Dragon

Basic Information

Anatomy

Dragons are six-limbed, with four walking legs and two wings. Dragons also have a prehensile tail.
Dragons have seven different colorations possible. Each color is considered a race/gender, and each has a unique role in society.
Dragon Colorations:
  • Golden - These are the leaders of the draconic clans. Each clutch contains at most one golden dragon, and many clutches contain no golden dragons. Golden dragons are often associated with Kir, Goddess of Spirit
  • Bronze - These are the craftsmen of the draconic clans. Each clutch is about 20% bronze dragons. Bronze dragons are often associated with Dyr, Goddess of Fire
  • Brown - These are the homemakers and warriors of the draconic clans. Each clutch is about 20% brown dragons. Brown dragons are often associated with Pol, Goddess of Earth
  • Blue - These are the healers and scholars of the draconic clans. Each clutch is about 20% blue dragons. Blue dragons are often associated with Oce, Goddess of Water
  • Green - These are the merchants and travelers of the draconic clans. Each clutch is about 20% green dragons. Green dragons are often associated with Symph, Goddess of Air
There is no dragon color associated with Brae, Goddess of Order or Nuus, Goddess of Chaos, but dragons associate those goddesses with Life and Death/Rebirth, respectively.

Genetics and Reproduction

Dragon-Dragon Reproduction:
When dragons reproduce with other dragons, they form a clutch that contains between 20-30 eggs, distributed evenly amongst all 4 main colors. Clutches conceived by a gold dragon and a bronze dragon have the possibility of containing a golden egg.

Dragon-Humanoid Reproduction:
While in their humanoid form, dragons can reproduce with other humanoid species. This will always result in a dragonborn child.

Growth Rate & Stages

Dragons grow at approximately 1/10th human standard; most dragons live around 1000 years, and hit their maturity around their second century. During adolescence, dragons usually explore with the guidance of an older mentor, and baby dragons are rarely seen outside of the Western Continent.  As they become adults, dragons select a patron goddess, and begin accumulating their horde.  Each dragon’s horde is unique; one may hoard stained glass, while another collects only shoes, and a third hoards embroidery of any kind.
