Minor Dragons are the smallest species of Dragons in Amara, growing to be the size of a young kitten. When they hatch, their scales start off with a grayish hue that soon brightens. After birth, they can immediately walk and fly shortly after, and eat a day proceeding hatching. Minor Dragons are fairly intelligent creatures and have a simple system of chattering noises which they use to communicate with each other.
Minor Dragons have different talents depending on their color, but every Minor Dragon has the ability to mindspeak others, but only DragonKeepers and those who hatched them can hear clearly. These Dragons can spit an acidic saliva that's color corresponds their scale hue, which are most effectivehen spat into an enemy's eyes, though they are capable of leaving burns on skin. Like all Dragons, Minors hatch knowing their own name.
A Minor Dragon tends to bond to the person that quickened (incubated) his/her egg and will be able to communicate to that person mentally. They will hatch thirty-three days after they have been quickened.
When a large number of minor dragons are bonded to one person, they will naturally divide themselves into watches that can function as sentries, scouts, and fighters. Done without a DragonKeeper's instigation, eleven to fifteen minor dragons would develop camaraderie and a leader would emerge. A social structure would develop. Kale Allerion found it fascinating and had many watches due to being bonded to hundreds of minor dragons. Atross was the leader of one of her watches.
