Submit your pet to the Pet Spotlight!
Greetings, my name is Danadont. Are you afraid? I don't blame you, I do look very sinister. Don't jump to conclusions though; I'm not going to attack you.
Since I became Darigan, people have always hesitated before approaching me. They take one look at me and run a mile, clutching their petpets in fear. Yes, it's true; Neopets think I'm actually going to EAT their petpets! What do you mean "do you?" of COURSE I don't! I've had many petpets in the past, and other Neopets think the reason why I don't have one now is because I ATE it! I can see that look on your face, I did NOT eat it! The truth is, kitokat_mh bought a Mootix with the money for MY petpet, and is going to buy Studonty a Gallion to attach it to!
It's always the same thing, just because Studonty is cute and has faerie wings, everyone prefers him! I have wings too, but Neopets find my sinister, dark blue colour and wing spikes intimidating (I don't know why, I think I look rather fetching myself). I find it very difficult to make friends, whereas Studonty is the most popular Neopet of the family. I know Studonty is my brother, but I can't help but envy him. Maybe it's the Darigan in me, but sometimes I wish he'd fly into the Rainbow Pool with those cursed faerie wings and come out brown. Then, maybe, I'D get some attention for a change!
Even my other two siblings, Jezzamoo and Heptygone, prefer not to stand too close to me. Since becoming Darigan I seem to not enjoy playing games and drawing pictures of Faeries, so I end up sitting on the ground of our Neohome, reading about how much Neopia has improved since the fall of Darigan. I never knew Darigan, and must admit I don't know much about his business, but hearing people insult his name somehow makes me very angry. Maybe we Darigan pets absorb some characteristics of the dark overlord himself, and that's why it makes my stomach churns whenever I'm walking through...*shiver of disgust*...Meridell.
However, I feel more at home in some places. When we take a trip to the Haunted Woods or Darigan Citadel, I feel I can walk freely without being judged on my looks. Plus, everyone thinks I look awesome! And why shouldn't they? You don't see many Darigan Unis out there, and with my strong, powerful wings and long, black mane, even Studonty admits I do look impressive. Sometimes I give the spooky petpets a ride around the Haunted Woods to try and paint a more positive picture of Darigan Neopets.
Even though I look like this, don't assume that I'm dangerous. I DO have a gentle side. I honestly do like to play with plushies, and I've recently beaten the Ghost Lupe while helping the Defenders of Neopia (see, there IS a plus side of being so strong and sinister!).
I may look tough and scary on the outside, but on the inside I'm as soft and gentle as a Baby Cybunny! I hope that now you'll
realise how hard it can be being Darigan, and when you see a solemn Darigan Neopet walking by, you'll try to make friends,
rather than hiding behind your petpet in fear.
