I'm Moving!

OK, in case you don't know, my family and I are moving sometime in July to South Carolina, (we're currently in North Carolina). My dad's starting a new job, my brother's going back to public school and I'm going to a Catholic school after two years of homeschooling, all of which should be better then what's going on now, but wish us luck all the same. Any comments, questions, or the like, post them here.

Chinese Dragons continued

OK, here's a list of the 9 types of classical Chinese Dragons. I copied it from another website, and it may vary from site to site, but this one looked good, so here it is.

  1. Tianlong, the Celestial Dragons, are the celestial dragons who pull the chariots of the gods and guard their palaces.

  2. Shenlong, the Spiritual Dragons, control the wind and the rain.

  3. Fucanglong, the Dragons of Hidden Treasures, are underworld dragons which guard buried treasures, both natural and man-made. Volcanoes are said to be created when they burst out of the ground to report to heaven.

  4. Dilong, the Underground Dragons, are earth dragons whose task it is to preside over rivers and streams. According to some accounts, they are the female counterpart of the Shenlong and they fly only in order to mate.

  5. Yinglong, the Winged Dragons, are the oldest of all eastern dragons and the only kind with wings.

  6. Qiulong, the Horned Dragons, are considered to be the mightiest dragons.

  7. Panlong, the Coiling Dragons, are water dragons believed to mostly inhabit the lakes of the Orient.

  8. Huanglong, the Yellow Dragons, once emerged from the River Luo and presented the legendary Emperor Fu Hsi with the elements of writing. They are known for their scholarly knowledge.

  9. Lóng Wáng, the Dragon Kings, are rulers over each of the four seas, those of the east, south, west, and north. Although their true form is that of a dragon, they have the ability to shapeshift into human form. They live in crystal palaces guarded by shrimp soldiers and crab generals.

To have more then one source of information, here's another list of the types of Dragons, this one from Wikipedia.

 Tianlong (Chinese: 天龍; pinyin: tiānlóng; Wade-Giles: t'ien-lung; literally "heavenly dragon"), celestial dragon that guards heavenly palaces and pulls divine chariots                                                                                                                                                            Shenlong (Chinese: 神龍; pinyin: shénlóng; Wade-Giles: shen-lung; literally "god dragon"), thunder god that controls the weather, appearance of a human head, dragon's body, and drum-like stomach.

Fucanglong (Chinese: 伏藏龍; pinyin: fúcánglóng; Wade-Giles: fu-tsang-lung; literally "hidden treasure dragon"), underworld guardian of precious metals and

jewels, associated with volcanoes

Dilong (Chinese: 地龍; pinyin: dìlóng; Wade-Giles: ti-lung; literally "earth dragon"), controller of rivers and seas; also a name for earthworm

 Yinglong (Chinese: 應龍; pinyin: yìnglóng; Wade-Giles: ying-lung; literally "responding dragon"), winged dragon associated with rains and floods, used by

Huangdi to kill Chi You

 Jiaolong (Chinese: 蛟龍; pinyin: jiāolóng; Wade-Giles: chiao-lung; literally "crocodile dragon"), hornless or scaled dragon, leader of all aquatic animals                     Panlong (Chinese: 蟠龍; pinyin: pánlóng; Wade-Giles: p'an-lung; literally "coiled dragon"), lake dragon that has not ascended to heaven                                           Huanglong (Chinese: 黃龍; pinyin: huánglóng; Wade-Giles: huang-lung; literally "yellow dragon"), hornless dragon symbolizing the emperor                                                  Feilong (Chinese: 飛龍; pinyin: fēilóng; Wade-Giles: fei-lung; literally "flying dragon"), winged dragon that rides on clouds and mist; also a name for  pterosaur (compare Feilong kick and Fei Long character) Qinglong (Chinese: 青龍; pinyin: qīnglóng; Wade-Giles: ch'ing-lung; literally "Azure Dragon"), East one of the Four Symbols, mythological creatures in the Chinese constellations                                                                                                                                                                           Longwang (Chinese: 龍王; pinyin: lóngwáng; Wade-Giles: lung-wang; literally "Dragon Kings") divine rulers of the Four Seas                                                     Longma (Chinese: 龍馬; pinyin: lóngmǎ; Wade-Giles: lung-ma; literally "dragon horse"), emerged from the Luo River and revealed Bagua (concept) to Fu Xi

That list has more then 9 Dragons, but a lot of them are the same.

Here's a picture of a Chinese Dragon, since they look different from Eastern Dragons, the fire-breathing damsel-eating kind.


According to legend the pearl gives the Dragons their power and allows them to ascend to heaven, so many pictures of Chinese Dragons have them playing with a flaming pearl.

Dragons' bodies are said to be a composite of features from other animals, like the body of a snake, the antlers of a deer, the talons of an eagle, the soles of a tiger, the scales of a carp, and the eyes of a demon. It is also said that Dragons have 117 scales. Most Dragons are depicted with 4 toes, but in the traditional symbol of the Emperor, they have five toes. Japanese Dragons have only 3 toes.

There are 9 ways the Chinese Dragon is usually represented. Here's a list of the ways, copied from another website.

The first type is carved on the tops of bells and gongs, because of the beast's habit of calling loudly when attacked.

A second type is carved on the screws of fiddles, since most dragons are fond of music.

A third is carved on the tops of stone tablets, because of dragons' love of literature.

A fourth is found at the bottom of stone monuments, as dragons can support heavy weights.

A fifth is placed on the eaves of temples, as dragons are ever alert to danger.

A sixth occurs on the beams of bridges, since dragons are fond of water.

A seventh is carved on Buddha's throne, as dragons like to rest.

An eighth is placed on the hilts of swords, since dragons are known to be capable of slaughter.

The ninth is carved on prison gates, as these are dragons that are fond of quarreling and trouble making.

According to legend, some Dragons start life as a carp. The same legend speaks of a "Dragon Bridge", that when successfully jumped over by the carp, the carp turns into a fish-dragon. The saying "The carp has leaped through the Dragon's Gate," means success.

I think that covers most about Chinese Dragons, if you have any questions, or any information that you think is important and I forgot, just leave a comment.

P.S. Sorry about the strange fount thing up at the quote from Wikipedia, I don't know what's up with it.

Full info on the Phantom animals: Chinese Dragon

OK, in my bio I didn't go into great detail about the animals that White Phantom draws his power from, the Qilin, the Chinese Dragon, the Phoenix, and the Griffin. Well, here's some of the information that didn't get put in there.

In Chinese Mythology, the Dragon was the mightiest of all their animals. These Dragons weren't the fire breathing beasts that we think of today as Dragons. They were wise, revered, well, gods. OK, not exactly gods but very respected. In China, these Dragons were associated with water more then fire, and were associated with the weather as well. There were many Dragons, each with a different job. One guarded heavenly palaces and pulled divine chariots, another was the thunder god (this one is a god) who specifically controlled weather, one was the underworld guardian of valuable metals and treasures and was associated with volcanoes, one controlled rivers and seas, one was associated with rains and floods, one was the leader of all aquatic animals, one rode on clouds and mists, and, well, there's a lot, but if you search for Chinese Dragons you can probably find information that I didn't put up here.

Well, that's all for today. I might put more about the Chinese Dragon tomorrow, or go on to the Phoenix. We'll see. Thanks for checking my blog out.
