  • Specialty Item: to use this item, left-click on it in your Hoard. This pulls up a menu that allows you to select which dragon you would like to use it on. Clicking a dragon shows you a preview of them with this gene before actually changing it. Once a dragon is selected, click Apply Changes to change their primary gene to Skink.


The Skink gene gives a dragon a broad stripe running horizontally along each flank, with a row of spots inside of each. These stripes are accented by two fainter stripes, which tend to change from a muted color on the bodily flank to a vibrant color along the tail; the same bright color tends to also be present under the dragon's chin, and along their throat. The Skink gene also gives gradients on the legs and underbelly, and very notably on the tail (into a darker color which brings out the aforementioned vibrant stripes).

The accentual body stripes leading into a brilliantly-colored tail give this gene a considerable resemblance to the pattern associated with the real world five-lined skink.
