The sky was still pink with the dawn as the companions rode slowly down the dirt path. On either side, as they departed the village, were fields divided by tall blooming hedges. As they made their way along the path, the sound of something heavy being knocked down was followed immediately by a loud grunt on the far side of the hedge.
A voice roared “LOOK OUT!” and from the other side of the hedge something large was charging toward them. The companions kicked their horses into action and they sprinted forward just as the hedge exploded in flame and flying twigs. A red and gold form was followed by a large black bull.
The red form spread it’s golden wings and pushed off the ground just as the bull was about to catch it. The bull stomped and snorted, and turned to face the companions.
“Ride!” Alliaora yelled, and the companions spurred their mounts away.
“I can’t believe how long the bull chased us.” Allianora said, rubbing her horse down “they’re usually much lazier than that.”
“It was really upset about that drake” Rathgar pointed out.
“I don’t think that was a drake, strictly speaking” Feris said, snacking on an apple. “There was fire, and drakes, while dragon-like, don’t breath fire.”
“So what you’re saying is...” Nimble trailed off.
“It was a dragon.” Feris bit into the apple "but a small one"

Flit is an unusual dragon, not truly a red, either in physical appearance or in outlook. He is extremely curious, not particularly viscous, with a tendency to not realize his own native power. He will rarely initiate combat, but will respond with any aggression with his full ability. He prefers to fight from the air where he can use his breath weapon and spells with less opportunity for injury.
In spite of his youth, Flit has managed to acquire several grimoires, and has learned a wide variety of rare and unique spells. Because of this he casts spells as a 6th level magic user.
