Let's face it - dragons aren't dumb. They each have a degree of intelligence inside - but just how smart are each species?

 

We know that there are some dragons, like the Snow Wraith and Night Fury, who have extreme intelligence and a more general understanding of humans than others.

 

 

Then there are others, like the Hotburple, who seem to be content with a couple things at a time.

 

 

I'm wondering if there's a way to measure dragon intelligence? Has anyone figured that out yet? Are there some dragons that just are, for a better word, lacking?

To me, nothing is more beautiful and terrifying, than a dragon protecting what is theirs.

[She] liked winter best of all, for when the world grew cold, the ice dragon came.

The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear…

 

Ice dragons were rare...

Giant Prickleboggle: Cool like its icy blast

[W]henever it was seen the children would all point and wonder...

http://wm.schoolofdragons.com/SoD/Css/common/Default/Images/prickleboggle-desc.jpg

Tiny Prickleboggle: Cool under pressure

The ice dragon was a crystalline white, that shade of white that is so hard and cold that it is almost blue.…Its teeth were icicles…jagged spears of unequal length, white against its deep blue maw.

Groncicle: Ice in its veins

It was covered with hoarfrost, so when it moved its skin broke and crackled as the crust on the snow crackles beneath a man’s boots, and flakes of rime fell off.

Frozen Groncicle: Carved out of the coldest, oldest glaciers

Its eyes were clear and deep and icy.

Shivertooth: Sharper than the cold of winter

Its wings were vast and bat-like…

Woolly Howl: Creates its own horrible weather

...[T]he beast wheeled in frozen circles through the skies.

Windgnasher: Picks up scents on the wind

When the ice dragon beat its wings, the cold winds blew and the snow swirled and scurried and the world seemed to shrink and shiver.

Snow Wraith: The roar of the chilly winds

Sometimes when a door flew open in the cold of winter, driven by a sudden gust of wind, the householder would run to bolt it and say, “An ice dragon flies nearby.”

Snoggletog Wraith: Guarantees a snowy festive day

And when the ice dragon opened its great mouth and exhaled, it was not fire that came streaming out, the burning sulfurous stink of lesser dragons.

 

The ice dragon breathed cold.

Bewilderbeast: The king of all dragons

Ice formed when it breathed. Warmth fled. Fires guttered and went out, shriven by the chill. Trees froze through to their slow secret souls, and their limbs turned brittle and cracked from their own weight. Animals turned blue and whimpered and died, their eyes bulging and their skin covered over with frost.

 

The ice dragon breathed death into the world; death and quiet and cold.
