The remains of what was once a great dragon, it still roams the land, unaware that its flesh has long since rotted from its bones. It seeks sustenance to sate its insatiable hunger, but everything it consumes falls untouched through the holes in its decrepit body. Its pain and suffering will continue until its bones turn to dust or it is dispelled by the holy magics it despises so.Bone Dragon
