* [[spoiler:EmergencyTransformation: After Wrey cuts off Tomas's hand, Wollen heals him by giving him an Ei jewel. Well, not so much "giving" as "slicing open his throat and jamming a centuries-old piece of crystallized soul into the wound."]]

FAMIB is a long form {{webcomic}} that started in 2001. It takes places in an AlternateUniverse where technology is more or less the same as now, but with plenty of odd twists, such as a race of [[LittleBitBeastly people with animal ears]] and another with [[WingedHumanoid wings coming out of the sides of their heads]].

The story [[TwoLinesNoWaiting mainly]] follows the [[ABoyAndHisX boy Tomas/Sein and his dragon]] Wollen, who [[spoiler:[[FromBadToWorse murdered most of Tomas's family]] and]] decided to adopt him. [[{{Deuteragonist}} The secondary main characters]] are Narancs (Tomas's brother) and Wrey, two [[{{Aesoptinum}} Ei]] agents, members of an elite special force who work for the government. Later chapters have also woven in some world-building backstory in the form of [[MeanwhileInTheFuture a biography Sein reads about the historical figure Hairam, who lived and died 200 years ago.]]

* HorseOfADifferentColor: Everybody seems to ride large, [[Franchise/FinalFantasy chocobo]]-like flightless birds as mounts. Interestingly, this world still has horses—or at least, it has ''unicorns'', which are completely non-magical and bred to be extremely domesticated pets for rich little girls.

* AllAnimalsAreDomesticated: A somewhat bizarre example: Wollen is horribly injured and being kept in an unused subway tunnel by a group of would-be dragon hunters, in the hopes that he'll help them catch their prey. One of the group, Eagle, talks to Wollen a fair bit and even explicitly compares him to a lonely stray dog—even though Wollen is fully intelligent and capable of speech, which is unheard of for a dragon. [[spoiler:This comes back to bite her in the ass when Wollen gets free and turns her into hamburger.]]
