Dragon Cave Wiki

Fanalea Dragons were released on May 21, 2022, alongside Thundersnow Dragons, Hooded Murkling Dragons, Furor Pygmies, Astralophyne Dragons, Pyrrhichios Dragons and Scourgekeeper Dragons as part of Dragon Cave's 16th birthday celebration.

Fanaleas have the Breed Specific Action Adventure. Through this action, the user may select up to six adult dragons from the same release to be sent on an adventure, attempting to ally a Scourgekeeper Dragon. If successful, an adult Scourgekeeper Dragon will be added to the user's scroll and the participating adventurers will "retire", making the BSA unavailable for those dragons. A failed adventure imposes a 14 day cooldown on the participating adventurers, after which they can attempt another adventure.

Official descriptions[]


This egg has delicate markings that curl around its shell.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It is watchful, and good at blending in with the foliage.

And look! Its wings and the plant sprouting from its back have grown! It must be close to maturing.


Fanalea Dragons are rarely seen. They move gracefully between the trees, and eat mainly fruits and seeds, though they do hunt meat during mating season and are excellent at tracking their prey over long distances. These dragons watch over their territories, and have incredible eyesight that allows them to spot threats from afar. Their unique defensive mechanism consists of the arrowlike barbed quills that grow on their tails, and the symbiotic, highly elastic vines they cultivate on their lower back and between their wingtips. By stretching the vine taut and hooking a single quill’s barb over it, then drawing it back, Fanaleas can shoot their quills like arrows over a considerable distance. The vines typically don’t hamper gliding or slow flight, and if the dragon needs to take off quickly, they can snap the vines and cultivate them back later. While usually secretive and somewhat aloof, Fanalea Dragons cannot stand injustice and suffering, and will venture out of their territory to assist others when they are truly needed. Their friendship and loyalty is hard to earn, but unbreakable.

Additional information[]

To help people better imagine the entire rpg party, I made silhouettes and the conceptors of each dragon gave me their sizes to compile into a size chart:

And with the giant Scourgekeeper, our big bad evil guy!
