Silver scales glinting in the sky are the sign one as seen the aerial dragon Shao-D'ola. His grand, splendid form appears like a chain of jewels soaring through the blue vastness, and, as he is able to remain forever in flight, not once has his magnificent form been seen approaching the ground. He is said, therefore, to appear only to those who have received the blessings of the Heavens.

In Slavic mythology, Dola are the protective spirits which embody human fate. They can appear in the guises of a god, a cat, a man, a mouse, or a woman. They have their own preferences and provinces; and they would hound you if you made choices that were not planned by Fate.
