Next to nothing is known of the dragons, other than the fact that they're one of the single most dangerous species on the continent. The only reason that they haven't wiped all life from existence is because... Well, they really don't want to. There are three kinds of dragons in the land: Fire, ice, and sky. Fire dragons can obviously breathe fire, while ice dragons can expel a frosty breath that's just as deadly. Sky dragons, on the other hand, are smaller and seem to be able to fly faster and farther than their counterparts.
Dragons, in their proper form, can't speak in words that any of the primary races can understand. However, they possess the ability to project illusions of bipedal species, giving them the ability to communicate with lesser beings. Additionally, they will occasionally select individuals (usually humans) to serve as emissaries between themselves and civilization, which allows them to negotiate treaties and set borders without upsetting people as much. At present, dragons typically live in one of two areas: The Scorched Lands and the Frostingar Tundra. While it would make sense for the ice dragons to live in the tundra and the fire dragons to live in the Scorched Lands, the reality is that all forms of dragons can survive in both environments. That said, traveling from one end of the continent to the other requires a signed form from several different nations, without which extreme force is often used to stop the pillaging beasts...
Size: - Varies with age. The eldest dragons have been reported as being over a thousand feet long, though it is unknown if this is an exaggeration. In any event, the dragons that most commonly visit humanity are often between fifty and one hundred feet in length.
Unusual Characteristics: - They're flying lizards that can cast illusions to talk to people.
Lifespan: - 1,000-2,000 years, though it's said that the oldest dragon saw the formation of the world well over five thousand years ago.
Magic: - Illusion and breath attacks are the most commonly seen, but the dragon emissaries claim that the dragons can perform even greater feats, displays of magic that could rip the world apart if they were so inclined.
Worshiped gods: - Unknown, though the dragons do have some sort of established connection with Sorosin, deity of the aqahartis.
Other notes: - With the dragons being the fiercest creatures known, a small group has been founded to help combat their rise. Known as the Dragon Hunters, initiates must complete training at all five of the major academies across the continent (the wizarding academy in Distisil, the warrior academy in Istinis, the natural academy in Elsinor and Delsinar, and the undead academy and voice academy in Tifingor), then complete a final course at the Hunter Academy in Sintison. Training usually takes well over two decades, and is often only completed by those with divine powers, such as warlocks or demigods. - It is thought that the dragons come from another plane of existence, one that was destroyed by unknown forces. This would explain their reluctance to claim a more dominant place in the world, as they likely know the results of such large-scale wars.
