Dragons are a race of sapient creatures living in every continent of Dawn, usually as high predators, although Dragons have become quite rare. They are commonly confused with Wyverns, their two legged cousin.
Note: This is a description of most dragon-kind. All dragons are different in size, shape, and more; however most dragons followe this description.
Most dragons have the same body build: a flat body with four or rarely, more, limbs, usually used primarily as legs. Behind these legs sprouts a long tail, often with protective spines. Up front the body, a high neck developes and rises our, where a head stands. Dragons usually have some form of spikes, horns, or other decorative/useful form of weaponry. Now down back to the main body, two, in most cases, wings jut out from the body, providing the dragon with its main form of transportation. Dragons seem to be very well built, capable of taking down large foes, but that's not all. Dragons have large claws on all limbs and usually have massive, razor sharp teeth. They are also quite a large size, the smallest being around 6 feet long on all fours, while some have been reported to be hundreds of feet long.
Although 90% cannot speak, most dragons are capable of some form of magic. This magic is often heard to us as deep roars and low growls, as it is spoken in Dragon Tongue, which can access the normal words of common magic.
Some dragons (around 25%) speak Dragon Tongue, a language that is said using a complex mixture of deep roars and low growls. Common Magic is also spoken in a slightly different version in this language.
A rare percentage of dragons are capable of learning other languages.
