Literature

A Dragon Called Lagi

Simply the author's own take on Episode 1 of Panzer Dragoon Orta. This short one-shot is meant to depict the relationship between the dragon, Lagi, and its rider, Orta. (complete)

Attached Dragon Mind Theory

Could the dragon's mind have attached itself to the dragon program in order to survive the length of all four games? This theory discusses how and why Lagi could have survived in such a fashion.

Could the Dragon Be a Gun Producing Factory?

More speculation about the origins of Orta's gun. In this article, KBlack discusses the possibility that the dragon's body itself may have been designed to create other types of biological weapons, such as the gun.

Different Dragons Theory

It is commonly thought that the dragon had the same physical body in all four Panzer Dragoon games. But what if the Heresy Program controlled different bodies in each game (with the exception of Panzer Dragoon Orta)?

Dragon Development Theory

A theory that examines the dragon forms that the dragon morphes into in Panzer Dragoon Orta and how assimilating other creatures helps shape these forms.

Edge's Dragon

Glide

Heretic Birth Theory

Could there be more to the green light the villagers of Elpis saw than meets the eye? It's hard not to wonder where their belief originated, and when. This theory argues that the Heresy Dragon Program scattered his essence in multiple coolias.

Single Physical Dragon Theory

Was the dragon different in each of the Panzer Dragoon games, or was it the same dragon in all four Panzer Dragoon games? Here we try to prove that the dragon was the same physical creature from Panzer Dragoon Zwei to Panzer Dragoon Orta.

The Heresy Dragon and the Mind-Body Problem

Are the mind and body the same thing, or are they two parts of a whole? This question is discussed in relation to the multiple identities of the Heresy Dragon.

The Mystery of the Emerald Dragon

Robert Frazer discusses an early build of Panzer Dragoon. Disclaimer: some facts in this article have been disputed and may be inaccurate.

Wings of a Dragon

Where will destiny take you on the back of a dragon when its wings fly you into the unknown? Perhaps it's best we never know, for it makes destiny our own.
