Dragonkin | World Anvil - Isekai Codex

Isekai has started its grand restructuring! Please bear with us as things move around and get situated in their new home.
Names are also in the process of changing, so some names are inconsistent currently.


Children of Dragons and the Elder Races

Scattered much like their namesake, these people of brilliant scales and raging weapons coursing from their maw find little in common with others of their kind and color. Choosing isolation, either apart or amongst groups of themselves, they prefer lives that are unlimited by the ideas of outside society or the dictations of their colors. Even so, it is common to find their shining scales mixed amongst the children of the Elder Races, finding a home within the cities of others.   Dragonkin are a race that appeared after the Elder Races because they are the descendants of a Dragon with one of the Elder Races. It is said that they have a responsibility to discover their place in the world due to their unique and diverse heritage. Their role in the Eldritch War was varied as they tended to integrate with other races and communities because of their mixed heritage. There are some notable casters, Warriors, and leaders that have various mentions in history because of their involvement or lack thereof. Dragonkin are known to be a proud species that has great physical traits that mimic their Draconic heritage, including the ability to breathe fire or whatever else their Draconic ancestor would.   Currently, they live scattered throughout the world and are integrated into many societies but their largest concentrated presence is on one of the Zóni called Ullindar. You will find these people in small tribal communities, large cities, and as travelers throughout the world but outside of their home country, it is rare to find gatherings larger than that of a tribe. The largest city on the island of Ullindar is called Fearsome Maw and it is a curious city that shows a highly segregated aspect of their culture where each variety of Dragonkin has their own sector of the city and their own gate that is used without exception.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Dragonkin can be found scattered throughout Isekai, but outside of their homeland on Ullindar, these people are often scattered and tend to choose to live amongst other races. Small groups of Dragonkin may appear, but these small groups, considered tribes, rarely number more than fifteen or twenty. They prefer areas where they can mingle with people of the Elder Races, partaking in parts of their heritage that are often masked by the more Draconic traits.   Culturally, the various colors of Dragonkin vary greatly, much like Dragons do, in the ways they live and socialize. That being said, all colors of Dragonkin can be found on Ullindar, even though they often have dedicated areas per color. It is the safety of this area that brings them together at the Fearsome Maw.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Dragonkin are known best for their unique physical traits that confirm their lineage to be that of Dragons but the only thing left of the other half of their ancestry is often forgotten save for the height of that race.   This species has 24 varieties that are divided into the two categories of Chromatic and Metallic. The Draconic heritage of a Dragonkin helps to decide their unique physical traits including the color of their scales, the type of damage that their scales have developed a resistance to and what type of breath weapon that they will manifest. This heritage may also dictate subtleties about the build of a Dragonkin such as a more powerful frame or being more agile and fit for acrobatics.   The uniting features across all categories and varieties of Dragonkin are their protective scales, their claws, and their ability to manifest a breath weapon. Dragonkin will always have skin that acts as natural armor and claws that are easily substituted for a weapon but their breath weapon is an ability that they can manipulate.
