Dragon Deities?

Abstract_Dragon_by_livingrope

The following list(s) of Dragon deities appears in numerous places on the internet, including Facebook which is where I have seen the most recent version. Depending on where you find it, there is extra information added for some of the Dragon deity names …or not. The problem I have with this list is that I cannot trace the original source of the information. The closest I can get to the “origin” is in the BOS  section of the Thorn’s Meadow website where the list of names is preceded by an author’s statement about how the information was obtained …direct from the Dragons it seems:

The Dragon names listed here were departed unto me by DragonKind, one of my dearest attendant dragons, my friend…my soul mate.

However, Lady Thorn of Thorns Meadow is not the author of the list and she has acknowledged her source of the information as another site – Dragonfyre Weyr – but unfortunately that’s where the trail ends as the information is no longer on that website …I read every Dragon-related page there to be certain. 😦

I did also find a slightly longer version of the statement of origin reproduced on two other postings of this list, both at Shroomery, posted in 2004 and 2005 and acknowledging the newer website Elswet’s Dragonsfyre Weyr which no longer exists, as the source:

The Dragon names listed here were departed unto this man by a dragon god named DragonKind, “one of my dearest attendant dragons, my friend…my soul mate.”

I guess the good thing is that none of these names appear in the extensive lists of Dungeons & Dragons deities or World of Warcraft ‘Dragon Aspects’  or Dragon Age Old Gods that I have been able to find. I also looked in D.J. Conway’s books, and I can’t find them in her lists of Dragon names either and I don’t remember seeing them in any other works on Dragon magick or mythology. However, Gneicht and Davliteau are introduced as Dragon god “characters” in chapter 3 of a Fanfiction story called The Dragon Swordsman (although Davliteau is spelled as Davilteau) …maybe the author was inspired by the list of Dragon deity names?

Regardless of where this list originated I suppose there are some people calling on these deities in their magickal practice. Even if these entities never existed before they probably do now, especially if enough people have been putting their energy into creating each thoughtform …but, if they are truly ancient Dragon deities that I just didn’t know about, well then I really do owe them an apology for my ignorance, with no disrespect intended.

Anyway, here first is what might be the earliest version of the list that I could find, from the older styled website Thorn’s Meadow  which was copied from Dragonsfyre Weyr (a free hosted website that looks equally dated, and whose “premium” website on paid hosting no longer exists)  followed by another version from a newer styled website Wicca Dreamers – Draconic Wicca,  where the author does not cite the source of the information.

1. The following list comes from  Dragonfyre Weyr via Thorn’s Meadow.

Dragon Deities

The Dragon names listed here were departed unto me by DragonKind, one of my dearest attendant dragons, my friend…my soul mate.

Gneicht…(nyte, long I) Dragon God of the Night, of doorways (both opening and closing them) and opportunities.

Veaug…(vog) Dragon god of obscurity and that which is hidden; does not like assisting in hiding actions or objects.

Morthan…(moor’-z’dan) Dragon Goddess of bountiful harvests of all kinds; mother aspect of Dragonkind.

Luqueas…(luk-wee-ass, long U, long E) Dragon trickster God; take great care when inviting His presence.

Tysteal…(tiss’-dell) Dragon shephard Goddess; guardian of the meek; a dragon person’s first line of defense.

Mordak…(moo-ór-dak) Dragon God of war, vengeance and retributions of all kinds; make dead certain that you are within your magickal rights before calling Him down, as he is not amused by a fallacious summons.

Davliteau…(dav-lí-too) Dragon God of conjured entities; very helpful in ridding one’s self of “sent” conjurations and the like; benevolent to the core; very helpful and willing attendant being, though He has little power in other areas.

Ryusan…(rí-u-san, long I, long U) Translates literally to “my dragon.” The sex of this Dragon deity is unknown to me; although I feel a definite feminine presence when it is near me, there are many male attributes present as well. Ryusan, of the three-headed Japanese variety, is best at consoling and nurturing a hurt spirit, whether it be in a host body or not. Ryusan has escorted several spirits on to their next journey for me. I am not sure what else this deity can/will do, but I do know that Ryusan can not contact those who have passed on, as I have attempted to acquire Ryusan’s assistance in that area to no avail, though I have received great comfort from Ryusan over the years.

Ouida…(o-weed’-a, long O, soft a) She often assists me when I am in need of direction. I do not know what She governs, or what aspects She controls, but She has proven Herself invaluable in the area of guidance.

Solange…(so-londg’) Dragon deity of healing. Though Dragons rarely become involved in human affairs, Solange cares about those who care for others. He will lend a healing touch to any beneficial healing spell, but there is a price for His assistance. He requires the planting of fruit trees (three at the least and 9 at the most) for his services. He will also attend to your herb garden and bless it with His dragon power.

