Dragons can be found in almost all religions and cultures around the world where they often held major spiritual significance. In many Asian cultures dragons are still revered as representative of the primal forces of nature, religion and the universe. They are commonly said to possess some form of magic or other supernatural power, and are often associated with wells, rain, and rivers. In some cultures, they are also said to talk like humans, be wiser and live longer. The persistance of the dragon is a proof that it is not only a popular monster but also a true archetype.
