A friend told me that there are cannon circumstances in which a true dragon can be raised by a metallic dragon, is this true?
I'm not familiar with any canon to back up the idea of i.e. a Green Dragon raising a Bronze Dragon or something like that, and I'd considder it pretty unlikely for it to happen. But that being said, we are talking about intelligent creatures here, and on one level I can envision an evil dragon stealing an egg of a good dragon and trying to raise it as it's own, as part of some sort of long term scheme/plan. But again. If it happens, I believe that it would be increadibly rare.
I imagine it is risk vs reward. They can be raised on the hopes that they can overcome their natural tendencies, and they may even be successful. However I find it more likely for it to turn out Neutral rather then actually Good aligned, still greedy as far as gold and treasure is concenred and very agressive. A kind a creature that even if neutral could snap over to evil at any moment.
When the Atonement spell is tossed in, a Nuetral Dragon raised by Good dragons might be receptive to an Atonement spell. In fact it might even be needed to raise the dragon without it being a captive/imprisoned creature.
It may turn evil later on, due to it's natural tendencies, but it is still a posibility for it to remain good.
