Did Sanzu actually know how mountain climbing worked? Not really? Did the small dragon care? Not really. Was she happy about the current progress or her trip? Again, not really.

It was a series of tumbles that were  greeting her most recent attempt to scale a mountain. She was trying so darn hard to get up, and had reached an impasse. Could she walk around the steep cliff before her? Likely, but her young mind couldn’t quite comprehend such. Her sharp claws latched onto the cliff face, wings flapping in a rapid fashion. They only pulled her off the wall, and with a grunt she landed sprawled on her back.

Huffing, Sanzu returned to a stand. These rocks were so annoying! How dare they defy her, a mighty dragon?! She stuck her tongue out and blew a raspberry at the sheer cliff before her, her long tail smacking into the ground. “Shtuuped clef, cliff, stop ruinin’ funs!” Sanzu shouted. She scratched at the rock face with a claw, then recoiling backwards at the unpleasant noise that sounded.

Sanzu whimpered and sat down after that, her ears lowered. This was an impossible mission, wasn’t it? Hopeless. She was never going to get up there and learn how to fly at this rate! So the small dragon sat down, pouting at the inanimate object that was a cliff face, her tail irritably twitching behind her.

✧ Sanzu
✧ physically weak, mentally weak
✧ cis female | she/her
✧ [will add when added to a clan]

APPEARANCE.
✧ dragon (ref. ) | health: 100%
— a small, 4 month old, foot and a half tall dragon. She is essentially monochromed in shades of greens. Yellow horns curl back from this hatchling's head and slope upwards. Her snout ends in something akin to a beak, allowing for her to crack into shelled fruits and vegetables. A singular spike sticks out from between her snout and the end of her mouth. Large ears allow for this tiny dragon to hear with ease. The ends of her ears have deeper green tufts on them. Her deep green wings are small, and will take time to grow in. Her grey eyes are broken by the red coloration of her iris. Her sharp teeth part to reveal a glowing green tongue. Her talons in the front are sharp as needles, while her hind feet have more thicker claws. Her tail is long and prehensile and allows for her whole body to be suspended by such alone. A line of scales go alongside each sides of her throat. A row of scales descends from the back of her head to the end of her tail, which ends with a tuft of bright yellow fur. Her chest has a row of bent spikes that descend down to her stomach, where they then turn to tiny nubs.

  Mountain climbing was not the sort of sport most people would teach kids. If you really needed to get to the other side of a mountain, it was usually more practical to walk around it. Those who took the time to actually climb usually did so for fun, or for self-discovery, or because they were just built to do well in mountains. Straw was primarily the first two, but she did have some adaptations that were helpful when scaling cliffs. Pseudo-thumbs, used by other red pandas to hang onto bamboo, could be used to find purchase on steep mountainsides. She was also built to scale trees quickly, which could help with getting over small ledges.

  All that said, the cliff that Straw noticed Sanzu trying to climb was large- large enough that Straw had never tried to scale it directly, opting to go around it each time she came up here. The winged reptile probably wasn't used to traversing sheer cliffs, either. "Cliff's too steep," Straw said softly as she approached, casting her gaze up at the top of the cliff. Pointing at the gentler slope in the other direction, she added, "I always go around."

Sanzu was built for climbing up trees instead of sharp cliff faces. A strong tail to essentially swing between branches, her geeen color scheme, and the alternating placement of dew claws meant that trees were supposedly her strongest habitat. Not cliffs. The small dragon was stumped, her forked tongue flickering out from her maw.

Her head snapped over to look at Straw when she approached, her tail momentarily giving a delighted wag. “But it sso biggie, how go aworund when biggie?” Sanzu asked. She leaned back on her haunches and gestured to the cliff face with her talons, then slumping against the ground again. Her ears dropped a little further, and a disgruntled huff sounded from the young dragon. Then she paused- the other had pointed, and she hadn’t even noticed! Her scaly head snapped to look at the slope. In a swift motion she was on her feet again, bouncing rapidly. “Lies steepuh, less steeyu!” Sanzu happily chattered. A delighted flap of her wings followed her cheerful statement, scrambling on over to the incline with frenzied vigor.
