Some of the most feared and loathed creatures of the Stoican Frontier are the dreaded Northern Goose-Dragons, referred to as Drageese. These terrifying creatures seem to combine the worst parts of their shared heritage, boasting all of the rapacious greed of dragonkind, coupled with the ill-tempered and angry streak of the common goose. It is exceptionally rare for an adventuring party that comes across one of these creatures to come back in one piece, as these creatures tend to kill all who approach their nesting grounds too closely.
While more bestial than other dragons, Northern Drageese retain a love of riches, evident in their collection of baubles and trinkets. Those lucky few adventurers brave or foolish enough to challenge a Dragoose and emerge triumphant report that their hordes are full of all manner of glistening baubles. Many are of little value, such as suits of armor or particularly shiny pieces of clothing or machinery, but others can fetch quite the price. The most foolhardy or desperate trappers sometimes use these dragons' love of all that glitters in an attempt to draw the creatures out, obtaining shining items and using them as bait for the dragon.
Drageese are infamously ill-tempered, and take any incursion on their territory as a personal offense. When a creature enters a Dragoose's territory, its life is forfeit. The Navadi people have a particular hatred of Drageese because they do not consume those that they slay. These Dragons subsist on a diet of only fish and other aquatic life, and leave other creatures that they kill scattered around their territory as warnings to others who may be foolish enough to venture onto their lands.
Drageese are easily set apart from other dragons not only by their appearance, but also from the exceptionally loud honking noise that they are capable of creating. This sound is so loud that it can be heard from miles around, and is often used to stun or outright kill the Dragoose's prey or to disorient and disable its opponents. Most of the many corpses scattered across a Dragoose's territory are marked by blood-stained ears from shattered eardrums.
Early trappers were foolhardy enough to attempt the domestication of a dragoose hatchling they had found as an egg. Early attempts seemed marginally successful, but it quickly became apparent that the creature was a danger to all around it. It was surmised that these creatures' tempers grow worse and worse as they age, and their wild streak is not one to be tamed. After a number of accidents and an incident resulting in the death of two of the creature's caretakers, the young Dragosling had to be put down, and the ill-concienved ideal of the domestication of these creatures was deemed impossible.
