Slime Dragon[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Slime Dragons are winged reptilians of unknown lineage and mysterious powers. They are barely known, they do not have cunning wit and their greed is almost non existent. The oldest Slime Dragons are regarded as some of the most weirdest creatures in the world. Slime Dragons are magical creatures whose innate power gives them many preternatural abilities. Although their goals are unknown they have interesting ideals which can vary tremendously, all Slime Dragons covet riches and strive to accumulate piles of coins, gems, jewelry and magical items just to eat them, all in hope of recovering their Draconic magic that they lost long ago, legendary items is told to taste the best and so in theory a Slime Dragon will take them as a offering for their assistance. Slime Dragons with great mountains of treasure are hated by other Slime Dragons, they rarely venturing out of their dens to patrol and feed themselves. They can live for forever as long there is a part of it still left. From that age on, their strength becomes incomprehensible and their treasure heaps can grow unimaginably large.


History[edit]

In the beginning, when the world was at it darkest moment, when the Goddess of magic died, and magic was out of control, there in the steep frigged hills were a population of dragons that lived together in minor peace these dragons were the unlucky souls, as they were struck by a burst of magical energy from a rift in the sky, these dragons were killed instantly, there skin and muscles burned off, their bones chard but still strong, were the only things left, over time, a very old and not so wise necromancer came to these frigged hills, he saw these dead dragons and decided to bring them back as his slaves, these dragons were to be his army so that he could rule the lands, but as he was attempting to resurrect the dragons, another burst of magical energy appeared, as the necromancer brought the dragons back to life, the magical energy struck the dragons for its final time, the energy freed the dragons from the control of the necromancer, and turned the dragons into new creature born of magic, this is how the Slime Dragons were made, only 20 exist even though there are only few of them, they decided to make their new life last, they continued to live in a community, and have children, while also searching for ways to be turned back into their original form, or to at least die.

Society[edit]

Slime Dragons tend to be friendly and outgoing type creatures, though they stay in their community and guard their family and friends, some Slime Dragons will go on great adventures in humanoid shape. All Slime Dragons are unknown by most races and generally are cast out by towns and villages for the fear of them destroying everything even though the Slime Dragon has a outer protective shell that prevents any acid from destroying anything.

Slime Dragons are usually very friendly but not too smart, but their kindness is out matched, Slime Dragons are known to protect those who are in danger without bloodshed, even if they do not receive thanks, a Slime Dragon is at its happiest when its helping those who may give them food, Slime Dragons really love all kinds of food.
