|“||Dragons are power incarnated. Kings of all supernatural creatures and have been revered by humans as divine beings since the beginning of civilization. Despite this, they are isolationists who vow to remain neutral regardless of everything and will only fight when provoked. Apparently, they have an unwritten code of honor that even the so-called "Evil Dragons" have to follow. Quite impressive... for a bunch of overgrown flying lizards.||„|
Dragons are a race of ancient and powerful reptilian monsters that are feared by others as they were admired in the Supernatural World.
While dragons are normally regarded as a myth by most of Humanity, there have been reported sightings of these creatures or beings in a similar shape to them. Local islanders of Saint Kits which is located in the eastern Caribbean, reported seeing a dragon around the island's main volcano. Additionally, students at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine reported seeing massive shadows in the fog around the volcano as well. These sightings were just months before a group of tourists saw bursts of flames and heard loud roars. Fields being lit on fire was a major problem in Saint Kits, strangely, the government would deny any claims in the existence of dragons nor would they comment on it in the first place.
They are immortal, strong, intelligent, and can breathe fire onto their enemies. Widely regarded as terrifying yet awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world and are frequently referred to in Asian and medieval European folklore. Able to fly and destroy armies in a single stroke of flames from their mouths, they are one of the most dangerous and strongest creatures in the world of the supernatural. A majority of dragons can be quite aggressive and territorial whilst others only choose to live in harmony not bothering to threaten the humans below, regardless of their staining in the world.
There are many different species of dragons, each one either more powerful or deadlier then the last. The species range from numerous elements, however, a distinct type from the normal draconic genus would be the dragons of demonic origin; those born in the pits of hell where they only thrive on malice and sin. These dragons are powerful and mostly responsible for the species reputation.
Dragons are especially revered and worshipped in Asian culture and religion as they are said to be wise and powerful creatures, the mentors of kings, and the creators of kingdoms. Asian dragons are believed to be a separate species from European dragons. Most of these Asian dragons reside in the sky but only two races that are earthbound; the Fuzanglon, which are underworld dragons who guard treasures, and the Dilong, which are Earth dragons who live underground and control the flow of water. Dragons and their associations with rain are the source of the Chinese customs of dragon dancing and dragon boat racing. Many East Asian deities and demigods have dragons as their personal mounts or companions. Dragons were also identified with the Emperor of China, who, during later Chinese imperial history, was the only one permitted to have dragons on his house, clothing, or personal articles.
Dragons also play major or notable roles biblical scriptures but are used as allegorical terms for malevolent entities. A dragon is mostly seen as a symbol of destruction and one that will soon bring about the end of man. This is due to the fact that during the War in Heaven, Lucifer took the form of a massive and powerful red dragon in order to combat the forces of Heaven. Interestingly, the description of the Leviathan in the Book of Job fits the appearance of a dragon especially when God tells Job that out of his nostrils and mouth "come forth burning lights and sparks" which might indicate that dragons lived alongside humanity in the far distant past. Another was when Satan took the form of a dragon to combat the forces of Heaven in the Book of Revelations.
There are many different species of dragons, each one either more powerful or deadlier than the last. The Dragon is capable of emitting streams of powerful fire, and the older the dragon, the hotter the heat they can emit. The species range from numerous elements, however, a distinct type from the normal draconic genus would be the dragons of demonic origin; those born in the pits of hell where they only thrive on malice and sin. These dragons are powerful and mostly responsible for the species reputation.

Dragons are some of the most dangerous and extraordinarily powerful beasts in the supernatural world. While they are normally seen as breathing streams of powerful fire from their mouths, they possess an extensively wide variety of power and strength, with each dragon being stronger than the last and vice versa but this is all dependent on either their hierarchical ranking or species.
Their most common use of attack is emitting streams of powerful fire, and the older the dragon, the hotter the heat they can emit.They are also said to be highly connected to magic and more intelligent species learn magic often using destructive and defensive spells, as such the species is known to range from numerous elements. Some dragons could even combine their inherent elemental power with the magic they learned and could use effectively. The combined usage of their inherent power and magic provides for even more devastating techniques.
Eastern dragons are strongly associated with water and weather in popular religion. They are believed to be the rulers of moving bodies of water, such as waterfalls, rivers, or seas. The Dragon God is the dispenser of rain as well as the zoomorphic representation of the yang masculine power of generation. Basically, Eastern Dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. Eastern dragons are often regarded as being far stronger than European dragons although the subject is intensely debated as European dragons have showcased power on par or even greater than Eastern dragons.
All of the draconic species seem to share a universal language among their kind called Dovahzul, a language, while difficult, is possible for humans to learn as evident in Abigail Hawkins speaking to Derous in Dovahzul though she only does so when giving the dragon specific commands. These humans that learn this language are usually known as Dragonborns.
Dragons are believed to have originated from the ancient Mesopotamian goddess Tiamat (or the Nammu) who is often titled the Mother of Dragons. After Tiamat was slain by Marduk, her blood seeped and spread from her severed heads, and each of the severed heads of Tiamat collapsed unto various sections of the Earth, particularly in areas that make up the elemental components of the planet. Two dragons emerged from the main head, which fell upon the highest mountain, a female wyrm and a typical dragon but with wings whereas the wyrm was wingless. These two were the first dragons to be born of Tiamat's corpse.
The mountain of which the first two dragons emerged also erupted from the sheer force of their appearance alone becoming the first volcano on Earth. More dragons emerged following the birth of the first two. The first dragons emerged when her divine blood from each of her heads gave life to the elemental concoction which a particular draconic class embodies; red dragons emerged from volcanoes, blue dragons from the oceans, green dragons from the forests, and black dragons from the shadows. Gold dragons were said to have emerged from the chemical makeup that creates the alloy of gold itself but with supernatural elements in this case and are an extremely rare breed. White dragons are believed to have emerged from the sky.
These dragons resided amongst the dinosaurs, with many far outliving their prehistoric cousins and even surviving various extinction events. After the fall of Adam and Eve and the first humans creating settlements around the globe which was now devoid of such ancient beasts, the dragons still retained their position among the hierarchical pyramid. They did not bother the Protoplasts or the Antediluvian descendants, but their imagery spawned numerous tales in carvings, murals, and biblical/mythical poems. While the earliest humans held the dragons in awe and reverence, some dragons instead looked down upon humans, viewing them as vicious animals that murder and pillage to satiate their lust and pride. As such, these dragons took to destroying such humans even at the cost of those who did no wrong. Thus, throughout the centuries, dragons cemented themselves in the fantastical imagery of humanity, either helping the latter destroy the forces of darkness, or become the very beasts they so greatly feared in European folklore.

|“||You laughed at our existence. Regarded us as nothing more than a myth. Gaze upon the land you stand on, boy. What was once green and lush became nothing more than ash and cinder. Life extinguished with nothing more than a breath. We are fire made flesh. And fire is power. We are NO laughing matter.||„|
