- Denizen of the Enchanters of Sye world.
- A dragonette is a miniature five-pound dragon; typically 4’ long with wing span almost 5’ wide. Domesticated dragonettes are the pampered pets of powerful magicians and Enchanters. Along with a basic omnivore diet consisting of fish and fresh vegetables, dragonettes must also consume magical essence daily to stay alive. Because they eat magic, the owner must acquire and register the dracon through the local Magic Guild. These sentient magical creatures are the colors of the four magic types: Earthe, Mer, Aer, and Fyre.
