Mirs did not wallow in self-pity. Though she had been feared and avoided all her life, she had never truly suffered. Still, she longed to meet someone she could relate to. And now her search had come to an end. Scarlet plumes of fire erupted around her, but her fully grown dragon companion barely flinched. Mirs didn't care if the world hated her. She had found her other half.
See Mirs, Dragon Savior.
Mirs probably derived from the word mir, meaning "peace; world" in various Slavic languages.
