Dragon Cave Wiki

Aegis Dragons (by encyclopedia, Holiday 2015 Dragons), are the all-male Holiday dragon released during the Holidays of 2015.

As a limited-release dragon, they are only capable of producing more Aegis eggs during a brief period when the Holidays are celebrated in December. They can still be bred to all year round, though they will only produce their non-Holiday mate's breed. Each scroll is limited to 2 cave-born Aegides.

Aegis Dragons are the second limited-release dragon to receive a Breed Specific Action, following Vampire Dragons. The standard blue Aegis can perform the Enrage action if a user has killed eggs, hatchlings, or dragons on their scroll. The action causes the Aegis's appearance to change to its black and brown "enraged" form. In the "enraged" form, the dragon's action changes to Pacify. Once there are no killed eggs, hatchlings, or dragons on the user's scroll, the action becomes available and the Aegis can be returned to their original white and blue coloration.

A wintry chill swirls just beneath the surface of this egg.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s very festively colored.

And look! It's grown a dense mane! It must be close to maturing.


Holiday dragons are a very mysterious breed. They are only seen during winter, and even then it is hard to catch a glimpse of one. They are responsible for the general cheer that spreads during the holidays. In essence, they are the “Spirits of Winter.”

Additional information[]

Aegis concept art.gif
Aegis Dragon

Aegis Dragons are benevolent, gentle dragons.
They have the ability to fly using magic.
They're fairly large, about the size of an adult elephant when fully grown.
They have short, fine fur covering their bodies.
Their fur and manes are pillowy-soft, like down.

Due to their kind nature, they can't stand seeing something wrong happen.
Being naughty with an Aegis nearby is never a good thing, because that will set one off into a rage that's hard to quell... so make sure to be nice, okay? Not everything is always as it seems.

In the presence of naughty behavior, the normally-gentle Aegis flies into an uncontrollable rage.
When enraged, the Aegis dragon smells distinctly of charred earth.
His eyes glow bright red with bloodwrath, and his talons grow long and hooked.
His mane is an untamed, coarse, twiggy mess.
Enraged Aegis dragons will hunt down the object of their anger with destructive intent until the wrongdoer either repents or is killed.
They will remain enraged until such time as someone manages to pacify them.

  • Many users at first mistook the design for being Eastern in nature- one of the artists clarified this:
They're like Magmas! Not easterns at all. ovo
