Pandora is from a species of dragons commonly known as Shades, originating from mix breed's of ancient dragons the species they are believed to be exceedingly rare hybrids who only happen once in a while. However, within certain locations like The Hidden Grotto, they can no longer be classified as such in such locations there have been shade parents producing shade offspring for generations. This dragoness is lucky enough to be pure blooded instead of first generation Shade, which means while she lacks the horrid size of most first generation shades, her powers are far more potent than the larger shades. Typically? The smaller the shade, compared to other dragons, the more afraid one should be of them as the more shades breed together the more powerful they become as their abilities mix becoming their own instead of simple things they inherited from other species.
If one listens to the storytellers of Dragon culture around the world? One of the first lessons taught by them is never to attack shades. Anyone not bothering to listen in on stories would assume the reason many other species of dragons do not attack shades is that the species is incredibly powerful, but other dragon species have an entirely different reason to be kind. Since the species hailed from hybrids of many dragons, Shades have a unique knowledge into other kinds of dragons. Instead of using what they knew violently? The species as a whole used what they knew to become the guardians of sick, injured, distressed or just very old dragons. Depending on the land a pureblooded Shade hails from? Their abilities differ to certain extents. As a Hidden Grotto Shade, the abilities Pandora possesses from her species are the following.
☂ Shade Blast ☂
Shades boast quickly rechargeable firepower in the form of multiple small blasts, these attacks deal the shades typical multi-hit damage per strike, D-rank 30hp, C-rank 45hp, B-rank 60hp, A-rank 75hp, and lastly at S-rank 90hp per impact, in an area and speed matching their rank. While seemingly not very powerful on a per strike basis, shades can fire many of these blasts before growing exhausted and they can quickly stack up to become problematic for enemies. Not affected by magic/strength buffs, nor magic/strength resistance since it's not a magical strike nor is it her physically hitting something, it's just an ability of her species.
☂ Dragons Hoard ☂
Shades have a merit for collecting things like most dragon species, giving these creatures the power to draw 100% greater jewel rewards from the jobs they complete. Due to this they also seem to always conveniently have the right tool for the job, something that someone needs, or just generally anything that's gone missing recently. No one is quite sure if this is because of a natural knack for finding and hoarding things, or because they may be secret kleptomaniacs.
☂ Dragon Skin ☂
Shades are notoriously hard to find even when they leave their hidden lands, most assume this is because they fly during the night using their black scales as a disguise. However, that is only half the truth, a shades scales are indeed it's best defense against attack, but not because they're black. These dragons can change the color of their scales at will, even having multiple colors on one scale, allowing them to blend into their surroundings, even in flight. This ability is obviously prone to its own weaknesses, for example, if someone knocks some scales out then the scales cannot do their job. Shades also require a few seconds to change their colors so if they are constantly being struck by attacks, it can be nearly impossible for them to go invisible. Due to the thickness of her scales, she also has 25% more health, 30% when she reaches A rank.
☂ Dragon Senses ☂
Shades have their own set of specialized senses that differ from humans like any species, the first of which being specialized echolocation originally used to navigate the often difficult paths into their native lands. These dragons are experts in sensory abilities, having most any sensory ability one can think of. However, it takes shades time to flicker from one to another and they can only typically have two sensory abilities from this active at a time in pvp, though they can use them much more freely in normal story. Due to the blessing of their senses, they can be much more conservative with their magic, thus shades spend 40% less on their spells than normal creatures, increasing to 50% less at B rank.
☂ Flight Effects ☂
Shades have special magical properties embedded within the veins of their wings, ones that change dependant on how the shade moves their wings and their body temperature. The effect of charged magic in their wings? Results in a snow like substance falling from their wings, this material comes in a variety of colors and can have many different elements but only one main effect, shades often pick at least one of their magic's by what element they can produce most often. For Pandora no matter the elemental nature (freeze/paralyze/etc) of her flap, it's effect is immobilizing those struck for a single post, this is effective within her ranks burst range and can only be used every other post if the targets are still the same. If the target is different? It can be used again. Shades can produce this effect on varying levels, so she can use this for things like numbing pain, freezing injuries, and other such things, but the main combat application is immobilizing enemies so she can rescue those who need help. Due to these magic channels they have 40% more mana, increasing to 50% at B rank and 60% more at S rank.
☂ Guardian Dragon ☂
Due to their status as guardians of most dragon species in need? Almost every dragon a shade encounters will refuse to fight it without first being attacked by the shade. This refusal is not simply due to their status but also because they emit a very calming presence for other dragons, often making them perceived as no threat, making another dragon more likely to ignore or aid them before it fights them. The only exceptions to this are those who do not know what the shade is, dragons with a deep connection to someone who wishes to fight the shade, player controlled dragons or event dragons, that sort of thing.
☂ Mutt Privileges ☂
Originating from a multitude of hybrids and living lives as guardians, most shades can identify almost every other species of dragon and the most important facts about those dragons from the time they are very young. Shades use this information to aid their duties as guardians, knowing what to feed an injured dragon who can't feed itself, knowing if there is a quick way to subdue a protective injured dragon and many other things. However, should they ever use this knowledge to harm another dragon short of self-defense, it is very likely other shades will hunt them down.
☂ Dragonic Tongue ☂
Almost everyone knows the rumor, that dragons can understand and speak any language they desire. Well, for shades this is half true, they can understand all languages innately without any trouble. However, due to their vocal cords being inherited from so many species they can not speak the language of any humanoids in their dragon forms, to speak a humanoid language they must be in their humanoid form. Oddly, for some reason, their humanoid forms are capable of speaking any language.
