    Bronze Fafnir
Bronze Buddy
Rarity: 4
Favorite Gift: Juicy Meat

  • Alliterative Name: Its title.
  • Ascended Extra / Promoted to Playable: These things are usually found in Avenue of Power, and now they have the chance to be recruited by trading in void seeds from the Void Battles.
  • Character Narrator: He narrates his own Dragon Story about how he ended up with a burglar.
  • Experience Booster: Just equipping one will increase experience for all adventurers in the party, and its effect can stack with other Bronze Fafnirs.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: His story shows that he's unaware that burglars are bad people.
  • Joke Character: He's this to 4* dragons. Even fully unbound, maximum bond level and maximum XP level 3* dragons have more might than him.


    Gloom Drake
Rarity: 3
Favorite Gift: Compelling Book

  • Character Narrator: Unlike most other dragon stories, Gloom Drake's has her narrate her own story, as she seeks a perfect home.

    Gold Fafnir
Gold Gentleman
Rarity: 5
Favorite Gift: Mana Essence

  • Joke Character: Like his bronze brother and silver sister, he has less stats than a fully leveled and bonded three star dragon. Even moreso as a five star dragon!
  • Money Multiplier: Its Rupies ability increases the amount of rupies pulled in by 25% on completion of a mission, 50% when fully unbound. The ability stacks up with multiple copies of the same dragon, allowing you to seriously rack up the gold.

Rarity: 3
Favorite Gift: Kaleidoscope

  • Character Narrator: His story is from his point of view, as he discusses his fondness for human society.
  • Mainlining the Monster: Has taken some of Roc's scales or claw sheaths when she was sleeping and sold them to humans in his story. She didn't take it very well.

Violent Brute
Rarity: 4
Favorite Gift: Juicy Meat

  • Be Careful What You Wish For: A noble family north of Alberia, jealous of the royal family's connection to dragons, wanted their own, so they made a lair worthy of one. They got one in the form of Juggernaut who ate all the game and casually destroyed the countryside. When they tried to kick him out, he just took over their castle.
  • Big Eater: Dragalia Life #105 shows that he's such a big eater he threatens the Halidom's food stocks regularly. It's up to Zace threatening to add some dragon bones to his collection that makes him decide it's time to get exercise. Bonus points for Juicy Meat being his favorite gift.
  • Delinquent Hair: His horn is shaped to look a pompadour, befitting his more rowdy and troublesome nature.
  • One Steve Limit: Played with. Though there is no other living thing that shares his name, there is an axe that does.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His appearance.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He's at least one of the only recruitable dragons who's explicitly stated to be evil.
  • Victory Is Boring: One of his Level 1-9 Bond quotes is about this trope.
    "It's tough being this strong. Winning every fight gets boring after a while."

Dawning Dragon
Rarity: 5
Voiced by: Yuki Kaida (Japanese), Katherine Taylor (English)
Favorite Gift: Mana Essence

  • Animal Motifs: Boars/Pigs, based from the Chinese Zodiac.
  • Badass Armfold: She has this pose in the second version of the "Heralds of Hinomoto" wyrmprint.
  • BFS: She carries a sword that’s as long as she is tall.
  • Blood Knight: She's quite eager to fight compared to the more peaceful Ieyasu. At ranks 10-20, she wants to hear some “blood and guts” stories from Euden.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: At level 20-30 friendship, she starts noticing this about herself.
    ”You know something? When you're around, I actually don't miss war. ...Which is REALLY disturbing.”
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: A very eager to fight red compared to her master Ieyasu's blue.
  • Weapon Across the Shoulder: She carries her sword like this.

Beloved Mascot
Rarity: 5
Voiced by: Etsuko Kozakura (Japanese), Adam Kozlick (English)
Favorite Gift: Kaleidoscope
Alternate Element: Water (Halloween)
A dragon that watches over the Harmonia Choir.

For Halloween he dresses up as a magician.
  • An Ice Person: His skill Polar Rollar can freeze enemies.
  • The Fashionista: He really likes to accessorize. He has a giant bell around his neck for example.
  • Friend to All Children: He's this to the children of the choir. So much so that in his story, he gave away all of his possessions to keep it from being taken away by the new landowners. He also helps protect them from fiends during the event.
  • Furry Confusion: Ranzal thought he was a giant bear, which he says he isn't.
  • Mascot: His title is the “Beloved Mascot” to the choir.
  • Meaningful Name: The scientific name for polar bears is Ursus maritimus, where he gets his name from.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Appears to be more mammalian in appearance.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Just look at him!
  • Rolling Attack: His Polar Roller attack has him tun into a giant ball to crush his enemies before him.
  • Suddenly Voiced: While Maritimus spoke during cutscenes in the Japanese version, he made animal noises during gameplay and was completely unvoiced in the English version. He eventually got voiced lines during gameplay along with an English voice actor.


Death's Reveler
Rarity: 5
Favorite Gift: Compelling Book

A cruel dragon who revels in death.

  • Armor-Piercing Question: The dying noble asks Nidhogg if there's a world beyond life and death. He could administer death, but he's unable to die, so he doesn't know how to answer that question.
  • Death World: The Rotten Spring is so toxic that no living thing can survive too long. It's why the noble is left to die there. Nidhogg is the only thing that can even live there.
  • No Body Left Behind: The noble of his story, left to die in the Rotten Spring, leaves nobody behind when he dies because it's just so toxic that it melts his body.
  • Tsundere: His quote when you come give him food comes off as this.
    Here. For you. ...Just a lark, mind. Don't get any ideas.

