Ocean (Basic)

Category: Element


Purebred ocean dragons are entirely aquatic and all of them are able to breathe in water and enjoy an underwater life. If they have legs, they tend to be small and stubby compared to their eel-like bodies. Flippers or fins are far more common. Their snouts are quite diverse, ranging from snake-like to shark-like and all sorts of appearances in between. Typical ocean dragons are the size of orca whales, though they are also seen at sizes up to 30 meters long. These leviathans rival or match the size of Earth dragons.

Free Trait: Gilled
Default Physical Traits:


Ocean dragons seek out those who exhibit dedication, compassion, or love. The larger they get, the more power they can impart to their Riders. Most riders will gain the ability to sense oncoming storms or bad water conditions. Larger dragons can impart a better lung capacity for water diving. The largest dragons can impart advanced prescience, convert their Rider’s lungs to a gill-like system, and grant them the ability to withstand a wide range of pressure. These Ocean Riders are referred to as leviathan riders and many of them take up an aquatic lifestyle if they do not already have one. They are quite capable of telepathy to keep in touch with land dwellers.

Preferred Rider Attributes:

  • Compassionate
  • Religious
  • Emotional
  • Dramatic
  • Empathetic
  • Fierce
  • Dedicated
  • Loving
  • Intuitive
  • Instinctive
  • Sensitive
  • History nerd
  • Charitable
  • Daydreamer


Ocean magic is based less on the strength of the dragon and more on the strength of others. They can manipulate and generate the element of water with skill, of course, but they also support those around them both physically and mentally. They can directly assist their Riders and a few others by providing a bit of water breathing. In time, water breathing becomes a passive skill for their Rider. They can quickly melt into water and travel vast distances to carry messages or witness events. They excel in casting blessings and healing spells upon others. They can instantly heal their Riders or cast a spell that improves their health over time. If a person comes to them with a malady or curse, they can quickly dispel it.

At the same time, the magic of these dragons can be quite abstract. Ocean dragons with any level of magic will be able to sense catastrophe before it happens. The stronger a dragon is, the more clear that danger becomes, and the more time they have before it strikes. Masters of Ocean magic will be able to see visions of the future, even without catastrophe involved. They can project their soul across the vast ocean of space in order to witness events far from their bodies. They can calm others so well that they can induce a slumber, and from there, they can manipulate dreams. Dreamwalking allows them to more clearly see the future of an individual, though the subject will generally notice if someone else is inhabiting their mind.

Ocean Display and Modifier Traits

The following traits are founded in the Ocean element, and thus have a better chance of passing to offspring:

Shark | Koi | Marbled | Marked | Ripple | Blanket | Orca | Spotted
Torrent | Capricorn | Tentacles | Many-finned | Pelvic Fins | Dorsal Fin | Gilled

They are equally compatible with these Earth and Storm traits:

Wild | Crackle | Sandstone | Skunk | Tobiano | Brindle | Fawn Spots | Underbelly
Jeweled | Brawn | Neckfrill | Fanged | Protofeathers | Club Tail | Maned
Somatic | Frost | Vampire | Mist | Pollen | Hailstorm | Panda | Striped
Avalanche | Debris | Split Tail | Bumble | Tailless | Odd Ears | Webbed Tail


However, they are incompatible with Light Traits, and the following traits have a reduced pass rate. Ocean semi-customs and Ocean SC cross breeds have the rarity of these traits increased by two:

Flaunt | Zebra | Roan | Faded | Rabicano | Suntouched | Pangare | Appaloosa
Radiance | Spectrum | Star Pearl | Iridescence | Bioluminescence | Bearded | Heraldry
