I'm glad that some folks were picking up on the other dragon being female, I wasn't really sure how well it would carry over, what with them being animals, and reptilian nonetheless. Females actually tend to be larger than the males, with wings better shaped for flight, and more aggressive.
ok, time to try catching up on some replies, I think this is the only one that needs immediate answer:
re tricorn5 Tenshi Yami no Neko: not really, when working as body gaurds they don't have much time to form personal attachments (and it's considered inappropriate for non-Drakes to be involved with Drakes since despite their military training they have sort of child-like status), and their subservient role messes with their hormones (as sometimes happens in pack groups). They will form temporary relationships in the training school with other drakes, sort of like high-school sweetheart sort of thing, but nothing permanent.
Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting still, I'll start doing full replies again once I'm out of camp.
