Yes just wanted to add that myself and my family love the Heartseekers and can't wait for them to grow up so we can figure out potential mates for them.
Truly an awesome sprite. Thank you LadyLyzar! *huggles*

As members are obtaining adults, I'll tell you a little more about Heartseekers.

As mentioned in their description - Heartseekers are very social. Other dragons are attracted to their scent, so they are usually the life of the party, so to speak. Despite their muscular physique, they are quite soft-hearted and sensitive under their tough-looking exterior.

In addition to other dragons, prey is often attracted to a Heartseeker's scent, making hunting easier both for him and other dragons in the area. The scent can be detrimental as it may also attract predators. However, a Heartseeker is physically strong enough to deter most threats through brute force if necessary, in addition to potentially having a posse of other dragons protecting him.

The Heartseeker's unique scent comes from a musky liquid excreted from glands on his back, near the spines of his fins. Much like a preening bird, the Heartseeker rubs this liquid all over his fins during routine grooming sessions, replenishing anything lost if he has left scent trails. Scent trails usually fade after a few days, but they will disappear faster in the rain.

When a Heartseeker meets a new dragon, he uses his keen sense of smell to find their den. If the dragon lives alone, and no other dragon scents are nearby, he will conclude that the dragon likely does not have a mate. Using a musky scent trail, he will often lead two mate-less dragons to each other. However, this does not guarantee they will get along.

Each Heartseeker's scent is a little different, which helps them identify each other. They tend to avoid each other, as other creatures may not be able to tell their scents apart. This would potentially cause confusion if two Heartseekers crossed paths while leading dragons to meet each other.

I am just waiting for my pair to grow up, maybe another 20 minutes, and I loved here more about their backgrounds. Mine will eventually both have stories, and anything that helps further our understanding of the breed is a wonderful help. Thank you, LadyLyzar, for these beautiful dragons, and all the thoughtful work that you have put into bringing them to life. <3

Interesting info, I must say. :V

My Heartseeker just grew up so I bred him off with a mate and they produced a lovely eggie.

Quoting LadyLyzar's additional info and closing the thread since out dragons are becoming adults now.
