Description: Brooding and distrustful, cobalt dragons respect only strength. They breathe bitterly cold clouds of vapor that freeze their victims in thick ice.
Cobalt dragons are usually found in frigid, gloomy lands, such as the forests of the far north or the mistbound vales of the Shadowfell. They measure their power by the quality and quantity of lesser creatures they can subjugate; most cobalts take pride in the martial spirit and abilities of their minions, but the worst are brutal, bullying tyrants who demand fealty and tribute. This trait makes it dangerous for travelers to venture into lands claimed by cobalt dragons, since the dragons might attack passing travelers to establish their own strength. Good-aligned cobalt dragons are likely to accept a foe’s surrender after a suitable show of force and allow them to go their way after a judicious bribe or promise of tribute. Wicked cobalt dragons are inclined to fall on travelers and simply devour them if the lesser creatures can’t offer any worthwhile ransom for their lives.
