Here is what I understand: Firewyrms: are creatures that breathe fire but have no wings and are possibly related to dragons. They can bore through rock, soil, and stone. “Possibly responsible for the 14 Flames of old Valyria”. P.S. There is an episode of Star Trek where they arrive on a mining colony and encounter a creature (silicon-based) that is responsible for the rock boring. BTW..it’s called “The Devil in the Dark”. Wyverns: are species of animal that lives in Sothoryos, kin to dragons, although they do not breathe fire. Wyverns have great leathery wings, "cruel" beaks, and an insatiable hunger. They are more ferocious than dragons, if smaller in size. Dragons: are magical flying reptilian creatures, which existed on the continents of Westeros and Essos, but were considered to have been extinct for almost one hundred and fifty years. Am I missing something, or do these three definitions seem to point away from each other? In other words, how do we have dragons flying around, and possibly wyverns (or firewyrms) responsible for the fall of Valyria? I thought wyverns are to dragons like crows are to ravens or coyotes are to wolves. They belong to the same genus - very similar, but smaller, and I think wyvern may have 4 legs while dragons have 2. As for the fall of Valyria, the Doom sounds volcanic in nature, but sort of like natural occurring events credited to magic. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
