Quoth the Sarkany:

“Dragons bad? Not so! Why look at all the great Draconian creatures throughout mythology that aided mortal man… Uhm… Asia has good ones, right?”

Kith Excerpt:

There are a plethora of Dragonesque Tribes from across the varied Dreaming realms. Each Tribe has their own self-narratives of glory and greed, great powers and greater still hungers. Their Sárkány do too. Their name means “Dragon serpent” and they were instrumental in aiding the wizards of old in conquering the forests, dashing through the stormy skies and unleashing havoc on the world below. The modern Sárkány of the Lands Beyond the Forest, however, seek to change these stories- allowing the Dragons of antiquity to play the part of the hero.

This Draconian Vâlvă (Kith) is one of the misunderstood of all the Vântoase (Changeling), and one of the most Sanziene (Seelie), they hold themselves to strict codes of nobility and altruism. If their stories are to be changed, then they must live up to those changes in their daily lives. From the moment of their Saining, their Fae lives are spent creating a better life for themselves and those around them. However, there are those who will always come into their life.

In an ancient pact forged by the Dreaming and those clever naming mortals among the mages, the Sárkány will forever “serve” as loyal steeds of the Garabonciás. Of course, the Sárkány are under no compulsion to aid just any Wizard, and certain criterion must be met by both parties before such relationships can be fruitful. If such a Garabonciás is good of heart and can help craft a better picture of the modern dragons, then they have an ally in the fight against evil.



“Perhaps I cannot make my people good, she told herself,
but I should at least try to make them a little less bad.”
