With featherlight bodies and long, flat wings, Kite Dragons spend much of their life soaring through the air, wafting in the wind. However when Kite Dragons are young they have trouble navigating through strong gusts. Their parents need to keep a watchful eye on them or they'll find themselves "migrating" to a new Dragon isle downwind.
Kite Dragons are so sensitive to the wind that they hardly need to move their wings to remain airborne. However, this also means that they need to stay close to the ground - and preferably shielded from the wind - during particularly stormy days.
As Kite Dragons mature, they sprout small secondary wings which allow them to fly with pinpoint control during any weather conditions. Adult Kite Dragons need only fear flying while carrying keys during a lightning storm.
Epic Kite dragons are masters of multidirectional flight. Often, they will entertain other dragons with their seemingly physics-defying aeronautical prowess.
By breeding two dragons that collectively contribute Pink and Yellow to the type pool. If a parent has the appropriate minor types, missing requirements may also be added to the pool, even if neither parent has the originally required types. Minor types that have been split from other minor types can also contribute their component types to the type pool.
DISCLAIMER: When attempting to breed the Kite Dragon, you may get other offspring instead. Check the Breeding Calculator to view all of the possible results of combining a particular pair of parents.
The Kite Dragon has special behavior when it is used as a breeding parent. Unlike dragons with only basic types, it will obey the following rules:
When the Pink type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Red and White) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Pink is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Pink type can split into Red and White. However, if it is split, then Pink is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Pink in a pool will either add the Pink type if it does not split or the Red and White types if it does split. There is one exception to this rule, and that is when both parents possess the Pink type. In this case, Pink can contribute both itself and its split colors at the same time.
Although the Pink type can split into Red and White for breeding purposes, it still only counts as one type. This is important when considering the number of types for type-amount-dependent dragons such as the Diamond Dragon. Breeding a Forest Dragon with a Kite Dragon only counts as three types: Green, Pink, and Yellow.
The Kite Dragon's design is based upon the Fairy Dragon's, although there are differences between the two.
The action of "carrying keys in a lighning storm", referenced in the description of the adult Kite Dragon, refers to the experiment made by the famous scientist Benjamin Franklin in the 18th century that proved the conductivity of lightning and was fundamental to the invention of the lightning rod.
