Tairn is a black dragon, massive, who looks like a killing machine.
Tairn’s tail functions like a morningstar. The bludgeoning force of its club-like tail, combined with the lethal spikes, can tear a person apart just as effectively as a dagger-tail. He is considered one of the deadliest dragons in Navarre.
Tairn has an enormous scarred black wing and giant golden eyes. His scales are large and thick and surprisingly warm to the touch. He has long taloned toes and rock hard scales on his underbelly.
As a black dragon, Tairn stands out as the most intelligent and discerning among dragons. He is also the rarest and most cunning of his kind. As per Professor Kaori, a renowned dragon expert, Tairn’s cunning is unparalleled. Outsmarting a black dragon like Tairn is simply not possible.
Tairn’s bonds are extremely power, both to human and mate. His last bond with Nolan nearly killed him.
Violet refers to Tairn’s voice as low and arrogant.
Him and Sgaeyl have the strongest bond in centuries.
Tairn exhibits a firm demeanor towards Violet. From the onset, he forms a profound bond with her. Unlike other dragons, he goes beyond the call of duty to protect Violet from harm. This is evident not only during battles, but also when she struggles to maintain her seat on his back, and even when she faces a vicious attack in her room.
The legendary battle dragon.
The overprotective dad.
The king’s size flying warm bed.
The moving, flying parapet.
The damned meteor.
The killing machine.
