For years explorers were afraid to enter the Tull Caverns because of the loud noises that could be heard coming from deep below. It's only thanks to the brave Dickinson Osborne that we now know that these sounds come from the metal dragon's unique behavior of "drumming" precious metals with their heavy tails.
    —Nogard's description of the metal dragon in The Book of Dragons

The Metal Dragon is a primary dragon of the Metal element.

Abilities

Weapons

The large block of metal at the end of a metal dragon's tail is used to scare off predators and fight rivals (in addition to making music, that is.) In adult metal dragons, it can weigh up to 100 pounds. It has fearsome metal horns and terrifying strength, and its claws are razor sharp.

Defenses

Its skin is thick and hard to penetrate.

Other Abilities

Metal dragons make noise by drumming precious metals with their tails. This is believed to be a form of communication called "clangtalk", but it is too complex for wizards to learn.

Breath Weapon

Metal dragons breathe a stream of shrapnel produced in the same way as their metal spikes--by eating metal and ore. These sharp metal shards can cause serious injury at close range.

Weaknesses

Metal dragons can easily be located with a metal detection spell. They are heavy, so they move slowly and sink very quickly in water. If they cannot access ore to eat, they cannot grow their dangerous spikes.

Habitat

Regions

Metal dragons live in and near the Tull Caverns, and other places with lots of metal and ore.

Preferred Home

Metal dragons once lived underground almost always, but when wizards began mining metal and building things from it, some moved above ground as metal was easier to find.

Sheltering/Nesting

Not much is known about the underground metal dragon societies.

Lifestyle

Behavior and Personality

Metal dragons can be gruff and stubborn, but are also loyal and helpful. They are among the only dragons to have an appreciation for music and can be often be found dancing to a genre of rock wizards invented of music called heavy metal.

Social Order

Metal dragons are quite social. They do not have leaders, but the oldest metal dragons are the strongest and wisest, and usually give the orders. They like to make noise by banging on metal with their tails, which is how they talk to other metal dragons. They can relay messages like this quickly.

Relationship to Wizards

Metal dragons were the last primary dragon discovered (besides Light and Dark), mostly because of their secretive ways. They tend to be suspicious of humans and stayed deep underground for a long time, but now they are less shy.

Breeding

Metal dragon can be bred from two metal dragons or a metal dragon or a plant dragon to a malachite, ironwood, thorn, or iron blossom dragon.

Habitats

Metal dragons can be placed in either Metal habitats or Omnitats.
