Red dragons are the strongest of the chromatic dragons (dragons with colored scales).

They are known for their greed, cruelty,  and destructive power. They take whatever they want, whenever they want it, and they never fail to show off their fiery spells.

These evil mythical creatures are as red as a blood moon and are even larger than gold dragons. A clap of their powerful wings is enough to cause a storm to brew. Red dragons are found in mountainous regions, and some live deep within volcanoes. And as you might have guessed already,  they have better fire control than other dragons. The red dragon symbolizes strength and also good fortune because of its huge treasure stash. Dragao and Draak are just two of the many names that mean dragon.
