A dragon is defined as a creature that eats large amount of meat,
prefers mountain habitat, lairs in caves, defends his territory, and
is fairly aggressive; plus he likes gold. Oh yeah, and he can fly.
Plus you toss on the usual bunch of stats and stuff. But the important
part is defining those characteristics: what does he eat? Where does
he live? What does he like and dislike?
Given a spawn system, doesn't matter what it is, you'll get a dragon.
