Draconic Species in Dearc | World Anvil


Draconics were created by the two draconic gods Bahamut and Tiamat.
It is a rather big family including various creatures ranging from beast-like to humanoid. The family of Draconics is segmented into different subfamilies.   There are six different subfamilies of draconics, which differ from one another regarding various traits.
The six subfamilies include Dragons, Wyverns, Amphitheres, Wyrms, Lindwurms and Drakes.
Dragons have four legs and wings. The only species in the Draconic family, that are Dragons are the Chromatic and Metallic Dragons, also called True Dragons for that reason. Moreover they are the only Draconics that continiously grow in power the older they get. A True Dragon therefore is strongest at the moment of their death.
Wyverns are creatures with two hind legs and wings, that function as forelegs as well. Wyverns are mostly Naturalistic Draconics or Pseudodragons.
Amphitheres look very close to Wyverns, they do not possess hind legs, however. Amphithers are commonly Naturalistics, but can also be found among Pseudodragons.
Wyrms are the closest to resembling snakes, with a long limbless body that tapers off into a sting.
Lindwurms and Wyrms are not only quite similar to each other, with the main difference being the number of limbs, but they are also rather closely related. Lindwurms, in comparison to Wyrms, have two front legs.
Drakes tend to have shorter bodies, than Wyrms and Lindwurms, and four legs. They could also be described as Dragons without wings.

Basic Information

Growth Rate & Stages

There are certain stages in life every Draconic reaches.
The first stage is the Hatchling stage after hatching from the egg. Wyrmlings are the equivalent of toddlers: gawky, clumsy and extremely bad at surviving on their own.
After being a Hatchling, a Draconic reaches its second stage of life. It becomes a Youngling, curious and inquisitive about everything surrounding it. Youngling Draconics are the most likely to wander around far from their originating territory. A Youngling also has to survive on their own and out of their parents care.
Most Draconics that are encountered or kept as a working force are Adult Draconics. These are less curious than there younger counterparts, but still enjoy wandering around to investigate and discover parts of their territory or new areas, especially the more intelligent specimen.
The last stage in a Dragons life is being an Ancient Dragon. This stage, however, is only really existent in the Metallic and Chromatic Dragons. Ancient Dragons are knowledgeable and far more peaceful than Adult ones. This stage in their life, however, is only reached by very few individuals.
Although this is true for most members of the Draconic family there are few (further removed) exceptions.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Draconics usually prefer being alone and dislike living together with a big group of other creatures, whether it's other draconics, animals or humans. They nevertheless still enjoy the interaction, when they have the possibility to withdraw and have personal space afterwards. This trait might not be of importance for wild draconics, it is, however, a problem for tamed draconics, especially if they are kept as a working force.


Draconics are hard to domesticate and it took centuries to somewhat succeed on this. Although there are a few draconics that can be tamed, such as Naturalistic and Pseudodragons, the Metallic and Chromatic Dragons will surely never be tamed (and would definitely kill you if you'd try), for they are powerful and highly intelligent creatures, that can live longer than some nations exist.
The main problem with the progress of domestication was the solitariness of draconics. It was successfully bred out of especially Naturalistic Draconics, but sometimes still shines through in some draconics.

Average Intelligence

The average intelligence differs widely from species to species. There are highly intelligent century-old dragons, that speak multiple languages, as well as draconics, which are comparable to dogs or cats regarding their intelligence. Especially the draconics used as working beasts are bred to be less intelligent than their wild kindred.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Members of the Draconic family have really good senses. Especially their hearing and smell are excellent.
They're basically magical lizards.
