Is this a canon dragon or a fan dragon?

BC I love everything about its design & I need one in my life :O

Hi guys! So I've made up a

Hi guys! So I've made up a dragon, something along the lines of a nadder I think. Anyway, I wanted to share and hope to hear what you think!

:D

 

 

 

 

The Malicious Mimikoo

(Mimic-oo)

 

 

The Malicious Mimikoo is a crafty beast. Armed with an excellent sense of smell it tracks its quarry. When the victim is spotted, the Mimikoo will land and conceal herself, mimicking the call of the targeted creature. Once within range the dragon leaps with incredibly powerful hind legs. Its retractable fangs are equipped with poison, so long as it gets one bite in the game is over.

Colors:

Males can be any color. Females are grey and brown

 

Color Pattern:

Comb, beak, and the spines on the back, the tail fan, and the wings are the same color

Throat, Belly and undertail, arms, shoulders and underwing the same color

Face and body same color

Top of the neck, the back, overwing, tail fan, top of the tail same color

 

Mimicking:

The Mimikoo is named for the uncanny way it mimics other creatures… including Vikings. It can imitate any sound almost flawlessly, some say they could not tell the beast from their own mother’s voice. Many an unfortunate Viking have been lost to this creature’s eerie calls.

This unique ability is due to the hollow chamber in the comb above it’s skull that connects to the throat and nostrils. It throws Vikings off because the Mimikoo can mimic without opening it’s mouth

 

Fire:

Has no fire. Now it is fireproof, mind you, just as much as the next dragon, but no fire. Instead it eats sand and makes glass from it, similar to the Groncle’s ability but strictly a glass maker. This can be blasted, but the blast is weak and it can only carry three shots at best. No the mimikoo has a much more creative purpose for it’s glass fire. I’ll get to that in a minute

 

Flight and ground Movement:

Not a strong flyer, best described as fluttering. The wings do all the work, the tale is best used as a rudder or for gliding. It takes to the sky with a powerful, jumpstart leap. Very difficult to ride in the air but even worse on the ground since all the Mimikoo does is hop!  

 

 

Courtship:

The male Mimikoo builds a nest of stained glass to impress a female. This is an incredible feat; as there are many factors involved. First he must find a cave with more than one exit, and not too far from a sandy beach. When he’s done this he begins building, flying back and forth from the nearby beach, scooping up sand and laying down glass. He will often add things that catch his eye, and even eat certain plants to give color to his glass. Once the glass is laid, he sculpts with his comb. It’s razor sharp edge is perfect for making exact cuts.

The glass wall must be three feet thick, give or take a few inches. It has to hold even if a Monstrous Nightmare flies into it. Ventilation is a major factor. Having no fire means Mimikoos are more sensitive to the cold weather so the greenhouse effect that glass has is very useful in the winter, but if the cave is not properly ventilated for the summer they could d.ie from heatstroke.

When he is done, he goes outside and begins to dance. He fans his tale and wings, displaying his colors from the ground, singing loudly. A female takes notice and lands to watch. He hops over and dances circles around her, cooing, buxing, and trilling. Then he backs away and bows, inviting her to dance. She will snap at him if she is not impressed. But she will imitate his dance if she accepts.

This goes on for a few days.

When he is ready, he brings the female over to the waiting nest. She inspects for strength and ventilation. Usually if he has done well with these she accepts, but there have been female Mimikoos how have turned away suitors because they lacked artistic style! So the beauty of the nest is in question as well.

If she accepts, they begin their own pride. Other females searching for shelter are welcome to join the new pride, and their mates, if well mannered, are accepted as well

 

 

 

Defense:

(The blast from a Mimikoo’s glass fire is enough to end a Viking, but a mere irritation to other dragons. It does not rely heavily on it.)

Plain is not always bad. The male Mimikoo is bright and beautiful, but his lifespan is much shorter than a female’s due in great part to her camoflauge. Predatory dragons are just not going to spot her as well as they do him. If a Mimikoo is in hiding, and something it perceives as a threat draws near, it will mimic a larger creature to frighten the would-be assailant.

Not being a fast dragon in the air, their best defense is to seek shelter, not flee. If they can make it, the thick glass walls they build at the entrances of their nests lend refuge and bewilder other dragons. They don’t see them and run right into them. This makes the hunter the hunted, because once in a daze on the ground the Mimikoo will attack any Dragon or Viking with it’s poisonous fangs.

