"Dragonology is a truly fascinating field."

Dragons are, within the Multiverse, an informal grouping of all the beings with reptilian morphology that come from the draconic lineage. Creatures that fall under this grouping can be split between Celestial Dragons or Terrestrial Dragons by way of their origins.

The informal grouping comes from the fact that the "sub-species" mentioned above are not genetically linked with each other, but share appearances. This similar appearance is because the Terrestrial Dragons once mimicked its Celestial counterpart.[1] Both "sub-species" take inspiration of Earth dragons from mythology, which are equally varied in appearance and cultural perceptions.

Non-playable Dragons are often depicted in Riot's games as formidable beings.

Culture

Some species are both fearsome and majestic, having a society that revolves around strength and might and because of their egoistic and narcissistic pride, mixing their blood with that of races outside of dragonkind are seen as an abomination, a cancer that must be eradicated utterly. Many dragons persecute such defiled creations and their perpetrators to no end, a thing that Shyvana Shyvana, the Half-Dragon, found out firsthand.

Such immense and awe inspiring creatures have left their mark on other cultures and people of Runeterra (Runeterra Map profileicon.png Runeterra Prime universe).

Trivia

  • The Science of Dragons is called Dragonology, and its researchers are called Dracologists.
  • Shyvana's Shyvana's old lore explained a bit of Dragon physiology. Dragons have a form of sexual dimorphism, where the females are always born with an 'Elemental Rune' for a heart. In Shyvana's case, she was born with a fire rune. This suggests that all the elemental drakes are females and elder dragons are males, since only females are linked to an element.
  • The Flame Dragon profileicon.png Dragon World universe depicts a world where Dragons roam free in vast numbers.
  • The 2020 Dragonmancer profileicon.png Dragonmancers universe depicts a world where characters wield the powers of ancient and might dragons.

  • In the Multiverse, there are several types of dragon skins:
Dragon themselves
Characters wielding a dragons power
Characters slaying or training dragons
Characters with dragon motifs on them
