Dragon Riders [IC]
Majestic creatures of the sky, land, and sea. They are the rulers of nature's playground. They vary in different shapes, sizes, and personalities. Most Dragons are winged, and thus are able to fly freely in the air, but there are also some rare exceptions.
Some Dragons have small wings, and they don't have the necessary strength to fly in the air for an indefinite amount of time. Instead however, they have adapted to the lands to be more faster in land and grounds alike. Some are even rumored to be faster than Saber-tooth Tigers.
Humans that have learned the ways of the Dragons and have befriended them. They use Dragons to help their villages thrive and sustain. They use the Dragons to help catch food, do labor work, and all around general work.
For generations, Dragons and Humans have worked with one another, living in peace and in nearly endless harmony.
In the village of Lyria, appropriately nicknamed Dragona,
This is where the Dragons mainly stay, eagerly awaiting their riders for their daily activities. Also in Lyria is the center of farming, occasionally each dragon will plow the ground and fertilize the crops with their compose.

"Ah, a Dragon Rider's work is never done..." Olaf said as he hiccuped from last night's drinking binge, hopping over to see his Dragon, Arrowhead. Arrowhead was a sleek white dragon, and true to it's name, his head was shaped like an arrow.
"Ah, Arrowhead!" Olaf said eagerly, petting his dragon as he looked around for others to come fly with him.

"Silverclaw! Let's go Girl!" Zane exclaimed as he sat on Silverclaw's harness.
A fairly tall and lean sized Dragon, Silverclaw is Dark Grey coloured, donning some metal armor on her head, back area, tail, and of course, her claws.
Zane snapped on a small rope to Silverclaw's harness, and thus secured him for the flight ahead.
Zane adjusted the reins of Silverclaw, and she took off to the air, at a blinding speed, passing Olaf as they both soared through the air. "MORNIN' OLAFFFFffff" Zane said as he slowly disappeared from sight, then reappearing again, flying around Lyria.

Olaf jumped and snorted as he heard Zane yell his name out. "Why you little." He said shaking his fist at his as his dragon sped off. "Alright then, let's race." Olaf would continue as he moved to climb up on Arrowhead. Taking the reins Arrowhead jumped up into the air and flew off at high speed, trailing Zane and Silverclaw.

Jace sat outside the door of his house, watching the passersby of Dragona as he sewed the tear in Ryder's saddle. Ryder is a slim and slender lime-green dragon, with small matching spikes running down his spine. Though his color may be a little...bright and off-putting compared to your more tamer colors of dark orange or brown or grey, Ryder's personality completely matches his one-of-a-kind exterior. He sat idly by Jace's side and slept soundly...that is, until the sound of Zane and Olaf's horseplay overhead interrupted him. Jace scoffed at the duo and muttered 'oh, here we go again...'
Zane noticed that Olaf was now following him and Silverclaw.
He looked back at Olaf, not too far behind, as they both sped through a narrow pass between Dragona. "C'MON OLAF! Think you can keep up?" He said as his voice was distorted by the wind.
Zane pulled the reins of Silverclaw to the left side, "spin, girl" he said, and Silverclaw would spin extremely fast, as they cleared the pass. After that let go of the reins back to its original position, and Silverclaw flew upright again.
Although, unknowing to Olaf, Zane would then pull the reins backwards with force, and Silverclaw flew straight up, and then she proceeded to dive bomb into the water, her speed exponentially getting quicker and quicker by the second.
Just before the water, Zane tugged the reins and Silverclaw flew dangerously close to the water upright, nearly splitting the water in half at her speed.

"Okay, Ryder, this should do the trick." Jace said, admiring his handiwork on Ryder's saddle as he fitted it back onto the dragon. He looked off to the distance to see Zane and Olaf zig-zagging through the air, and Zane having his do a rather impressive roll at a point. "We're gonna need a better seat, boy. Let's go!" Jace mounted the beast and in a green flash, Ryder was off for the high cliff above the water.
