Brief History

Dragonians were the spawn of elves and dragons, during the end of the Great Magic War and the beginning of the Second Era. Since then, the dragons have all but secluded themselves from humans and more dragonians have yet to be produced. However of the large amount of dragonians that were conceived during that time, they all had mated with each other, and grew into a large race. Though losing a lot of their dragon heritage over the years, they have kept to a basic appearance, and thus is the dragonian race.

Positives & Negatives

Dragonians have the ability to fly, and the varying abilities depending upon their element. They also boast great

Lifespan

Dragonians have three stages of life. The first stage, which last from birth until they reach the age of 15, is their child hood. Their development is similar to human children in this stage, though they are able to crawl upon hatching. This is the stage they are most susceptible to danger, death, and disease. They rely totally on their parents during this stage, though some do develop more quickly and reach the next stage of life several years faster.

The next stage, which last from 16 until the age of 1,000, is their adolescent age. This is the age they begin to take on a more draconian appearance, learn to fly, and learn their elemental effect. This is also the age they separate from their parents and go out to learn and explore. Most traveling dragonians are in this age group. Developing draconian features is a painful experience, and adolescent dragonians thus need more rest and more nourishment during this process.

The final stage, which last from 1,001 until death, is their adult hood. Most dragonians return to their pack during this time, an become a beneficial member of such pack. There are some however that are sicken with wanderlust who continue to explore. Death is a dragonians greatest honor, and they accept their timely death with open arms. However to die before their time is a terrible thing to them.

Appearance

Before they reach their adolescents, dragonians resemble human children, though larger, and with scale growth over certain parts of their skin. When they develop their dragonian features however, they are tall, built beings, bear colorful scales (color determined by their runic element) over parts of their arms, legs, knees, elbows, chest, and back, have slender, almond-shaped eye that are green and lizard-like, have developed dragon wings, and talons for feet. Their hair can be of any color, but their skin is usually a dull gray color. Only 50% of the dragonian population actually have tails.

Living Habitat

Dragonians can be found all over, and it is common to see a dragonian travel.

Food & Sleeping Requirements

Dragonians require 3 meals a day consisting of meats and water. They must sleep a full night’s cycle every night or suffer from fatigue (-5 from endurance per missed hour).

Culture

Dragonians are very much tied to their family and their tribe and usually work for the better of their fellow tribe members. Dragonians are often polytheistic in belief and they celebrate coming of age and birth.

Dragonians take great pride in the family surname which often can be traced back many generations. For first names, dragonians are often named after heroes of the past or of dragon mythology.

Racial Relations

Dragonians do not suffer or benefit from the same fear factor as their dragon cousins. Therefore they are more able to interact with other races in a more peaceful manner. Who they can interact with is ultimately up to the dragonian, however many races do not trust them.
