Purebred ocean dragons are entirely aquatic and all of them are equipped with gills to allow them to live an underwater life. If they have legs, they tend to be small and stubby compared to their eel-like bodies. Flippers or fins are far more common. Some of their snouts have long, tapered mouths with small teeth for snapping up prey. The smallest of them are little larger than a human, while the largest can be over 30 meters long. These leviathans rival or match the size of Earth dragons.
Default traits – Aquatic Limbs/Amphibious Limbs, Wyrm, Aquatic Snout, Aquatic Tail, Wingless, Finned Crest, Smooth Scales
Ocean dragons seek out those who exhibit dedication, compassion, or lust. The larger they get, the more power they can impart to their Riders. Most riders will gain the ability to sense oncoming storms or bad water conditions. Larger dragons can impart a better lung capacity for water diving. The largest dragons can impart advanced prescience, convert their Rider’s lungs to a gill-like system, and grant them the ability to withstand a wide range of pressure. These Ocean Riders are referred to as leviathan riders and many of them take up an aquatic lifestyle if they do not already have one. They are quite capable of telepathy to keep in touch with land dwellers.
Known Rider Attributes:
- History nerd
*Riders never have all attributes at the same time.
Ocean magic is based less on the strength of the dragon and more on the strength of others. They can manipulate and generate the element of water with skill, of course, but they also support those around them both physically and mentally. They can directly assist their Riders and a few others by providing a bit of water breathing. In time, water breathing becomes a passive skill for their Rider. They can quickly melt into water and travel vast distances to carry messages or witness events. They excel in casting blessings and healing spells upon others. They can instantly heal their Riders or cast a spell that improves their health over time. If a person comes to them with a malady or curse, they can quickly dispel it.
At the same time, the magic of these dragons can be quite abstract. Ocean dragons with any level of magic will be able to sense catastrophe before it happens. The stronger a dragon is, the more clear that danger becomes, and the more time they have before it strikes. Masters of Ocean magic will be able to see visions of the future, even without catastrophe involved. They can project their soul across the vast ocean of space in order to witness events far from their bodies. They can calm others so well that they can induce a slumber, and from there, they can manipulate dreams. Dreamwalking allows them to more clearly see the future of an individual, though the subject will generally notice if someone else is inhabiting their mind.
On top of the general Tier IV magic effects, your dragon can have these traits. This is only available to dragons with Tier IV Ocean magic or Elemental Anomaly. Feel free to get creative and use things outside of this list. Note: Blood is unrelated to the Ocean element. It is a Dark element magic trait.

- Coral, seashells, and sea life following it around or living on it.
