My question is about the social behaviour of dragons in regards to the opposite gender. I've red a few tiny pieces about breeding and territorial behaviour of dragons but only pieces there sadly that I found so my question is if there are any sources OR what the behaviour is.
In essence my question regards the following things:
- Territorial behaviour
- Breeding behaviour
Territorial Dragons are from what I read (or can be) quite territorial. Originaly I had assumed that they dont tolerate other dragons living in their territory but the infos about the red dragon ruler of the five kings mountains vanquished taht thought as he tolerates not only wyverns but even other dragons inside his territory.
Here the question is: Do dragons who are mates end up sharing lairs or never? (I read one instance in the newer dragon books wehre a dragon was killed while he tried to visit the female dragon who laid their eggs.....so the two dragons had lairs quite far from each other)
Breeding Here the question part is if dragons mate for life or if they are only together for laying one hatch of eggs and then go separate ways or if its more a mix of those two (depending on the dragons in question) and also related to this is WHO decides that two dragons are going to lay eggs. As an example in shadowrun it is so that with very rare circumstances (which brings a mortal enemy to the other dragon) the female dragons decide from whom they lay eggs.
Also related here is: Do both dragons care for the eggs or only the females?
Like I said I'm interested if this info is standing somewhere (books) or if there is a general consens on these things.
