A Guide To The Draco Family

There are three currently known members of the draco family: dragons, draygons, and draigons. Most people generalize them all as dragons–a serious misconception. Dracos are very different from one another, and to generalize them is similar to calling all dogs Labrador’s–a serious error.

Dragons have one head, a long, spindly body, a mane, and are full of wisdom, powerful magic, and the desire to do good in the world. These creatures are unable to fly, but they can breathe fire for a little bit. Friendly towards all creatures, they can easily become friends with humans.  They are commonly called Eastern dragons.  Mothers raise their young for long periods of time, and dragons become very attached to other creatures. They are very brightly colored, and should have different colors on their talons, lips, whiskers, manes, tails, and horns. They do not have forked tongues or wings.

Draygons are a lot like dragons…they just have three head and a whole lot more aggression issues. Overprotective and loyal, these creature can fly, breath huge amounts of fire for long periods of time, and have poisonous fangs. If raised from a hatchling, they can get along with humans, but mostly remain cold and indifferent. Mother raise their young for only short periods of time. Like the dragon, they are brightly colored, and should have a large variety of color on their talons, whiskers, manes, tails, horns, bellies, and wings. They don’t have forked tongues, but they do have wings.

Draigons have large bodies of thick, powerful muscle. They are usually covered in spikes, and don’t have manes. Highly aggressive, they jealously guard anything they become attached to, don’t get along with any other creature, and must be approached with extreme caution. There is very little, if any,  mother-offspring relationship, but the eggs are guarded carefully. Like the dragon, they have only one head, and like the draygon, they can breathe fire for a while and fly. They are more commonly called Western dragons, and come in only solid, dark  colors. Underbelly and the underside of their wings can and should differ in colors, and their tongues should be forked.

Any and all species of the draco family should be approached with caution. There are always exceptions to the rules, however. Dragons can be super-aggressive, and draigons could be super friendly.

All draco family members should be addressed as either “Lord” or “Lady”, and with a sign of respect, like a bow. Dracos are very picky when it comes to mannerisms, so one should always be respectful, and never try to casually address a draco family member or assume the dominant possession. Such behavior could result in death.

Always respect a draco’s hoard, or their treasured possessions. Never touch anything from the hoard without specific permission, and never degrade the value of the hoard in any way. Such disrespect could result in serious injury or death.
