I used the "celestrial dragon" to avoid confusion instead of stating=20
corrupted dragon, because that could be read as corrupted dragon person.=20
etc. The tainted dragon was indeed the air dragon. All elememntal dragons=
are celestrial dragons, their manifestation as dragon of air, dragon of=20
fire, etc is due to the celestrial duty they uphold. There is one specifi=
celetrial dragon, who tasked with guarding the pillars of heaven, the oth=
"lesser dragons" are the ones that take on the form of elemental dragons.
elemental dragons are one in the same as celestrial dragons, until you ar=
talking about *the* prime celestrial dragon itself. Damn things are annoy=
when they all use the same titles.
>Pardon me, just a minor storyline point:
