- Nobody is certain about what lies in the core of a star, but the Eridanian Dragon may be the closest we'll ever get. Noel dePlante thinks it's possible that the first dragons of this kind were formed in the sputtering embers of stars that burned out and fell to the ground. Perhaps this little one is giving us a glimpse into the beginning of time itself
- —Nogard's description of the eridanian dragon in The Book of Dragons
The eridanian dragon's skin is pure white, and it has a mane and wings of ethereal, glittery purple. It's a rather bulky dragon with a large head and almost no neck, and it has cloven hooves instead of ordinary dragon paws.
The eridanian dragon has no natural enemies, so it does not seem to have any weapons.
Since this dragon does not need to defend itself, it doesn't have any significant defenses. Baby dragons will bite if picked up by someone they don't recognize, though.
Eridanian dragons, like all galaxy dragons, have the ability to survive in the vacuum of space for their entire lives. They are able to tolerate extreme cold and survive without air or water through magic.
Eridanian dragons are gentle and mainly weapon-less, so if attacked their only defense is their breath weapon.
Eridanian dragons are found in outer space. They cannot survive on earth outside of a galaxy habitat for long.
Eridanian dragons usually live on white dwarf stars.
Nothing is known about how eridanian dragons nest in their natural habitat, or if they build nests.
Eridanian dragons subsist only on sunlight and starlight; they are photosynthetic.
Behavior and Personality
Eridanian dragons are bouncy, bubbly, cheerful and curious, unlike most Galaxy dragons.
Since they are so friendly, it is assumed that eridanian dragons are quite social in the wild, though social groups have never been observed.
Relationship to Wizards
Eridanian dragons exist in their outer space home mainly unaffected by earthbound wizards. DDLA has ranked them as 1 as it seems extremely unlikely that one will ever attack a wizard.
Eridanian dragons have an almost infinitely variable life span and do not seem to age once they reach adulthood, due to their time-warping magic, which enables interstellar travel in their species.
Eridanian dragons were discovered by a team of star-sailing wizards on an expedition into deep space, which was seeking to discover more unknown galaxy dragon species.
Origin of Name
Eridanian dragons' powerful galaxy magic enables them to travel at faster than the speed of light and not need air or water, instead drawing energy from starlight.
