History: If you've heard stories of knights and dragons, they were most likely stories of forest dragons. Europe was once covered by forests, and these dark woodlands teamed with forest dragons, although each kept to it's own territory. Travelers and woodsman all spied forest dragons occasionally, and the resulting fright required that brave warriors seek the mighty beasts in their lairs.
Forest dragons preferred to avoid conflict, only attacking when attacked, and they often moved to deeper forests when human settlements expanded.
