The Dragon Alphabet

Recommended Posts

This game is easy, starting at A, we each have to provide the name of a Dragon (it must exist within a book, videogame, etc) Do please provide an explanation of where is the dragon taken from.

I'll start off with

Aureus Fulgen

The first dragon of the Fulgen brood in Dragons of the Red Moon.

I'm willing to be the second only because this one is from the Red Moon and has the biography I like the most:

Baastherox

The mightiest. A solitary dragon of humongous power. It once had a legendary fight with ... ; his broken horn is a reminder of that failure.

Chrysophylax Dives

The dragon from Farmer Giles of Ham by J.R.R. Tolkein.

Illuyanka of the Hittites.  He defeated the storm god Teshub, and kept Teshub's heart and eyes as a trophy.  The maimed Teshub lived on and had a son named Sarruma.  Teshuba contrived to have Sarruma marry Illuyanka's daughter and have Illuyanka return his heart and eyes as a wedding present.  With the return of his organs and power, Teshub slew Illuyanka and his own dishonored son Sarruma.

Didn't know about this dragon off the top of my head, so glad to have wikipedia.

Jörmungandr, 'world serpent' !  

Jorgumander, of Norse mythology, son of Loki, lived in the sea and was so vast that he encompassed the whole Earth.  His only weakness was the wile and strength of Thor, who was destined to defeat him around the end times and Ragnorok (or is it Gottendamerung).  Unfortunately, the venom of the Midgard (Earth) serpent meant the death of "immortal" Thor as well.

Falkor, from Neverending Story. One of my favourite Dragons 

Interesting fact: In the German ogirinal it is called "Fuchur".
