Dragon Draco Drekar

The Chinese Dragon, or Lóng
Asian dragons are long serpent like creatures which possess
the scales and tail of a carp,
horns of a deer,
the face of a camel,
feet of a tiger and
talons of an eagle,
the body of a snake,
a feathery mane,
ears of a bull,
large eyes of a demon,
and can be holding a flaming pearl under its chin to control lightning.
They usually have no wings. Chinese dragons are occasionally depicted with bat-like wings growing out of the front limbs.
The dragons were bringers of rain and lived in and governed bodies of water. They were benevolent but bossy.



European dragons are serpentine legendary winged creatures, flaming red, with seven heads and ten horns.

Slavic dragons hold mixed temperaments towards humans.
The female dragon represents harsh weather and is the destroyer of crops, the hater of mankind.
The male dragon protects the humans' crops from destruction and is generally loving to humanity.
It is generally an evil,
four-legged beast
from one to seven or sometimes even more heads.
The heads also regrow if cut off, unless the neck is "treated" with fire.
Dragon blood is so poisonous that Earth itself will refuse to absorb it.
They are creatures with few if any redeeming qualities, intelligent, but not very highly so; they often place tribute on villages or small towns, demanding maidens for food, or gold.
