- The steel dragon likes to parade back and forth showing off its fearsome horns. As other dragons pass, the steel dragon will turn over its right shoulder to flash a cold, steely gaze, stopping them in their tracks. It is a matter of curiosity that no steel dragon has ever been observed to turn left before flashing its gaze.
- —Nogard's description of the steel dragon in The Book of Dragons
Steel dragons have powerful steel horns and claws, and fearsome (non-metallic) teeth.
It's metallic scale are light enough for flight but strong enough to stop a ballista bolt.
The steel dragon can flash a cold, steely gaze capable of stopping any creature that crosses it's path, even the blind Sandaran Giant Worms, though they may rarely meet one of these reptiles. It has be recorded that the dragon always turn to the right before using this but it will never do this if it turns to the left.
Steel dragons are proud, but often overconfident. A dragon even taunting at a steel dragon is oftenly immediately attacked, even if the steel dragon doesn't stand a chance.
