- The paper dragon was found on the anniversary of the wizards discovering the magic that makes DragonVale possible. The paper dragon isn't actually made out of paper, but derives its name from its resemblance to paper dragons children make. Your guests are sure to do backflips with one of these in your park.
- —Nogard's description of the paper dragon in The Book of Dragons
The first thing you notice on a paper dragon, apart from its bright red color, is the unmistakable "B" on its wings. People have long guessed what the B could stand for. Some people speculate it stands for Burcadia. Others say it is just a coincidence that the markings look like a "B". Julian the Fair believes it stands for "backflip", but not many people support his theory.
Paper dragons can "unfold" themselves and their wings to become bigger and look more threatening. However, this does not increase the dragon's power--in fact, as the dragon is less compact when it does so, it has the opposite effect. The claws on a paper dragon's wings can inflict very painful cuts similar to paper cuts.
Paper dragons can fly with great skill, and can glide great distances. They are also lightweights, in the sense that even small children pick up fully grow adult with ease.
Heavy winds, or the breath of an Air element dragon, can easily send this dragon flying away.
