Brothers of the Dragons, Dragonkin scales glisten like fire
The Blood of the Dragons, Dragonkin are said to have been made when a dragon lost its wings and spent the rest of its life on the ground, with its brood following in its footsteps. This origin is disputed by many scholars, but few can provide suitable counter theories.

Basic Information


Dragonkin stand upright like the many other civilized races of the world. What diverges them is their scales and reptilian features. Dragonkin are known for having vibrant scales all along their bodies, somewhat similar to dragons, that have been observed to come in many colours.

Growth Rate & Stages

Dragonkin life is divided into 4 clear stages, egg, infancy, adolescence, and adulthood. Dragonkin life as an egg is mostly unnoteworthy, bar the fact that eggs are the same color as the Dragonkin infant inside it. Dragonkin infancy is much the same as other races, and adolescence elicits increased growth in the Dragonkin child with, between the ages of 6 - 20,  they never stop growing, reaching roughly 6ft in height on average. After this, Dragonkin hardly grow during the rest of their lives
