Clan Information
Dragon bios and clan lore are all an ongoing process, none of them are "completed" as of yet, and all a lot more is in my head than is written.
I lost the vast majority of my written progress on bios awhile ago, which is painful, but also motivates me to finally finish some of them.

This is an Exalt-free lair

Want wind eyes? I’ll rent out my nests for free.
Will also brew free if given mats (level 22 cauldron)


On rank and governing: All dragons are valued on the same level, with status based on capability and leadership skills. The clan is lead unquestionably by its founders, and most notably by Aural, who has proven his worth as alpha many times over. Beneath him he has chosen a number of consuns, dragons who serve as a council of advisors and whom are entrusted with leadership in his absence. There is some level of hierarchy among the consuns, as well as among the remaining dragons, but it's based mostly on merit and has no official ranks. The name wanderer is given to members who spend very little time physically present in the clan, and who often have no dwelling of their own in the Grotto. Some of them consider themselves as members and some don’t- either way they’re acknowledged and respected by the whole.
There is no formal taxation on members to keep the clan vault in order, but residents within the Grotto are expected to contribute in some form, be it in goods or service.

Nearly all members carry an item or article of apparel engraved with the crooked feather, which is the clan emblem. This is both a show of pride in their allegiances and a way for traveling individuals to recognize each other, as it is rare to have met every member of the clan. Such engraving are usually small to avoid drawing attention to the clan, as their presence and location in the plateaus is a very closely guarded secret, to protect both their privacy and the occasional dragon who joins in order to escape the rest of the world. In fact, most dragons who meet members know them not as a clan but the occasional traveling band of explorers and traders. As little as a third of the clan typically resides in their territory, while the rest travel in groups of varying sizes for months at a time. This creates another rank in the clan, risuns, who have permanent dwellings in or around the Grotto and rarely leave.

Rites of Passage: Most rites are unofficial and unrequired, but a great deal of respect comes with performing them
  • Initiation: The only required rite, which grants official admittance into the clan. Any member is welcome to accept a fellow dragon into the clan, but they are not officially recognized until they have been cleared by Aural, at which point Rhea records them in her library and Naiad is called upon to release them from the Grotto’s enchantments. Further instruction into the history and philosophy of the clan, as well as training in one of the skills they is encouraged, but not strictly required.
  • Chasing the wind, also called wayfinding or the windchase, in which a dragon is expected to go off on their own for days or months on end. Be it going back to their roots, or exploring a region they have never seen before, it is viewed as a sacred sort of soul-searching and most members of the clan can claim to have done it and become stronger for it. Thus, it is quite common for dragons to wander off and disappear for a while, and unless they are in apparent danger it is forbidden to search for them. Some dragons come close to wanderers in status because of the sheer amount of time they put into the windchase.

Outlying Groups:
  • (Name here): A band of thieves and rovers recognized by the clan but not official members- occasional trading partners. Consists namely of nocturnes and led by Mapache
  • (Name here): Vicious cult of slavers who work towards yet unknown ambitions; enemy of the clan from whom several members have been freed
  • (Name here): Ancient, mysterious, and very powerful group from the Southern Icefields (likely based in the cloudscrapes). Very little information is known about them, and knowledge is kept mostly among those who have been affected by them (Mani, Prunio, Kilauea, and potentially Siku); excepting only close friends of the affected (ie Marco) and those who have a knack for learning secrets (ie Hipp and Aural).

Lair: called the Grotto, more details forthcoming

Allies:
-the sisterclan in Earth
-Small light family

a little about me: I'm female, an aspiring artist, and have passions for books, writing, music, animals, the outdoors in general, and everything fantasy. I always welcome in-character interaction with my clan, be it sending letters, roleplay, random gifts, or whatever.
I also have social anxieties and the occasional struggle with depression, so if I'm taking awhile to reply to someone that may be part of the reason.

Hi Thewarywatcher13 =) I was running a search for a possible match for one of my tundras, and I think with some work I can turn Pruino #3624185 into what I was looking for. If you ever think of selling him, give me a ping or pm. =) Thanks
