- The midday dragon is naturally enchanted in a way that continuously forms the effects of the noonday sun directly overhead. As a result, the top of the dragon is perpetually warm and its shadow is always directly below it. This makes the dragon a popular source of shade in the summertime; younger dragons can be seen darting between its legs on especially hot days.
- —Nogard’s description of the Midday Dragon in The Book of Dragons.
The midday dragon is quite large, no matter what age, and has golden scales that glow radiantly at noon. Its shadow, no matter what time it is, is always beneath it.
Midday dragons' have a lot of power in their legs useful to kick.
The midday dragon is very warm, especially at the top of its body, and so are its legs it uses to attack.
As the shadow is always directly below it, it cannot be found by looking for a shadow, except when you stand in front of it and you can see it without only seeing the shadow.
The midday dragon produces a hot flame which is as bright as the sun at noon.
The neck is much colder than the rest of the body and has the thinnest skin, making it, combined with the huge size, an easy target.
Midday dragons prefer warm places with the sun visible during midday.
Midday dragons put their head and neck in the sand (or ground) for defense instead of building actual nests.
Behavior and Personality
Midday dragons are very friendly and even let younger dragons run between their legs as a shade.
Families live together, but it does not happen much that a midday dragon family meets another family.
Relationship to Wizards
Midday dragons will happily offer shade to wizards.
Midday dragons are herbivores. The ones in the Forests of Schloss are not all picky about their food, while the ones in the Sandara Desert eat Vitrum Scyphi (the whole plant, not just the nectar), Sandarian Saguaros, Cacti-Snacks and the Sandarian Cacti.
When in a park
How to care for
The midday dragon does not require a lot of care, rather they will try to care for the visitors of your park instead.
Midday dragons do not have any preferences, though they hate Blushrooms more than any other dragon.
Midday dragons live along with their family, and as they rarely encounter other families, they will mostly mate with a cousin or even brother/sister.
The mother is celebrated and cared for as long as the egg isn't hatched. After it does so, a grand celebration will be held for the baby.
An infant plays with and gets trained by older adolescents of their family.
Adolescents play with the infants.
Adults will care more about "adult things" rather than playing, even though their children remain very important in their lives.
The life cycle of a midday dragon looks a lot like that of a human. They become around 80-100 years old when not ill, but the older the weaker they become.
The midday dragon was discovered when the wizard who started The Great Dragon Faire came across a family when traveling to dragon parks to start the event. He took the family along and sold the eggs as prizes.
Origin of name
The wizard named them midday dragons for the fact they always have the effect of the midday sun above them.
