- The Promethium Dragon re-emerged from the Rift awash with an eerie, buzzing energy. The wizards tried to solve the riddle of what they called 'Rift Fire' but were severely disappointed in the end.
- —Nogard's description of the promethium dragon in The Book of Dragons
The promethium dragon has a light green, glowing color and a dark blue belly. It has black spikes, horns, teeth and wings. There is always a glowing radioactive light coming from it.
The black horns are toxic and very hard and are used as weapons.
The promethium dragon has a special ability that no other known dragon has; it is radioactive. Only dragons with a very thick skin are kind of immune to this, but only if unwounded.
Promethium dragons can sense how thick materials are, this includes the skin of other dragons. This way, it knows if he has to attack its enemy or just let the radioactive rays do their work. They have perfect eyesight in the dark too.
Promethium dragons produce even more radioactive promethium that is not only dangerous for the life of other creatures but it harms nature too.
Promethium dragons often do not live long because they suffer from their own radioactivity.
Luckily for nature's health, promethium dragons do not live freely in nature except if ones bred in parks are set free.
Those who are set free will often seek deep underground caves to live in, or sometimes even attempt to use magic portals created by humans to travel to the Andromeda Galaxy.
Promethium dragons do not sleep and thus do not build nests.
The promethium dragon does not require to eat, but if it does so it will almost surely be meat from small bats.
Behavior and Personality
The promethium dragon is very aggressive and will try to kill as many creatures as possible in its short life.
In the rare case that two promethium dragons meet each other outside a park, they will instantly become mates. They can change their gender whenever they want.
Relationship to Wizards
The wizards have almost never found promethium dragons outside parks, and those who did did not survive their radioactive rays.
Promethium dragons just mate with the first other promethium dragon they meet, as any other dragon they will attempt to mate with dies of the radioactivity. Because promethium dragons in the wild only rarely meet others of their kind, they can change their gender whenever they want to make mating not be a problem.
A promethium dragon egg is left by its parents as soon as it is laid, because its radioactivity may make its parents lives even shorter. As soon as it hatches, the baby dragon will just wander around aimlessly.
The baby dragon just wanders around in the caves without actually knowing where it is going.
At this point, the promethium dragon realizes that it has only a short life to live and will try to find other creatures to kill to get revenge for having such a short life. If it meets another promethium dragon, it will stay with it to become mates when they become adults. A promethium dragon will become adolescent at the age of 3.
A promethium dragon becomes adult at the age of 10. It will still do the same as if it was a juvenile but will mate if possible.
Promethium dragons have very short lives and die at the age of 17 because of their own radioactivity.
Origin of Name
The promethium dragon is named after its resemblance to the element promethium, a lanthanide with number 61.
Promethium dragons are naturally enchanted to be radioactive. (However, the magic of Dragon Parks undoes this effect.) They also are related to Metallomancy and Umbramancy. They are one of the few dragons to be associated with Radiomancy.
