Brood / Dragon Clan[edit]

Personality[edit]

They're generally a peaceable race of humanoids who turn into dragons, living what could acquaint to an average lifestyle of any of the other races. However as due to their nature as guardians against the evils of the Goddess Tyr and her minions are somewhat militaristic as well. Every citizen is capable of defending themselves against a variety of threats, using whatever is on hand, be it tool or weapon. They reserve their actual transformation for especially dangerous threats, where they use tooth and claw and breath to turn it back or destroy it.

One would think that living in the shadow of the constant threat of danger from demons and other of such ilk would harden them into a bitter or cold people. However this is not true, in the face of such evil and danger they have kept a friendly demeanour. Treating all who don't present themselves as a threat as guests to be protected from outside dangers for as long as they seek shelter with the Brood.

They have managed to keep this disposition through their exodus from infinity. Though, due to their new lifestyle as a nomadic people, they have become closer not as a people, but more inquisitive of other cultures and peoples. -I edited this so my DM would let me turn into a dragon :(

Physical Description[edit]

They are very much like Humans, however they seem to have a much greater variety of colouration for hair and eye colour.

Their most visible feature that identifies them as non-humans though are the appearance of draconic wings, tail and sometimes horns. At first glance they may seem somewhat demonic due to these features, and truth be told, more often then not they have been avoided or fled from due to such assumptions. However closer examination or examination through psionic or magical means easily reveals what they are.

Relations[edit]

They really like humans, having interbred with them in ancient times leading to their somewhat similar appearance. Other races of good alignment are treated as friends, and of neutral alignment, tolerated. They dispise anything Evil, or chaotic as to them it bares a resemblance or a taint of the Evil Goddess Tyr. As such a majority of the underground dwelling races such as the Drow or Skaven are their natural enemies.

Alignment[edit]

Mostly Good or Neutral, and mostly Lawful or Neutral... it's Rare for a Brood to turn Evil or Chaotic, and such Brood are either killed or exiled from the clan.

Lands[edit]

For centuries their only lands were in the vast underground chasm of Infinity where the Goddess Tyr was imprisoned. Their capitol city residing in and around one of the many gargantuan supporting pillars of the underground space. However, with the sealing of Gate, they were freed from their generational duty, and migrated back to the surface, sealing their routs along the way.

As of now they are a nomadic people, looking for a new place to call home.

Religion[edit]

They pray to and worship the Great Dragon God, and have a natural hate towards the Goddess Tyr, and any other gods or goddess' like her. Due to their close community, which was more or less cut off from the majority of the known world, it is Rare for any Brood to worship any other deity. And while their new foray into the above world has allowed them to encounter other religions, the Dragon God will still be Chief God to them... for now at least.
