Epi, from a distance, looks like a normal dragonet. She is one, to be quite fair. No one stares at her in the streets, or whispers behind her back when she walks by. Epi is the kind of dragon you wouldn't glance twice at.
But let's pretend for a minute that you do - perhaps it's her happy-go-lucky there's-nothing-wrong-in-the-world kind of expression on her face, or the strange pale colour of her scales. But no matter the reason, you glance again.
Epi's main distictive feature is her scale colour, a pale, minty-green. It may look a bit bland, and it is, but this is not the end of this cheerful little LeafWing.
There are patches of lighter green, dappled all along her spine and wings. Her legs and claws fade out to the same washed-out green colour, and she has matching dots right beneath her eyes.
Her talons are pale ivory, almost silver. They are small, yes, but sharp as needles. She always makes sure her talons are well taken care of, and aren't chipped or damaged in any way.
Her horns are the same colour as the dapples along her back, but fade out to a paler green at the tips. Unlike a usual LeafWing's, Epi's horns aren't wavy and swooped, and are instead blunt and straight.
Sometimes Epi is mistaken for a hybrid, but she doesn't mind. To clarify, though, she isn't one, and would prefer to not have you call her one.
Epi's wing membranes are the same green as her horns, and like them, faintly spread into a more lighter shade at her wingtips. The spines along her back are very small and hardly visible, but the webbing that connects them nonetheless are the same as her wing membrane.
Her eyes are dark green, with large pupils and irises that are barely distinguishable from one another. Her sclera is pale green, sometimes looking like it's glowing, in the right lighting, of course.
Her eyes are always open wide and alert, and so are her other senses. Epi has amazing reflexes, and seems to be the first to realize if something's off in a situation. However, she has a habit of just brushing it off and ignoring her gut.
She lacks the bulbous appendage most LeafWings have at the end of their tail, but she regards this as a blessing, rather than a curse. While other LeafWings tail's are heavy and a pain to drag around, Epi is light, and quick on her feet. She may not be the best fighter, but she is very fast.
Epi is very self-conscious about her posture; slumping makes her feel like a tired old person, and puffing out her chest makes her seem like a self-centered naive idiot.
Instead, Epi is in-between; sometimes slouching a bit, sometimes being an idiot. It must be tiring, but Epi is filled with an unfathomable amount of energy and never seems to get tired at anything.
Epi loves to hike, and that's where you'll see her the most. Up on a trail in the quiet wilderness, all alone save for a few plants hanging out of her backpack and a notepad.
Epi can also be seen in her greenhouse, which is filled to the brim with philodendrons and ferns. Epi hopes to become a biologist one day, and figure out cures for diseases by means of plant-made medicine.
Epi has a bad habit of squinting when she's confused, or just because she can't see anything. If she's not five feet away from the chalkboard, she can't read it and will have to ask either her teachers or friends to read it aloud for her.
