Rift dragons are the species of planar dragons native to the Abyss.[1]

Kyra and Merisiel fight a rift dragon in Elysium.


Rift dragons have dark scales and massive claws. Foul-smelling acid drips from their saber teeth.[1]


Rift dragons leave behind ruins wherever they go, and often intimidate humanoids into worshipping them as demigods of destruction. They usually migrate to the Material Plane at a young age, only returning to the Abyss when they grow old to rule over realms of their own.[1][2]
