and the Order of Dawn's Talon
frlight_sidebar_long_by_littlefiredragon-dbjxz5v.png A battered and faded temple rests on the western edge of the Mirrorlight Promenade, draped in golden banners and ribbons – a once-abandoned ruin converted by the resident dragons, Clan Araven, into a shining monument to the Lightweaver. Though its reliefs are worn and its mosaics faded, behind the chipped columns of this majestic building lies the hall of the Order of Dawn’s Talon, a band of paladins and other brave souls dedicated to defending dragonkind from the Beastclans.

Clan Araven – and by extension, the Order itself – has its origins in a fateful quest undertaken by the Fae priestess of the Lightweaver, Gallicinia, and her companions. After a Talonok raiding party made off with several eggs from various clans in the Sunbeam Ruins, Gallicinia joined a party of brave young dragons who vowed to put an end to the egg thefts and stop whatever foul scheme the bird-folk had planned.

This fellowship chased the Talonok to the depths of the Tangled Wood, following the trail of raided nests almost to the border of the Scarred Wasteland, where at long last the dragons confronted the thieves. But there, in the heart of their homeland, the Talonok were able to outnumber, outmaneuver, and overwhelm the would-be heroes in a terrible bloodbath.
The dragons attempted to escape the slaughter, but it was too late. In the chaos, only the dark-colored Fae was able to escape with her life. But her quest had not been entirely in vain, for as she fled, she was able to rescue a single pale green egg.

The Talonok hounded her relentlessly as she beat a desperate retreat toward her homeland, spurred on well beyond the normal limitations of her body by mortal terror, but the egg slowed her flight, and the bird-folk descended upon her. It was only through a stroke of luck, or very possibly fate, that her path intersected that of a Guardian on his Search. Recognizing the imperiled Fae as his long-sought Charge, Aurorus rushed to her aid and drove off the Talonok, with two orphaned Skydancer hatchlings clinging to his back through the chaos.

Aurorus continued to protect Gallicinia as they made their way eastward, now free to move at a more reasonable pace without the looming threat of death. During the journey, the rescued egg hatched, and the five dragons trekked on together to the Mirrorlight Promenade. Aurorus and Gallicinia had grown fond of each other in the course of their travels, and by the time of their arrival, had decided to begin a clan of their own. They settled in a ruined temple, and worked to restore it to a glory worthy of the Lightweaver.

Delayed, but not defeated, she declared that with the founding of Clan Araven, named for the only remaining fragment of readable text in the temple, so too would be born a new order dedicated to the same lofty ideals that set her on her path, forever intertwined with the clan itself. They would pierce the heart of darkness like a ray of light – like Dawn’s Talon.

Thank you so much! I've wanted one like him for a while, and when I saw his dad's lore, he was honestly just perfect. Once I get him all dressed up to my liking I'm probably gonna send a hatchling letter :3
