Dragonborns came to Tyrania at the end of the Time of Troubles and have stayed ever since. Their history is long and filled with terror and war. They were originally tribes in the spine peaks, but when Thornheart came they were given a choice, become slaves or die. Most dragonborns fled and were ready to fight instead of living in captivity, but some stayed because they were weak and spineless. These dragonborns would have their tails cut and become a new subspecies of Dragonborn known as the Cut. The rest of the dragonborn found a valley in dragon peaks inhabited by a solitary tribe of Half Dragon . They fought the half-dragons for their territory and won, driving the half-dragons away. The half-dragons joined thornheart and became slavers of dragonborns.   The dragonborns began building a home for themself and eventually called it Decaris. They would go on to improve their civilization for millennia but would eventually fall into a long war with goblins close by. This war has raged for over 400 years and continues to this day.