One would think their razor sharp combs would be a good defense but this dragon prefers to kick. If they damage their combs there’s no going back, and they need them for building and fixing up the nests. Also the combs are so sharp they often get stuck in armor, leaving the Mimikoo open to attack

 

 

 

 

 

Challanging:

 

Male Mimikoos fight over females and territory. There’s always an alpha and always a challenger. Alphas are called MimiKings

They battle two ways; vocally and physically. preliminary fights consist of “yelling”. Whoever yells the loudest is the victor. These can be very entertaining as they can literally yell anything. So if a Viking were to shout something like “My voice is higher than YOUR voice!” To battling C.ocks they would compete by repeating it louder and louder until it was static.

The next step up is physical combat in the form of

-boxing.

Yes boxing. They stand up on their tales and punch and scratch and kick. Mimikoos have the most powerful, pound-for-pound hind legs of any dragon and they are not afraid to use them on each other. Jaw strength is not their strongsuit, and since Mimikoos are immune to their own poisons there’s little point in biting, especially since they risk getting their razor sharp combs caught in the armor of the other dragon.

 

 

 

Hunting:

Females do the hunting. They mostly hunt alone, but if there’s big enough game they work together. Flying above the islands she follows her nose to herds of deer or yaks or anything with ears basically. Once the quarry is spotted, she lands a distance away and sneaks closer.

Finding a place  to hide or camoflauge within hearing range, she begin to call. Bleating like the quarry’s young, or bugling a challenging rival, depending on what the victim will respond to. When the gullible beast gets within 50 ft range she strikes, power of her hind legs launching her at 80mph. She bites once with her fangs. The animal flees in terror but she does not pursue with haste. Her work has been done, the poison in her fangs moves swiftly and painlessly, and the infected animal d.ies within minutes.

 

Poison:

Unlike most creatures the Mimikoo does not make it’s own poison. They create it by ingesting Hemlock, Henbane and Poppies. Overtime these produce the poisons in its fangs. They are the only creature immune to hemlock.

Vikings discovered after much trial and error that if Mimikoo poison was taken in a far smaller dosage it would put one to sleep. It was a very, very hazardous anesthetic, though, and honestly a terrible idea.

 

Telling gender:

Color, as we have already covered, is the easiest way to tell gender. Dull browns and greys for females, vibrant prisms for males. Females have pouches, males haves spines on their backs.

Male Mimikoos hatch with three protruding spines along the ridge of their back. As the dragon ages it grows new spines. Three years to every spine. A rare Titaned male’s spines go all the way from the neck to the tail, 15 spines in all.

The only way to tell a females (not exclusive males too) age is to look at her teeth… but nobody wants to get that close

A titan is easy to spot; much bigger with all spines (for males) and armor grown out. Fangs are longer, too, as are wing claws.

 

Adversaries:

The Cunning Kite is the Mimikoos’ primary adversary. These dragons have sensitive hearing and know the difference of a Mimikoo and the animal it is mimicking. The Kite uses it’s incredible diving speed to attack a mimikoo in the air. It’s all over on impact.

 

Hatchlings:

Have no poison.

They are very curious and pretty friendly if not a little feisty. Want to please. Easy to train at this stage

Can not fly until a year old. If the mother feels they are threatened, she’ll grab her young, stuff them in her pouch and fly away.

 

 

Eggs:

 

Okay out of ideas. Got any?

My advice - Hope it helps.

My advice on the egg design: Don't design it how they design a lot of dragon eggs in RoB,like don't make it with pointy things or bulges on it. 

So not like these:

I feel sorry for any dragon who has to lay these.

 

As for any patterns or the shape of it... I don't have any ideas either XD.

                                                          Hi, I'm Jade queen.

My dragons:

Screech the Deadly Nadder (adult) female.

Snapper the Whispering Death (adult) male.

Tremble the Whispering Death (adult) male.

Terrorfrill the Screaming Death (adult) male.

Razorrin the Razorwhip (adult) female.

Laluby the Death Song (adult) female.

Bolder the Gronckle (adult) male.

Zig and Zag the Zippleback (adult) male(males?)

Iceberg the Groncicle (adult) male.

Sheld the Armorwing (adult) male.

(Originally I was trying to name him "Shield" but I forgot the "i")

Tideline the Sand Wraith (adult) male.