2. The following list comes from Wicca Dreamers – Draconic Wicca.

Dragon Deities

Dragon God Gneicht
Gneicht is the ruler of the Night… of doorways (both opening and closing them)
As a guide his visit speaks of opportunities, both taken and missed, depending on the type of message he brings you…

Morthan (moor’-z’dan)
Dragon Goddess of bountiful harvests of all kinds; Mother aspect of Dragonkind. Nurturing, Protective and Generous…
Call on Morthan when in need of emotional support or financial assistance.

Veaug (vog)
Dragon God of obscurity and that which is hidden; does not like assisting in hiding actions or objects. This dragon is adept at finding things from the Ancients that have been lost in obscurity (old tomes, amulets, magickal items) His assistance can further the summoners knowledge greatly, but he is easily angered, be sure that the item you seek is worth his time before calling upon him…

Luqueas (luk-wee-ass, long U, long E)
Dragon trickster God; take great care when inviting His presence. He is a joker, a wild card. His action are not always in the best interest of the summoner. He is like a politician, he can talk circles around most people & beings, but his words are not always truthful. He can be a strong ally… If you are careful.

Tysteal (tiss’-dell)
Dragon shephard Goddess; guardian of the meek; a dragon person’s first line of defense.
Call upon Tysteal when in need of Protection.

Mordak (moo-ór-dak)
Dragon God of war, vengeance and retributions of all kinds; make dead certain that you are within your magickal rights before calling Him down, as he is not amused by a fallacious summons.

Davliteau (dav-lí-too)
Dragon God of conjured entities; very helpful in ridding one’s self of “sent” conjurations and the like; benevolent to the core; very helpful and willing attendant being, though He has little power in other areas. He acts as a protector from other Beings or Dragons who are sent to harass or harm you. He can be called upon when you are having trouble controlling one of the lesser Beings.

Ouida (o-weed’-a, long O, soft a)
Dragon Goddess of guidance.
Call upon Ouida when you are uncertain of your Path, if you are unsure of which life-choice to make. She can help with decisions about finances, marriage, carrier choices, etc.
She is one who stands in the Doorway of Time, Looking both ways at once.

Solange (so-londg’)
Dragon deity of healing. Though Dragons rarely become involved in human affairs, Solange cares about those who care for others. He will lend a healing touch to any beneficial healing spell, but there is a price for His assistance. He requires the planting of fruit trees (three at the least and 9 at the most) for his services. He will also attend to your herb garden and bless it with His dragon power.

Ryusan (rí-u-san, long I, long U)
Translates literally to “my dragon.”  Ryusan, of the three-headed Japanese variety, is best at consoling and nurturing a hurt spirit, whether it be in a host body or not. Ryusan is an expert at guiding spirits on to their next journey. Ryusan can contact those who have passed on. He is a Guardian of the Veil and stand between our realm and the realm beyond. This is the Dragon you would call upon with assistance in Divination.

As you can see by comparing the 2 lists, the information has “evolved”. There is also a shortened list circulating Facebook Dragon groups where someone has copied and pasted only the first 6 of the 10 names on the list :::sigh::: …always check and double check the source of anything you read on the internet if you’re going to use that information in any way whatsoever. And if you do copy and paste it somewhere please ALWAYS cite your references!

    Ummu Hubur “Mother of dragons” Babylonian/ Summerian. Enuma Eligish [hope i spelled it right] ancient story of creation.
    She was slain by Marduk and her body was used to create the heavens and the earth.
    Mainly refered to as Tiamat. (Not the DND version).

    I haven’t forgotten the classic Dragon deities. The Enuma Elish, Tiamat, Marduk and other Dragon deities are mentioned here in other posts/pages on Dragon Dreaming. The reason I wrote this blog post was because these particular Dragon deities didn’t seem to be part of any classical mythology so I was wondering where the list of names came from in the first place, especially as so many people have copied/pasted and spread it around the internet without citing any source for it. 🙂

    Yeah! I have these deities written in my journal; I found it at a website a while back. I thought it was interesting, so I wrote them down; though, I am always trying to find out how to call on these deities. No one has ever told me how. If anyone knows how to call on deities, it would be nice to know. If I would’ve known you were searching for this, I’d probably give you the information I found on one site. It said the same thing as the second version from Wicca Dreamers. I actually think that it’s from the book entitled ‘Enchantment of the Faerie Realm’ by Ted Andrews. Though, I’ve never read it before, so I wouldn’t know if it did come from it or not. I guess it could be a theory, though. If not, then I honestly wonder where it had come from; and, how it got here.
