Summary of Pern dragons

Gold
Summary

Info

Note: Gold dragons are not referred to as 'queens' in our canon.


Impression

Women; gold dragons were heavily modified by Kitti Ping, and as such, only look for lifemates in the form of cis-women. They are not, however, impacted by the sexual orientation of their rider.


Population

<1% of the population, historically.
Due to the nature of the Site's plot, gold dragons have been Hatching at a higher rate than in history, meaning their average percentage of population is currently higher. There should, on average, be between 3 and 5 gold dragons per Weyr by the time Thread falls.


Sex, Gender & Sexuality

Always heterosexual female


Size

Length: 30 - 40 feet
Height: 15 - 20 feet
Wingspan: 45 - 60 feet


Maturity

Growth: 12 months
Sexual: 10+ months

While most golds won't reach sexual maturity before twelve months, there have been golds in the past that Flew as young as six months of age. This is very rare, and unlikely to happen again in our game. Most golds reach sexual maturity before they are two years old, but some have been known to not take their Maiden Flight until they are three or four years old.


Reproduction

First Flight takes place after sexual maturity is reached, usually between 12 and 24 months of age, though it may be later for some golds. Earlier is very rare, but has been known to happen in the past.

The average gold will Fly once every 12 months leading up to, and during, Threadfall. It is not uncommon, however, for a gold dragon to have a Flight Routine of once every 2, 3 or 4 years. Very rarely, a gold will fly more frequently; historically on site, this has been as regularly as every 6 months.

Golds tend to clutch anywhere from 5 to 45 eggs, depending on the gold in question. Usually a gold will clutch roughly the same sized clutches throughout her lifetime; most golds tend to range between 25 and 35 eggs. A gold may clutch as many as two gold eggs in one nest, or as few as zero.


Threadfall

Golds and their riders do not fight Threadfall. Instead, they are responsible for organising and maintaining control at the Weyr base with the Healers and their dragons, attending to those who return injured.


Cliches and Stereotypes

Goldriders are always heterosexual
Golds only bond to women suitable to leadership
Golds are haughty



Bronze

Info


Impression

Men; bronze dragons were heavily modified by Kitti Ping, and as such, only look for lifemates in the form of cis-men. They are not, however, impacted by the sexual orientation of their rider.


Population

5% of the population, historically


Sex, Gender & Sexuality

Always heterosexual male


Size

Length: 30 - 40 feet
Height: 15 - 20 feet
Wingspan: 45 - 60 feet


Maturity

Growth: 12 months
Sexual: 10+ months


Reproduction

Most commonly sire clutches on Golds.


Threadfall

Generally leadership roles, such as Wingleader and Wingsecond.


Cliches and Stereotypes

Bronzeriders are always heterosexual
Bronzeriders are always Leadership Material
Bronze dragons are serious and studious
Bronze dragons are arrogant



Brown

Info


Impression

Men; brown dragons were modified by Kitti Ping (though not as heavily as the gold and bronze), and as such, only look for lifemates in the form of cis-men. They are not, however, impacted by the sexual orientation of their rider.


Population

15% of the population, historically


Sex, Gender & Sexuality

Almost always heterosexual, always male. While very rare in brown dragons, non-heterosexual dragons may emotionally bond ('mate') with another dragon, but they will not participate in same-sex Flights - eg, a mated pair of greens will not Chase one another.


Size

Length: 25 - 35 feet
Height: 12.5 - 17.5 feet
Wingspan: 37.5 - 52.5 feet


Maturity

Growth: 12 months
Sexual: 10+ months


Reproduction

Occasionally sire clutches on gold dragons; usually Fly greens, however, which are incapable of producing clutches.


Threadfall

Generally wingriders, occasionally Wingseconds. Never Wingleaders. No longer allowed to hold positions of power (see site history)


Cliches and Stereotypes

Brownriders are arseholes
Brownriders are power-hungry
Brown dragons are not intelligent
Brown dragons are hard workers



Blue

Info


Impression

Primarily men, but not unknown to impress to women. Don't have any care for sexual or gender identities.


Population

30% of the population, historically


Sex, Gender & Sexuality

Majority heterosexual male; always physically male. Non-heterosexual dragons may emotionally bond ('mate') with another dragon, but they will not participate in same-sex Flights - eg, a mated pair of greens will not Chase one another.


Size

Length: 20 - 30 feet
Height: 10 - 15 feet
Wingspan: 30 - 45 feet


Maturity

Growth: 12 months
Sexual: 8+ months


Reproduction

Capable of siring clutches on gold dragons, they are, however, not allowed to and are forcibly grounded during gold flights. They usually pair with green dragons, both sexually and emotionally.


Threadfall

Info.


Cliches and Stereotypes

All blue dragons are Searchers
All blueriders are horny



Green

Info


Impression

Primarily men, but impression to women is increasing. Don't have any care for sexual or gender identities.


Population

50% of the population, historically


Sex, Gender & Sexuality

Majority heterosexual female; always physically female. Non-heterosexual dragons may emotionally bond ('mate') with another dragon, but they will not participate in same-sex Flights - eg, a mated pair of greens will not Chase one another.


Size

Length: 20 - 30 feet
Height: 10 - 15 feet
Wingspan: 30 - 45 feet


Maturity

Growth: 12 months
Sexual: 8+ months


Reproduction

Incapable of producing clutches, as they are genetically infertile. This was discovered by the original survivors at Katila, who tried to get the greens from Nirinath's first clutch to produce clutches, as they didn't get fed Firestone, which was until then, thought to be the reason for infertility.


Threadfall

Fly Threadfall in half-shifts, as they don't have the stamina for a full Fall. They are quick and agile, diving around to mop up the Thread that has fallen through the other dragons' flames, and catching it before it hits the ground.


Cliches and Stereotypes

Green dragons are stupid
Greenriders are sluts
All greenrider men are gay
Green dragons are 'useless'
There is no honour to Impressing a green
