A golden wyvern is like a regular wyvern but with bling-bling I guess :P
I hope you like it :)

LETS WIKIATTACK!!

A wyvern (/ˈwaɪvərn/ WI-vərn, sometimes spelled wivern) is a legendary creature with a dragon's head and wings, a reptilian body, two legs, and a tail often ending in a diamond- or arrow-shaped tip. A sea-dwelling variant dubbed the sea-wyvern has a fish tail in place of a barbed dragon's tail. The usual spelling wyvern is not attested before the seventeenth century as "winged two-footed dragon". It is an alteration of Middle English (attested thirteenth century) wyver, from Old French wivre (cf. French guivre and vouivre), itself from Latin vīpera, meaning 'viper', 'adder', 'asp'.

A golden wyvern is believed to have been the symbol of the medieval kingdom of Wessex.  The design of the wyvern to have derived from the figure of the dragon encountered by Trajan's legions in Dacia. It may be the origin of the red dragon of Wales and the golden dragon of the Kingdom of Wessex carried at the Battle of Burford in AD 752.

I hate fighting that golden flying piece of shit, but my completionist side doesn't let me move on until I max out everything I can.

In the main-line games I got triple-carted so many times when fighting her. In Stories, I only fought her once and I speant nearly all of the healing items I could take to battle.

This is amazing. I really like how the lower body's lighting is purple, but the areas lit up by the fire ball are golden. Also, I think that the v-shaped scales look awesome on this guy. It took me a second to see this, but I also noticed that you kept it consistent with the addition of the spade-shaped blads on his lower wing tips.

You do not really see that many Wyverns these days, Dragons are always getting the spotlight as the others of the draconic species get pushed to the side.
