Dragons are the highly evolved, big, fierce, dangerous, prehistoric reptiles which serve as the main antagonists of the 2002 film "Reign of Fire" and which serve as both antagonists and protagonists in the video game adaptation "Reign of Fire".

AppearanceEdit

These Dragons have only appeared in one film and one video game so far.

The Dragon appeared for the second and last time in the video game adaptation of the film, Reign of Fire. Unlike the movie, in the game you can choose dragons to be the antagonists as you're playing as dragon slayers, or play as a dragon from a protagonist view, where the humans are the antagonists.

BiologyEdit

The biology of the dragon species still has questions which needs to be answered.

Life historyEdit

The life history of dragons are still a big mystery.

AdulthoodEdit

As a Dragon have grown into a full grown adult, the females dragons will only live for a few months while the male dragon lives much longer and keep impregnating females, thus keeping the species alive. While the male dragon grow incredibly large, the female dragons are always considerably smaller than the male.

NestingEdit

When a mother dragon lays her eggs, she tends to choose anything like a protective man made structure, like a fort for example, to build a nest and lay her eggs. It was once discovered that three female dragons had their nests inside a sea fort contemporarily. The nests are protected by a large brood of dragons circulating and moving inside the nesting area, though if anything or anyone tries to get too close to a nest with eggs, the mother will become very violent, protective, and will panic as it breaths streams of fire against the intruders and flaps violently with it's big wings. (video game)

ReproductionEdit

In every Dragon colony, there is only one huge male which mates with several smaller females.

Feeding strategiesEdit

Dragons, while hunting, tends to burn their prey and eat the ashes.

CannibalismEdit

It was discovered that the Dragons can turn to cannibalism and eats each other when food sources are scarce. During a starvation era, the giant Male Dragon is the dominant predator, the only creature that has no fear and is feared by other Dragons.

MorphologyEdit

The female dragon is considerably smaller than the huge dragon male. The male dragon is gigantic in comparison to the females. The facial differences of both sexes are minimal but still very significant. While the female's somewhat shorter upper horns are rather straight, the male's longer upper horns are more curved. The male's lower horns are considerably shorter than that of the female. The female's mouth and nose is longer in comparison with the male's.

The egg of a dragon has a arther red/orange transparent colour and is about the size of 1.5x0.7 feet.

Fire breathingEdit

It is confirmed, both through Medieval tales and modern observations, that dragons can breath fire. The fire breath is the dragon's primary weapon and very effective and can be extremely devestating.

Napalm breathEdit

Napalm breath is a powerful close range weapon or defense which gives dragons a good upper hand in close encounters with prey or with rivals. The napalm breath shoots out a straight stream of fire extremely fast which can be devestating at close range but isn't as effective to use against long range targets. (video game?)

FireballEdit

Fireballs are a kind of weapon which unlike napalm breath can be used against both close range and long range targets. It is a ball of fire which shoots out of the dragon's mouth very fast and explodes in flames when the target is hit. (video game)

FlightEdit

The flight pattern of dragons is currently unknown and needs further investigation, and how the dragons are even able to fly is also a mystery.

HibernationEdit

When the first modern day Dragon was discovered, it was clear that it had been in a dormant state, it is possible that this species can go into hibernation underground, maybe in a way or attempt of preserving the species. Though it is currently unknown how the Male Dragon could have survived down there in Underground London, and for how long it's been there.

IntelligenceEdit

It appears that Dragons are a highly evolved and highly intelligent species of reptile. From the behaviours of the animals to judge, it appears that their level of intelligence is rather high, making it more understandable how they could outnumber mankind so effectively, though the fire might have had a bigger part in the story, but adding intelligence makes this creature into the ultimate killing machine.

EvolutionEdit

The evolution of the Dragons still has many questions that needs to be answered. There are still mysteries and things we don't know about this magnificent animal species.

PrehistoryEdit

The oldest Dragon ancestors appearantly existed long before and coexisted with the dinosaurs and they are appearantly also the reason dinosaurs are now extinct. What the prehistoric dragons actually looked like is yet unknown, though it is possible that they havent changed that much for all those millions of years they have been in existence, and they might have looked very much like they do today.

HistoryEdit

Modern man first encountered the Dragon species around the Viking Age and the Middle Ages as many were slaughtered by Vikings and Knights.

Present dayEdit

The Dragons were rediscovered in 2010 when a young boy named Quinn Abercromby investigated the tunnels during the construction of Underground London, and as he climbed into a cave which the workers had discovered, it was discovered that the cave was inhabited by a huge hybernating Dragon. As it is awaken, it incinerates all workers and escapes to the surface, leading to the future Dragon population which will take over the world.

ExtinctionEdit

In 2024, as a small force of surviving humans, and dragon slayers, invade the Dragon infested London, they try for several times to slay The Dragon Male (which is the origin of all Dragons and the only hope for their species' survival), yet fails. During their last attempt to slay the Dragon they succeed as Quinn Abercromby (the first modern day person to come face to face with the first Dragon, the Male Dragon, back in 2010) shots an arrow with napalm inside the dragon's mouth as it exhales, making it explode from inside, and ultimately marks the end of it's species.

Possible future survivalEdit

It is yet unknown whether some dragon(s) might have survived and might bring the species back to existence in the near future.
