Types of Dragons

Flying Dragons

Flying dragons tend to only fly at night and when in flight are often confused with condors or eagles. Seeing them from the ground is not an easy task since they are incredibly good at changing their colors and blending in with their surroundings. It is believed that their wingspan is only a mere 10ft, if that and they only fly in groups when migrating. Flying dragons are found primarily in once-volcanic mountainous and tropical places. When it is not migrating season they tend to behave like the larger, flightless dragons and stay in caves, volcanic craters and deep mountainous canyons.


A creature with two wings and two legs. Often the Wyvern is shown with claws on the wings and having a sharp tail tipped with poison. Wyverns are sometimes called "dragonets" in England because of how closely the resemble dragons. Wyverns typically live in caverns which are readily identified by bones and jewels sprawled about.

Water Dragons

These dragons tend to spend most of their lives in the water (usually freshwater lakes with outlets to the sea). They sometimes migrate when the lakes freeze over and are fish-eaters. They are depicted with having a long neck, small head with lots of sharp teeth, and paddle-like legs used for maneuvering. The most famous water dwelling creature is the Loch Ness "monster."


A basilisk is reproduced by its own kind, rather than a rooster laying an egg and it being incubated by a toad, like the cocatrice. This creature has no legs, instead it slithers about on the ground. With a red-scaled body (upper portion) and a crowned head, the basilisk is a strange sight. Deadly and cureless is the basilisk's poison and with just their gaze they turn things into stone. The only way to destroy a Basilisk is to trick it into looking at itself (through a mirror), thus turning itself into stone. There are, however, three things that are immune to its gaze and noxious breath. The weasel, the rooster whose crow sent basilisks running, and rue, a plant which nullified the breath (eaten by the weasels to heal themselves). The basilisk, king of serpents, is thought to be confined to northern Africa and western Europe, just like the Cocatrice.


Sea Serpents

Sea Serpents live only in water, fresh or salt, were once confused as being gigantic squid or huge masses of sea kelp.

Flightless Dragons

Mostly found in the Caribbean or Mexico, they are not known to be aggressive or vicious towards humans. They live in water-filled limestone caverns. Flightless dragons are thought to control the onset of summer and can produce rain.



Amphitere's originate from Mexico and have only wings.


Nagas are strange creatures with a snake-like body and the head of a human. They are sometimes thought to be able to morph from full human to full snake. Nagas do not have wings nor are they considered harmful or dangerous. For more information about Nagas, check out Naga: The Serpent.



Wyrms have no legs or wing. They are referred to as ancient dragon. Some famous wyrms are the Laidly Worm and the Lambton Wyrm.


The cocatrice is very similar to the basilisk. So similar in fact that the cocatrice is the result of the metamorphosis the basilisk under went in the Middle Ages. The cocatrice has bird-like legs, feathered wings, and wattles. It still has the scaled body and tail, however. The cocatrice is the child of a rooster (only a rooster) and is hatched by a toad or serpent. The Icelandic equivalent is the skoffin.


Drakes have legs and no wings. Fire-drakes, which breath fire and are a reddish color and Cold-drakes which breath snow (cold stuff) and are a light blue color are the two types of Drake. These dragons do not fly and their size ranges from 4'-40'.


Dragon Colours

Green Dragons - Green Dragons are the smallest so many people think that makes them the weakest. While they are not physically powerful, they are the dragons of the earth element and are in a way very material beings. Green is the colour of life, and these small but important dragons are full of it.


Gold Dragons - Golds are the chivalrous knights of the dragon world. They honourable, brave, kind, wise, and very good in the field of Magick. They enjoy taking on other shapes such as humans and animals and mingling with that species. However, they are often too trusting and quick to make promises that they can't always keep as well as they would like to. They are keepers of the peace and would only attack someone if provoked and in self defense only.


Yellow Dragon - These dragons of the east typically live in deserts, mountains, or plains. They are very helpful when they need to be. However, they can be quite boastful and fickle at times.


Red Dragons - These southern fire dragons are very wise and courageous leaders, but there is a dark side to them. They are jealous and egotistical, sometimes to the point of hate. While not all of them are like this, it is quite common. They also represent fear, and war. They also represent passion, both good and foul.


Blue Dragons - Blues are dragons of the west. While those that live in the desert are enemies of the bronze, many of these dragons live near water or on high mountain tops. They are dragons of compassion, peace, forgiveness, love, intuition, and calmness. On the negative side, they are at times lazy and can have a lack of emotional control.

There are many other colours of dragons, but this is all that I have enough information on to post on this site. These descriptions relate to a general basis only and don't reflect each of them as individuals.


Dragon Types

Air - Air Dragons are the third rarest of the four types of Elemental Dragons. Members of this breed belong to a race of Draconic beings. At times join forces with the dragons of fire and volcanoes, seas and other waters, mountains and forests, and chaos. Sometimes there is conflict of elemental powers, producing great atmospheric and environmental disturbances, but mostly the elementals work in harmony.
Pros: Air dragons are never selfish, always putting other first. They are loyal to friends and very caring. Air dragons are never judgemental before getting to know someone and are very open minded and sincere. They are often quite beautiful in appearance.

Cons: Air Dragons are very shy but and often keep their thoughts to themselves. They are gullible and sometimes quite slow.


Earth Dragons - Earth Dragons are very placid and wise, snakelike creatures. While these dragons are very judgemental, this can be helpful if you want to learn something about yourself. While in an earth dragons circle of judgement, the dragon will judge you or anyone who wishes to be judged. In this way they assist dragons of justice. As infants, earth dragons are often sent to act as guardians of the humans. Like humans, their parents never abandon them completely and encourage them to lead their own lives. They are also the most common of all the elemental dragons.
Pros: Mentally, they are very powerful and down to earth.
Cons: They think they are supreme to others, and can be quite cynical and rude.


Fire Dragons - Although Fire Dragons are not evil, they have short fuses and can be quite fierce when angered. They are impatient of beginners in the field of dragon magick and won't participate at all unless they feal the person is of equal power. However, if you can prove yourself worthy then fire dragons are very loyal friends despite their arrogance. Fire dragons keep to themselves and don't usually circle with others and only lives with mates for they are quite cruel even to their own species. They are very competitive and territorial and hates any being that has a chance of overpowering it. They are the bullies of the dragon world but when they have a cause, they stick to it with an iron code.
Pros: They are experts in the field of combat and are the most physically powerful of the elemental dragons. They are honest and courageous.
Cons: They are very proud and think very low of others.


Water Dragons - These serpent-like creatures are helpful when it comes to emotions, whether its calming them or tearing down a barrier a stubborn human has put up. They represent calmness under all circumstance and keep events moving in a fluid manner. They can help us break free of our psychic vampires that control our emotions as well. These dragons have actually been sited in the physical world by many. One such famous dragon is the lock-ness monster. Although there are a select few that see others such as black dragons, air dragons and even a few fire dragons, water dragons are the most well documented of having taken residents in this plane of reality.
Pros: They are often the most beautiful and most magickally advanced.
Cons: They are VERY stubborn and at times snobby.


Chaos Dragons - While their title may create an image of evil and hate, these dragons represent something very different. While it is true they represent chaos, they represent chaos that is neccessary to resolve problems in which order and reasoning cannot. An example of this is when a nation overthrows a tyrant. They cannot reason with him, so chaos and force is neccessary. When working with them, they will go past your command and straight to the source of your problem so MAKE SURE YOU ARE PREPARED TO HARNESS THEIR POWER!
