Dragon Breed Data
|Breed Name:||Sui Riu|
|Special Abilities:||Water spitter|
The Sui Riu breed was once believed to be able to summon a thunderstorm. In reality, its ability is to swallow large amounts of water and store it. When necessary, the Sui Riu can then expel the water later in violent gusts. This ability is particularly useful against fire breather dragons.
Sir Edward Howe has examined and written about this breed.
Origin Of Name?
In Japanese mythology, the Sui Riu was a dragon king that commanded rain, meaning it was sometimes known as the "rain dragon". When in pain, it caused the rain to be coloured red. It was one of several "Dragon Kings", including Ka-Riu, Han-Riu, Ri-Riu, Fuku Riu & Hai-riyo. Because the two known Japanese dragon breeds use these names, it could be assumed that the other names are as yet unseen breeds.
