This is an incredibly last-minute (and super rushed) entry for =Taluns
' Nightmaleon adoption contest ([link]
Nightmaleons are an original draconic subspecies created by Taluns that use their color-changing abilities to scare the living daylights out of people by preying on their fears. Which is awesome.
I love all the designs, but I'm trying out for #1 partly because those head-spikes are sassy as heck
I just hope I'm not too late. It's still the 30th here where I live! ;-;
Without further ado:
Signature pattern: Cruorophobia, fear of gore/bloodshed.
Info: Very clever, easily bored and easily amused. Polaris lives in captivity in the city, and her owner hires her out to guard construction sites by day. In theory, she's supposed to guard them at night as well, but the chance to explore is too tempting for someone who figured out her cage lock years ago. Since she travels a lot from site to site, Polaris takes every opportunity she gets to slip out and terrorize the newest batch of locals from the alleys with her vocalizations and color-changing abilities.
She has scarcely ever seen another of her kind, although she'd love to. Realistically, she'd probably only be happy for a few minutes before turning it into some kind of dominance competition.
Common noises she makes are gurgly hisses, as well as a noise best described as very loud, very shrill, and very obnoxious laughter whenever she's happy.
In the past year or so, she's started to show a certain degree of disobedience and a sense of ambition that would be alarming to anyone who bothered to notice it.
Best of luck to everyone in the contest—there are a lot of great entries!

Polaris' character info belongs to me, ~KaurianaUrgh, wish I'd scraped up the time to draw her alternate palette. Alas!
(Also, apologies to everyone waiting on requests. I'm almost done with at least one, but I've learned not to make any promises about when I'll get the time to finish. I made a bit of an exception to this piece because it has a deadline.)
