In the world of The Dragon Forest, dragons are not born (more precisely “hatched”) bad. It is how they are raised, how they are trained, that makes the difference.

Bottom line: I think PJ and company are at their best when they quote Tolkien verbatim. Why they chose to change some of his best dialog is beyond me.
