ancient China, dragons did not breathe fire. They were wise and caring and
guarded the wind, the rain, the rivers, precious metals and germs. Legend
says that the farther Dragons travel from their home in China, the more
toes they lose. This is why the Chinese Dragon has five toes, the Korean
Dragon has four toes and the Japanese Dragon has three. Fortunately, when
wandering dragons return home to China, all their missing toes grow back.

dragons ever wander very far from home.
