Dragor: A large Fire Breather of the Draconian Faction. Dragor was due to be sacrificed because he did not light the Sacred Fire. As the son of the chief of the Draconian Faction, he was a disappointment. However, it was Dragon law that any dragon who did not develop oral defenses by a certain age was deemed sickly or cursed. Therefore, he was to be thrown into the Sacred Fire to be recycled.

Los: A small Chameleon Dragon Jarvok and Asa rescued from being sacrificed by his own clan. The dragon is an expert in reconnaissance for Jarvok. He is very loyal to Jarvok. Los begins life as an amber and tan colored dragon with silver tones, much like the coloring of a Yorkshire Terrier. His tongue is too big for his mouth as he ages it tends to stick out all the time. He has dark brown soulful eyes, he is very affable, and is deeply loyal to Jarvok. His loyalty is equal to Dragor’s.

Where do dragons come from?

Dragon design concept

by Danielle M. Orsino 

The inspiration for my dragons came from a most unusual place. The little Yorkshire Terrier with the big ears sitting next to the Cheweenie in the picture. His name is Carlos, but once you read Birth of the Fae: Locked out of Heaven, who will come to know him as “Los”; the chameleon dragon. His sister Penelope you will meet later on in the series as "Lady Penelope" a member of the Aubane Faction of Fae. You may be asking yourself how did a Yorkie inspire a dragon? Well the answer is not that simple, Carlos is not your typical pup. He is a puppy-mill dog, born with some major medical issues, some I kept in his dragon persona. However, Carlos' heart and determination make him a dragon. I took those qualities and built the Draconian society around it. I wanted the dragons to be a fully realized and functioning society, not pets or weapons of destruction. I felt dragons deserved more than to be magical creatures that are always feared or looking to be controlled. Now the physical traits of my fire, acid and ice breathing dragons those were a bit more difficult. I searched out my Veterinarian Dr. Gil Stanzione of Dakota Vet for some guidance. I built my dragons from the inside out, the digestive system to be exact. How? Well bacteria played a big part but I can't give away all my secrets or else you won't read the book! Now I know your next question is how do they fly? For that I enlisted the assistance of engineering students at Westchester Community college and with the help of Professor Ioannou (and my own little theory regarding thermals and the albatross) I have dragons who are not the size of 747s that can fly or at least glide. So jump on the back of one of these dragons and take a ride into the Veil!
