The Nine Sons of the Dragon is the second volume of ancient Chinese legends. According to an ancient legend, the nine little dragons in the same brood intended to have distinct shapes and personality. Later, the idiom is used to express the outstanding and mediocre brothers and sisters by the same parents. In this idiom, the dragon didnt give birth to exactly nine baby dragons. In traditional Chinese culture, the number nine is used to express a large number or amount, and enjoys a superior position. Nine is imaginary number as well as an auspicious number, thus it is used to describe the dragons babies.
