The green dragonflight was, until recently, one of the few that still flourished. It was only recently that disaster struck: green dragons, clearly insane due to some sort of corruption, appeared on Azeroth. A dark and corruptive force seems to have arisen in the Emerald Dream. While the strongest of the green dragons seek the answer to this mystery, typical green drakes — the average adults of the flight — try their best simply to maintain order and keep themselves and their young alive and well. A look of sadness and pain is clear on the features of this majestic beast. It appears to be struggling with something inside itself, something threatening its very essence. The creature’s once-brilliant scales have dimmed to a forest green.

Green dragons avoid combat, preferring to use incapacitating magic or their breath weapons to stop their foes. If pushed, however, they fight to the best of their abilities, using quick thinking and their magical prowess to outwit and outmaneuver their foes. Unlike most dragons, greens call upon the power of nature for their magic, and this gives them one major advantage: healing magic. If necessary, a green drake wears down her opponent, then flies away briefly to heal before reengaging. In battles with allies, such as other dragons, a few green drakes often stay back to heal their group and use beneficial spell-like abilities.

Green drakes speak Common, Darnassian, and Draconic. Some speak other languages as well.[1]
