The occurrence of dragons in the written and oral history of cultures around the world is fascinating. People separated by thousands of miles at a time in human history when global travel did not exist were often speaking of similar beasts, even if the appearance of the creatures varied from one culture to another.
However, there were differences over the centuries in how these different cultures viewed dragons. Western cultures in Europe often saw dragons as bringers of death, creatures that could breathe fire and destroy towns and villages on a whim. In the Near East, dragons became associated with the elements. In particular, Chinese culture associated the dragon with rain and the ability to bring life-saving water.
