Without a doubt, Red Dragons are unrivaled in their arrogance who believe everyone is beneath them, including other dragons. They value wealth above all else and work constantly during their long lives to amass as big of a hoard as they possibly can.

A Red Dragon prefers to live on high mountainous terrain, somewhere high enough where it can survey the land. They are highly territorial creatures who will fight anyone encroaching their domain, especially those stupid enough to enter their lair.

Most dragons earn various nicknames that portray their nature and power, and it is not a surprise when a dragon has more than one nickname. Some good examples are Fryrvys, Veolrurel, Ighycrem, Nindreorys, and Ayndierth.
