Not to be combative, but again I say. Some of the first depictions of dragons, is the sky worm or fire serpent. With a snake like body, but with adjoining limbs (arms & legs). In fact the earliest phrase used for a dragon I know of, simply calls it a snake. Though it is clearly a dragon (my source is the Egyptian Nter Kem-atef). Think of a Chinese parade, and tell me how does their dragon look? Like a snake with limbs, and of course the head of the dragon. *btw, I actually prefer the look of fantasy dragons.

I'm sorry you struggle with your morality. Myself, like true evil, have never had to worry about being good. Because my nature is genuinely good. So I'd never turn to any form of fiction, in those regards. Fiction to me is either purely entertainment, or a source to tell a story (could be based off of real life events or otherwise). But all I'm saying is from the beginning the creature you call a dragon today. Originally was called just a snake, then later a fire serpent, and further more a sky worm. Though all relate to the same beast. And originally the creature is used to describe the first (primordial) being ever. From my guess this being is more spirit than anything else. But through its self reincarnations, it achieved mortality (journey from spirit to flesh). As well as creating the universe (its snake/dragon like body), Earth (its place of rebirth), and all the living things that lived beside it. Your not wrong, yet nor am I. The fantasy dragon that we typically see today. Is an interpretation the exact same beast, people once called glow/sky worm, fire serpent, or even snake of yester years. We all call them dragons NOW, but back when people used to call them something entirely different. And [BAMF] we have appeared to the end of this argument. Winner goes to the preservation of electrical signals. As they so love to flow without our devices computing personal interpretations upon them.
