Dragons are beings who can appear human or anything they wish to be. The appearance of a dragon is in Grave Peril and again in Proven Guilty.

Very little is said about Dragons.

DescriptionEdit

According to Harry, dragons are supposed to be big with scales, claws, wings and so forth. According to Ferrovax, they can appear as anything they wish to be.[1]

In the series Edit

Grave PerilEdit

Main article: Grave Peril

In Grave Peril, the Dragon Ferrovax attended Bianca St. Claire's masquerade party as a Roman legionary.[1]

Michael Carpenter reports that he slew the Dragon[2] Siriothrax when he rescued his future wife Charity.[1]

Proven GuiltyEdit

Main article: Proven Guilty

In Proven Guilty, after Molly Carpenter was abducted by a Fetch, sitting in the upper pews of the balcony at Saint Mary of the Angels, Charity Carpenter told Harry the story of how Michael rescued her from Siriothrax. She had been traded to Siriothrax by Gregor in exchange for power.[3]

Word of ButcherEdit

According to Jim Butcher there are two types of dragons[4], distinguished by their spelling: Dragons "large D" and dragons "little d".

Dragons (with an uppercase D) are elemental forces of the cosmos in the more Asian sense of the concept, semi-divine beings who were once given authority over various portions of the mortal universe, and who were responsible for their orderly procession.

The dragons (with a regular lowercase d) are like the general concept of dragons, but they are essentially nothing but emissaries and servitors created in the image of the real thing. There are not nearly as many as there were in the past.

Both kinds of dragons almost universally resent humanity for usurping the balance of power in the world.
