- While experimenting with lightning magic, three wizard brothers from the Stater family attracted the attention of an electrum dragon. Shocked at the discovery of a new Treasure dragon, they quickly dispatched in all directions to inform everyone of this new, epic breed.
- —Nogard's description of the electrum dragon in The Book of Dragons
The electrum dragon has some truly dangerous weapons. Its large horns are used mainly for dueling rivals, but the axe-like blades on the end of its tail can chop through a fully grown tree with a single blow.
The spikes on the electrum dragon's back protect it from aerial attacks. Its scales, though not nearly as thick as the gold dragon's, also protect it.
Electrum dragons are excellent fliers, though comparatively clumsy on the ground. They also are pretty good swimmers.
Having Lightning and Metal elements as its primary elements, it seems unlikely that it eats fish, but with its long neck, crocodile like jaws, and straight teeth, it seems they are. We now know that they catch their food on the wing, skimming the surface.
Behavior and Personality
Relationship to Wizards
It was once thought they were hybrids of gold and silver dragons. This idea made sense at first, since silver and gold dragons are seen around each other, had common ancestors, and the fact that electrum is made of gold and silver. However, when the three Stater Brothers found it officially when using lightning magic in an experiment, it was confirmed that it had lightning and metal in it.
