“That sounded so formal! I’m not a formal dragonet. Not at all. Ha! Formal sure isn’t me! If it was, I’m pretty sure dragons would stop giving me such weird looks! Anywho, diddle dee do! Who are you?”

“Swimming in love sounds fun, if it weren’t for the fact it’d kill me!” -Sapphire
Sapphire’s overall build takes after her SkyWing side, save for her prehensile tail, smaller than average wings, a black ruff, RainWing scales, and a small pair of sharp fangs sprouting from her upper jaw. She is a tiny dragonet, much smaller than she should be for someone her age, and more on the chubbier side.
She received colour shifting scales from her RainWing ancestry and tends to keep her scales a light shade of sapphire blue. A few scales along her forearms and tail are unable to change colour and are forced to stay a permanent midnight purple. She has heterochromia iridium, meaning that her eyes are two different colours. The right one is amber and the left is blue, much like her scales. Dark blue freckles are sprinkled around them both. Her underbelly is bright orange, dappled with vermilion red specks. The same can be said for her spines and horns.

“Most dragons immediately put me in the 'insane' and 'avoid' categories moments upon meeting me.” -Sapphire
Sapphire’s a cheerful soul who’s quite talkative (despite no one except a few possess the ability to understand her). She’s extremely cheerful and a positive thinker who loves to lift up anyone’s spirits. She is a bouncy little bundle of joy and is way too curious for her own good. The hybrid gets way excited by the smallest and most insignificant of things, a commonly hated quality among her fellow peers. She has quite the outgoing personality and is carefree about almost everything. She likes to maintain a positive outlook on life and its hardships.
She often daydreams during a conversation and can never stay focused on one thing at a time. When angry, which is an extremely rare occurrence, she can be quite fierce and will spit out retorts that are sure to strike a nerve. She isn’t afraid to stick up for herself, and will often drop her kind persona to adopt a much more aggressive one if she or her family and friends are threatened.
Sapphire is somewhat clingy towards though who manage to form a close bond with her, considering it’s such a rarity for the little hybrid.

“I could kick butt if I wanted to.” -Sapphire
With her unusually small size, Sapphire is able to move with impressive agility and flexibility. and possesses the advantage of fitting in small and uncomfortably cramped spaces. Where she lacks in physical strength, she makes up with her fairly good knowledge of botany and geography.
Despite representing physical SkyWing qualities, all of Sapphire’s tribal abilities come from her RainWing side. She can spit an orange venom, which she isn’t afraid to use if need be, and is able to change almost all her scales depending on her mood or preference.

“I grew up with six annoying but cute brothers and somehow snapping their necks never crossed my mind? Maybe I should be the one giving you advice.” -Sapphire
Landslide and Pepper were first introduced to each other at Jade Mountain Academy, having been the SkyWing and RainWing of the Quartz Winglet. The two became close friends and eventually, they fell in love. After graduating from the school, they made a home together in one of the main cities in the Sky Kingdom, where they had their first clutch of seven eggs.
Out of those seven eggs was one female. Due to the colors of her scales upon hatching, Landslide and Pepper had given her the name Sapphire. She was the fifth to hatch, with Gravel, Nutcracker, Finch, and Stalagmite proceeding her, and Rubble and Pipit succeeding her. From birth the seven siblings were a close bunch.
When Sapphire finally learned to speak, her parents were horrified and perplexed to find that she couldn’t speak proper dragon tongue. Instead of forming actual words, everything she said came out in a jumbled and incomprehensible mess.
Concerned, her parents bought her to the nearest doctor. She was examined and tested for signs of illness, but atlas the doctor was unable to identify what was wrong with her. Nothing like this had ever been introduced to Pyrrhia.
Landslide hired her a tutor to assist her and her brothers in learning the art of sign language months after the visit, as an attempt to find her a way to communicate with her family. Being the ever rambunctious and rebellious dragonets that they were, the siblings hardly paid any attention to the lesson, with Sapphire and Pipit being the only exceptions. They would practice alone in one another’s sleeping cave, with Sapphire being the one to imitate the different signs and Pipit translating them.
Finally, after a year, the wonderful opportunity called school came around. Pepper and Landslide were anxious about sending Sapphire, afraid of what the other students might think of her, and even opted to hire her another tutor so she could learn at home, but she managed to convince them to let her go. Although they were still rather reluctant about doing so.
Her brothers remained by her side for the first few weeks, scaring off anyone that looked the least bit threatening. Sapphire, albeit appreciative of their concern, eventually shooed them away and insisted that she could handle herself just fine and that it would harder to meet new dragonets if she had a herd of vicious, overprotective brothers following her around. All but Pipit heeded her words.
Even with her brothers gone, Sapphire still had a hard time making friends. Anyone that tried to approach her were immediately judgemental of her incapabilities and avoided her. She understood why they did, but it didn’t faze her much. She always had Pitpit to “talk” to.
That just by holding hands like the dango family You will find love
Accentor was Sapphire’s first friend outside her brothers and seemingly one of the only dragons to understand her strange tongue. She greatly enjoys his company and the inside jokes they share, along with his ability to easily comfort her during stressful times.
Despite Maple’s... aggressive behavior, Sapphire is not afraid of her. Sure, the other often throws death threats at her, but she believes that it’s just apart of their somewhat abnormal friendship. She has taken upon herself to attempt to take away the other hybrid's grumpiness and bottled up rage, and replace it with happiness and joy. Sapphire considers her one of her closest friends, and that no matter the circumstance, she can always rely on her to come through.
