A wyvern is a ferocious creature which may be similar to a dragon. Wyverns from European legends have a dragon's head, reptilian body, two legs (sometimes none), and a barbed tail.

Wyvern Point in northern Sothoryos is named after the creature, which hunts above its swamps and jungles.[1] Septon Barth wrote about them in Dragons, Wyrms, and Wyverns: Their Unnatural History.[2] The sigil of House Vyrwel of Darkdell depicts a wyvern. The castle of Dragonstone includes wyverns among its stone gargoyles.[3][4]
