Purebred fire dragons are most similar to classical Western dragons. They have four feet, leather bat-like wings, hard scales, and frequently have lines of spikes and horns. Their wings are long and large, and their silhouette during flight is rectangular. They do not practice any type of camouflage, as their natural environment is usually full of smoke. Their long necks, tails, and wings can be deceitful, since they are very light. They have a gland that produces volatile gasses they can release at will, generating their fire breath in an instant.

Fire dragons are bold, brash, temperamental, and independent. They seek out Riders that are filled with feelings of frustration, anger, vengeance, fear, and other powerful negative emotions. They can sense such emotions from other creatures and alert their Rider to any danger. When fire dragons form a bond with their Rider, their Riders gradually learn to use their emotions as a type of fuel that can propel them through tense situations, rather than something that they fester over. Fear turns to bravery, anger turns to understanding, and frustration turns to motivation. Of course, flare ups of negative behavior are still expected. Those who are well aligned with their dragons can manipulate flames.
Preferred Rider Attributes:
- Sense of Justice
They can breathe fire, naturally. They are capable of generating smoke, ash, and creating explosions with their own body as a fuel source. Conjuring fire out of thin air is child’s play for a fire dragon. Fire dragons can generate heat even without a fire, and when properly used, this can cause objects to ‘spontaneously’ combust. They are resistant to both extreme colds and intense heats. In battle, they give off an incredibly intimidating aura that can freeze their enemies through pure fear. Such intimidation won’t affect those who have done no wrong to the dragon.
