Language: Old English


Draconians are a rare race, and little is known about them to the common folk. Over time, more Draconians have made their way into other communities, where a glimpse of their behaviour and lifestyle has been shared. These creatures are thought to be immortal, and appear as humanoid dragons of various colours, matching the Dragon they are aligned with. All Draconians are covered in tough scales and have two horns protruding from their head. It is unknown how many Draconians there are, but it is theorized there are no more than a few hundred.

Behaviours and Beliefs

Draconians view themselves as the progeny of the Dragons, not in a literal sense, but much like children, servants, or tools. The relationship a Darconian has with their patron Dragon will be a reflection of their values. Draconians have the same colour scales as their patron Dragon and often share their temperament and values. It is not unheard of, however, for a Draconian to develop separate views from their patron, though they would rarely if ever oppose the nature of their patron. This creates a wide variety of Draconian behavior, but something can usually be guessed about their nature, simply by their colouring. Draconians refer to Dragons as the Firstborn, because they believe the Dragons were the first creatures to exist in the world.

If one thing can be said about Draconians it is that they are as varied as the mortal races when it comes to personality, goals and interests. They are all united, however, in that all Draconians find the Divine reprehensible. A Draconian would never willingly allow divine magic to be cast upon them, and some Draconians can in fact reflect this type of magic back upon its originator. This is due to the bond a Draconian has with their patron Dragon. Attitudes towards the Gods range from outright hostility to passive distaste. Draconians make little distinction between Gods of light, dark and balance. They are all sources of the Divine, thus all equally reprehensible. Some hate all Gods equally, and some choose to crusade against one specific God or a few different Gods throughout their lifetime.

To a Draconian, the worshipers of Gods are misguided or ignorant at best, and their most hated enemies at worst. Some treat worshipers with compassion and tolerance, while others feel the only good God worshiper is a dead one. It is not uncommon for a Draconian who happens to live among the common races to find a balance when it comes to dealing with God worshippers. A Draconian would never take to worshiping a God of their own free will, and it is in their nature to question those who do so. Whether or not a Draconian is active in recruiting followers of their patron Dragon depends on their values. However they would always advise against the worship of any God to anyone.

Breeding and children

Draconians have gender, male and female, however they do not mate very often, making this race a rare one. Draconians may cross-breed (eg. A Ruby with an Obsidian), and the resulting child always shares the colouring and patron Dragon of its mother. Mating produces an egg with gestation period of years. It is believed that a Draconian’s patron dragon will communicate telepathically to the child while growing inside it’s egg, creating a bond before hatching.

Draconians have varying views on children, but all feel they have a sense of duty to their race to repoduce at some point in their lives. Draconians with more dangerous lifestyles, such as warriors, often choose to bear their young early in life, whereas more reflective and scholarly Draconians will take their time choosing the right moment, place and mate.

Once the obligation to produce an egg is complete, methods of rearing the offspring do not vary widely. Most Draconians take great care in the rearing of their children, either as a single parent or the two parents taking turns raising the child. It is rare to see two Draconians raising a child as a mated pair. What is a common method of child rearing is to leave the child to be raised by a group of Draconians dedicated to the care and education of their kind. These communes are typical among more social groups of Draconians as they allow the parents the freedom to carry on with their own lives but offer great care and opportunities to the offspring. Communities may be mixed but more often are structured by one colour so they can focus on the domains of the patron Dragon.

Children are encouraged to leave and seek their own destiny whenever they feel they are ready. Draconians are free to set their own goals in life, though they are often heavily influenced by their upbringing. Draconians reach maturity between 40-100 years of age. This happens when the Draconian reaches their full size and their scales begin to harden. This is known as the First Hardening, and is considered a right of passage among Draconians. It is also the age when a Draconian can first resurrect. Their scales will continue to harden as the Draconian ages, and can become harder than steal weapons.

Culture and Other Races

Draconians count themselves as “civilized”, perhaps even above the rest of the mortal races. A Draconian’s involvement in other cultures will depend on their temperament, but due to sheer numbers, unless one leads a solitary life, one is bound to discover another race. Most of these discoveries are tolerated, but sometimes a Draconian will develop an interest or “curiosity” for another race. Some Draconians enjoy immersing themselves in another culture to experience it, but most are content simply to observe, if they pay them any attention at all.

Some Draconians will use other races for their own means, leading a group for their patron Dragon's use, or something more self-serving. Other Draconians will be run out of towns and viewed as monstrous demons.

Draconians are great patrons of the arts, and depending on their upbringing that can mean several things. Some Draconians desire to perfect the art of war as others lean towards poetry, or gardening. Meditation is a common practice, though not to be confused with any religious affiliation, it is a tool of self reflection and knowledge. Draconians have also been known to have a bit of a perfectionist streak when it comes to their favorite arts. They often strive to better themselves, but may also take up teaching others. Some Draconians feel it is their duty to guide the lesser races, while others have no such compulsion. Those who do reach out to others who accept them are often sought as great teachers.
