Aquatic Draconoids[edit]

Draconoids are relatively short-lived dragons who are not innately magical like their longer-lived cousins are. Aquatic draconoids average 4-5 feet tall at the shoulder (when on all fours, 6-7 feet tall when standing on their hind legs) and 300 pounds heavy. They are just as comfortable underwater as they are on land, and many of their cities exist across both. Their scales can be any color, but blue is the most common. Their eyes can be any color. Their wings are small and fin-like, and only allow them to glide. They wear simple, comfortable clothing that doesn't get in the way of their swimming.


Io, Tiamat, and Bahamut are the chiefly worshipped dragon deities, with Io being the father of the other two. Tiamat is a Lawful Evil five-headed goddess, and Bahamut is a Lawful Good god. Io is Neutral.

For more draconic deities, see Io's deific relationships.
