Ay All!  

Just out of curiosity.
Cause I assume most of those here be Dragons (if You fit the criteria of one who is not, I apologise ^^'), And I know of what TYPE many are. But what do you do?
Do you have special abilities?
Any weaknesses?

Just for fun I wanted to know. =3
I'll edit this later with mine. =).

Nothing really
Just fire, really, a very hot one. And ultra-hard scales. They're also immune to fire, so I can toast people without toasting myself. I can also fly, in both forms.

Weaknesses are... well, physically non-existent, except maybe for diseases, I haven't established that yet. And maybe the wings. And if I swallow something nasty - that 'something' isn't very likely to survive, though.

Psychologically, nothing unique. The usual... with a tendency to hunt, eat and blow my top, which is when I blow everyone else's right off their necks.

Oh, one more. If you send a nuke or a giant artillery shell I might not survive. But face it, where do you find a giant artillery shell and a gun powerful enough to fire it at least to the top of Mount Everest?

Anyway, my non-morphic form is big, so that's a factor in itself. And my morphic form is larger-than-human-average, so I can at least hide if in a spot. Not many of those, though.

Re: Nothing really
Wow. Your much stronger than Azazzii ;w;. -fail-
I'd like to see something survive after an explosion.

Re: Nothing really
The only unique things are the scales and the fire. Everything else is quite typical of dragons. Well, maybe not yours - I'm not yet sure if you can breathe fire.

Re: Nothing really
Well, Azazzi is not a normal Dragon lD.

I still find what people say interesting about their dragons.

Re: Nothing really
Hmm, would never have guessed from the hair.

And there's no one else... yet.

Re: Nothing really
ha ha.

And your right!
I guess I'll have to make another post here soon! >)

They've left me no choice ^-^.

Re: Nothing really
I could say the same for teen_furs. It's ticking me off.

I know..hmm gotta start something that will create chatter. But what?

Here I had begun preparing this nice letter Z-based poem including wonderful words like "zeitgeist", "zephyr", "zeal", "zalambdodent", and "zenzizenzizenzic"... but then I got lazy and decided to just tell you 'bout it.

To give you a background, my character was actually based on a game I still have wet dreams about making. However as of now that dream is still far from ever being realized. Anyway, Zeke doesn't really have any 'special abilities' as it were aside from those granted by physiology, IE the wings which means he can sorta glide (like not break his legs if he fell from less than 10 meters 'glide').

Well... there is his rage thing. This, however, is a very rare development and for back story, which is what got him in trouble in the first place. Since I don't think it would be polite to fill this post, I'll stop here.

Zeke is nothing more than a run-of-the-mill 6' 1" anthropomorphic green European dragon. No fire, no growth, no crazy flight or anything like that. I'm sorry if he's so uninteresting!

He does have a considerable weakness, his past. I'd love to tell you the whole story, but you'd have to be interested first. :) I can't really think of much else to say here about him.

Oh, he's ambidextrous. And has a bit of a pot belly.

Re: Zeke
DARN! And I was hoping for such a poem to come along <D. Aww.I like Zeke ^-^~*. He sounds like a nice simple Dragon :3. Sept for his rage problems. Heh, work that belly off! -runs around a bit-

Ouch, my head hurts. Are you an English major? 'Cause I don't know what's zenzizenzizenzic or what.

Anyway, I think that falling too close to the ground may sometimes be a problem, while there shouldn't really be a height limit, aside from terminal velocity. But I digress.

Like Azazzii said, rather a simple dragon, except for his paunch. But I do suppose simple is sometimes best. Anyway, it's all up to you, and overly complicated can also cause its own problems.

And I wouldn't mind hearing his backstory, I'm quite interested. And most dragons have some sort of rage anyway, you know, "Stupid humans invading my lair! Crush them!" So rage isn't all that new.

Oh, and I'm rather ordinary as well. Just the usual.

Re: Zzzzz...
Zenzizenzizenzic means "The square of the square of the square", or a number to the eight power. Wiki has an article on the word. And no, I'm no English major, I just have a real big interest in personal lingual 'embellishment' as it were. :)

If Drak comes with a backstory, I wouldn't mind hearing about that too. Heck, a cool post for this community would be an explanation to a bunch of our backstories, assuming everyone has one... if a post like that comes along I'll write it, but if not I'll send it to you VIA e-mail or something.

