A Sunrise Dragon's birth is never a private occasion. As the small creatures claw out of their eggs, blinding rays of light explode through the cracks in the shell, announcing to the world the newborn's arrival.
As Sunrise Dragons mature, the brilliant sun-like orbs on the tip of their tails glow brighter and brighter. This can be dangerous for young Sunrise Dragons. The light shines through most surfaces and can attract unwanted attention from predators and bothersome insects.
Adult Sunrise Dragons developed masterful control over their sun-like tails. Now they're able to adjust the intensity and wavelength of the light to attract or repulse other creatures. Sunrise Dragons enjoy living near the coast so they can direct wayward ships to safety, like lighthouses.
Epic form Sunrise Dragons are capable of producing so much light that they are often deployed to disaster-stricken areas to lengthen the number of daylight hours, which aids rescue crews. To avoid detection, they fly under the horizon and high in the clouds.
