The Demon Dragon (Japanese: 魔竜 magic dragon) is breed of dragon in Elibe. It is a one-of-a-kind breed created through the mutation of a divine dragon; its only purpose is to create war dragons to fight humans.

Main article: Idunn

The only known demon dragon was created by the dragonkin during the Scouring. In order to save themselves from crushing defeat by the sheer number of humans, a group of dragons planned to use a divine dragon to create an entity capable of spawning massive numbers of war dragons. Idunn was the subject of this plan, and was abducted and had her soul shattered to transform her into a demon dragon. Even with her ability to spawn war dragons, Idunn and the dragons were defeated, and Idunn was sealed away using the Binding Blade. She spent a thousand years imprisoned until she was freed by Zephiel, who had her resume the creation of war dragons.


Physical appearance

The demon dragon looks similar to Archanean mage dragons, but is much larger and has enormous yet thin, skeletal wings. Its body is covered in a thick layer of spiky scales and its head is horned and has a great scaly crest. While still mostly purple, it also has red patterns running along its length.


The primary ability of the demon dragon is the production of war dragons. In addition to this ability, they possess immense power and attack by striking with their tails or claws, or by exhaling malevolent breath.
