Naturally enhanced movement speed

Wyverns are distinctly different from wyrm and dragon in both behavior and appearance. Wyverns are much smaller in size, tend to be gold in color, and have very good sight; wyverns can see in front of them and from the side for a very long distance. The notable difference between a wyvern and a wyrm is the fact wyverns rarely fly.

Historical Background

A wyvern (or wivern) is a winged reptilian legendary creature often found in medieval heraldry. Its usual blazon is statant (standing). The wyvern is similar to a European dragon (wyrm), but it differs in that it has only two legs (thus making it rather bird-like), cannot breathe fire, and has a barbed or snake-like tail. Occasionally, it is said to be smaller than a dragon or to be able to breathe fire. The wyvern is similar to another mythical creature, the cockatrice, which is similar to the basilisk. Its sounds are similar to the tone of a whistle or flute.
