I recently had a conversation with Mr. E, one of the Elves of Fyn, about dragons and I know many of you are interested in them so the here is that interview below, I hope you enjoy it! –Natalie
NL: Can you give me some general information about dragons?
Mr E: Dragon’s are extremely clever and can outsmart just about anyone or anything, including elves.
They live in the faery realm and are somewhat aloof, preferring the company of other dragons rather than socializing with other types of beings. Certainly, there are dragon’s who have their own agenda and decide to live alone but usually dragons like to hang around other dragons–mostly family.
They are territorial, you know, so they tend to want their own space and their own things to themselves and you will usually find them only sharing their territory with their mate and their family. They occasionally like to mingle with dragons in other territories but they spend most of their time in their own territories.
NL: Many humans seem to be fascinated with them and want to connect with them, is that something that they will do?
Mr E: I would say there would be a reason for it because they have a vast intelligence.
NL: Would they reach out to humans?
Mr E: They can but they will pick and choose and it has to suit them for their purposes and for what information they want out there.
NL: What would their motivation be?
Mr E: Well, there is a grand motivation for all of us – save the earth.
NL: So they are on the side of the eight?
Mr E: There are good ones and bad ones, the good ones on our side and the bad ones on the unseelie side, of course. So, it’s like “clash of the dragons.”
NL: What can humans expect to get from a relationship with a dragon?
Mr E: They have a vast amount of knowledge.
NL: What type of things do they know?
Mr E: They know everything. They have supernatural abilities that would just blow your mind. You know, instead of having people that can just read your mind, they can read everything and they will know you entirely within seconds.
NL: In the legends that I have read concerning dragons, the human hero is attempting to mat wits and they often have to resort to some type of trickery to win.
Mr E: They will beat you every time because they know more than you do. They will tell you things that make you go “oh my god” They are almost like the god-head of intelligence. They are very, very, very, intelligent. Their sensories (sensing abilities) are just out of this world. Every scale on their body picks up information from everywhere around them. It’s like a sensory overload if you are a human. It’s as if you could touch a piece of wood and know what forest it was living in, how many years it lived, what it’s feeling were before it died. For example, see this piece of metal here? A dragon could tell you how it was made, what it is made of, what it was used for and who touched it last.
NL: Do you interact with dragons?
Mr E: Well, I go to them every once in a while to ask them a question or two about something. When you are feeling upset and confused–exasperated–you go to the dragon and it will say “Oh, you do this and that and the other thing,” and it solves your problem. They will help you out because they are concerned about the earth too. The dark dragons don’t care to help of course,
NL: Do they speak out loud?
Mr E: Some can, others use telepathy
NL: Is it true that they are obsessed with jewels and treasure?
Mr E: Oh yes, they love shiny things. They take the elven/fairy love of shiny things to an extreme where they have their hoard of shiny things. It’s just one of the little things that they do. And sometimes, they don’t like humankind to have these things because it corrupts them. That’s just a couple of reasons but there are probably lots of reasons why they do what they do!
NL: Could you go into meditation and go into the faery realm and look for a dragon to communicate with there?
Mr E: You could, you could try that but you have to make sure that you have the right one.
NL: How do you know?
Mr E: Well you don’t go looking for any black dragons…
NL: Is it really just color?
Mr E: It’s more than that, its because of what they are, their color becomes them. Their energy is black.
NL: So a white dragon would be a good one to work with…
Mr E: Yes, or a green one, green is good to work with. Even red dragons seem to be all right but they seem to be a bit more moody than the other ones.
NL: Is that all the colors?
Mr E: There is a purple dragon. Sometimes their skin is irridescent and they can change their color like a chameleon and they can camouflage themselves. In a bright light, the irridescence almost sparkles and shows multi colors like some birds do.
NL: Do dragon’s actually breathe fire?
Mr E: Oh yes, it has something to do with a chemical their body produces and when this substance hits oxygen, it comes out as fire. They can control this but sometimes, like with a sneeze, it just happens to come out.
NL: What are some of the dragon’s teachings besides wisdom?
Mr E: Strength, because there is nothing that can defeat a dragon unless you know where their vulnerable soft spot is and each one is different. Before you can discover its weakness, you have to get to know the dragon and even then it’s not an easy thing to discover. However some of them can be overconfident and arrogant because they are so intelligent and powerful and because, except for other dragons, they rarely if ever come across anything that is threatening to them.
NL: Well, were they ever in our world? Because if they were, humans obviously found a way to handle them.
Mr E: Yes, humans did finally find a way to elimnate the dragons and that is why they left your world and came back to our world where they remain to this day
