Were-Dragon[edit]

History[edit]

Were-dragons were, and still are, a very exclusive group; Having earned the trust of a dragon, and preformed the ritual of draconthropy, most commonly it is the females that survive the ritual. However, some males have survived as well.

Society[edit]

It is rare to find a Were-Dragon society, as they are so reclusive and so few in number. However, some do exist. Those societies are often founded in the ruins of old cities. Also, most Were-Dragon cities are nomadic and are more like tribes. Were-Dragons tribes are often led by males. However, some tribes are ruled by females.
