Born from violent combustions, Embers Dragons' ash-speckled scales make them distinguished from other dragons. Each of the Embers Dragons bear these markings and reign over their respective territories:
Inra of the seas, birthed by hydrothermal vents,
Nali of the flame, hatched in molten rock,
Bacu of earth, born of explosive decaying flora,
Sein of the skies, sprung forth from lightning,
and Cazn of the rift, violently derived from the tearing of space and time...
Due to their nomadic nature, Nali dragons developed a unique, if not risky, method for nesting; rather than establishing a lair for their egg, the pair will carry it clutched firmly in their claws as they fly. Both parents will trade off this duty to allow their mate to hunt or do battle with other dragons, though the smaller of the partners is most frequently seen hauling their mottled egg. This behavioral adaptation is put to the ultimate test when the time comes to trigger the egg's hatching by bathing it in the molten rock that rains down from an erupting volcano.
