If you’d like to know more about dragons

Dragons come in many different shapes and sizes, and are originally mythical creatures that appeared in both European and Asian legends. Contrary to the kinds of wise dragons we find in many modern works of fiction, dragons in European legends were mostly thought to possess no more than animal-like intelligence. Nonetheless, they were feared by humans, giving rise to countless tales about brave knights facing these reptilian creatures.

European dragons

The European dragon is mostly depicted in modern fantasy fiction as a large, winged reptile. It appears in many different colors, walks on four legs, has near-impregnable scales and breathes fire. This kind of dragon is seen as the unofficial icon of fantasy storytelling, and appears in certain parts of Asian lore as well.

Chinese dragons

The Chinese dragon has no wings, is shaped like a snake and most often appears as a brightly-colored creature. Its exact origins are unclear, but the dragon is the highest ranking — and only mythical — animal in the Chinese calendar.
