A black dragon by PsychaDurmont. Black Dragons are evil dragons that prefer the solitude of swamps for their lairs. They are able to breathe underwater and are fiercely independent, to the point of being uncontrollable by their masters - the Black Wing of Dragonarmies in the War of the Lance fell apart because of its inability to control their dragons. Black dragons use darkness to blind their enemies, attacking with their deadly acid and spells. Black dragons have the ability to breathe underwater for long periods of time, but this is not indefinite. Only White Dragons can truly breathe underwater. The most famous black dragon is Khisanth, or Onyx, who guarded the Blue Crystal Staff and the Disks of Mishakal that were hidden in Xak Tsaroth prior to the War of the Lance.
