- Surprisingly, famed fire magic expert Pi Roh was NOT the first wizard to discover the molten dragon. That honor belongs to metal magic expert Shi Nee, who was hovering over a magma flow one day while hunting for rare volcanic metals. Instead of rare metals, she found something even better: the molten dragon! Or, really, the molten dragon found her -- it sneezed and set her broomstick on fire. Whoops!
- —Nogard's description of the Molten Dragon in The Book of Dragons
The molten dragon's skin camouflages it against the lava flows it often wades in.
Its skin can produce a mucus that resembles molten metal, which is so hot it will not only protect the dragon from other dragon attacks, but also melt almost any other metallic object near it.
In colder temperatures, the mucus a molten dragon's skin produces hardens, preventing from the dragon to move.
They prefer to live in and near volcanoes.
Behavior and Personality
Relationship to Wizards
It is not wise for wizards to carelessly approach molten dragons, as the heat they produce--along with occasional flaming sneezes--can produce severe second-degree or even third-degree burns. The dragons themselves have no bad intentions though, unless you want to harm them--in which case they will spew lava at you.
DDLA has ranked them as 2.
