Dragon

King Arthur's Magic Circuit Dragon.

Dragon Kind (竜種, Ryū Shu?) are considered the pinnacle of the Phantasmal Species. They are members of the Transcendent Kind, and are extensions of the world that were created in a form that is independent from nature with intelligence. They have members in all three classes of Magical Beasts, and they are considered to be the greatest species within each corresponding class. Due to their being Monstrous, Phantasmal, and Divine class dragons, they have been involved with mankind since before the Age of Gods, and left many legends in the field of thaumaturgy due to having freely intermixed with humans in the past.

AttributesEdit

Dragons are creatures that generate magical energy merely by breathing, their lungs acting as spiritual worlds, and they possess traits from other types of monsters. It is possible for a human to have the blood of a dragon, whether induced artificially like King Arthur or from having Mixed-Blood like Elizabeth Bathory. Simply having their blood within them grants humans high level Magic Resistance able to easily dispel magecraft from the Age of Gods, and King Arthur has a Magic Core that far surpasses the Magic Circuits of humans. Dragons and humans are generally incompatible with each other, but, while dragons are creatures that devour humans by simply existing, conflicts between them are for the most part caused by humans taking action first in order to gain something. Those who attack humans first would generally be looked down upon.[1]

Dragons each have an attribute, and their strongest weapon, Dragon's Breath (ドラゴンブレス, Doragon Buresu?), capitalizes upon it by using breath to spread it excessively over the wide area of effect as a torrent of mana. Red dragons carry flame, blue dragons carry thunder, black dragons carry acid, and Elizabeth Bathory carries soundwaves. There are also white dragons, gold dragons, silver dragons and green dragons, however it is unknown what kinds of breaths, they can produce. The damage value, according to a certain rulebook, is the same as the constitution value of the dragon. Due to having a constitution value which transcends that of humans by far, it is not unreasonable to think of a single dragon being able to destroy a whole country when equally spreading the damage from its breath throughout a whole army.[2]

There are different types, the western dragons being considered demons and the strongest of the Phantasmal Species, and Chinese Dragons (, Ryū?) being treated as divine existences and invincible beings that do not even need to fight. The Chinese dragons do contain a rough spot, a Reverse Scale (逆鱗, Gyaku Uroko?) below their chins, that when touched, causes them to rage and devastate the earth with their rampaging power. It shows that even such perfect existences also display a deplorable side.[2]

List of DragonsEdit

Colchis dragonEdit

The Colchis dragon (コルキスの竜, Korukisu no Ryū?) appears in the Greek Mythology of Jason. The Colchis dragon itself is noted to be weak enough that it would not make much of a difference against Heroic Spirits of high caliber.[3] Argon Coin has the ability to summon the Colchis dragon but Medea does not have the capability to utilize it as she lacks the necessary spells to summon any Phantasmal Beasts.

Dragon (Beowulf)Edit

The Dragon that appeared in the epic poem of "Beowulf" appeared in the second part of the story. Part two portrays an aged Beowulf unfolding a mortal combat with the dragon, fifty years after. It has been said that the dragon who fought the aged Beowulf would amass treasures and spit out fire. It could be said that its existence is like an archetype of the dragons that appear in fantasy stories.
