Appearance[ | ]

Shadow Scales are known for their thin and aerodynamic form, bearing notable resemblance to the Night or Light Fury from HTTYD. Most Shadow Scales are colored like the night sky, ranging from blue to black from the default to random skins.

Their heads are relatively flat on the tops and bottoms, with small pointy spike-like protrusions on the sides and a row of small bumps in the center of the head. Shadow Scales notably lack horns of any kind. Their body is similar, having four rows of spines lining the backside all the way to the tail. Their tail has fins on both the very end and along the sides to provide better control in flight and quieter flight, adding to them being ambush predators.

Gameplay[ | ]

The Shadow Scale is able to fire plasma bolts, dealing high damage to distant targets but use.

oundings. This is known as the Shadow Cloak. When activated, it has a shimmery effect. Crouching and standing still for a time will render the dragon invisible.

Due to being nocturnal animals, the Shadow Scale has the best night vision out of all dragons.

Shadow Scales can lay a maximum of 3 eggs per nest.
