Blue Dragon

Home / Bestiary / Draconica / Dragon / Chromatic Dragon / Blue Dragon
Blue dragons are an unusual sub-species of chromatic dragons in that they keep fairly well-ordered, hierarchical societies. They are manipulative rather than outright cruel or murderous towards mortals.

Basic Information


Blue dragons are physically identifiable by a single large, yellowish horn protruding from their heads. Their ears are rather large and frill. The tail is thick and bumpy, resembling that of a crocodile. The wings are more pronounced than in most other species. Guests, and survivors, of meetings with blue dragons report the a smell of smoldering wood mixed with an earthy odor.

Ecology and Habitats

Blue dragons are native to arid wastelands and deserts, similarly to brass dragons who are both their adversaries and favorite prey. They make their lairs in underground caves that are easily accessible to them as they can burrow through the ground.   The typical blue dragon lair is dug into a towering rock formation or under a gigantic dune. As with all dragon lairs, the blue dragon's lair would have two or more entrances: one at ground level and hidden by the sand, and one opening onto a high ledge or the top of the dune.   Lairs commonly have a large subterranean cavern with a large pool of water and a sandy beach, which its inhabitant would use for drinking and relaxation. Blue dragons dragons fly above their territory, using the bleak landscape and its sparse terrain features as their best chance of spotting opponents.

Additional Information

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

They posses a natural talent for illusions and hallucination and are infamous for tricking desert travelers into eating rocks, drinking sand or going miles out of their way to avoid nonexistent dangers. They are especially notorious for their ability of exhale a streak lightning and for creating large electrical discharges, usually when passing over caravans, killing most animals and living the survivors injured and stranded in the desert.
