- A helpless romantic, the wizard Adam Anteen always loved diamond dragons. Unfortunately, these beautiful creatures are hard headed and refuse to live anywhere outside the frozen highlands. Under a lot of pressure Anteen discovered a way these incredible dragons can live on the Gemstone Island. This dragon cannot be bred at this time.
- —Nogard's description of the diamond dragon in The Book of Dragons
Diamond dragons have a beige color with a brown-whitish belly. On their horns, back, wings and tails are beautiful diamond formations. They are, like a lot of Gemstone Dragons, among the smallest dragon species.
Carbon Diamond Dragon
Among the few diamond dragons existing, this variant is the most common and held in parks.
Moissanite Diamond Dragon
This variant is exceptionally rare, even among the species. Their crystals are a little darker and softer. This variant only lives near a specific cave in the Frozen Highlands.
Their horns and tail spike, which are the hardest of all dragon's, are the main weapons. However, diamond dragons usually avoid fights.
Diamond dragons have a hard skin and even harder crystalline formations on their horns and wings. No claw can make a scratch in them, not even Apocalypse Dragon tails.
Adapted to their environment, diamond dragons grew claws on their wings to bury themselves in the snow while holding their light blue wings up for camouflage. A lot of dragonologists don't call the "claws" claws, but rather some sort of crystalline formation, and thus the diamond dragon is not yet classified as a wyvern.
Diamond dragons breathe carbon dioxide, just like humans, but they can alter it to have a visible light blue color. When they do this, it looks like diamonds in gas form. This is not a real weapon though.
Their crystals may be too hard to scratch, they are also very dense and may break when receiving strong impacts.
Like a lot of Gemstone Dragons, diamond dragons are petrivoric. They prefer diamonds, but any stone containing carbon is good. The pressure in their body turns the carbon into the diamonds on their wings and gems in parks.
Behavior and Personality
Diamond dragons tend to be stubborn and persistent. Like many other Gemstone dragons, they love shiny things.
The dragons with the longest horn and shiniest diamonds are usually at the top of the chain.
Relationship to Wizards
Because they refuse to live anywhere outside the Frozen Highlands, diamond dragons only occasionally encounter wizards. They are brutal, but only actually attack when provoked. DDLA has ranked them as 2.
Origin of Name
Diamond dragons are (obviously) named after their diamond formations on their wings.
