Dragon Rider flying suit

"Smocza zbroja"

Design

The design of any flying suit is unique, but they always have some similarities. They are one-pieces, often with a zip on the chest, and with a lot of pockets. They may have built-in wings or a parachute, in case of some fall from the sky. They must protect from cold, and be fireproof. For protection from fire, they are covered or in dragon scales (You know, dragons like to sheet!) or in a special paint, also made from powdered dragon scales. The suit is often similar to the dragon, like it has the same colour ( If the paint is made from your dragon scales), on the helmet are paintings of the fangs, etc. For safety reasons, in the suit is incorporated a belt, with clip hooks to hook yourself to the saddle.

Who wears it?

This type of overall is the usual pic for any Dragon Rider who is going to fly. All new adepts are given one of it, but when it's too small, or broken, they must buy a new one.

History

A first concept of what we can call a "flying suit" is a heavy jacket, with a harness, but a "modern" flying suit was invented not more than 200 years before the Second War. In other worlds where dragons are domesticated, also was born the concept of something to wear while flying.

The suit is often sewed from hide or a strange type of latex, and covered in dragon scales. The mechanical pieces are from malkallen, or steel. The helmet is often made from malkallen too.
The header is an art work of Chat Noir in his astro form, but, considering my headcanons, it's his Dragon Rider suit as well.

Pretty nice looking armor! Good use of heroforge images. I like dragon scales can be used in a special way by pulverizing them into a paint. I did notice some spelling errors here and there but that is quickly solved by a reread :) Nice article!

Sorry for the spelling errors, English is not my native language, but I will check them on a special page. Thanks for the comment, I'm very glad that you like my concept.

No need to apologise :) Everyone's articles have spelling error at the start even the native English speakers :)

Better? I checked.

Still a few but if you want I can point them out? For example at the start there is 'unic' which should be 'unique'. Another you used 'flaying' instead of 'flying'. And at the end there is 'icorporated' which should be 'incorporated'. I hope that helps ? :)

Nice article, I like the idea of using the scales to make a paint. What size is an individual scale? I imagine it must be very small. Unless they are broken down into small pieces? Do the scales have other properties besides fire protection?

Size of the scales is different according to the species of the dragon. For example the Lizardesce Gigantwings are really small, so they scales are small. The Northern Treeeaters have the biggest scales, almost size of a hand of a grown man, but they are really HUGE. Like, one of these can eat a sequoia at once. (Yes, they are herbivores.) Dragon scales are fireproof, and, beside that, some species have special kinds of scales, with special properties. The scales of the Cavern Smoke are fluorescent, Shark Tooth's are toxic, and Radial Wywernas have scales that change color when are exposed to radiation. These are only few examples.

Oh this is all very interesting!   So do the dragon riders always use the scales from their own dragon or could they use scales with more interesting properties? Or is it just something that is not done - the dragons could even get offended by that XD   Could a mixture of scales with different properties be used? Or would that reduce their effectiveness and just make the suit useless?

The Riders use scales from different dragons, not always from their own. Using scales from your dragon is something that is cosmetic, more for be in the same color that the dragon is. But, dragons have HUMOURS and, if you have a really jealous dragon, it can fell offended because you smell of other dragons... You know, better is don't risk. You can always ask your dragon if he/she will fell bad because you wear something done of scales from other dragons. Sometimes you can make your suit from your partner dragon scales, especially if your dragons are a couple. There are multiple technics.   A mixtures made from different types of scales are commonly used, or to strengthen some properties, or for fun. ( Dark everywhere, you look up, and see a fricking GLOWING HUMANOID WITH WINGS...)

Mam drobną radę. Jeśli chcesz mieć spore grono czytelników, pisz po angielsku

Nie piszę tego dla czytelników, a bardziej po to by pomysły mi nie przepadły. Ale niektóre rzeczy piszę po angielsku.
