- The first acid dragon brought into the Vale was carried snugly in the jacket of the explorer Ellen O'Mortson, who found the egg in the derelict buildings of Geegur. This tiny dragon got an undeserved reputation for terror, when it hatched right through his jacket and onto the banquet table at O'Mortson's homecoming feast. That story still gets ripples of laughter.
- —Nogard's description of the acid dragon in The Book of Dragons
The acid dragon is a dark green, with a bright, pastel-green underbelly and wing membranes. Instead of eyes, it has light-green eyespots. There are also 5 spots on either side of the dragon's elongated domed head, and three spots on each leg. Hardened plates protrude from its spine, mostly visible on its back reaching at the way down to its tail. The tip of it's tail has a pointed metal blade used to slice open prey and predator alike. Two pairs of hardened growths protrude from its cheek, and it has two small chin spikes. It has 3 toes topped with dull gray claws on each foot.
Xeno Acid Dragon
This variant is the most common and held in parks. It has a dark green color.
Sour Acid Dragon
This variant is very different and has a pink color. Its acid is not as potent and you can even eat small amounts without much harm, although it apparently tastes disgusting.
Toxin Acid Dragon
The rarest variant. It has a purple color and its whole skin is covered in potent acid that may melt your hand if you even touch it. This variant has stronger magical powers to protect itself from its own acid.
Their fangs, claws and tail blade are not only deadly sharp but also are covered in a thin layer of acid making all of their attacks corrosive.
Its skin is extremely tough, impenetrable to almost anything found in the Vale. Its back plates also defend it from spinal attacks.
It can live in almost any environment, even the vacuum of space for a short time. It can sense prey through Electromancy.
Acid dragons breathe a dark gas which is extremely acidic and can corrode nearly anything.
It's blood is highly acidic, and if you manage to make it bleed there's a chance that it's blood can kill it from within, although it's highly unlikely. Otherwise, decapitation is the best way to go.
They latch to an animal larger than itself and slowly drain it dry.
Behavior and Personality
Relationship to Wizards
The first acid dragon was discovered by Ellen O'Mortson, a young wizard who was exploring the ancient and ruined temples of Geegur. O'Mortson, upon returning from his exploration trip, had the egg hatch inside his jacket and onto O'Mortson's feast. O'Mortson dedicated his work to the study of acid dragons, along with the help of the newborn acid dragon, Weaver.
Origin of Name
The acid dragon gets its name from the acidic properties of its saliva and blood.
