Dragons are essentially magical winged reptiles of great power. Depending on their type, they can be greedy, vain, proud, just, cunning, intelligent, wise, and very powerful indeed. They fall into two main groups, Chromatic and Metallic dragons.

Chromatic dragons are evil creatures, known for their greed, envy, and pride, while the Metalic dragons tend to be more good-natured, willing to protect others rather than attack. However, they all equally possess and like their own treasure hoards.

Each of them is unique in their own way, possessing extraordinary strength and magical power. They can be the epitome of goodness or evil, and all possess a true name. Examples of good Dragon names are Fraygiephoarth, Roirrayss, and Odhossyn.

Dragons have always been mythical creatures worthy of fear and admiration. They have proved to be essential figures in stories, myths, and legends, time and time again, providing ample amounts of inspiration and awe.

Even if a certain dragon isn’t evil and won’t intentionally harm you, teasing or provoking them is never a wise choice to make. Whenever they make something their business, they make sure it’s done properly.

However, some are known to prefer to be the power behind the throne, working from the shadows and the unknown. Each of them has a true name, regardless of whether it’s known to others or not.
