Any Subspecies?: Yes
# of Subspecies: 7 for now
Subspecies Descriptions: The subspecies are dependent on the weather in which the dragon hatched, and each have a unique breath weapon.. There are:
-Clear Day Caeli: Sky blue Caeli Dragons who hatch in the day when the sky is clear. Their breath weapon is blue fire; cooler than regular fire, but warmer than a Night Caeli's fire.
-Partly Cloudy Caeli: Sky blue Caeli Dragons with white and pale gray splotches. They hatch in the day, when there are some clouds in the sky, but still some blue sky showing through. Their breath weapon is a white mist that is hard to see through. Although, it is easier to see through than a Cloudy Caeli's mist.
-Night Caeli: Black Caeli Dragons who hatch at nighttime. Their breath weapon is purple fire, which is slightly colder than a Clear Day Caeli's fire, as well as dimmer.
-Cloudy Caeli: Pale gray Caeli Dragons who hatch during a cloudy day. Their breath weapon is a gray mist, harder to see through than a Partly Cloudy Caeli's mist.
-Sunrise/Sunset Caeli: Orange, yellow, and pink Caeli Dragons who hatch during sunrises and sunsets. Their weapon is just plain old fire.
-Storm Caeli: Dark gray Caeli Dragons who hatch during a rainstorm or a thunderstorm. Their breath weapons are lightning bolts.
-Blizzard Caeli: Blizzard Caeli: Rare, white Caeli Dragons who hatch during snowstorms and blizzards. They basically have an IceWing's frostbreath as their breath weapon.
Life Cycle: Caeli Dragons do not have a specific breeding season. They lay clutches of one to four eggs. The eggs always change with the weather and the color of the sky. Because of this, Caeli Dragon eggs need to have open sky for them to hatch. After 2 years, the egg hatches, and a small, little drago comes out. Caeli hatchlings learn how to fly at a young age, but their breath weapon and supersonic roar come in at about 10-15 years old. At ages 20-40, the Caeli dragon becomes an adult, and is ready to take on life by themselves.
