[[   ]]  - Used similarly to quotation marks and indicates when a rider and their dragon are speaking to each other mentally.

**  **  - Used to indicate mental images both received and sent from an owner to their firelizards.

/between/ - A dragonic ability to jump from one place to another in a matter of seconds.  /between/ is a reference to the three-second period of time of absolute void while the dragon is transferring to the new place or time.
