Dragons are legendary creatures, typically with serpentine or otherwise reptilian traits, that feature in the myths of many cultures.

There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan, Korea and other Asian countries.

The traditional European dragon is a large reptilian creature with wings who lives in underground caves filled with treasure. They can breathe fire.

Chinese dragons are more serpentine in shape who possess
