Dragons are powerful reptillian creatures that come in many varieties. The most well known to Western culture is the classical European dragon: an aligator-like body with a long neck and tail, and large bat-like wings. While most Eastern dragons are beneign, Western dragons are generally harmful predators.


Western dragons can be broken into the following categories:

  • Wyrm (or Worm) - Serpentine dragons, generally with a long snake body and crocodile-like head. Examples include Apep and the Lambton Worm.
  • Classical European - A crocodile-like body with a long neck and tail, and large bat-like wings.
  • Wyvern - Similar to the above, the wyvern has a crocodile-like body, long head and tail, but with bat-like wings in place of its arms. Commonly used in heraldry.
