Incomplete This is a fragment, it is in the initial stages of being written

These Dragons are based on Anne McCaffrey's works in her Dragonriders of Pern Series. Pernese Dragons were bio-engineered Kitti Ping Yung from a native species of Pern called firelizards to combat 'thread'. Though unlike the common mythical dragons of Earth for which they are named they did not have scales, but a leathery hide. It is from the color of this hide that the subspecies are known.
