Green dragons are highly territorial, and will often view any intrusion into their domain, voluntary or not, as a personal affront. The forests where they dwell and protect are often very old and are not to be tampered with. Green Dragons are the most 'Druidic' of the dragon-kind, favoring the use of natural magic to encourage the life of the trees, animals and plants in their domain.

Some greens have been known to use their 'life magic' to augment or twist the form of some animals within their domain to become better guardians. Many consider the Owlbear to be a product of Green Dragon magic.

Physical Attributes

Green dragons are most notable for the large, waving crest or fin that starts at the dragon's nose and runs the entire length of the dragon's body. They also have exceptionally long, slender forked tongues. They smell like chlorine gas.


The typical green dragon lair will be a complex of caves and tunnels, with its main entrance hidden behind a waterfall. The preferred green dragon lair is a cave high up on a cliff, but such locations are usually hard to find and thus only home to the oldest and most powerful green dragons.

Parenting and Development

Green Dragon-01
Green dragons are reasonably good parents, with both mother and father typically staying close to their eggs while they are incubating. Green dragon females either keep their eggs in a solution of acid or bury them in leaves moistened with rainwater. The green wyrmling is easily mistaken for a black, due to their nearly black scales. As the wyrmling matures, its scales become steadily lighter in color until they reach the striking green shade of an adult. The wyrmlings typically stay with both parents until they reach adulthood (approximately 100 years).
