Brown dragons, also known as great desert dragons, were ferocious dragons that lived under the desert sands.[3]

Physical descriptionEdit

They had sand colored scales, though unlike other types of dragon their scales were leathery. They had small webbed claws and very large, long mouths. Unlike most other types of dragons, they were wingless. To make up for this, they are the most adept diggers, speeding under loose sand very fast.[3]


Brown dragons preferred ambushes to straightforward fighting, often they buried themselves in the sand and waited for prey. They attacked with great fury.[3]

Breath weaponEdit

A brown dragon's breath weapon was a line of acid, which reduced most animals to little more than sand and dust.[3]
