In appearance, these dragons are brown by default, while also being the smallest in size. They have a large wing span, spines lining their backbone, and their tail ends in a spaded tip. Other than that, they sport a relatively rudimentary design, and are quite basic.
They are the weakest and most common breeds of dragon (though still powerful and hard to kill at early levels). They typically use Fire Breath, much like most other dragons, though they occasionally use Frost Breath as well. As per all dragon types, they can use jaw attacks, such as biting.
These dragons appear in-game simply with the title, "Dragon".
- On Akavir, the Tsaesci attempted to 'consume' the brown dragons, and drove the dragons to the Empire of Po Tun. This led to a war between the Ka'Po'Tuns and the Tsaesci. During that war, the Tsaesci killed most of the dragons. These dragons are now among the breeds appearing in Skyrim as a result of the return of Alduin.
- They start appearing in the world after killing Mirmulnir and completing the quest Dragon Rising.
- They are the weakest type of dragon. Strangely enough, Paarthurnax is just as weak.
- A brown dragon may be accompanied by another dragon, which can be very difficult to battle for a low level Dragonborn.
- When the Dragonborn absorbs a dragon's soul, the light the dragon's corpse generates can be seen from the world map.
This section contains bugs related to Brown Dragon. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
