    The Blue Dragonflight

    ((Dont mind this! Just posting this here for Combat to take a peep at.))


    "I believe that you will find that my gift to you is not just a profound duty—which it is—but also a delight—which it is! Magic must be regulated, managed, and controlled. But it must also be appreciated and valued and not hoarded. Such is the contradiction you must deal with. May you be dutiful ... and joyous both." - Alragon's Blessing of the Blue Aspect.

    The Blue Dragonflight are dragons that have blue-white scales and can breath frost or arcane magic. During the ordering of Sevilidan, the Deity Alragon blessed Taragos and his flight with power over the arcane and the duty of ensuring it would never be abused. Taragos and his mate Casragoth ruled the blue flight until the conflicts of the Dragonflights when the other Dragonflights had began focusing on the Blue Dragonflight. Wiping out a majority of their Kin. This conflict continued on until Dragons as a whole became scarce and for the majority had been wiped clean off of Sevilidan. Leaving only Taragos and very few eggs to continue the legacy of the Blue Dragonflight.


    Magic is what most concerns the members of the Blue Dragonflight. Acquiring it, researching it, cataloging it. Blue dragons are masters of the arcane and the wield it with a natural, almost intrinsic, ease. Even the flight's dragonspawn armies are flush with magical aptitude. The blues believe that with this power comes a certain responsibility and so members of the blue flight can often be found in positions policing and monitoring the use of magic by non-dragons.

    Historically, blue dragons have had a reputation for spending their days in solitary contemplation of the secrets of the world, but in recent times blue dragons have proved to be more social due to the growing threats to all living creatures. Their approach towards mortals, specificly arcane spellcasters, can vary anywhere from amiable curiosity to outright hostility. Although this has been shown to be false sometimes as well, considering the Blue Dragonflight is what gave knowledge of the Arcanes to the Mortals of Sevilidan.

    Blue dragonkin are sometimes refered to as Azure, Cobalt or Sapphire. When taking humanoid form, most blue dragons prefer to transform into Humans, though Gnome and High Elven guises are also common.

    Nomenclature

    Members of the blue dragonflight most often have names ending in "gos" for males, or "gosa" for females. Sometimes synonyms of the word "blue", or terms relating to spellcasting find their way into their names as well.

    Culture

    Society

    Taragos is said to have established magic itself and created all the spells that set the sky and earth into motion. While he is not revered as a god, for blue dragons see no godhood in scientific fact, he is considered the greatest scientific mind ever to have existed in the multiverse—or, at least, his flight considers him so. Blue dragons have a natural affinity for spellcasting, and most powers of sorcery are instinct even to young drakes. Because of their natural propensity for magic, they have high magic resistances and can withstand many magical attacks. They are also the masters of frost, their breath weapon can drain enemies' magic energy, an effect the blue dragons term "withdrawing Taragos's favor." Blues find all forms of ice and water welcome, most making their lairs in the frozen peaks of mountains or in caverns near, or under, freezing water.

    Blue dragons are a bit xenophobic, keeping to their territories and maintaining their own studies without interference. They are highly territorial, largely due to their paranoia that any intruder wandering into their lairs are probably agents of the black dragonflight, and won't hesitate to attack if his territory is invaded. Under such circumstances, a blue dragon is as violent and destructive as any black dragon. In previous years, blue dragons even attacked each other over territorial disputes, but such conflicts are unlikely now that so many dragons have adapted to living in groups for protection.

    In modern days blue dragons are rare and difficult to find, thus their society does not have a rigid hierarchy. Although some great blue dragons remain in the world, they are few and far between, studying their magic almost to the exclusion of all else. All blue dragons serve Taragos with roughly equal standing, although there are some ancient dragons who are considered authority figures simply due to their great knowledge and mastery of magic. In essence, it is a society ruled by the powerful, but in a group of intellectuals such as these any real ranking system would do nothing but cause endless debate. Males and females have equal standing in blue dragon society, although usually it is the female who chooses her mate. With a few exceptions, blue dragons usually take only a single mate, and they are immensely protective of their mates and children. Female blue dragons sometimes stalk and observe a potential mate in a number of different forms to gauge the male’s worth before revealing themselves.

    Studies

    Blue dragons are the undisputed masters of magic, their culture revolving around the study and cataloging of magic and spells, primarily but not exclusively arcane magic. They focus on advancing in spellcasting ability, and the acquisition of knowledge and greater magical power to the exclusion of almost everything else, but this is not to say they are single minded. Rather, the dragons are extremely loyal, and know that Alragon gave their master his domain so that they would use their magic to keep the world safe. As such, the "proper" use of magic is a matter of great importance to the dragons — while blue dragons are naturally curious about the use of warlock magic and the like, they consider such forms of magic to be perversions of nature. For this reason, warlocks and necromancers are considered enemies of the dragonflight, although the dragons have higher priorities on their hit list — namely every living black dragon. In their pursuit of magic, blue dragons infiltrate mortal societies in humanoid forms to learn more about how mortals practice spellcasting. While some dragons have engaged in this activity for centuries, it has been widespread only since Taragos's recent recovery from years of insanity.

    Mentality

    The Blue Dragonflight is focused on the pursuit of ever greater power and knowledge. This doesn't make them completely egocentric; the dragons share what they learn to help others of their kind as well as the world in general. Many blue dragons strive to impress their master, Taragos, with their knowledge of magic, or invent new spells or magic items. Members of the Blue Dragonflight value other thinkers, including spellcasters, engineers, writers, artists and general academic types. If a mortal shows a blue dragon a spell he has never seen, they earn that dragon’s respect. If they teach the dragon that spell, the mortal likely gains the dragon's gratitude for a lifetime — and blues live a very long time. Generally, members of the Blue Dragonflight consider adventurers in general to be kindred spirits, but they highly favor those who are clever, inventive and powerful.

    I like the idea of a blue dragonflight, abit like in WoW. But the thing is we'd need to change this up a little so it doesnt so closely resemble WoW's version.
    AKA: Same name etc.
