Dragons are legendary creatures that roam the world of Nirn, but are rarely seen. Fearsome as they might be, there are followers that worship dragons, but many also use them for evil purposes, using their powers for destruction and pain.
The dragons of Nirn have several aspects, such as Red, Green, Gold and Blue, but the most fearsome and destructive dragon is the Black dragon. Black dragons usually live in swamps, and there are rumors that there is an exceptionally large one living in the South East mountains, close to the homestead of the Goliaths. Black Dragons seem to have a tendency to appear out of nowhere without warning, as if the Gods of Nirn summoned them to spread suffering amongst adventuring parties.
