Lost Terravyrns;; There exists a modernized subspecies of terravyrn with more dragonlike traits; said to have left Terra long ago, interbreeding with western dragon populations in Felnova and Millirand, they are a rare strain that can be found in amid other dragon species.
Lost terravyrns are a limited store species; please do not make one unless bought. Thank you!

Appearance;; The terravyrn is a rare and elusive species of dragon. With long necks and tails, they are delicately built and they have manes reminiscent of a horse's. The forelock falls around a singular horn to cover eyeless sockets; notwithstanding their ability to see is unaffected. From this horn comes the basis of their magical abilities, of which will be covered in the next two sections. Short-bodied and long-legged, each foot has three fingers tipped with points, though no claw. Their tails can be as long as their bodies and are often tipped with a lionlike tuft of fur at the end, varied by individual. Their scales may range in color from a soft pink to deep purple, and any shade of blue, as well as a mixture of each. White and black can be born through crossbreeding, and purebred terravyrns in these colors have supposedly died out long ago. They are also quite fond of decorating themselves with a multitude of jewelry, such as gold chains, beads, even small trinkets such as leaves or stones.
Tactics;; This species is very like the western dragon of Felnova and Millirand, possessing the same level of intelligence. They also appear to be somewhat aloof and often are found alone, away from the company of other dragons and their riders. Some terravyrns are bitter about what befell their homeland of Terra, and can be quite querulous when the subject is breached. Older terravyrns are very wise, as they age far slower than a dragon, and have a much slower metabolism. They may live for ten thousand years and still be in their prime.
Abilities;; A terravyrn has the uncommon ability to absorb elemental magic without taking damage; however, non-elemental magicks, physical attacks and those based around reiatsu can have devastation effect. They cannot possess a normal dragon's abilities, as they have a power of their own dubbed 'flare' magic, a reiatsu-like combination of energy and non-elemental force unique to the terravyrn itself. A terravyrn may also summon the spirits of terravyrns past, though the ability is rare.
