The first life in Enduwin were massive hulking creatures, before the Nine experimented with different variations. Dragons are considered to be one of the few original forms of life left. Lasair, Tintrayach, Solas and Naduir all had a hand in their creation Ancient as a species, each individual can live for centuries. These creatures ruled Enduwin for the First Age and much of the Other Age. They are now, however, extremely scarce, many have been barbarically killed by younger species whom overwhelm them with sheer force of numbers. The unique qualities of a dragon's scales, hide and bone make them among the best materials from which to craft arms and armaments. This makes the loss of life in hunting them, more often than not, worth it. The few dragons that remain live isolated, individual lives, only ever appearing in groups every two centuries or so for breeding. There have been rare occasions where a dragon has deemed a lower race worthy to work with and enters into a mutually beneficial pact whereby the dragon will wage war alongside them, and they in turn will openly oppose and prevent the hunting of its kin.