Crawling Chaos
Rarity: 5
Favorite Gift: Compelling Book

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite its dark, eldritch appearance, Nyarlathotep is a neutral being at worst. This is in stark contrast to the other Nyarlathotep, which is white.
  • Deal with the Devil: In his Dragon Story, he, or the White Emissary, offers gifts of this type to a young orphan in the hopes of making him sinful enough to necessitate taking his soul, since he can only reap souls stained with sin, but the boy manages to be as kind and noble with his gifts as he is when Nyarlathotep takes them away. It takes Nyarlathotep twisting the definition of greed for him to finally consider the boy a worthy sacrifice, but, by that point, the boy saw Nyarlathotep as a friend, and explicitly stated that he wanted to stay with him forever, so the ending could be seen as bittersweet, in a twisted sort of way.
  • Draconic Abomination: Named after one of the biggest Eldritch Abominations in the Cthulhu Mythos.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Is almost afraid of the orphan in his Dragon Story, and recoils from his pure heart. He’s left utterly baffled by the boy’s generosity in the face of a soul-taker such as him.
  • Eyeless Face: It doesn't have any eyes.
  • I Have Many Names: It notes that it has gone by many names throughout its life. This means it's possible for another being to also be named Nyarlathotep.
  • I Just Want to Be Free: The end of "The Accursed Archives" reveals that all Nyarlathotep wanted was to be free from the library it was sealed in.
  • Royal "We": Always refers to itself in plural.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: It speaks through complex words and metaphors that leaves everyone but Heinwald confused on what it's talking about.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Assumes this task in his Dragon Story, stealing the souls of the corrupt as sacrifices for the Ancient One. He runs into a boy who, much to his shock, won't appear to ever be corrupted by his gifts, and is left wondering if he can ever take him. He finds a way.

    Pallid Imp
Rarity: 3
Favorite Gift: Mana Essence

Gruesome Specter
Voiced by: Tarusuke Shingaki (Japanese), Graeme Davies (English)
Rarity: 5
Favorite Gift: Floral Circlet

A good-hearted dragon who rescued Felicia from the clutches of Thanatos.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: He was shunned by people and even dragons for looking like a fiend.
  • Beast and Beauty: The Beast to Felicia's Beauty.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Phantom has always been a Nice Guy, but he's especially devoted to Felicia because she's the very first person who didn't judge him for his appearance and accepted him as a friend.
  • Casting a Shadow: Phantom is resistant to the effects of black mana and can even remove it from people that are infected by it. However, even he has his limits on how much black mana he can absorb.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Unlike his enemy Thanatos who revels in his own evil, Phantom is one of the good guys.
  • Face of a Thug: He looks like a fiend, but Phantom is a noble, selfless dragon who tries to help people.
  • Interspecies Romance: Mym quickly susses out that he's in love with Felicia, though he's very reluctant to admit it even to himself.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: In the past, Phantom saved a country that was being terrorized by fiends. Unfortunately, when the fiends were all gone, the people accused him of being a fiend that caused all of their troubles and sealed him away.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's one of the few male dragons that accepts Floral Circlet as a gift in the Dragon's Roost (a gift that generally accept by mostly female dragons or more effeminate dragons like Cupid). It may be justified, as the gift reminds him of Felicia's kind and gentle nature of her personality.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He was sealed away in the space between worlds because people feared him for his appearance.
  • Taking the Bullet: After Thanatos is defeated, he tries to take Felicia down with him, but Phantom holds Thanatos back, taking the brunt of Thanatos's last attack.

Ancestral Ninja
Voiced by: Hideo Ishikawa (Japanese), Mark Mathison (English)
Rarity: 5

  • Flechette Storm: Shuriken Shower rains down hundreds of shurikens on his enemies.
  • Ninja: Not only is he a dragon ninja, but he's the progenitor of ninja of Hinomoto.
  • Palette Swap: He's the Shadow version of Gilgamesh.
  • Status Buff: A fully unbound Shinobi gives Shadow units Skill Damage +90% damage increase.
  • Super Empowering: He does this in his story to a ninja wishing to protect a princess from his former lord's wrath, giving him a portion of his power on the condition he never use it for evil.

Friend Eternal
Festive Prankster 
Voiced by: Aoi Yuuki (Japanese), Raynn Eastwood (English) (English)
Alternate element: Light (Halloween)
Rarity: 4 (Both versions)
Favorite Gift: Floral Circlet

  • Dead Guy on Display: She would stuff her "friends" to keep them forever.
  • Opulent Outfits: Wears one.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: She is very aware that she'll inevitably outlive any friend that she can make, which has led her to take some terrifying extremes.
  • The Prankster: Really enjoys playing tricks and gleefully ponders what tricks to pull off.
  • Wax Museum Morgue: She displays the taxidermied bodies of her "friends" in her castle.
  • Yandere: Is clingy to a terrifying degree and is happy to desecrate humans' bodies to preserve them. Her dragon story even implies that she usually doesn't wait for her "friends" to die on their own before she has them stuffed.
    • Her Dragon's Roost quotes suggest that she wants to be friends with everyone, so it's possible that she just has a weird perspective on friendship rather than being a full-blown yandere.

    Silver Fafnir
Silver Sidekick
Rarity: 4
Favorite Gift: Kaleidoscope

  • Alliterative Name: Its title.
  • Experience Booster: Where Bronze Fafnir boosts experience gained, she boosts mana gained at the end of quests.
  • Joke Character: Like her bronze brother, she has less stats than a fully unbound, max level and bonded 3* dragon.
