Purebred wind dragons can inhabit almost any environment—from the chilly arctic to the tropical beaches to the desert wasteland. Average chicks are as big as a turkey and adults have a wingspan of roughly 10 meters. Their bones are hollow and they are covered in aerodynamic feathers, giving them the greatest flying ability among all dragons. They are capable of carrying one to two riders in adulthood. They display their crest feathers when they are amused or upset. Their tails are long with flat feathers that aid in steering. While they are not as acrobatic as storm or fire dragons, they are capable of flying vast distances for extended time periods.

Wind dragons seek out Riders who exhibit honesty, honor, and creativity. Riders who exemplify integrity are given a high rank in the wind dragon hierarchy and imparted greater power by their dragon. Wind Riders are very intuitive and can recognize the strength and abilities of those around them. Their instincts as a whole become acutely honed towards others, making them excellent leaders, diplomats, and commanders.
Preferred Rider Attributes:
- Enjoys Literature, Poetry, Song, or other Art
Wind dragons have a surprisingly small effect on the element they are named after. They can move the wind to a certain extent to make flight easier, but they can’t quite conjure up clouds like a Storm dragon can. Instead, their power lies in boosting the strength of others. They enhance the magic of all allied dragons around them. They can deflect attacks with ease. They can fly far higher than any other dragon and require less oxygen to do so. Their Riders and, once they master their magic, their allies can manifest wings of their own regardless of their race. If wings aren’t their thing, levitation serves them just as well.
Perhaps their true talent lies in their voice. They can speak the tongue of all sentient creatures, allowing them to communicate across all language barriers. They may not understand the specifics of a culture, but they can make themselves understood. They can weave their spells into intricate songs that either boost the strength of their allies or strikes fear into the foes unfortunate enough to hear the siren song. Not only are they exceptionally good at seeing the qualities in others, but they are also excellent at seeing in general. Their attacks are incredibly accurate and advanced magic users can see for miles.
On top of the general Tier IV magic effects, your dragon can have these traits. This is only available to dragons with Tier IV Wind magic or Elemental Anomaly. Feel free to get creative and use things outside of this list.
