Braxus was a dragon from the island of Tarsus. He was befriended by the warlord Adamis after his mother died but Braxus didn't realize that Adamis had killed his mother. The warlord raised Braxus as a killer and planned to have him kill Hercules because the hero had exiled him for ten years to Tarsus. Eventually, Hercules helped prove to Braxus that Adamis was the true enemy. Braxus killed Adamis and went back to Tarsus.
