TheStag Dragonis a beautiful and powerful beast, but also a shy and passive creature that prefers to be left alone in the forests in which it resides.
The Stag Dragon seems to blend the features of mammalian deer and elk with those of reptilian dragons. It is an ancient creature and has many similarities with ancient beasts who walked the Earth many millions of years ago. It has massive antlers and hooves like an elk, with a furry mane and tail. It also has bony plates and is covered in silvery scales.
The Stag Dragon is ancient even by dragon standards. It was believed to thrive in the cold weather of the last ice age, and may have been hunted to extinction by early humans. It preferred to avoid contact with men, often fleeing rather than fighting when approached. Its non-aggressive nature may have made it a more appealing target for hunters.
It is believed to be extinct, though unconfirmed sightings are occasionally reported in remote forests and other areas of unspoiled wilderness. It's possible that the last remaining Stag Dragons have simply become better at eluding their human pursuers.
