the dwarves out, and getting their family back together, they know there is little hope of doing so.


    Stats
    Strength: Poor
    Dexterity: Very high
    Constitution: Moderate
    Intelligence: Very high
    Wisdom: Medium-high
    Charisma: Medium-high

    Abilities
    Lightning Breath: Sparkwing's breath weapon is a bolt of electricity. Usually, it takes multiple shocks to kill anything bigger than a housecat, but it can still stun creatures momentarily and is very, very painful. It can also power or disable electronic devices, should anyone invent them.
    Electricity Immunity: Conductive scales that function like a Faraday cage and a well-insulated body beneath them make Sparkwing, for all intents and purposes, invulnerable to the harmful effects of electricity. Naturally, this includes his own breath.
    Charged Scales: Sparkwing's scales tend to build up static electricity, giving an annoying but harmless shock to anyone who touches him unexpectedly. They can also hold stronger charges temporarily, making him especially dangerous right after being struck by lightning or similar.


    Spoiler: Smoketail's Sheet
    Show
    Description
    Name: Smoketail
    Type: Lesser fire dragon

    Description: Smoketail is a stocky black dragon about the size of a dog. Her body is covered with thick, scaly plates. She has purple eyes. Her wings are long, slender and leathery, designed for speed; while she's not particularly nimble in the air, she can fly fast and make terrifying high-speed dives. She has two straight, white, rear-facing horns. Her claws are white and somewhat thicker than normal. Her tail ends in a sharp triangular blade. She's surprisingly strong and durable for her size, and capable of holding her own against much larger opponents.

    Personality: Smoketail is very blunt and straightforward. She can be abrasive, and doesn't have much patience for foolishness or disrespect. She is extremely protective of others, especially Sparkwing since he's her only real family left. She's fond of collecting treasures, especially magical ones, and she hates thieves with a passion.

    Relationships: Smoketail has a close bond with her foster brother Sparkwing. The two usually work together to accomplish tasks, with Sparkwing handling the mental side while Smoketail handles the physical side.

    Stats
    Strength: High, especially for her size
    Dexterity: Medium-high
    Constitution: Very high
    Intelligence: High
    Wisdom: Medium-high
    Charisma: Poor

    Abilities
    Fire Breath: Smoketail's breath weapon is a burst of flame. It isn't much hotter than a typical fire, but it burns longer and is harder to extinguish.
    Heatproof: Being a fire dragon, Smoketail is extremely resistant to high temperatures. Normal fire and her own breath weapon are harmless to her, and she can swim in lava without serious injury.
    Flaming Charge: One of Smoketail's favourite tactics is to wreath herself in her own flames, then slam into an enemy at high speed to smash and ignite them at the same time. It takes a moment for both her and her target to recover from the impact; although this can leave her vulnerable if she misses, she usually comes out better than whoever she hit does.
    Tail Slash: Smoketail's tail-blade isn't just decorative; it's a potentially deadly weapon. She often uses it to get an extra strike in while withdrawing to charging distance.

    When in doubt, use cute little dragons.

    Game and roleplaying stuff.
