The legends were saying that if you could get close enough to one, you could see stardust in their eyes. The Elders thought that the secret of the very fabric of the Universe was known by these creatures, and that they could create or destroy entire worlds at their whim. The truth is, nobody knew anything about them. Just that once in a blue moon they would show up and interfere with the wars that were reshaping the lands, usually just killing every living creature and ending everything. Besides that, they were not interested in any conflicts, and no matter how many brave men would try to get near them, either for help or to contain their power, nobody would come back alive to tell the tale. They were indestructible, unstoppable forces of nature, and they would give nobody any reason for their actions. Some people venerated them, and thought of them as Gods that were living among them, others were fearing that one day they would unleash hell upon everything. And still, nothing could change their behavior. The dragons were always there. Waiting patiently. For thousands of years.
