Clan Information
Welcome to Canisa's Clan of Curiosities: Elemental Gems!

We live in Arcane lands, enjoying dreaming and stargazing...and reading. (What can I say, some of the dragons read some fantasy scrolls, and became hooked: So many new and fascinating worlds!)
Here you will find dragons devoted to magic, the stars, "between times" and fantasy. They consider their names to be a reflection of themselves, so do not acquire a name until they are ready, sometimes waiting months after maturing before they settle on what they will be called.

They are all very proud of themselves, and love to show off! Stop by their ID pages to learn more about each of them...

ORIGINAL DRAGONS


Bogsneaks: True Alchemists, named for the Alchemical materials they like to work with. They find the Wildclaw's efforts in this science amusing, if a bit odd. Although these dragon are generally friendly, they tend to be so focused on their work that it is often hard to engage them in conversation for more than a few minutes--unless, of course, you happen to be as interested in Alchemy as they are....

Coatls: The proud "gems" of the lair. They believe they are special, and do not like being told otherwise. Their names are a reflection of that proud personality, and of their interests in the often less studied areas of magic and philosophy, the study of focusing magical energy through gemstones.

Faes: A bit different from the rest of the clan, these dragons devote themselves to exploring the legends of “other worlds”…but not in the astronomical sense. They are fascinated with the stories of the “Fair Folk,” and every single one of them takes their name from parchment scrolls that address this topic.

Guardians: The "between times" dragons of the lair. Named for those mgaical, otherworldly times of the day and year when it's neither day nor night, light nor dark, but somewhere in-between...

Imperials: Like the Coatls, they consider themselves special. Unlike the Coatls, they are not haughty about it. After all, they have no need to flaunt what is so obvious, right? And if lesser dragons cannot tell the truth...well, it's their loss they won't have such a special friend! In the meantime, there are plenty of magical and arcane interests to explore...

In addition, these dragons are the teachers of the lair, imparting their "wisdom" to all other members of the clan--whether the dragons want to hear it or not. But they always give it in such a gentle way that no one can really get offended. Much.

Nocturnes: "Night Mages," and students of the Moon. Some use magic, others study the Moon's astronomical significance, while still others look at legends and myths linked to the smaller orb. They are all named for the "Seas" of the planetary body known as the Moon that they have encountered in their reading.

Pearlcatchers: As fascinated with magic and the universe as their Tundra "lair siblings," these dragons of the Clan like to focus more on the Elemental side of the magical divide, rather than the straight astronomical phenomena. Their names are somewhat complicated, reflecting their love of magical philosophy. Usually part of the name refers to the physical aspect of their chosen elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water) and part to the mystical (Spirit, Body, Mind, Soul). There are, however, some exceptions to this rule. At the moment, Eastern magic fascinates the females more, while Western intrigues the males, though there is some overlap from time to time....

Ridgebacks: Unlike their brethern in the lair, these dragons are far more fascinated with the "fantasy" aspect of the Arcane than anything else. They are readers, and enjoy speculating endlessly on the worlds they have found in their scrolls and books...and trying to see if they can recreate those worlds here, creatures and all...

Skydancers: The ethereal members of the lair, who do not have a set magical area, but dabble in everything. Perhaps they will explore ley lines? Or maybe take a look at the energy in the air, or explore transformative powers.... or just look at bringing spells in books and scrolls to life...

Snappers: Writers, researchers, and lovers of "Fantasy.". Like the Ridgebacks, they enjoy reading various scrolls and the Clan's few--and subsequently extremely valuable--books. However, the Snappers of the Clan are far more interested in how the scrolls and books are written then in the story. Each one has borrowed their name from an author's name or nickname, and they are all justifiably proud of their writing talents.

ANCIENT DRAGONS


All Ancient Breeds of the Clan are obsessed with Time, History, and the Past, in some form or another. Each Breed's particular interest is tempered (or in some cases encouraged) by their own natural instincts, however, leading to some very odd additions to the Clan...


Gaolers: Originally arriving in the Clan unexpectedly, through a strange magical surge that Changed the first two Gaolers of the lair from something else minutes after they were born--and in the case of the second, AS she was being born--these dragons are obsessed with guarding and warding in various ways...and also fascinated with Time Travel. The combination of these two interests has led to some very interesting name choices, and hobbies, though like all Gaolers, they do not actually choose their names until they come of age and choose their profession, whatever that may be...

Banescale: Warriors and Fire Magicians, these odd dragons have shown the Clan an instinctive ability to teleport, as well as a rare proficiency in telepathy, and a rather frightening talent for breathing fire hot enough to disintegrate living creatures. In addition, they have been known to jump periods in time as well. Though not all of these traits are exactly natural for their species, all Banescale of the Clan have exhibited them, since the very first two were found as abandoned eggs near the Clan’s entrance.

Therefore, as well as being the Fire Mage Protectors of the Clan, many of these dragons have become Clan Historians, as well. They will send themselves all over Sornieth--and all through time--to ensure that the stories they record are absolutely, one hundred percent accurate, from all sides of the conflict. Interestingly enough, regardless of other pursuits, all Clan Banescale have three things in common: a morbid fascination with the records of lopsided battles of one sort or another, an intense dislike for all Gaolers in the Clan, and an insatiable need to flame any worm or “thread-like” creature they see…
