- The first mythical moon dragon was so enchanting that the first sun dragon created the world and stars for the two of them to share. But their magic was so strong that they had to separate themselves or risk destroying everything. Legend claims that they became the sun and moon and their descendants now live in our world.
- —Nogard's description of the moon dragon in The Book of Dragons
The moon dragon is a sparkling silver, with stars on its body, and a crescent moon its tail. Its eyes are enchanting and may give us a look to galaxies farther away than we will ever see. The full moon-shaped scale on its neck emits light and cosmic radiation, but also emits an aura of calmness. Looking at the moon dragon is just captivating.
Luna Moon Dragon
This is the variant found on our planets and on our moon.
Europa Moon Dragon
This variant lives on Jupiter and its many moons, but mostly Europa. It has a blubber layer to adapt to the cold and has a more bluish color. Discovered with the Wubble Telescope.
Titan Moon Dragon
This variant is also not found on our planet, but instead on Saturn and its moon Titan. Has a green color and is very skilled at flying. It is slightly bigger than our moon dragon, but not of titanic size, as its name would imply. Also discovered with the Wubble Telescope.
Moon dragons are not equipped for battle since they only fight in extreme circumstances. Their breath is the closest that comes to a weapon, and is harmful specifically to Omen Dragons, who tend to attack moon dragons for some reason.
A lot of creatures never attack moon dragons because they would feel guilty afterward for hurting or even killing such a beautiful creature.
A moon dragon's breath causes a weird mist, but is not harmful. A notable exception is the Omen dragon: since these dragons tend to like attacking moon dragons, the moondragon developed their magic breath to be harmful against these dragons--and only omen dragons.
Moon dragons are not built or equipped for fighting at all.
When a moon dragon is on the moon, they do not build nests. However, on the earth, too much sunlight is unhealthy for them, so they are nocturnal and burrow under the ground during the day.
While on the moon, moon dragons feed on rocks. While in the Vale, however, they must eat Moonlace, a plant which can only grow and blossoms during the night.
Behavior and Personality
Moon dragons are solitary, except when taking care of an infant.
Relationship to Wizards
Moon dragons are shy and avoid contact with wizards. They thus pose no threat and are ranked by the DDLA as level 1.

How to care for
Moon dragon eggs cannot grow properly in oxygen. When a moon dragon finds a mate, the couple will journey to the moon to take care of their egg.
Infant moon dragons lungs are not yet evolved for breathing oxygen, so the family stays on the moon.
When a moon dragon is juvenile, he or she can breathe oxygen. The family will travel back to Earth at this point, but the adolescent will not leave its parents until it is an adult.
