- It has been said to never enter a staring contest with a lightning dragon. The calm and piercing eyes of the wraith dragon give their lightning dragon cousins the shivers.
- —Nogard's description of the wraith dragon in The Book of Dragons
This ethereal dragon seems to have an evil smile, but in fact their faces are naturally shaped that way. Their black hide would make you think they are adapted to hide in the dark, but their glowing eyes and wings make it way too obvious-even during the day. They have a beard of black topaz, which is strange, knowing there exists no such thing as natural black topaz.
Their topaz beard may be a formidable weapon, but if you stare into a wraith dragon's eyes you immediately become so frightened that you can't move a muscle. Its glare is its main weapon.
Behavior and Personality
Relationship to Wizards
Due to their piercing glare, many wizards are too frightened to observe this dragon as one glance send them into a total shutdown of the muscles and brain as if hit with a freezing spell. More experienced wizards will set a magic probe to record the dragons and write down the data later. The Burcadians believed that the wraith dragon gave anyone caught in its glare infinite knowledge, but humans weren't capable of this omniscience.
