Well, this Survivor of the Month is a bit of a surprise. A newer, more recent survivor, comparatively speaking.
“I know a guy who knew a guy who was eaten by a horde of angry mimes.”
“Pawns can become queens if they reach the end of the board.”
“Corny rhymes still have power, cure this man within thy hour!”
“Have some confidence. Throw out an insult every once and a while just to let them know you mean business. ” ***

Corny Rhymes Still Have Powers: Some of Dren’s Finest Hours
Dren, a relative newcomer to the site, has made quite an impression in a short period of time.
Dren may have started out as a thin greenish humanoid but quickly revealed himself to be a high-flying griffin with a fully stocked island hideaway and the ability to shift into human form. This is an important distinction here. He isn’t a human who shifts into griffin form. He’s a griffin who can assume human form.
(This appears to be one of the main impediments to his star-crossed relationship with Raven, who would have to assume griffin form to join him on his island.)
Dren is generous to a fault. He often invites other griffins and even reasonable dragons to hang out on his luxury (by griffin standards!) island retreat.
It’s a tendency that gets him into a trouble sometimes, like the time one of his guests left behind a frost dragon egg and he didn’t know what to do with it. (Spoiler: he contemplated being a dragon dad until Zyboragon convinced him to do the right thing.)
He’s also famous for making and giving away amulets via teleportation that use ruby-bound powers to temporarily turn you griffin. These amulets are very rare and valuable but don’t pawn them or you will be giving somebody a big shock. Also user beware, at least one user has reported seeing spots and passing out before it worked.
Dren’s missions here on the site include:
-making sure Raven is okay
-growing his tribe of griffins which has already gone from 54 to 109. Altho several lost in the manticore war so I’m not sure of the exact count at this time
-defeat the manticores.
When he’s not doing any one of those important things, he might be reading up on stuff in books like, Iceland: Portal for Demon Activity?
So if Dren says hello to you, which he often does, unless you’re a manticore don’t be too afraid. Just don’t call him a fluffy pigeon or treat him like a taxi. And if he teleports you one of his amulets? Receiver beware.
And BTW Dren? I’m still waiting for mine…. 😉
