Adaofu is the result of a hybridizing between Sky, Forest, and Water dragons.  He has attributes from all three, but favors his Water heritage.   Sired by Anlang Qui upon the Forest Sea hybrid Mingling Qui; Adaofu hatched with some unusual abilities.  He had the green hair of a forest dragon, the body of a Sea dragon, and the breath of a sky dragon.  He followed his brother along with other dragons in the family to Phaeselis and is instrumental in the Silk trade.

Finding it's more expensive to continue to use the Silk Route to get silk to Phaeselis, he is going to go back to Qin'ae to retrieve some silkworm moth eggs and some mulberry seeds to start to produce silk in Phaeselis.  His brother, the patriarch, believes its a good idea.  He plans to leave within the month.
