The Yellow dragon or 'Animalia Chordata Xenosauria Squamadraco Occidentidae Tetrapa Draconis Flavo' is a solitary and secretive dragons who prefer to lay in wait for prey to stumble into carefully prepared traps instead of hunting actively. They are among the most agile and quick of all dragons. Their breath weapon is a watery blast that contains a corrosive sodium compound. They adore water and will play in it.

Yellow dragons are the physically weakest of the chromatic dragons.  However, they are by far the fastest in terms of flying and swimming speeds. While other dragons may rely on physical might, the yellow dragon knows that its speed is the key to defeating its foes. Despite their physical weakness the yellow dragon is a frustrating opponent for another dragon, as it can easily avoid the claw, fangs and even breath weapons of its rivals.

They are such self-centered creatures that they speak their own tongue, and can barely be bothered to use telepathy, learn draconic or any other language unless it directly suits their interests.  This makes dealing with them especially difficult, even for other dragons.  However, yellow dragons are generally despised by the rest of dragon-kind, especially bronze dragons, so it is unlikely another dragon will want anything to do with a yellow dragon beyond attempting to kill it on sight.

One reason yellow dragons are so despised is due to their selfishness leading them to often work against their own kind during the Thousand Year War, working for the giants in exchange for treasure.  Another reason is that yellow dragons will steal and devour the eggs of bronze dragons; a vile taboo among all dragon-kind who view it as cannibalism.

Scholar speculate that should a yellow dragon breed with a blue dragon, their progeny would be a green dragon.  While most might dismiss such a theory, it isn't as outrageous as it first appears.  A yellow dragon's preferred environment could very easily bring it face to face with a blue dragon, and interestingly enough, a yellow dragon is immune to lightning damage.


Yellow dragons have a lithe, serpentine body covered in white-flecked yellow scales.  Their scales change little throughout their lives, remaining an iridescent yellow color with a bluish shine in the light along the scales of their underbellies, although their colors do lose some of their vibrancy with age.  Its head is narrow and snake-like, with emerald eyes.  Their long forked tongue that flickers out from between its fanged jaws. A frill of quill-like spikes runs along its back from between its horns to the tip of its tail. Usually, these spike lie flat against the dragon's body.  When the dragon is agitated, or attempting to make itself look more impressive, they stand erect.  Among all dragon-kind, they have the one of most distinctive and easily recognized odors; the scent of salt.


Yellow dragons are just as at-home in the water as they are in the air.  They will live anywhere with open sky or open waters, preferably with high concentrations of salt, which the dragon consumes to supplement its diet.  Water is by far their favorite element; specifically along coasts or near salt lakes, but they can also be found living in desert salt flats.  If possible, a dragon will construct its lair underwater.  Otherwise, they prefer to build burrows in sand, which they prevent from collapsing in on itself by encrusting the walls in salt.
