Dragons are an ancient species, that is both powerful and intelligent. Their anatomy is varied usually with wings, magical abilities, and a breath weapon. This race comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, from true dragons to dragon-touched. Dragons are feared for their predatory behavior, cunning and greed. Of course, not all dragons have these properties. Just like any other race, they can be of any alignment, with various qualities and abilities.
This depends on what variation of dragon it is. The majority have 4 legs and wings or 2 legs and wings, some even have no legs with or without wings.
The chromatic types of dragons are the most intelligent, longest-lived, and most powerful of all the dragons; these are also the first true dragons. The rest are their descendants, although not as powerful, they are still feared and awed by other races. On Aquatica most dragons are not big on hoarding treasure, of course, some evil ones do crave precious metals and gems.

Dietary Needs and Habits
