Overview
Spiral dragons are sinuous, active creatures. They are best known for their erratic flight patterns and energetic nature. This species originates from the Zephyr Steppes where their population continues to thrive.


Physical Attributes
Spiral dragons have the greatest length-to-size ratio of any known species. Their sinuous lengths are incredibly flexible and may twist and contort into any number of impossible shapes, though the most common flight pattern involves a looping Spiral. The small wings on their arms and legs help provide some control to their otherwise chaotic flights. Spirals have large, sensitive eyes that they use to their advantage during their nocturnal hunting.


Social
It is said that Spirals possess only two states of being: unconscious, and full tilt. Spiral dragons have difficulty focusing on one thing at a time, but are excellent at multi-tasking a myriad of simultaneous thoughts and activities that would disorient other dragon species. A Spiral without anything to keep it occupied is capable of literally tying itself into knots in agitation.

Frequent naps between their bursts of enthusiasm are necessary. It is not uncommon for a Spiral dragon to rapidly speak and gesture nonstop for hours, then pass-out midsentence without warning. Their ropey lengths instinctively wrap and coil around any available surface even in slumber. This adaptation has kept many Spirals from meeting an unfortunate end.


Lairs
Spiral dragons prefer to build their lairs inside of trees or mighty fungi. They will burrow deep, winding tunnels within the living wood, often killing the host tree in the process. A Spiral clan is capable of decimating large swathes of ancient forest.

Within mixed-species clans, Spiral dragons will seek out locations inside the foreign lair that they can make their own. Any cracks present in rock, pipes, or places where they can create passages just wide enough to allow their ropelike bodies to squeeze into become thin, spiraling labyrinths. These delicate tunnels will often undermine the strength of lairs carved from stone.


Tactics
Spiral dragons fight their battles with quick-cast spells. They rely on their natural agility to protect them from oncoming attacks. Their erratic, unpredictable flight patterns make them a difficult target to hit. If a Spiral dragon injures any one of its six wings, the fight is over.
