In our realm, Sapphire Dragons can only be crafted from life-bearing Gemstones. But in the Dragon Realm, they are hatched only in the deepest, darkest crevasses of the ocean. In normal conditions, the Sapphire egg is nigh unbreakable, and the baby dragon can only hatch amidst the immense pressure of the ocean floor. Once the dragon hatches, it makes the long journey to the surface of the water and finds its way back to its family.
Sapphire Dragons are most conmfortable either flying in the open sky or swimming in large bodies of water. This means Sapphire Dragon mothers must be extra watchful over their offspring, as they tend to blend into these surroundings seamlessly.
While Sapphire Dragons are content to eat fruit in the human realm, they enjoy eating clams, mussels, and other mollusks when they venture underwater. Their sharp, toughened snout is used to break through the hard exterior of the sea-dwellers to feast on the contents inside.
Epic Sapphire Dragons have no natural predators, as they are literally inedible. Their bodies are immensely robust, and covered in numerous pointed appendages. In fact, Sapphire Dragons are so dangerous to other dragons and animals, they can only make contact with other Epic Sapphire Dragons.
