Fazoola, my element is Life.
For those who don't know what I look like: I am a large dragon, with scales that shimmer. In the day, their colors are those that are considered 'hot': reds, oranges and yellows. At night, my scales cool to a mustard yellow mixed with gray. My wings are bat-like, which is one of the best qualities I like about myself. I have long admired the bat for being the only mammal in existence that is able to fly. I have a slim build, which conceals my considerable musculature. I pity any who dare decide that I am weak because I do not 'look the part'. Only one who is foolish would look at the physical being and only look at what they can see and understand instead of what they cannot. My tail is long and thick, tapering to a point. Like a cat (another animal I happen to admire, for their night sight, incredible hunting capabilities and their ferocity, concealed in a soft body), I have retractable claws on all four of my paws. The second quality that I love about myself is that my creations and indeed, the other Elementals, have told me that I have a regal bearing and I seem to permeate the air with my calm demeanor. Others tend to relax, confide and befriend me, no matter who they happen to be.
For those who do not know what I am like: I am a gentle dragon, a friend to all life, and it goes almost without saying that I am one of the easiest dragons to get along with. I do my best to put forth this attitude in all of my creations but I understand that the very act of living changes one's personality, no matter what is naturally instilled in them.
A note on conflict: Naturally, I do not enjoy anything that causes unease. It makes me feel sick at heart to think that we cannot all get along. Since I have existed since time began, I understand that not every personality will easily accept that of another, especially if they are so different in their makeup. At the beginning, it used to distress me greatly but I have slowly gotten used to it and now only feel the slightest twinge when I hear raised voices or know of the spilling of life's red force.
I am a hunter but I do not let my prey suffer. I feel it is the same way with my enemies. I will do my best to talk them out of whatever their problem may be and many a time I have succeeded. If they prove that they are especially stubborn, I have learned that I must put aside my great patience and warn them before I regretfully bring out my claws and show them that, gentle as I am, I will not be trifled with. I have strong beliefs and I won't begrudge someone else's opinion but I don't like pushy dragons. If I am pushed…I will push back.
How exactly do I fight, when I have to? I use my teeth, my claws and my fire. I am skilled at doing enough damage to get my point across and I rarely take a life. I prefer to give life, not the opposite of that. My wings and tail are also quite handy when I need extra power and many a creature has felt the force behind those appendages. I am a natural strategist, always thinking about the best way to do this or to do that. In turn, I choose especially intelligent elves or humans for my Riders. I like the companionship and enjoy having long discussions with them about almost any topic. My mind, I know, is the greatest weapon that I have. My weakness is that I do not have speed.
As an Elemental, I have powers that far surpass any other. I can give life to anything that I choose, unless it has already passed. I can weaken the life force of others but I can't take it away completely. I can freeze a creation's powers so that they can't be used in my presence. I can do any of these things at will and I am not weakened in any way.
My past, my present and my future: I do not have a partner, but I wouldn't mind one. I am not big on making creations, preferring to watch and participate in life. I make enough creations to have company when I need it but they are not as plentiful as other Elements. My current Rider is Jester, a former comedian who's real name is Aatos Arvopoika, Finnish for thought. My territory is thriving, as it always has and of course, I love life! I look forward to the future, for life shall always exist, no matter in what form. Riders may come and go but I will still exist, giving meaning to my new Riders' lives as well as those of my creations and perhaps, one day, my children. For now, things are well and I do my best to think in only the most positive of lights.
