Vanilla WoW Wiki

Dragonkin (aka dragon type)[citation needed] are all creatures descended from and including dragons. A dragon is a reptilian creature, usually winged, with magical or unusual abilities.[citation needed] Sometimes refers specifically to a type of creature closely related to a dragon, but usually lacking wings or full dragon abilities, powers, and spells. Nearly all dragonkin belong to one of the main or lesser dragonflights.
