Species Of Dragon #3 (Flankerian)

Flankerian Dragons:
Flankerian dragons are the oldest species of dragon. Related to the Flanker, Flankerian dragons are small and wingless in appearance but tend to have the most physical strength out of any of the species. Their keen sense of smell, vision, and hearing grant them remarkable perception in battle and help them succeed where they would otherwise fail. Flankerian dragons lack of wings and height comes form their evolution form the Flanker, a long living lizard-like creature that crawls on all fours. Flankerian dragons also have the longest life expectancy out of any of the other species of dragons. They easily adapt to their environment, and can adjust to situations in battle quickly. Flankerian dragons are very limited in number, and are almost extinct in the world of Tarterrior. However, mixed hybrids have been found in other dragon species. Flankerian dragons boast up to two rows of jagged teeth, horribly curved claws, simplistic tails, and wickedly sharp back spines (which may or may not fold across the back in order to create a sort of plated armor). Flankerian dragons are easily the most swift and agile on land, and range from eight to nine and half feet as well as 350 to 380 pounds. Their link to the Flanker race also gives them a sort of wild aura in battle and their ability to harness such attacks as fire, electricity, paralysis needles, poison needles, sulfuric flame, heat waves, pulse waves, tremors, and hypnotic power leave them a force to be reckoned with. Known Flankerian dragons of importance include:

Wreaknatter Drudlok

Kestus Vertin (Half Flankerian, half Royalic)

Kinlat Alpir

Let me know if you have any questions about this species. Thanks!

I like having the backgrounds on the different types of dragons. It helps knowing what type of dragon the different characters are. And, it helps paint a picture of what they might look like.
