Shadow Dragon?
I consider myself draconic for sure, but how to better describe how I see myself in words beyond that is proving difficult for me. My shape looks like a western dragon, but that is where a lot of things end. A quadruped creature that has a long neck and tail plus a set of wings on its back. Nothing really startling there, but its what the shape is made up of that stumps me.

Its like fire in how it rolls and flickers, but black and with a mass to it. Fire neither has mass nor is black. Further, I’m not just covered in this substance. I am made of it. I also often find myself trying to liken how it feels underneath to that of a star (with like feeling like my “heart” is more of a core); however that still leaves some issues. However, I’m not extremely hot, is black, does not give off a huge amount of light if any at all, and such.

My body seems to be made of the stuff with no organs, bones, etc inside. Again, I feel reminded of a star with a core deep within. Or, trying to think of animals, I am more reminded creatures like unicellular organisms or animals like a jellyfish or whatnot. There is an anatomy to it, but not one built around bones and organs like we’re all used to.

So I’ve begun consider if I am like the shadowkin people occasionally talk about. However, all the shadows and shades I’ve seen seem to often talk about being humanoid or having a shapeshifting quality to them. I am just dragon shaped. Plus I don’t really feel I fit a sort of “dark energy” or similar sort of feel. Though to be honest our system is rather energy blind it seems.

Re: Shadow Dragon?
What you describe as far as being made of black, mutable material makes me think of shadowkin as well.

Don't let the idea that every shadowkin has to be humanoid deter you either. One member here was humanoid in shape but also had long spikes and a serpentine tail. I imagine like other energy beings that a shadow could have a core form of anything. So why not a shadow dragon?

Re: Shadow Dragon?
One of my major "forms" is of a lion-like being that's made of nothing but some sort of dark, shadowy mass. It's very animalistic even if it's appearance can be reminiscent of two-legged beings. It's also not polymorphic even if I am.

So, I just wanted to say you're not alone in your description even if my form is different. I do consider it a type of shadowkin as well.

Re: Shadow Dragon?
I think I myself may be some kind of dragon too, but given that i have no memories of such, energy dragon of some kind seems to fit. I have bat like wings, my magical signature takes the form of flames and in my mind's eye my body is surrounded by an 'egg' of swirling white and sky blue (which is incidentally the colour of my wings too.)

In short, adding my own two sense, but also thanks to Chimera for this post. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> If anyone on the energy beings forum would like to message me to talk more, that would be great. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
