The river dragon is a ferocious dragon commonly found in the canals, rivers and water ways of the River Nations. This finned dragon swims with a subtle grace that belies its size. It moves on land similar to a snake and is just as dangerous out of water is it is in. The river dragon scalds its enemies with river water super heated with its breath before devouring them.
