About the design:

As you may know, I’m a scientist. It turns out that scientists share a trait in common with wizards; we are an extremely curious folk, constantly asking “Why?” and “How?” about everything we see. My field of study is Biology, but I’m still curious about all sorts of other things. Two of those being Astronomy and, of all the crazy starts, Quantum Physics. Of course, I understand only the tiniest bit of the math involved but it is still fascinating to think about.

Singularities are the cores of the phenomena we know as black holes. Stars are basically enormous thermonuclear reactors delicately balanced on the edge of exploding. A black hole forms when the fuel runs out and a star collapses. All the immense gravity turns inward and it starts pulling in everything around it, forming a ‘hole’ in space and time that even light can’t escape. Dragons, however, don’t have to obey the laws of Physics or, for that matter, of Quantum Physics. This is my interpretation of a very special dragon restoring space and time from the grip of a singularity.