Scorching Fang the Singetail (adult) male.

Rocky the Eruptadon (adult) male

Shimmer Sting the Speed Stinger (adult) female

Skrilla the Skrill (adult) female

 

The Doubles: One day I logged on to SOD and most of my dragons had glitched out of their stables. I then got three of the notices that you get when you earn/train a dragon in one of the expansions,they said I had gotten a Groncicle,a Deathsong and an Armorwing. I thought they were my original Deathsong,Groncicle and Armorwing that I had been re-given and so I named them the same names as my originals. I was upset because the original three dragons had disappeared and the new ones were not the same. My original Armorwing,Deathsong and Groncicle were still displayed in my dragon list,but I could not make them active. I eventually figured out how to make the original three active through stable quests and then I placed each of them in a stable and everything was back to normal... except for the three extra dragons that I had gotten. 

Doubles: 

Iceberg the Groncicle adult male 

Sheld the Armorwing adult male 

Laluby the Deathsong adult female

                                                                         

Eggs: 2 Gronckle, 1 Rumble Horn, 1 Groncicle, 1 Deadly Nadder, 1 Shockjaw, 1 Hobblegrunt/Threadtail, 1 Smothering Smokebreath, 1 Scaldron, 1 Mudraker. 

 

Clan:

My clan is called The Screech Dragons. I named it after my first dragon Screech the Deadly Nadder. 

                                                            We care for dragons 

                                                            We respect dragons

                                                              We love dragons!

                                                      We are THE SCREECH DRAGONS 

 

In-game:

My account is called Jade queen. 

Appearance: Green hair, green eyes. Wears a snow wraith hood,a light brown shirt and a brown fur skirt,tall white boots as well as thermal wrist warmers and thermal shoulder pads. Wears a feline grace mask (I was really going for a cat look). Occasionally I change her outfit around,but this is what she wears most of the time. 

Friend code: Pm me for it

I hardly ever really play the game anymore,mostly I just hang out on the forum.

I was wondering about making them different colors depending on the baby dragon, but see-through, like tainted glass

You know what I think would be pretty neat? Usually, animals who have brightly coloured males and neutral coloured females are all about blending in with their surroundings. Perhaps the eggs could be smaller than normal {to make for easy pouch carrying in emergency situations}, but also "natural" coloured. Perhaps a dark grey base fading to a mossy looking green top. Similar to a small pebble or rock. That way predators wouldn't be able to see them as easily ^_^

I like that! I'm going to use it. The part about them being so little would explain why it takes so long for them to learn to fly, too. You have great ideas XD

It's super late at night so I won't say much except these look fantastic and I would love to adopt one if you do open them for that! I like how they fly like a sparrow or other short-winged bird.

Oh my great goodness gracious, I absolutely love them to death :D this is a perfect example of a really good fanmade species that I wouldn't mind seeing at the school ;;;)))) hint hint hint Brynjolf?

You put so much thought into everything about the Mimikoo (that's a really cool name btw)

If you ever made adoptables of either the Mimikoo or the Kyte, I'd be sure to get one. Glass-making mockingbird rooster dragon? Yes please!

My Viking's Name is Chaoze.

Chaoze has mid-back length obnoxious brown hair usually in some sort of braid, dark brown eyes, and typically wears white war paint on her face.

Some Art And Stuff:

 

^Opal, drawn by the talented Arrowalker. Thank you!^

 

“A rustle of trees

A flock of birds rising

The beat of large wings

A dragon is flying

On her back is a rider

Brown hair streaming out behind her

Golden light seeps through the trees

The sky in the west is burning

The strength of the day is wavering

Taking to the sky

Upwards they fly

They burst through the clouds

Gone are all sounds

Their speed slowing

The feel of floating

Amber light on silver-blue wings

Here gliding, the heart seems to sing

The fiery sky pulses it's last light

The sky now a blanket of stillness

Darkness

Silence

Peace

A swirl of shining beads scattered in the sky

Dragon and rider to home now fly

Depending from the starry night

Upon a towns’ sleepy blinking light

Dragon and rider now asleep in their beds

And so it seems our story ends

But this is wrong

For their hearts for adventure still long

For dragon and rider adventure has only begun

Dragon and rider together

As one”

^A lovely poem by my mysterious 2018 Secret Santa. You know who you are - thank you!^
