Lore[edit | edit source]

Dragon whelps of all color are a commonly seen mob in World of Warcraft

From Wowpedia:

Dragon whelp (aka dragon whelplings, dragonlings, or broodlings) are the smallest members of the dragonkin species. They are the youngest and weakest variation of dragons adventurers face. In most cases however, where there are whelps, their larger cousins are close by.
