My impression is that oriental dragons embodied some of the evil spirits that pervade Chinese folk religions, but they also have a security guard function of sorts: they protect property and treasure.
Dragons are also protectors of family. It is said that the real treasure of the dragon is not the riches, but the loving relationship between family members.
I think it depends on the dragon in question...from what I can tell so far there are a handful of different "dragons," each with specific attributes.
