- Twice each year, near the longest and shortest days of the year, the Solstice Dragons come out of hiding. Their arrival - along with lighting of the Sun Stones of Surya - signals the beginning of grand festivals throughout much of the land. Because it has two heads, one favoring summer, the other winter, the Solstice Dragon is nearly always of two minds on any issue. Despite this conflict, most dragon experts take solace in the idea that two heads are better than one..
- —Nogard's description of the solstice dragon in The Book of Dragons
The solstice dragon has hot teeth and two heads full of teeth, so has a lot of bite power.
The solstice dragon rather flies away quickly from very strong enemies.
The solstice dragon can survive in any temperature not extremely hot or extremely cold (though some would say this isn't an ability). They fly very fast and can think quickly even in panic.
The solstice dragon breathes light hot enough to cause burn wounds and bright enough to permanently blind someone.
The solstice dragon has two brains in its two heads but when one head dies the other dies too.
During the day they show up, they always appear near the Sun Stones of Surya.
The solstice dragon has not much choice other than their small regular habitat.
They hide themselves under the rocks the night after the day they showed up and then disappear again to an unknown place.
Solstice dragons eat the rats and mice that come close to the Sun Stones of Surya.
Behavior and Personality
The solstice dragon is a proud creature that will never give the first attack against enemies weaker than itself except prey.
They usually show up in groups of 5-10 two times each year, though the dragons in this group seem to be different every time.
Relationship to Wizards
The solstice dragon can speak and understand human language. It gives wizards hard riddles and if they can solve them before they disappear again, they get bestowed with rewards.
When in a park
The solstice dragon can be bred during certain periods of the year, near solstice day and around december-january. You need a blazing dragon and the Earth element. They can also be bred at any time using a solstice dragon and any other Epic/Galaxy dragon.
How to care for
They require a lot of extra care during solstice day, as then they are very hungry.
We never saw two solstice dragons mate, so we believe they either mate only every century or even millennia, or mate in that unknown location where they are when they aren't near the Sun Stones. We don't know much about their life cycle but we know they can become 2000 years old.
On the longest day of the year, Hartfell saw a solstice dragon flying. He researched the breed but did not adopt the dragon.
Origin of Name
Originally, the solstice dragon was named "Longest Day Dragon", but when it also showed up on the shortest day of the year they changed the name to solstice dragon.
