Nettlebrand, also known as the Golden One, is the main antagonist in the standalone children's novel Dragon Rider.
Creation and enslavery of TwiglegEdit
Created by an alchemist in the medieval times, he was meant to hunt down dragons for their horns. The alchemist wanted dragon horns to make gold. He made Nettlebrand have the power to communicate and to travel through water. Nettlebrand's armor is invincible to dragon fire. Nettlebrand ate his alchemist and Twigleg's homunculus brothers. However, Twigleg was spared as he needed someone to polish his armor.

He is a big golden dragon. He is unable to fly because he has heavy armor on. He has two horns on his head, two ears and a curved beak. His scales are very thick, and could be melted by a brownie's spit and dragon-fire.
