Clan Itzalak Laino - The Clan of Misty Shadows

Hidden away deep in the Foxfire Bramble, the Clan of Misty Shadows makes its home. To all outsiders, and even to clans that serve the Shadowbinder as well, they are secretive, mysterious, alluring, and most of all, dangerous. Each dragon serves a purpose in the clan, and each dragon works diligently to ensure that their job is done properly- lest they risk banishment. The rules in the Clan of Misty Shadows may be harsh, and are strictly enforced by the Council Leader Shadowemyst, but her mate, the High Diplomat Mistshaydowe, ensures that there is time for rest and play as well.

The dragons of the Clan of Misty Shadows serve many distinct yet varied purposes. There are those of the Elite Council, representing the leaders from each of the three main breeds that belong to the clan. Among the lower ranks, there are diplomats, warriors, mercenaries, healers, mages, and the elite group known only as "The Exalters." Other dragons serve more domestic tasks, such as caring for the hatchlings that are adopted into the clan or gathering food for each of the clan's meals.

Many of the dragons in the Clan of Misty Shadows sport dark-colored pelts, especially in purple, blue, or grey hues. Not only do the dark shades make excellent camouflage for the bleak and dreary colors of the Tangled Wood, but they are valued colors in the clan- they add to the beguiling obscurity that is so greatly treasured. However, many brightly-colored dragons exist among the clan's ranks, and are not discriminated against for it. Most prominent among these are Stormfyre and Icefyre, the shimmering white Skydancers of the Elite Council.

As tightly-knit and hard-working as the dragons of the Clan of Misty Shadows are, it is surprising to many to hear that they had humble beginnings. It started with a mere four dragons- the High Warrior Lagoon and her mate the Clan Manager Obsidian, as well as Mirror Leader Misaka and her former mate Azurite. Four dragons, with four different colors and four different mindsets, who decided to create a clan for those who shared their ideals. From Lagoon came the ferocity of the dragons here; Obsidian supplied the training and intelligence to go with it. Misaka organized the ranking system, as well as the exaltation system, and Azurite spread the word of a new clan. At first, few dragons even knew of the Clan of Misty Shadows, and even fewer were willing to join. For long months, the four dwelled listlessly. But after nearly a year, things began to turn around. A pair named Volcanyc and Ocynia moved in. Soon after, a beautiful Skydancer by the name of Rosewyn joined the clan, and with these three there came more. And more. The clan continued to grow, moving from place to place in the Tangled Wood, until this very moment.

Many of the dragons here are fighters. Lagoon and Nocturne Leaders Sapphyre and Quartz train most of the young warriors. However, there are perhaps just as many other dragons with different talents or interests, and specialized training is given for them to excel in that which they pursue. High Crafters Steampunk and Anachron know metalworking, musicmaking and the arts; Council Members Jade and Azurite teach clan lore; Obsidian and Mistshaydowe gladly work together to train future diplomats; no dragon teaches in the ways of appearance and charm quite like Rosewyn; and one lovely young Imperial by the name of Ardiena has an incredible way with herbs. Scholars, scientists and mages also dwell within the depths of the Clan of Misty Shadows.

Exaltation is a rather big deal in this fierce and aggressive clan. All fourteen Council Members have a mate, and they have nests on a regular basis. It is only rarely that a hatchling is given a chance to grow up within the clan if their parents are Council Members, as they do not have time to look after young ones, and the clan is always in need of more dragons to serve their beloved Shadowbinder. Mirror Leader and Clan Founder Misaka had scores of hatchlings with her past mate Azurite; only two still live today, and both are in the Clan of Misty Shadows. It is the same story with the other Council Members. If a hatchling is born ill or weak, as two of the three first children of Mistshaydowe and Shadowemyst were, they are given a proper burial by the clan. However, the Shadowbinder often inducts these hatchlings into her care as well. No clan member takes this personally- it is a fact of clan life, and exaltation makes a clan more powerful. They are accustomed to it and accept it as just business, as another task to be performed in the clan. Besides, hatchlings are trouble.

Politically, the Clan of Misty Shadows is very diplomatic and very direct.They are formal, but curt, in foreign affairs; all members of the clan, even young dragons, are introverted by nature. No one likes to be around dragons outside of the clan for long. While many other clans step forward and proffer their alliance, the Clan of Misty Shadows is a lone clan through and through. They do not rely on others, even in times of need, and do not accept charity; nor are they particularly hospitable. However, these dragons are incredibly selfless and strong, devout, willing to put others before themselves in any and every situation. They believe their loyalty to the Shadowbinder will protect them always.

This is the history of the Clan of Misty Shadows. This is who we are.

Do you dare to enter?

be humble. the universe won't remember any of this. be gentle. we're lucky we made it as far as we did. be loving. we are all temporary. be thoughtful. everyone is terrified. be tranquil. none of this really matters. be sincere. there's nothing you could have done. be calm. you'll take it all with you. be trustful. we are all equally insignificant. be noble. we make our own meaning.

be hopeful. maybe our successors will do better than we did.

LOL, nothing so mysterious: in this case it's a portmanteau of his paternal grandparents' names plus the -th I add to every dragon I name myself! Plus his black coloring makes him fit it well. Thanks for the interest!

You can use any vista you've ever bought and apply it to any dragon's bio multiple times. Like, you don't have to keep buying the same vista over and over. You can reuse them for multiple bios all at the same time. <3 I hope that helps! I love your lair.

Okie dokie, so what you wanna do is go to an individual dragon's page and scroll down below their bio box. Under there you'll see an "edit" button, and a button with a "+" on it. That "+" will allow you to add a vista to your kid's personal bio.
