come on, it looks like Olaf from Frozen. It's not even shaped like any of the other dragons or whelps in the game. It has the characteristics of a drake, but the stature of a fat gnome with an enlarged head. Plus it's holding a map... with its Dragon hands?
I've always figured the "explorer" cards are meant to be particularly cartoonish compared to other pseudo-tribes.
Look no further than their most notable two mascots, Reno and Finley, for example. Bronze Explorer fits right in with the mood those two set.
