Storm Dragons are the Kyamese variation of Dragonkin, renowned for their speed and agility in flight rivaled only by their elegance and grace.
Storm Dragons have long serpentine bodies covered in blue-silver scales. They have a tuft of white fur located at the end of their tails and a matching mane around their neck and jawline, resembling a beard. The head of a Storm Dragon vaguely resembles that of a crocodile with a relatively short pair of deer-like horns on the side.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Storm Dragons have been observed to be able to avoid lightening strikes while flying through storms.