The "rage thing" isn't so much a general getting angry type of personality deal but rather an intense physical and metaphysical alteration allowing for "bullet-time" awareness, heightened speed, and increased muscle capacity that originates chemically, from a particular high-tech piece of equipment Zeke stumbles upon prior to the beginning of the aforementioned theoretical game. There's a lot more to it, but that's a quick overview.

Anyway, yeah, other than that, Zeke isn't necessarily an actual dragon, either, and lives rather well with humans. Rather, he's an anthropomorphic dragon, IE with mostly human skeletal structure and size, but some differing organs, a less developed plantar foot structure, the general appearance of a dragon, and a few other differences here and there, mostly by body chemistry. I'm such a realist even my fantasies have to be realistic... >_<

It's all Greek to me
Wow, never heard of that word before. That could really stun a layman. You know, "What's x to the power of 8?" "You mean a zenzizenzizenzic?" "Never mind."

Drak'rrth is like Athena; he just sprung out of my head... not really. I'm not sure how or when exactly he appeared, but I do recall using a random name generator to create a name, and then, it just hit me. His personality is my personality (with draconic traits, of course, like a predatory instinct), he is basically me. And vice versa. So you can say I never created him, he was always with me. Sorry, I'm one of the "animal-spirit" types.

The rage thing is easy to explain: Adrenaline has a greater effect on him than normal, or so goes my theory. Everything you've mentioned fits it nicely, but I'll have to see if it happens when he's scared, alert, even exercising. I don't have anything like that, though. (Note I refer to Drak'rrth as 'I')

What I do is I have two forms: Anthropomorphic and normal. Normal is your plain vanilla dragon, like the kind you see in my userpic. Anthro is slightly larger than human, bipedal, usable hands, etc. but still rather draconic. I tolerate humans, but they're irritating. Even in real life.

And if you're looking for realistic, by the way, dragons are far from it. Dragons have 6 limbs, two wings and four legs, and most animals have 4. So our kind of dragons are not so likely to occur in real life - naturally. If they offer a position in genetic engineering for making real dragons, I'll take it. Even more so if they're working on a human, 'cause I'm volunteering myself. I'm a nut about this.

Finally, if you want, I'll see about starting that post. Not that I'm optimistic many will reply, but it's worth a shot. Hopefully, there won't be any flaming - either kind.

Re: It's all Greek to me
I have no issue with those of the animal-spirit calling, though I will admit that I do not share that feeling, I am a human and am quite content with being as such. Again, though, I don't have a problem with those who do feel that way, even therians aren't a problem.

And yes, I understand you refer to Drak'rrth as yourself, that's a common meme among furs. Having two forms is interesting, and good to know. It should be noted though, that Zeke didn't originally start with the express purpose to refer to myself, but has over time, since he was just one of many characters in my World: Archipelago game storyline.

Since I bring it up, the fact that my game storyline doesn't actually take place on the planet Earth, I am given a certain degree of liberty over the evolutionary paths for this hypothetical planet. Thus, while dragons having a separate set of winged limbs on Earth would be rather dubious, under different conditions this could conceivably occur. At least that's how I write it.

I'd like to see that post, and if I had a greater feeling of initiative I might post it myself.

Not yourself, and yet yourself
Oh, good. Although I don't think it's really animal-spirit calling, it's more like wanting to become an animal. Okay, so maybe I'm tired of the human race. But that's my opinion. The only ones I don't like are either side's extremists, who go trolling, flaming and such. Let the moderates be friends.

I have to admit, I didn't expect that twist, because many furries "custom-make" their fursonas to fit themselves from the beginning. Having a character, then becoming it, sounds a bit more unusual, but it's quite interesting, since such a character is quite unique and interesting to play, since you're not just imagining yourself. I wonder what the other characters are like, though.

I don't know what kind of conditions could foster what amounts to giant flying lizards, except man-made, but I suppose anything goes.

And yes, I'll start that post ASAP.
