Order denotes rank, so Topaz queens can control all dragons including Golds and so on and so forth with Green being the lowest rank. Order also denotes rarity, the higher on the list the rarer.
Dragons on Pern bond strongly to their riders and will kill themselves if their rider dies. They can communicate with their riders telepathically and with other dragons the same way. If they have to they can communicate with other riders and people, the higher ranking the more likely they are to do this.
All dragon names end in -th. The older the Dragon the smaller they are.
Bonds to: Strong willed, leader type heterosexual females, often the most hot headed female candidate

~Brown--5-15, including Brown and rarely Iron
~Bloodstone—0-12, NEVER anything higher then Bloodstone
~Coal--1-10, including Coal and rarely Brown
Color Description: Gold to yellow base with streaks of red and orange, can be more orange base with some yellow and red streaks (Like the Topaz stone)
Size: The biggest dragon on Pern, 45-70 meters long
Personalities: The Topazs are a hot-headed color, but are extremely smart and able to solve problems rapidly. They are also very organized.

Color Description: Ranges from a light gray to dark nearly black gray. (Irons and Coals can be the same or similar colors.)

Color Description: Light sky blue to midnight blue
