Glowyrm Pygmies are by far one of the most common breeds of dragon. They are a fun and playful breed, known for chasing lights around - not unlike a cat chasing a laser pointer. Each Glowyrm will develop a particular fascination with a certain color of light which they will eventually emanate from their own bodies once they mature. Though their glow can shine bright enough to serve as a flashlight, they have also developed the ability to mute it in order to avoid detection by predators. Glowyrms are incredibly small, most never getting larger than a kitten, and they are incredibly agile. Once a glowyrm has been taken in by a human, they become practically inseparable from their owners and, while not uncommonly bright, they are trainable and can often be taught a variety of tricks and commands.
