BarkerJr by ManedCorgie


BarkerJr is a quadruped purple western dragon. He loves technical things like programming, network security, and running servers. He also enjoys playing tabletop games and watching movies with friends. Gardening and testing out new recipes with friends is always fun, too. He likes to travel around the country to visit friends and family. When away from friends, he's also an avid strategy and simulation gamer.

He lives in Connecticut, USA with two wonderful roommates: a kitsune and a wolf. He enjoys the climate of New England and his friends in the area.

In stature, he's seven meters (23 feet) long from nose to tail, but most of that length is his tail. His skin is smooth like a serpent, and his horns twisted like an impala. In some lighting, he looks pink, but he's quick to assure you that it's really a light purple.
