In my book, all my characters are dragons. They live in cities dotted about wherever there is a convenient resource-- a river, game for hunting, both, etc. My protagonist's cousin Davard is different from other dragons. He has high functioning Asperger's syndrome, but nobody in this medieval dragon world knows what that is, so it's not mentioned by name in the book. I'm wondering what I could do to show Dav's Aspieness beyond just having him state that he's not like other dragons. I know how I want Dav's strangeness to affect his life; it's the specifics I need to get a handle on. So here's a little info on his life so far. Dav is the youngest of two in a family that likes to move around. He's lived in three countries and has excellent linguistic skills (there's a great imbalance between his linguistic capacity and his math skills.) His father is a shy metalworker (whose shyness seems disappears whenever he's called on to pretend to be someone other than himself) and his older brother is an apprenticed tracker in the Inquisitorius. The only members of his own species that Dav has lived with his whole life are his parents and brother. So his social skills are even more lacking with his own kind than with other dragon races. However, Dav has lived in his own society long enough that he's become normal-- at least, normal enough not to suspect he isn't. Which is the problem. As a high-functioning autistic, people get turned off by any weirdness he exhibits because they assume it's intentional. And even if they realize it isn't, it still creeps them out. This is the case with Narta Arsetvisha, the girl he's in love with. He's known her for eight years and had feelings for her for nearly that long, and was best friends with her brother. When her brother left to take an apprenticeship in the Inquisitorius, Dav's relationship with Narta suffered and he realized he had been making her increasingly uncomfortable without picking up on the warning signs. He hasn't told her how he feels, but at this point, he wouldn't be surprised if she knows; whether she does or not, it's clear she doesn't have feelings for him. Enter Gazi, my protagonist's best friend. She takes an immediate liking to Dav because of his friendly personality, and he hasn't done anything weird enough to turn her off yet. They bond enough that Dav confides in her about Narta. By now Gazi's noticed some of Dav's odder habits, so she feels like she's come to understand Dav and is anxious to help him overcome his awkwardness in any way. So... what habits would a dragon with Asperger's syndrome have? How would that condition manifest itself in a dragon in contrast to a human?
