- From the Vellum of Visions, An Ode to the herald dragon:
Herald dragon, epoch sentry,
Omen of the aeons,
Usher forth the changing times,
O trumpeter of seasons.
When you soar across the skies,
Our spirits you revitalize.
- —Nogard's description of the Herald Dragon in The Book of Dragons
The herald dragon reminds most of an eagle: a long, light yellow, aerodynamic body and two paws with sharp , silver claws, a beak-shaped mouth on its head and two huge wings with blue feathers. On top of that, it wears what appears to be a silver helmet; but in reality they are a special kind of scale.
Herald dragons are very strong and can carry creatures double as heavy as themselves with their leg claws without any problem, and heavier often just results in some slower flying.
