The Dragons are large sentient reptiles capable of flight and a variety of breath weapons. Many are kings and queens of their homeworld, although not all. They are generally the largest of the Heroscape figures and are usually worth the most points. Dragons have no technology and use nothing but their own awesome strength and power in battle, enough to cause even the bravest warrior to cower. Most of the dragons come from Icaria and are available in one set each.
The Dragons of IcariaEdit
Fire Drakes are covetous, evil creatures, interested only in their own well-being, vanity and the extension of their treasure hoards. They are supremely confident of their own abilities and are prone to making snap decisions without any forethought. They delight in ruin, death, and destruction and breathe fire.
Fire Drakes are physically distinguished by their enormous size and wingspan. They have two large horns upon their heads, which point backwards toward their wings. They smell of smoke and sulfur. They make their homes in mountainous lairs. Many prefer to dwell in volcanoes, where the intense heat keeps others at bay. Fire Drakes love to make their lairs in deep, underground caves in mountainous regions, especially if there is volcanic activity. Fire Drakes are also highly territorial.
Two Fire Drakes have been summoned to Valhalla
Mimring is a Fire Drake capable of breathing fire. He is the worth the least point of the dragons. His bio indicates that Mimring is no mindless minion; he has a keen intelligence, and can communicate with surprising eloquence when it serves him. Mimring is affiliated with Utgar and comes in the Rise of the Valkyrie Master Set.
Zelrig is a Fire Drake capable of raining down great fireballs upon his enemies, that are especially effective against squads. Although, he is an emperor, he is also a wise protector, defending tribes on Icaria from other dragons, for the price of prized possessions. He is afilliated with Einar and comes in the Aquilla's Alliance set.
Wind Drakes are orderly creatures who lack any sort of breath weapon, unsual for dragons. Wind Drakes are physically distinguished by small curved horns and large bulky bodies. Their wings are larger and more flexable then other dragon, allowing Wind Drakes to use them as weapons in combat.
Wind Drakes are native to forests and woodlands. They make their lairs in underground caves; easily accessible to the dragons, as they can burrow through the ground. These dragons fly above their territory, using their sense to detect prey through the foliage. The typical Wind Drake lair is dug into heavily wooded mountatin. As with all dragon lairs, the Wind Drake's lair will have two entrances: one at ground level and hidden by the bushes, and one opening onto a high ledge on which it can perch and survey its territory.
The Wind Drakes excells at aerial combat, perhaps moreso than any other species of dragon. Their perchance for melee combat often takes their foes by surprise and their ability to use their wings to block and then counterattack takes many opponents offguard.
One Wind Drake has been summoned to Valhalla.
Charos is a Wind Drake capable of counterstriking with his wings. He is the only dragon without a special ranged attack but he is deadly in hand to hand combat. His bio indicates that Charos is as intelligent as he is strong and is a king in his own right. He is affiliated with Ullar and is from the Orm's Return set.
Ice Drakes expel a cone of cold in battle, freezing the very air around their opponents. Ice Drakes can fly very high and fast, and are exceptional swimmers. Much of their diet often consists of aquatic creatures, even whales.
Ice Drakes are physically distinguished by several features: their heads and necks seem to blend seamlessly into one another, and their wings appear somewhat frayed along the edges. Their heads are very streamlined, and they have a high crest atop their skulls. They have a crisp, vaguely chemical odor. Ice Drakes toes are spaced more widely than other dragons, with barbed claws to aid movement on ice. Their very thin eyelids prevent snowblindness when observing arctic landscapes.
Most Ice Drakes lair in ice caves, often dug into the side of an arctic mountain, on tundra, or glacial plains, although they do not need ice and snow, and some settle near mountain peaks or in forests. They can create their own caves by applying the breath weapon to tightly packed snow in order to transform it into solid ice. Ice Drakes make their homes in frozen lands and ice-covered mountains. More powerful white dragons will sometimes turn a large iceberg into a floating lair. Such lairs always have an underwater entrance as well as one to the open air.
One Ice Drake has been summoned to Valhalla.
Nilfheim is a Ice Drake capable of breathing molten ice. His bio indicates that Nilfheim is called the Ivory Pillar, Diamond Breath, Northern Wind and the Great Protector and he is king of the northern continent of Icaria. Nilfheim is affiliated with Jandar. He comes in the Raknar's Vision set.
Posion Drake appear abnormally slender in comparison to other dragons — wiry, but not gaunt. Physically, Posion Drake are most distinguished by their horns, which protrude from the sides of their heads and wrap around, projecting forward. Unlike other breeds of dragons, Posion Drakes do not have batlike wings, their wings instead are not unlike a butterflies. Posion Drake expel a line of highly corrosive acid.
Posion Drake live in swamps and fetid marshlands. They are cunning creatures who live to inspire fear and rule by intimidation. They have black, glossy scales that add to their camouflage within swamplands. They prefer to ambush their targets, using darkness or water as their cover. They are excellent swimmers and often make their lairs in submerged caves. A Posion Drake typically lairs in a large cave or underground chamber next to a swamp or murky pond. Their lairs always have two entrances: one underwater through the adjacent swamp/pond, and one above-ground, disguised amidst the undergrowth.
They prefer ambushes to straightforward fighting. They are vicious and ruthless adversaries, and their acidic bile can work its way under the heaviest armor with ease. Their only disadvantage is that their heavily wooded habitats tend to prevent them from flying very high in combat. Their diet consists of fish, mollusks, aquatic critters and some red meat from terrestrial animals.
One Posion Drake has been summoned to Valhalla.
Braxas is a Poison Drake capable of breathing poisonous acid. Her breath weapon is extremely effective against small and medium squads and is able to attack three figures at a time. Her bio indicates that few have survived an encounter with Braxas. Those that die are the fortunate, for the survivors wake from sleep screaming, night after night, pursued by phantom yellow eyes. She is affiliated with Vydar and comes in the Raknar's Vision set.
Sonlen is a elf accompanied by a small dragon hatchling. Since elves are from Feylund, it is not known if there are also dragons on that world or if Sonlen aquired the hatchling after coming to Valhalla.
Dragons of D&D HeroscapeEdit
In the alternate universe of D&D Heroscape two more dragons come from Toril and there are also wyrmlings, smaller and weaker froms of dragons, from Eberron.
