Description: Morgrou, called Fire Drakes, frequent volcanic regions and are rumored to sometimes swim in magma itself without a care. Over 8 feet long, these massive lizards eat voraciously and so will sometimes have to stray from their scorching habitat in search of food. They eat flesh, and do not care if it is scorched or raw.
Morgrou are frequently mistaken for red dragons, and indeed, their fire breath is much like that of a newly hatched red dragon, though they cannot fly and have far fewer options in combat. Still, to a small village, the terror and fire a Morgrou brings might as well be that brought by a red dragon of any size.
