Alera's Dragon-ness - alternate theory

I would think that if one actually became a god, one could choose ones new 
make and model so to speak. The gods appears as widely varied as anyone 
could imagine, the consistancy is inconsistancy, much like human whim. It is 
my opinion they choose their own forms.
