Please be aware that this page may contain spoilers. If you do not want spoilers, please leave now!

This page is used to store information on newly-released dragons and on-going events that have incomplete data, to be used for article creation once the release or event is complete.


RULES OF NEW DRAGON RELEASES AND DC EVENTS
All newly released dragon and event information is to be compiled on this article only.
Do Not
  • Add the dragon(s) to the Which Egg Is Which page.
  • Add the dragon(s) to the Dragon Types page.
  • Add the dragon(s) to any page apart from this one.
  • Create the dragon(s) article before the dragons of TJ09 or users grow up, or create an event page while the event is still in progress. This includes the wait of several days after the adult sprite(s) have been released in order to ensure adequate time for all information to be collected, for the artists to submit any extra information they wish to give as well as to help determine the final rarity of the dragon itself.
  • Add information if it has not been seen in the cave yet.
  • Do not add the spriter's alts of a dragon. (The DC-Wiki team will ask the artist(s) for permission to upload them)
These rules apply while the dragon is being released and until after several days have passed where user's dragons have begun becoming adults. After that, the dragons' article(s) can be created.

Failing to comply with these rules will result in a warning or even a suspension (one week suspension for creating the dragon's or event's article before the dragons have grown up or before the event has ended).

Staff Messages
  • Remember, adding information not yet seen in the cave is NOT allowed. We know you know it, we know half of it as well. But please, don't add it until it has been found in the cave.
  • If you add interesting information from speculations made on the forums, please be sure to add this information to the Rumor section unless it is absolutely a proven fact. See the current facts/rumors under each breed for examples.
  • IMPORTANT: Information marked Fact has been confirmed by either staff or spriters, or is currently viewable by all in-cave. Information marked Rumor is rumor- there is no way to prove this information true or false, and though much of it seems like it will be true, do not accept it as true information. This especially means that you should not present this information to people in the forums as hard fact.
  • Holiday Releases: If one of the holiday artists keeps their scroll hidden, respect that fact! The DC-Wiki team will contact and ask them if they would be willing to share the images of their spriter's alt. Do not post links to the spriter's alt, because it may result in them getting sick.

And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing."
"Tetra Dragons are often found in large groups. They are very social both with their own species and with others. Tetra Dragons are very active and change locations quite frequently. Males defend small parts of territory within the groups but major conflicts rarely occur. Tetra Dragons prefer territory with lots of natural hiding places and can be skittish."

Additional Information

Tetra Dragons Extra Info

Habitat: Tetra dragons live on the coasts and in the jungle, preferring more humid climates. They need habitats with easy access to hiding places.

Diet: While Tetra dragons do eat some vegetation, the majority of their diet consists of fish and small rodents. If a Tetra Dragon’s diet isn’t satisfactory for their needs, their colors will fade.

Mating: Tetra dragons mate for life in the wild, though in captivity it is possible to to match them with multiple mates.

Wild Behavior: Tetra dragons have a poisonous bite that they use as a defense mechanism. In the wild, they are somewhat more independent than their tame counterparts.

Tame Behavior and keeping: Tame Tetra dragons do not make affectionate companions. While they are very dependent on others of their own kind, they can be standoffish around humans.

Hatchling behavior: Hatchlings tend to be clingy and need constant companionship. If you do not earn their trust they will be skittish around you. Hatchlings are very active an often get themselves in trouble.

Magic: Tetra dragons breath fire but that is about the extent of their magical abilities.

Meta: The Tetra Dragon was a personal nostalgia project. I wanted to create a dragon that I could imagine being released when I first joined. The colors are based on neon tetra fish - my favorite fish from my aquarium growing up. Hope you enjoy them!

"Fire Gem Dragons are a colorful, flamboyant breed often found in hot climates, particularly around active volcanoes. Their broad tails store the flames they breathe, which are colored by the heavy amount of minerals in the water they drink. These dragons come in a variety of colors, and will collect shiny trinkets and stones that match their own coloration. Despite their hoarding tendencies, though, Fire Gem dragons are social and will often congregate in groups and show off their collections while fawning over the stones their friends and rivals have gathered, occasionally arranging trades."

Sub-Quote:
Laura-Borealis:
[q]

the blue male's pose, with his paws spread - is he showing off some gems? He so looks like he's saying "Look at my shinies, aren't they amazing!"

[a]
Funny story
I was working on them and got stuck on "what do I do with my hands"

Birdzgoboom jokingly suggested "jazz hands"

It ended up sticking
End Sub-Quote

Behavior:
Oh man, these guys love shiny. They love being shiny and collecting shiny. Being rather prissy
they keep their gem like scales immaculately clean, and can often be found polishing their
hide.

Very Social critters, they tend to gather frequently for gossip and trade. In their society it is
frowned upon to steal from another dragons collection. Doing so could get one banished from
the group.

They don't have a set social ladder but often the dragon with the largest horde is considered a
leader of sorts. Others will come to them to help settle disputes and such.

It also isnt to unheard of for a few Fire Gems to be found trading with humans.

Creation History:

-Originally "Gem Derguns"
*breifly had a dr thread "Gem derguns"
* Believe it was made in early 2012
*it fetured lots of delightful spelling erros and types. (Note I fail at spelling and make all the
typos)
-Original concept had them as
*Emerald
*Sapphire
*Ruby
-All the sprites from the thread got redone, a lot
*except the Red male, He was only updated so a few folks might recall him!
*Green Female wins a being redone 4 times ˙ ͜ʟ˙
* Fun fact, the fire is litteraly the dragons color pallete inverted.

- The very sharp pallete from white - black was chosen on purpose. I wanted these kids to be
very shiny, some of the pallete was strait up taken from gem stones.


*Gem dragons have been something I've wanted to do for years, but never finished. Often I would have one or two sprties "done" only to come back later and scrap them. I only got the drive to really finish these off after the christmas event. I was off work on dissability and due to have surgery in early January, due to that I just really wanted to finish this project. Some awesome people helped me do it too! At the time I had 4/6 adult poses"finalized" but was struggling on the other 2.
The awesome JereduLevenin drew me up the Red and Green Female.
Mid-way threw working on these birds and Pie tossed the idea of despis like tails (Good catch people who noticed the similarities!) Birds also helped me position the tail on the Red female, damn I love it.
Then the hatchlings needed to get done. Man, i hate doing hatchlings. To re rescue again JereduLevenin drew me 6 differrent ones! (I was originally going to be lazy and make like maybe 3? but I couldn't let the awesome art go to waste!)
Finally TheCompleteAnimorph helped me out a ton with the S1's and descriptions. I had a few basic ideas
like "they are shiny and like shiny" but she really helped me flesh it out and write it in a beautiful way.
(Really writing descriptions are not my thing)
