Buraki is the main antagonist of the 2007 Korean-American film, Dragon Wars. He is a giant Snake-like creature (Imugi) who was corrupted to gather the power to become the new Celestial Dragon. He is the leader of an army formed by demonic abominations which some of them resembles either Western Dragons, Theropod Dinosaurs and Frog-like creatures.
The legend says that every 500 years a young girl is chosen to turn the Imoogi into a Celestial Dragon. To gain this, the Imoogi must be good and benefit the human. Alongside the army, all Imoogis fulfilled that destiny except one: Buraki always wanted to be a Celestial Dragon, but his wish wasn't fulfilled and tried to get it in a bad way. He first tried to catch the girl who had that power, but failed to capture her.
Buraki returns to find the new woman (Sarah) who can turn him into a Dragon, but the Good Imoogi appears and Buraki seemingly kills it by snapping its neck. Buraki approaches Sarah, who uses her powers to lure Buraki away and revive the Good Imoogi, who transforms into the Celestial Dragon. The two monsters clash viciously until the Celestial Dragon kills Buraki by firing a fireball down his throat, disintegrating him.
Buraki is ruthless, despised and malevolent. He seeks the power to destroy the world and Heaven and form a new one (a goal similar to Malefor's). His personality is demonic, as well seeking power at any cost. He won't stop even, if he has to kill anyone.
Powers and Abilities
Aside his powerful jaws, he has almost indestructible skin, colossal strength, great velocity, and can magically detect the girl possessing the Celestial Power.
Minions and Army
- Atrox Army: Black-armored, humanoid warriors that serve Buraki.
- Shaconnes: Demonic cavalries in form of theropod dinosaur that bred for the Atrox Soldiers' steeds.
- Bulcos: Western Dragon-like abominations that formerly birds bred by the Altrox Soldiers to be used for air travel. The birds are raised in isolation from other animals in order to fuel their desire to be free and in turn make then even more ferocious when they make contact with other creatures. Bulcos have fire breathing abilities with flames that reach five hundred feet. Their fire breathing power combined with their incredible flying speed, makes these extraordinary birds formidable opponents in any battle. However, in logic, the said isolation method may affected the birds' mental states, implies that the physical mutation into western dragon-like creature and their powers may due to a curse that inflicted on them prior to the isolation.
- Dawdler: A large, legless stegosaur-like abomination with magical back cannons.
