          Physical Aperance

All dragonborn share the same generall physical traits with the only noticable differences being in head shape and scale colour which will reflect their dragon heritage. For example bronze dragonborn wll have bronze scales and their head will be narrower and more closly resemble a beak, where as a red dragonborn will have red scales and a flater face with better pronounced horns on the back of its head. As a general rule though dragonborn will have a snout that protrudes from its face. This snout is usually wide and flat. A dragonborns entire body is covered in scales and they usually will have frills at the side of their neck which will go up or down depending on how agitated the dragonborn is.These scales are thick accross the top of the chest, around the eyes, and on top of the head. Their scales are thinnest at the back of the leg and on the neck. Their hands are similar to that of a humans with four fingers and an opposable thumb although all of their fingers end in sharp claws instead of nails. They have three large toes at the front of their foot and a fourth out the back which is used to help the dragonborn keep its balance. Lastly all dragonborn are in possesions of a tail a;lthough the main purpose it has is to help reflect the mood of its owner as few people other than fellow dragonborn can read a dragonborn's facial expression. The tail can be used however as an offensive weapon to trip or hold an opponent.

​Chromatic Dragonborn

Culture

The chromatic dragonborn generally live in small tribes consisting of 10- 50 dragonborn although in times of war or great struggle this number can rise up to 500. These dragonborn will live and die by the tribe they are raised in and will rarely leave willingly. The tribe is ruled by a chief who is usually the strongest warrior. If a young warrior wishes to claim leadership of the tribe he must declar a formal challenge, and the two will duel at an arranged time the next day if it is accepted. The combatants are always armed with their weapon of choice. A duel will usually only go till one of the combatants submits although it is not oncommon for someone to die. Chiefs may also step down from their position, in which case they will name their sucessor. However this is rarely done as such a proclamation will almost guarentee bloodshed in the tribe as warriors clamour to come out as the new chief.

NOTE:  All none dragonborn male or female are taught how to fight almost as soon a they can walk, and both females and males are capable of leading a tribe.

Fighting Styles:

The chromatic dragonborn are terrifying warriors focusing more on pure rage and savage strength than finese, and unless they show an inate ability to preform magic they are trained to be some of the most skilled warriors in Prora. These dragonborn have also developed a martial art which allows them to focus their inner soul into physical effects. As for the ones that have magic alraedy in their bones, they are often turned over to one of the other magiv users in the tribe who will take the youngling away for weeks at a time to help harness the youths new found power.

The black dragonborn like there true dragon counterpart are very sadistic. Instead of killing their foes they prefer to knock them unconsious take them back to the tribe, and then torture them to death leaving one or two prisioners alive to return home with word of what happened to them and the other members of their group. They are fairly solitary with in the larger tribe and do not allow others to get close to them.

The metallic dragonborn are governed by a strict set of laws which are upheld rigidly by the large military of the Scaled Kingdoms. These laws are set by the dragoncouncil which is comprised of five true dragons (one for each colour) who reside in the various cities. The punishments for breaking these laws are very harsh and as such all the citizens of the Scaled Kingdoms are very law abidding society. The smallest of these punishements is lashes with a studded whip (a whip with metal stups designed to pierce scales). After a dragonborn is 10 though any crime past petty theft is met with death, and a planned murder is cause for melting by a copper dragon/ dragonborn. Kobolds are also accepted amoung metallic society although they usually end up as caretakers for the members of the dragon council or slaves.

Fighting Styles

The Scaled Kingdoms have a very specific type of group fighting. this usually involves a full on charge against the enemy with a barrage of breath weapons just before contact. This allows them to startle their enemy as well as utilize their large size and wheight to their advcantage. Scaled Kingdom warriors have the most skilled military in the world with the vast majority comprised of career soldiers. A regular soldier will have a large tower shield and a longsword with bronze armour strapped to the forearm, calves, and biceps, and a metal cap designed to fit the peculiar head shape of the dragonborn. These groups are also always acompanied by a magic user who is either a wizard or sorcerer. These magic users are almost indistinguishable from an ordinary warrior except for the large lightining tattoo on their neck which is capable of showing through the thin scales located there.
