And no. Dragons did not evolve from anything. They were created by the Dragonkin.

Created from what...?




...Perhaps the Dragonkin brought dinosaurs with them to Gielinor to experiment on, and used them to create the first dragons.

So regardless of how dinosaurs arrived on Gielinor, dragons did 'evolve' from them, even if that evolution was forced by the dragonkin.

That would explain the similar characteristics between dragons and the traditional (non-feathered) depictions of dinosaurs. (Something the developers would surely have to be mindful of when designing the new Island's inhabitants, even if that is a clichéd boring trope.)

(Mainly aimed at Just Me Em)

But remember, as has been pointed out, dragons were created through a process of experimentation. So they did not evolve gradually through a natural, Darwinian progression, but something more akin to gene-splicing. As such dragons would be neither dragonkin nor dinosaur (or whatever these 'giant mindless reptiles' turn out to be), but would combine characteristics from both progenitor species.


This could include a generic quadruped dinosaur/reptilian skeletal structure, but with the addition of dragonkin wings and facial features.
