Not so far away the small and lively dragons of elements called Safiras live in the magical land of Tarakona. In the forests, the water, the clouds and the mountains of Tarakona the dragons of earth, water, air and fire...bustle around.
The four big families of dragons live together in peace and harmony. Together they take care of the balance of the four elements in their empire.
The Safiras tell stories of an invisible, mysterious dragon-princess, which watches over her magical dragon-empire and also protects it. But none of the dragons has ever seen her. She ought to be gorgeous and very powerful.
All dragons have magical power to fulfil their important duties in Tarakona. With this power they are empowered by the sparkling gems of element. Every dragon has his own gem of element, which he hides in a personal, magical place and which gives him his personalized power. Only if the gem is located in this magical place, it is able to pass on its power to the dragon. In case of the safe keeping of the gem, a special scale on the dragons’ skin starts to shine and they know that everything is alright. But if they lose their gem, the glow expires and with it all their forces.
It turns out that the mysterious, invisible dragon-princess, which provides every dragon with its personal gem of element, has forgotten the little dragon of shadow
long time ago. With the help of the other dragons, Draki accomplishes to find the dragon-princess and to earn his gem. He is overjoyed and the shadow world on
the verge of Tarakona turns into a colorful world. Draki becomes a gorgeous dragon-prince and there is a magnificent marriage in the new empire of
But soon new dangers threaten …
Life of the four families of the dragons of element would be so quiet and harmonious, if only there wasn’t the small, evil dragon of shadow called Draki.
He lives banned in the gloomy shadow world behind the high volcanoes, as he is the only dragon, which does not possess a gem of element. He is envious of the Safiras and would like to be like them. That’s why he tries again and again to steal the gems of the other dragons at what he often acts so awkward that the other dragons can’t be really angry with him. Actually they even feel a bit bad for him. Will he any time find a way to belong to them?
The dragons of earth meet in the light-flooded, magnificent tree-residence between the branches of immemorial, big trees.
The droll dragons of earth are always cheerful and live in very close touch with nature. They are able to grow trees, flowers and bushes in a minimum of time, so that every dragon has enough to eat. In case of the dragons of fire accidentally setting a piece of forest in flames, the dragons of earth will take care of it and plant trees and bushes. Moreover, dragons of earth are able to talk with plants and in so doing pass on news.
The dragons of water assemble in the gardens of corals, a wonderful castle underwater with small pavilions and filigreed towers of corals among a colorful underwater world.
The funny dragons of water dominate the water, tide and flood and are friends of all sea dwellers. Especially they like playing between the twisted roots of the water-trees. They are able to make springs rise and to build fountains for the other dragons. To please the other dragons, they create beautiful plumes of water and trick fountains, until the air above the water glistens in all colors of the rainbow.
The dragons of air love their airy castle of clouds, which shines in all colors of the sky and from which they can oversee whole Tarakona.
The proud dragons of air rule the skies. No other dragon is able to fly as fast and majestic as a dragon of air. They rule the weather, make it rain, so that the plants of the dragons of earth thrive, let the sun shine or prohibit severe thunderstorms. Because of being the best flyers, they are well informed about Tarakona. There are few corners they have not seen before.
The mighty volcanic-towers in the high volcanoes are the assembly place of the dragons of fire. This is where the eternal fire of the volcanoes burns and where the rare flowers of fire bloom.
One should not annoy the impulsive dragons of fire, as they are testy and able to spit fire. With their fireworks they entertain the other dragons. They do campfires and care for heat and light. Their volcanoes produce perpetually new clouds for the dragons of air. Sometimes they can also get furious. If this happens, big thunderclouds brew up over the volcanoes and the dragons of air are very busy with banishing them.
