This page is about the various draconian monsters. For the player species, see draconian.

"Trogdor was a man!
I mean, he was a dragon-man!
Or... maybe he was just a dragon.
And the Trogdor comes in the night!"

-The Brothers Chaps, "Trogdor". 2003.

Draconians are the mythical half-dragon inhabitants of the Realm of Zot. Each draconian has a colour, and some have occupations as well; the different colors determine their draconian breath attacks and resistances, while the occupations determine their equipment, skills, and spells. Fortunately, they are all cold-blooded creatures and will be slowed by weapons of freezing (unless cold resistant).

Draconian Colours & Breath Attacks

A scale-covered humanoid with a reptilian tail and small wings.

d Draconian (monster).png Draconian - Immature draconians with no breath attack. If you see one, it's probably a shapeshifter in disguise.

d Black draconian.png Black draconian - Flight-capable draconians that breathe highly-damaging bursts of electricity.

d Green draconian.png Green draconian - Poisonous draconians that have stinger tails and can breathe clouds of poison.

d Grey draconian.png Grey draconian - These draconians lack breath weapons but have more AC, hit harder, and do not drown.

d Pale draconian.png Pale draconian - Draconians that breathe jets of steam, which don't do much damage but block line of sight.

d Purple draconian.png Purple draconian - Occult draconians that are quite resistant to magic and breathe blasts of irresistible, enchantment-stripping energy.

d Red draconian.png Red draconian - Fiery draconians that spew blasts of fire that leave behind clouds of flames.

d White draconian.png White draconian - Frosty draconians with AC-piercing cold breath. Their icy nature negates the side-effects of their cold-blooded physiology.

d Yellow draconian.png Yellow draconian - Draconians that will melt your equipment with their acid breath.

Unique draconians

d Bai Suzhen.png Bai Suzhen - An odd, watery draconian from a distant land. Her skill in battle and ability to Summon Hydras are dangerous enough, but wounding her will force her to unleash her true form...

d Tiamat.png Tiamat - Found only in the Realm of Zot, Tiamat is a brutally powerful opponent. She changes her colour randomly and wears the powerful dragonskin cloak, giving her a wide range of resistances. She always travels with a large entourage of lesser draconians.

q Draconian zealot.png Draconian zealot - Servants of a dark god that could summon demons, raise the dead, and hurl hellfire.


  • Prior to 0.28, classed draconians could randomly spawn with varying colours.
  • Mottled draconians and draconian zealots were removed in 0.20.
  • 0.20 also introduced draconian stormcallers by merging zealots with the old draconian callers.
