The Dragon of Herenna was a dragon from Herenna.
Graham's grandfather, a knight of great renown, defeated the dragon. Using his wits, rather than his sword, he banished the Dragon of Herenna. Many songs are still sung of his heroism and of how he defeated the dragon.
Behind the scenesEdit
There is a Harenna Forest in Ethiopia. There is a character named Herrena in the Terry Pratchet's Discworld novels (c. 1986).
Herenna can also be a name or surname. Some with this name appear in India. If it is a name and not a location another possibility is that the dragon earned this name based on who sent it, or who defeated it (for example the Dragon of St. George). In the latter case it's possible that it could have been the name of Graham's Grandfather, Rosella's (Great-Grandfather). If this is the case it might explain a connection to his son's name Hereward which begins with a similar sounding syllable 'here' or 'her'.
