Dragon Knight minimap icon.png Davion, the Dragon Knight
After years on the trail of a legendary Eldwurm, the Knight Davion found himself facing a disappointing foe: the dreaded Slyrak had grown ancient and frail, its wings tattered, its few remaining scales stricken with scale-rot, its fangs ground to nubs, and its fire-gouts no more threatening than a pack of wet matchsticks.

Seeing no honor to be gained in dragon-murder, Knight Davion prepared to turn away and leave his old foe to die in peace. But a voice crept into his thoughts, and Slyrak gave a whispered plea that Davion might honor him with death in combat. Davion agreed, and found himself rewarded beyond expectation for his act of mercy: As he sank his blade in Slyrak's breast, the dragon pierced Davion's throat with a talon. As their blood mingled, Slyrak sent his power out along the Blood Route, sending all its strength and centuries of wisdom to the knight. The dragon's death sealed their bond and Dragon Knight was born. The ancient power slumbers in the Dragon Knight Davion, waking when he calls it. Or perhaps it is the Dragon that calls the Knight…

  • Prior to slaying Slyrak, Davion also slew Uldorak, another dragon who threatened the kingdom of Candoness. In doing so, he earned the gratitude of their king, Tansis XIII.[1]
  • Davion may have also slain the Crimson Wyvern, though this is never explicitly stated.[2]
  • Davion owns Dragonmaw, one of the Named Swords.[3]
  • Much of Davion's armor is constructed from parts of slain dragons.
  • According to Sylla, Davion is a member of the Dragon Clan, although he may not know it.[4]
  • Davion is not the only human to have mixed blood with a dragon, although he is one of the few whose mingling resulted in the ability to manifest ancestral dragon strains.[5]
  • The Archronicus implies that Davion belongs to an obscure and ancient order known as the Scaled Knights of Uthorian, since he bears a shield similar to the one that Thesos recovered from the remains of a dragon's stomach.[6]

DOTA: Dragon's Blood[]

Davion is one of the main protagonists of the animated series. Most of his background and lore has been changed to fit the narrative, such as his fateful encounter with Slyrak and the order of knights that he belongs to, but his identity as the Dragon Knight mostly remains unchanged.
