Dragon are a race of creatures in Pillars of Eternity.

Description[edit | edit source]

Wurms[edit | edit source]

Young dragons begin as wurms, though most never develop beyond that stage. Wurms are clever and sly, if not especially intelligent. To develop into a drake (and eventually a dragon), a wurm must have ample space and resources (food). They will not develop if they live near drakes and dragons. They must seek out a habitat that has not already been claimed by a larger counterpart.

Since the chances of further development are low, most wurms will band together in covens for survival. They are bold and highly aggressive – both competition for food among other coven members, and claiming territory for further development, demand this.

Drake[edit | edit source]

Drake is the second development stage of a dragon. If wurms survive several decades, they become drakes. their intelligence is somewhere in the range of primates. They are also much larger and more dangerous than wurms. Very few survive past the drake phase.[1]

Dragon[edit | edit source]

Dragon is both the name for the creature and the short title for the mature stage of its lifecycle. During their enormously long life cycle of hundreds, if not thousands of years, dragons go through three stages of growth before reaching their final adult form (Egg, Wurm, Drake, Dragon).

Dragons become larger, stronger and more intelligent as they grow older. Adult dragons are powerful and impressive creatures, often dozens of feet long with commensurate wingspans. Their intelligence frequently surpasses that of most other sentient beings, including humans.

Despite dragons' solitary nature, they are revered as deities by Xaurips, who often build their communities around a dragon's lair, aiding in the much larger creature's defense and sustenance.

Like drakes, mature dragons adapt to fit in their environment, but even more extensively. Their coloration, ornamentation, and (to a limited degree) body structure will reflect their chosen territory, as will some of their attacks and defenses. Because they have already claimed territory and rarely face a threat from other dragons or drakes, they are more conservative in nature and will not seek unnecessary conflict.

Only dragons can mate. This is generally the only occasion that will cause a dragon to leave its lands or seek out others of its kind. Upon reaching the dragon stage, these creatures will assume a sex. However, if surrounding populations are too heavily skewed one way or the other, individual dragons can change their sex. As creatures that reach this stage are so rare, this ability is critical to the survival of the species.
