The Light Flight is one of the 11 flights in Flight Rising.
The light dragons of the Sunbeam Ruins are philosophers. They prefer to be unbiased and logical, revealing the nature of the world as do rays of the sun’s light. Of all the dragons, light dragons are the most scholarly, holding the pursuit of truth as the highest virtue a dragon might aspire to. Scrolls and relics are their favored treasures. The god of the Light Flight is the Lightweaver.
The Light Flight is located in Sunbeam Ruins. The land is separated into four parts: Sundial Terrace, Mirrorlight Promenade, The Hewn City and The Beacon of the Radiant Eye. The Ruins are bordered by the Shadow, Water, and Lightning Flight territories, with the Nature territory as a neighboring island.
|Little is known about the original architects of the giant sundial, but many continue to study feverishly to understand its origins. Each summer, on the longest day of the year, dragons from all over the world gather around the monument and etch the outline of its giant shadow into the stone floors of the terrace, an activity that has been practiced since before the Light dragons ever settled.|
|A massive, decorative expanse of ancient architecture, angled to perfectly line up with the rising and setting of the sun. Hundreds of crumbling pillars exist as totems to families and clans that call this platform home. Adolescent dragons practice taking flight and landing along its narrow walkways, and hatchlings play in its many crevices and on its majestic stairwells.|
|A ruined, skeletal landscape of shattered structures, gripped by a shade that boggles even the Light dragonflight's most studious archaeologists. In this broken city lay secrets that are too mysterious to unearth, and even the bravest dragons are given pause when approaching its haunted outskirts.|
|A crumbled, but welcoming tower that resides on the eastern seaboard. From this cliff, the Lightweaver watches and waits for any dragon that may be making a trip across the sea. It is an important vantage point; she can survey the golden rolling hills speckled with ruins and redwoods, and see everywhere the light touches.|

Powers and Abilities
Light Dragons rule over the element of Light, which has been described as untouched brightness. As proven by the Lightweaver and local familiars, natural luminescence seems to be one of many possibilities. The element also appears to brighten its surroundings, such as the Sunbeam Ruins. Golden color schemes are a common theme.

Given the shadows present, the time frame of this scene would be approximately mid-morning.
