A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Chinese dragon, with counterparts in Japan (namely the Japanese dragon), Korea and other East Asian countries. The two traditions may have evolved separately, but have influenced each other to a certain extent, particularly with the cross-cultural contact of recent centuries. The English word "dragon" derives from Greek δράκων (drákōn), "dragon, serpent of huge size, water-snake". Some are heroic, others have fallen into a more, darker role. Sometimes they're part of an avatar for humans capable to maintain a dragon form, best exsample, The Amarican Dragon Jake Long series. The possability of it being sentient or unsentient is often a mix possability and depends of the world it comes from.
