A figure of such mythic proportions, that no one is truly sure whether only one Dragon Turtle exists or whether there is a whole species of them. No one who has claimed to kill a Dragon Turtle has ever brought a carcass back to shore to prove it, and no ship has ever spotted more than one together. However, this only raises more questions. If there is only one Dragon Turtle, how did it came to be? Is it the last remaining member of a long forgotten species? Was it created specifically by the gods or some aetheric power? What is it, and what does it want?
Unfortunately, the Dragon Turtle is of no help with these mysteries. As mindless a beast as all others, it doesn’t communicate with any ship that spies it on the deep ocean, yet neither does it attack unprovoked. The Dragon Turtle seems to be more than happy enough to continue on its unbending voyage across the world’s oceans, and have even been reported to help ships in trouble by pushing them off sandbars and through ice sheets. It is a creature as gentle as the whales it dwarfs, yet it is covered in scars by all those who have tried to bring back the richest of all bounties. Whether some daring sailor will succeed one day, one can never tell, but one must always remember that the Dragon Turtle has destroyed far more ships than it has saved.
