Dragons - An introduction
Reading time ~1 minute
Usually, the being has a serpentine form, and wields a whole arsenal of formidable weapons, which we will examine over the next hundred words posts.
Matched by the danger they present, is only their willingness to perform evil. They are sinister, cunning, most often demanding. As is easily understood, it is common (if not archetypal) for them, to be the mythological villain.
The dragon stands for our baser instincts, or the brutal overlord of the primordial state that comes before the enlightened reign of Good, whose avatar is the hero-saint who slays the serpent, ending the horror and saving all.
