Dragonborn Species in Elmaloris | World Anvil


Tall, imposing, and striking one chiseled figure more often than not, these dragon-men have made their home around the mysterious Manavik Crater. In their tongue, they are known as "Darastkit"
Dragonborn are a race of proud, honorable warriors with strong magical traditions and ancient blood-ties to dragons. They never break an oath, and express their sense of honor by perfecting their skills and brooking no insult. They believe adversaries should be treated with courtesy and respect, even if they are bitter enemies. Caution and discretion are key to a warrior’s survival, but fear is a disease and cowardice is a moral failing. Ultimately, a dragonborn takes responsibility for his or her actions and their consequences. The drive to behave honorably is paramount to the dragonborn, and their continual drive for self-improvement reveals an additional aspect of dragonborn honor. Thus, breaking an oath is the height of dishonor, and attention to honesty extends to every word. A commitment made must be carried out.

Basic Information


Physically hominid, but with strong aspects of various dragon types. Instead of hair, dragonborn grow numerous, gnarled 'dreadlocks' that seem to be made of the same, if softer, keratin that makes up their scales, and thus will often be the same color as said scales.
