As a fan of the How to train your dragon movies i have many times wondered what other possible breeds/cousins of Night Fury may look like.
Ive doodled a few over the years but usually not gotten any further than this.
This one i call Ridge Chaser.
They live in rocky mountain areas where the land meets the sea and their flight is incredible fast and acrobatic.
They love to fly high then dive down to achieve ridiculous speeds, outclassing most.
They are not necessary pack animals but where there is one there is usually a few more. Most commonly a few females and one dominant male.
Usually they sport a dark back and pale underside similar to sharks. On occasions with a black back, giving them a tuxedo cat coloration.
The young are very curious and often find themselves in danger due to it.
Those that survive to adulthood are clever and experienced predators.
Adults often carry scars, injured limbs, torn wings and damaged tail.
They are very persistent creatures though and any flaw they may have acquired they will simply adapt to.
Seeing one without the fins on the tail is a common thing, as they bite them off should one get damaged and create unbalance in flight.
