Species Notes

Nocturnal by nature, the Fleurs-de-Nuit ("Flowers of the Night") were instrumental to the French military because of their ability to see in the dark. However, a burst of bright light (usually through flash powder) could injure their sensitive moon-white colored eyes. Their dark colorations made them invisible at night.

William Laurence and Temeraire encountered this breed on a number of occasions. They were used to attack the HMS Allegiance as they journeyed to China, and again by the French to monitor the walls of town during the Siege of Danzig during the Prussian campaign.
