Deep dragons' black-and-gray hide is smooth [have] fungi … around the head and neck. Their wings are attached to their front legs and can fold in close to the body, allowing [them to] maneuver through relatively narrow tunnels.

Deep dragons often hoard secrets … seek out new insights and tricks … they are willing to bargain for knowledge they lack.

Deep Dragon's Lair
