The ability to use the abilities of Asian Dragons. Variation of Dragon Physiology.

Also Called

  • Chinese Dragon Mimicry/Physiology
  • Eastern Dragon Mimicry/Physiology
  • Oriental Dragon Mimicry/Physiology


The user is or has the ability to take on the form of Asian Dragon typically portrayed as long, scaled, wingless serpentine creatures with four legs with features of several (traditionally nine) different animals.

They symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricanes, and floods, and are also symbols of power, strength, and good luck. They also have an extended range of supernatural powers, changing size or form (most are able to take human shape), fly among the clouds or hide in water, form clouds, turn into water, change color as an ability to blend in with their surroundings as an effective form of camouflage or glow in the dark.

Unlike western dragons, oriental dragons are usually part of spirit-community (if they aren't spirits themselves), either living with others of their kind and/or with a court of spirits. They have close connection to Celestial authorities and have often their own fiefdoms to govern, typically a river, lake, or other body of water.
