This article is about the creature. For the Dragon named Dragon, see Darastrix.
A Dragon is a creature whose shape mimics various draconic factions, gods, and powers—a form that seems to originate from Quelmar's Prehistory, or even earlier.
Dragons were considered extinct several times in Quelmar, only for them to come back again. Dragons worshiped various gods and were categorized not just by their external colors and shapes, but also their own moral compasses. Generally speaking, Chromatic Dragons were nastier and followed Tiamat whereas Metallic Dragons were more benevolent and followed Bahamut.
Rarer than the Chromatics and Metallics, Planar and Gem Dragons came from other planes and worlds. They were rarely seen in Quelmar history until their presence exploded during the great Dragon watershed known as The War of Many Names, where Bahamut's return included the ushering of Dragons from all over the Great Wheel to come join the final fight against Tiamat.

BR Era[edit | edit source]
By the time Humans came to the realm proper, it was established that all of the realm's residents were familiar with the Metallic Dragons and Dragonkin of Bahamut. However, lurking in secret, even at the beginning of written history, were the Chromatic Dragons of Tiamat which lurked on the central island of Kiston.

Tiamat was known to employ swarms of Fairy Dragons to infiltrate caverns, tunnels, vaults, and other hard-to-reach places.
