Dragons are immense, powerful, winged reptilian creatures, created from proto-dragons by the Titans to safeguard the world of Azeroth millennia ago. They are divided into several types called dragonflights. Since the fall of Deathwing, they have lost their titan-given powers as well as the ability to reproduce. They still remain powerful sorcerers however.
The proto-dragons were the ancestors of dragons before they evolved into the sapient, beautiful majestic creatures that they are known as today. Brann Bronzebeard recently uncovered evidence, corroborated by reports from adventurers in Deepholm, that proto-dragons and dragons may have originated from elemental drakes (i.e, stone dragons and storm dragons). Dragons share a common ancestry with both gryphons and wyverns, but it is unknown how far back they diverged.
Galakrond, a massive proto-dragon, is known as the “progenitor of dragonkind.” It is said that it is from Galakrond the titans created the Aspects, but this is a rumor the Aspects actively encouraged so as to keep the truth about Galakrond a secret from the dragonflights.
At one time, their numbers were uncountable, but in present-day Azeroth there are very few left. Originally, there were many different dragonflights, with many different colors to be seen. The five most influential, however, were the reds, the greens, the bronze, the blacks, and the blues, and eventually most (if not all) of the other flights disappeared.
Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram,anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.
