- Legend has it that Sidd Arthur, a privileged nobleman turn wandering wizard, once rested under the wings of a lotus dragon. Upon awakening, Sidd was famished. Having no food, he attempted to transmute some local wild flowers into a snack. Sadly, the result was unpalatable. To his surprise, though, the lotus dragon snapped them up! Thus, Dragon Snaps were invented!
- —Nogard's description of the lotus dragon in The Book of Dragons
The tail of the lotus dragon can spray a yellow gas that temporarily stuns those hit.
The flowers and skin of the lotus dragon have paralytic properties when eaten, so it has few predators, except those who have learned how to pull of the skin before eating the flesh.
Lotus dragons live in places full of plant growth, preferably with some water too. Most of them live near Nes Lake and Lake Kes, but there are also some on small islands in The Crimson Sea and near the lake in The Great Forest. Occasional individuals are also seen in the Drag Marshes.
Lotus dragons prefer to stay near or in water.
