|The Black Swan Dragon is every bit as graceful and elegant as any other dragon, yet many fail to see its beauty. Black Swan Dragons were often looked upon with scorn by ancient Caretakers, as the birth of a Black Swan Dragon was thought to be an ill omen.
||Back in medieval times, when dragons still roamed the lands with humans, the gifting of dragons to kings and lords was commonplace and considered to be a sign of great respect. However, when ancient lords were gifted a Black Swan Dragon, it was a sign of disrespect. Gifting someone a Black Swan Dragon was construed the same as wishing them ill.
|One reason for misunderstandings surrounding the Black Swan Dragon is the dragon's knack for finding trouble. Black Swan Dragons are innately drawn to areas of ill fortune - to battlefields after a fierce skirmish or to areas afflicted with disease and plague. Dragon Caretakers and scientists are puzzled as to why this is the case.
||Whatever the omens surrounding it, no one has been able to look upon an Epic Black Swan Dragon with anything less than reverence and admiration. Even kings who once were frightened or bothered by their Black Swan Dragons swooned as they gazed upon their Epic form. They fly with such dignity and grace that it is hard to look upon for very long.
