- Galaxy dragons are Ashlee's absolute favorite type of dragon. So when her parents told her about the arrival of the Comet dragon, she could hardly form complete sentences. "C-Can we p-please go visit the dragon park?" Ashlee stuttered. That night, she watched the comet dragons execute supersonic dives that ignited bright coronas of vaporizing ice. As she watched them zip and zoom in bright streaks that lit up the night sky, Ashlee was sure that the comet dragon would be her new favourite. Untill the next galaxy dragon came along, of course.
- —Nogard's description of the comet dragon in The Book of Dragons
Comet dragons have no true weapons other than their magic. They are typically peaceful and don't bother other dragons or wizards.
If harassed or threatened, comet dragons can escape at supersonic speed. They are one of the fastest dragons excluding those that travel faster than light by warping space-time with magic.
Comet dragons, like all galaxy dragons, live in outer space. Instead of settling down on a particular celestial body, comet dragons usually orbit a particular star for their entire lifespan. They cannot survive outside a galaxy habitat for long on earth though.
Comet dragons will orbit practically any star.
Comet dragons do not build nests.
Unlike most galaxy dragons, comet dragons do not use radiation of the sun or stars. They do not eat at all. Because of this, they are classified as autotrophics.
Behavior and Personality
Most galaxy dragons are dreamers who just aimlessly float around, barely aware that they live. Comet dragons, however, are realists who enjoy living by exploring as much of the universe as possible and just like being cool.
Relationship to Wizards
It looks like that as long as a comet dragon isn't consumed by a black hole, is murdered by another creature or gets pulled by gravity of a star, and burns to death, comet dragons are immortal.
Origin of Name
Comet dragons are named for their life cycle, which is similar to that of comets, and for their appearance when flying, which is also similar to that of a comet.
Comet dragons are associated with Astronomancy. They are one of few dragons that uses magic regularly in their everyday lives. Their magic enables them to achieve speeds faster than light, to derive energy from cosmic radiation, and to use telekinesis.
