A shiver passed through the assembled ranks. One by one they turned their heads and then stood paralyzed at the sight behind them. A creature of immense size and obvious strength perched upon the peak. It lifted its snout and released a jet of blistering white fire, punctuated at the end with a bone-rattling roar. And then it spread golden wings behind it, and stood proudly. A Dragon. The last of its kind.
