Hetzi dracon are unlike the typical idea of dracon, who resembled dragon-like centaurs like the dracotaurs. Instead, hetzi dracon appear to be partially human. Much of their upper torso is not covered in scales, but in human skin. Their faces are fairly normal and human-like, though their ears are usually frills and their teeth tend to be jagged like a dragon's. Hetzi dracon sport a pair of leathery, draconic wings from their back, allowing them to fly. They also have a long, scaly tail, and scaled forearms and legs. The scale color of a hetzi dracon depends on the dragon which it descended from. Hetzi dracon did not descend from dragons of all types, only from a few scaled, and usually that of the chromatic sort.

History

As their name implies, the hetzi dracon were so named in a sort of confusion. Ethnographer and traveler Hetzi was the first to come in contact with this race within the mountainous forests. They were erroneously named dracon due to their draconic features. It was later discovered that their scales lent them the same properties as that of their draconic ancestor. As a result, some of them could withstand certain environments, thus explaining why they crowded usually according to their scales. For example, one would find specifically red hetzi dracon living in parched conditions, and no white hetzi dracon. Not a widespread population, the hetzi dracon are believed to originate from remnants of Tiamat's influence in the world. While not abhorrent dragonspawn, the hetzi dracon are forever marked. They are believed to have been hiding from the forces of Bahamut until Hetzi's discovery.

Society

Most hetzi dracon live in groups, assembled as a tribe. However, they do not have a strong herd instinct. The hetzi dracon are well known for acting very human and affable, as well as having the same desires for individual choice and lives. Thus, after a hetzi dracon matures at 18, they tend to look outward from their tribe and dream of life elsewhere. Their tribes are led by a single chief and four elders, and they are all one big family. The idea of small, nuclear families is very narrow-minded to hetzi dracon. Despite their wanderlust, hetzi dracon can be rather naive and close-minded about foreign concepts. This can sometimes spell trouble when they say the wrong thing on a sensitive cultural issue. Overall, people regard hetzi dracon much like they do dragonborn.
