Characteristics: winged, serpentine, barbed tail, talons, poisonous
Wyverns are slightly smaller than most western dragons. They have talons on their claws, a barbed tail and cannot breathe fire though to make up for this they are poisonous. Wyverns have the lowest intelligence of all known draconic species. Most have claws on their wings which act as an extra pair of hands which they use to climb into their rocky mountain-side lairs. Even though they are small, they are still considered to be strong and can carry heavy loads.
