The Dragons are the ancient children of the Nameless First Dragon, a lesser form of Immortal created in the very early days of Macalgra. Thus they are the eldest of all species, and the lowest of the Immortal. They have dwelt in Sarirpala, the mount city, since before mortals trod the world. Possessed of very powerful magic, the might of their physical forms and the ability to assume human shape, they are a species rarely trifled with.
Dragons are alas subject to the ravages of age (abit much delayed), disease and mortal wound. Yet unlike mortals, the souls of dragons will create a new body immediately after death. As this new body matures, they will regain the memories of their past lives, providing a limited form of immortality.
Dragonkind follows a strict caste system, set along the lines of the many and varied forms of dragon born into the world. From the highest to the lowest, life is dictated by birth.
