The mighty Dragons of lore are one of many races present in these lands. The Metallic colored dragons, stereotypically known to be good and kind creatures prefer to hoard knowledge and books over petty trinkets and gold. Many of them are secluded away from civilization but have been known to come down from their caves and mingle with what they consider lesser beings.
Long-lived and with thick hide, these creatures are usually long-lived indeed. In addition they have access to a breath weapon.
Though they would never admit it, their pride is their biggest weakness. Even the good dragons are overprotective of their hoard.
