Copper Dragonkin

Descendants of Copper Dragons

A small crowd of children gathers around as large claws and glittering scales entertain with simple card tricks. While everyone says it must be magical, the Dragonkin uses nothing more than sleight of hand to make the children laugh and scream with joy. Next, he pulls a coin from behind a little girl's ear, handing it to her and smiling a toothy grin as she squeals. Today he is a street performer, tomorrow he will speak on behalf of these same children he entertains. With his voice, he tries to be a light in the world where sometimes it is dark.   Copper Dragonkin are the descendants of one of the Elder Races and a Copper Dragon. Much like the Pink Dragonkin, they are charismatic and outspoken, but instead of just entertaining, their side shows are meant to be a platform for change and happiness. With their words, they affect the world, hopefully changing it for the better. Wherever they live, one will find entertainment and social change, often from the same mouth.   Above all else, these people believe in service. The Council of Metallic Dragons has proven that they can make a difference, no matter how small, no matter where. Metallic Dragonkin follow in the footsteps of their ancestors, each in different ways. Copper Dragonkin use their voices, whether it be to bring joy or to bring a better life. It could be a change for a single person, or it can light up the entire world.

Basic Information


Copper Dragonkin share some specific traits with their Draconic ancestors that prove their ties to the Copper Dragons. Their facial features are softer than other Dragonkin, with a jawline defined by smaller protruding spikes and a ribbed crest on their head. Downturned horns, whisker-like pieces coming from their snout, a ridged tail, and smaller muscular bodies are also common in Copper Dragonkin.   All Dragonkin inherit sharp claws, extremely strong and protective scales, as well as a breath weapon that they can use. Some of these traits are affected by the color of the Dragonkin as the many varieties of Dragons also vary greatly in their abilities. Copper Dragonkin often have a resistance to fire while their breath weapon creates a plume of extremely hot flames that can burn or melt anything they come in contact with. This is considered one of the strongest breath weapons amongst all Dragonkin, but Copper Dragonkin rarely use it.   Common Colorations

Common Colorations

While their coloration is in their name, Copper Dragonkin can still come in a variety of shades, matching the shades found in the scales of Copper Dragons. Their scales can range from a lighter copper color to a darker copper, but their range of color is not as large as the Chromatic Dragonkin. The color of their eyes has a much smaller range, often only being yellow, brown, red, green, grey, or purple.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Metallic Dragonkin are considered the more social of the two groups of Dragonkin, although this is greatly influenced by the stigmas that surround certain colors of scales. Copper Dragonkin are by far the most sociable, often compared to the charismatic Pink Dragonkin in their love of entertaining. These people join all manner of societies, choosing larger cities to make their homes or a life on the road to fulfill their love of entertainment and companionship.   The area of the Fearsome Maw granted to the Copper Dragonkin is often lively, with some comparing it to the unending party that can be found in certain areas of the Fairy King's Wood. Wherever they go, these people are often the center of attention, using this as a platform to help change society for the better.
