- Should you be lucky enough to breed an emerald dragon, you may notice they're imbued with a special magic from the Shimmering Isles. Small but powerful, the emerald dragon magically generates gems...making it, and other gemstone dragons, the most sought after dragons in all the land. Emerald dragons originate from the crystal forests hidden within the Sedna Mountains. Emerald dragons, like all gemstone dragons, cannot breed.
- —Nogard's description of the emerald dragon in The Book of Dragons
This bright green dragon is small, with tall emerald horns, an emerald chunk at the end of its tail, and iridescent transparent wings. The baby looks like a dragonfly, the adult like an adult ant lion.
Emerald dragons are very peaceful, but can use their emerald tails to fend off enemies if necessary. The horns are mainly for show.
Emerald dragons are well hidden in their crystal habitat, and can disappear into gaps in the berylline cacti in moments.
Emerald dragons are secretive, and only can be found in the deepest reaches of the crystal forests. They like to be sheltered by the crystal spines of the berylline cacti.
Emerald dragons do not build nests.
Like other gemstone dragons, emerald dragons eat only minerals, and need a very specific combination of minerals to survive.
