Steed Dragons (which come in a wide variety of colors running the entire rainbow) are native to only one planet in the five galaxies Tamoril 4, and are thus highly sought after by collectors of rare species. However, they are unlike most dragons in many respects, for instance: All Steed Dragons breath fire regardless of color, they also have a need to bond with a rider. This last part is very important because without a rider a Steed Dragon will turn rogue attacking anyone unfortunate enough to cross it's path, though no rogues have been reported for hundreds of years. Draco-zoologists have speculated that it is most like magical tampering with the native species and selective breeding which has made these unique creatures they way they. When bonded to a rider (of which the dragon could have several in one lifetime but not more than one at any given time) the dragon confers many magical powers and abilities, all available to the rider even when separated by hundreds of miles. Those abilities are the same no matter the rider and are as follows: Draconic senses (sight, Hearing, Smell) Various spells (nature related), Sensory bond (the ability to see through the eyes of the dragon and hear what it hears), Dragon Heart (the ability to know the general well being of the dragon).
Furthermore the dragon itself possesses a number of abilities beyond those of other dragons which are as follows: Healing flames (a form of fiery breath that heals rather than harms), Rider bond (A form of telepathy which allows the Dragon to communicate with the rider and the rider alone although it works well with other Telepaths), Rapid growth (within 30 days of hatching Steed Dragons reach full maturity), Soul Link ( when bonded with a rider the Steed Dragon will share the rider's faith, beliefs outlook, and behavior making them the perfect companion the more good or evil the rider the more good or evil the dragon. The bond has the negative side effect of being very harmful to the dragon should the rider be killed violently, in which case the shock could overwhelm the dragon and cause it to dies as well. the last and probably most sought after ability is called Dragonsfire this ability extends the life of the rider by hundreds of years and some speculate it may extend it by thousands should a rider avoid any misfortune. This last ability is why the eggs of these creatures are so desperately sought after and is also the reason their planet remains locked in turmoil and has yet to evolve beyond it's medieval era. The planet they reside on however is thankfully under the close watchful eye of the IGFW and no dragons are permitted to be removed from the planet without documentation from the local rulers (which by the way is the only way to acquire one). Steed dragons are not born, they are bread in captivity and no free dragons of any kind roam the continents. It is considered an immense honor to be granted a Steed Dragon and few outsiders have ever had the privilege or left the planet after receiving one, by their own choice.
