Personality: Generally quiet and calm, with definite book-ish leanings, Caolan is known for his interest in anything and everything... and also for attempting to record it in his ever-present notebook. His room is more of a laboratory than somewhere to sleep with several experiments on the go at once and notes scattered around. He has been described as the type of individual who wants to know how the universe works... and will take it apart to try to find out.
Skills and Abilities: Unlike his twin sister, Caolan is a pure Silver dragon like his maternal grandmother, rather than a tarnished Silver. As such he is able to control ice and lightning. This is combined with the Windsinger ability as an air mage to give the boy a gift for Storm raising. His Badb Catha bloodline also gives him the ability to shift into raven form, which whilst he was younger was more comfortable for him than the dragon form. Like all Kin he possesses the skill of transmutation, or molecular alteration. This magic can be used for healing, however, to use it in such a manner causes the dragon to tire quickly and if used too much, can completely exhaust it.
Marital Status: Single
Brief History: The son of Brandubh and Mira Badb Catha and the twin brother of Muirne, Caolan spends most of his time on Aerdon, either at his parents' chateau by the lake or at Blackthorn Keep. Most often he can be found in the company of his twin sister or Robin Silverleaf, although he is also friends with the Blackthorn and D'Riel twins, as well as Sierra Silverwing.
Along with Fechine D'Riel, Rhagi D'Riel and Morgan and Taylon Blackthorn, Caolan was kidnapped by Samara Mirage and taken to Tenobrous when he was six years old. This was a frightening experience for him, but one that does not appear to have scarred him unduly.
- Caolan's soul is silver and ice blue in colour and in its ground state will often appear to be a mist in form. At the heart of this burns a flame that is the core of the individual's soul.
- Caolan's companion is a female stairiss called Wadjet whom he was given during a visit to Draelond on Arlsyn by Chant Kiandra. Wadjet looks like a winged King Cobra with pale-blue scales. She was named after the patron goddess of Lower Egypt from Terran mythology. She is an intelligent creature and can communicate telepathically.
