Orium dragons are a type of metallic dragon. They have a blunt, serpentine head with two rows of short, bony spikes running from their snout all the way to the base of their tail.
Orium dragons prefer to live amidst the crumbling ruins of ancient civilizations, and particularly favor jungles - accordingly, they are found almost exclusively in Estorium. Orium dragons crave not just gold and jewels but history and ancient secrets; the ruins that serve as their lairs are often seen as their greatest treasures. They have little patience for mortals, though will happily make use of them if they can either add to their collections of ancient lore or restore the dilapidated ruins to their former glory.
