Draconic is the ancient language of the Dragons. Due to Kath the Eternal, the Golden Dragon, being the first living creature on Totania, it is the first language to be spoken and the oldest on Totania.
Speakers of DraconicThe speakers of ancient Dragonic are none other than the Dragons, large beasts that roam the skies of Totania, their wings sprawling across the Heavens. Chief among these speakers are those that hold the title of Dragon Lord. There is not a single Dragon on Totania that speaks a language other than Draconic. This is due to the magical properties the language holds, most notably the fact that it is perfectly understood by any who hear it. Be it , Humans, or Korvians, they hear it as if it is their native tongue.
The Draconian CurseThis holds true for every race on Totania, save for the Arux Draconians, who hear Ancient Draconic. This is due to something known as Helle's Curse. What Helle's Curse entails is the inability for Draconians to hear Ancient Draconic as their own language, be it common or their Arux dialect of Draconic. This was created because Helle, sister of the God that created the Dragons, created the Draconians and did not want such easy communication between hers and her brothers creations. This was mostly spurred by the interactions of Kath the Eternal and Kilprax Ildial, the first Grand Wizard. This curse does not apply to the Verthica Draconians of the Celestial Palace , who not only are raised speaking Ancient Draconic already, but were not created by Helle. One of the original Zhi tested whether the curse applied to them, raising a child to speak Arux Draconic, and found that the child still understood Ancient as if it were Arux.
History of the LanguageAt the creation of the first life form on Totania, the Golden Dragon Lord Kath the Eternal, the God Phrixus who created him found the creature looking longly to him in hopes for one thing. Communication. Phrixus had no desire to make a companion for Kath, yet he knew that, at least in these first moments, he could be the one whom Kath could converse with. Phrixus did not want to just create a basic language for communication. Instead, he created a language that held many secrets of the world in its words, most notably the magic given by Ti Mayowa that enchanted it with various properties.
How the Language SoundsFor those that speak Ancient Draconic, or are an Arux Draconian and are under Helle's Curse, this language has a very distinct sound. For anyone else in Totania, there is no sound to this language that makes it unique, as it sounds exactly like whatever language they speak. The natural version of this language is structured similarly to most languages in Totania, as it follows a vowel and consonant system. Unlike most languages in Totania, there are certain parts of the words that are stressed differently than others (similar to the accent system in romance languages). The phonetic features of Draconic include the sounds
