Several kinds of Dragons exist in the Krosmoz, and relatively little is known about them. All are extremely powerful and have the ability to lay eggs, called Dofus, if they fall in love. Just like Dragons, Dofus can belong to different categories.
Dragons have their own tongue and alphabet, and their names are, for the most part, particularly long and difficult to pronounce. In Wakfu season 1, episode 23, reversed French speech was used when Drill speaks in Draconic.
Eliatrope Dragons were born of the union of the goddess Eliatrope and the Great Dragon, along with their Eliatrope twins. There are six of them: Adamai, Baltazar, Efrim, Grougaloragran, Phaeris, Shinonome. In addition, each seems to also belong to one of the following three categories and is associated with an equivalent type of Dofus. For example, the Eliatrope Emerald Dofus is identical to the Primordial Emerald Dofus.
When these Dragons die, their Wakfu returns to the Dofus they hatched from until it is ready to hatch again. This can only happen if the Dragon's Eliatrope twin is also in the egg. This ability appears to be shared by other Dragons, although sources have only shown examples of Primordial ones reincarnating (see below).
Dragons of the Black Fire
Dragons of the Black Fire are descended from Ouronigride and include the first sons Grougalorasalar, Gargoylone and Celui dont on tait le nom (the one who shall not be named). They are associated with black magic and known for their violence and anger.
Dragons of the White Fire
Apart from Eliatrope Dragons and their ability to reincarnate from their Dofus alongside their twins, there exist a few other examples of Dragons accomplishing something similar. Found Fragments III, part of a series of books inside the Dofus MMORPG, mentions the following (emphasis ours): Template:Citation
While this reincarnation does not involve a Dofus, readers of the DOFUS Manga will also remember that Arty is a reincarnation of Ignemikhal, even though he took a human form at birth in the image of his adoptive father. Indeed, the primordial Crimson Dofus that Crail was guarding eventually hatched, and the official Krosmoz site confirms that he is Ignemikhal himself, and not his son.
The Wakfu OVAs also involve all six Primordial Dragons, while Dardondakal was killed by Hyrkul in the year 132, which would indicate that he has reincarnated in the meantime.
When Osamodas discovered the soon-to-be World of Ten, he was surrounded by his three Dragons: Ouronigride the black, Helioboros the white, and Spiritia the elemental Dragon. The three are responsible for creating new life on the planet and breathing magic into it, and they sit at the top of the family tree of all other Dragons in the World of Twelve. This story can be found in the Dofus MMO books Found Fragment I and III, as well as in the Dofus Artbook Session 2.
