True Cave Drakes resembled diminutive Cold-drakes. They had no wings; nor did they possess a breath weapon. Cave Drakes relied on their short, powerful legs and muscular bodies when hunting prey near their cavernous, highland homes. Denizens of caves and volcanos, they were quarrelsome and territorial and terrified of the true Dragons, although they would deny it vehemently and would "drop names,"claiming to know old Scatha (or whomever was the nearest Great Drake) well. While able to speak, they remained stupid by the standards of Great Drakes and cherished polished glass over uncut gems, since the former gleamed so brightly. They were appalling liars (both in quality and quantity).
