"Her father stood on the first of the three stairs that led down from the portal, unmoving. The scales of his face had grown paler around the edges, but Clanless Mehen still looked as if he could wrestle down adire bear himself. His familiar well-worn armor was gone, replaced by violet-tinted scale armor with bright silvery tracings. There was a blazon on his arm as wel, the mark of some foreign house. The sword at his back was the same, though, the one he had carried since even before he had found the twins left in swaddling at the gates of Arush Vayem. For all her life, Farideh had known that reading her father's face was a skill she'd been fortunate to learn. A human couldn't spot the shift of her eyes or Havilar's would certainly only see only the indifference of a dragon in Clanless Mehen's face. But the shift of scales, the arch of a ridge, the set of his eyes, the gape of his teeth--her father's face spoke volumes. But every scale of it, this time, seemed completely still--the indifference of a dragon, even to Farideh" - Erin M. Evans, The Adversary
Born of dragons, as their name proclaims, the dragonborn walk proudly through a world that greets them with fearful incomprehension. Shaped by draconic gods or the dragons themselves, dragonborn originally hatched from dragon eggs as a unique race, combining the best attributes of dragons and humanoids. Some dragonborn are faithful servants to true dragons, others form the ranks of soldiers in great wars, and still others find themselves adrift, with no clear calling in life.

Proud Dragon KinEdit
Dragonborn look very much like dragons standing erect in humanoid form, though they lack wings or a tail. The first dragonborn had scales of vibrant hues matching the colors of their dragon kind, but generations of interbreeding have created a more uniform appearance. THeir small, fine scales are usually brass or bronze in color, sometimes ranging to scarlet, rust, gold, or copper-green. They are tall and strongly built, often standing close to 6 1/2 feet tall and weighing 300 pounds or more. THeir hands and feet are strong, talonlike claws with three fingers and a thumb on each hand. The blood of a typical type of dragon runs very strong through some dragonborn clans. These dragonborn often boast cales that more closely match those of their dragon ancestor-- bright red, green, blue, or white, lustrous black, or gleaming metallic gold, silver, brass, copper, or bronze.
To any dragonborn, the clan is more important than life itself. Dragonborn owe their devotion and respect to their clan above all else, even the gods. Each dragonborn's conduct reflects on the honor of his or her clan, and bringing dishonor to the clan can result in expulsion and exile. Each dragonborn knows his or her station and duties within the clan, and honor demands maintaining the bounds of that position. A continual drive for self-improvement reflects the self-sufficiency of the race as a whole. Dragonborn value skill and excellence in all endeavors. The hate to fail, and they push themselves to extreme efforts before they give up on something. A dragonborn holds mastery of a particular skill as a lifetime goal. Memers of other races who share the same commitment find it easy to earn the respect of a dragonborn. THough all dragonborn strive to be self-sufficient, they recognize that help is sometimes needed in difficut situations. But the best source ofr such help is the clan, and when a clan needs help, it turns to another dragonborn clan before seeking aid from other races--or even from the gods.
