Overview:

The Plains Walker is a mighty dragon, originating from the shattered plain. And majority of the population still calls the plains their home.

Physical Attributes:
This enormous dragon was, and still is one of the largest dragons in the land. Due to their immense size and heavy bulk, they are capable of flying, but prefer not to. Instead, they walk around the barren fields in search of water and meat. Plains walkers do not hunt, instead they bully other creatures off of already dead corpses. They can go for weeks without food and water, and are capable of storing water inside of their large tails. Plains walkers are also covered in razor sharp armored scales, and spines. They can shoot out their spines like a porcupine.

Social:
Plains walkers are mostly solitary. But whenever they are with another dragon, chances are it is with their mate. These dragons mate for life, and therefore must be picky when choosing a partner. During the correct time, male dune walkers will head out to search for the much larger females. When encountering a female, he will present her with a gift, such as precious gems. Or the corpse of an opposing male. When two males come across the same female, the encounter almost always ends in bloodshed. Most Plains Walker deaths are caused by eachother.

Lairs:
Plains walker lairs are very simply. They will use their oversized arms and claws to scrape out a lair in the ground. The lairs are decorated with various scraps, and bones they find while exploring the wilderness.

Tactics:
Plains walkers fight alone, or alongside their partner. They don't have much of a strategy in combat, use their size, and massive powerful claws to ruthlessly beat down attackers. Their large tails, and sharp spines/scales are also formidable weapons. Plains walkers almost always fight tooth and claw, casters are few and far between.

CHUMNKY ARMS on cHUMNKY LADS. Oh boi, what a good concept. That art is fantastic, I miss drawing on paper and adding so many details...

Anyway, seeing that they theoretically murder each other, how does that work in Draconic society? Wouldn't it be illegal to kill another dragon person, just like it works for humans? I get that they're Ancients so they might operate on a different social structure, like other non-human apes do, but how would other people react to that? Are they even on same social, conceptual and theological intelligence levels as modern breeds since we know that the rest of Dragonkind has an intelligence type similar to humans? I'm just asking because I'd love to know since allowing murder in a civilised society is a bit tricky!

I love the natural world, and I often think of real animals when writing the behaviors for fictional ones. I was thinking of these guys as an extremely primitive species. And therefore have primitive behaviors and mindsets. Not really thought about how they would integrate with everyone else. Who knows. Maybe they're outcasted for being a bunch of meanie heads. Or maybe not even treated as dragonkind. Like how humans don't consider apes human, and treat them as wildlife. Food for thought.
