Scientific Name

Draco terra

Characteristics

The Earth Dragon’s status as the world incarnate is evident on its body: Its wings contain the stars, its horns are tree branches, its scales are leaves, its spines are waves, and its legs are gnarled trunks.

History

The Earth Dragon is most often seen when a great threat arises to the natural environment. Though it is typically a benevolent spirit, this dragon is quite formidable and is known to defend the natural flora and fauna of a region with unmatched fierceness.

When it is seen, which is rare, it typically arises from the ground, and exits by taking to the night sky, rising up and up until the blue of its wings becomes lost in the starry night sky.

Present Status

It is thought that this Dragon was born at the same time as the Earth, appointed as its representative symbol and protector. Though it has not been seen in ages, it is thought that it still slumbers deep within the earth, conserving its strength and awaiting the next time it will be called upon to defend the natural world.
