I could darn near do a short story, or maybe a novella, on Jipp and all the back-story that never made it into the actual book. Maybe one day.
He started out as a minor character. Very minor. A bit part. Then somewhere along the way, he turned into this secondary character with quite an interesting back-story which does involve one of the Main Characters, to a point.
Jaimin - the Main Character in question - doesn't get on with him, not as much as he doesn't with Teero, and part of that was because they were once rivals, but mostly it's because of Jipp's fascination with human women. Or at least one. His knight, Aaluna.
Yes, he's more into human females than his own kind. He's a scrawny-ass dragon, not much bigger than your average pony. When the species is dying, the little guys tend to lose out over the bigger, stronger boys.
Just not this little guy. ^_^
I so want to do a dragon version of him, all feathery and lean with his twin crests. Maybe I will at a later date. But here's him in the lesser-seen human form.
