WHo are they? I cant understand nature of this monster and imagine it in my mind :) Could someone describe it or draw it? :)

In general a Dragonrider is someone riding a Dragon (duh), so in fact they are two creatures combined in one. We somehow assume that you kill them both at once, so you don't end up with just the dragon or just the rider. Maybe they share a mental bond that kills the other one if either dies. :-p
Our dragonriders actually stem from the fantasy lore of the "Pern" novels:
