Information About Dragon Quests

Fluff: Dragons are large fire breathing flying lizard-like creatures who are considered to be the creations of Drulkar, the fire god. They are very arrogant and have a superiority complex, as a whole, and are very fond of shiny objects and metals.
When the Gift was bestowed upon the living races, it screwed with natural dragon growth, requiring them to go through a spiritual rite of passage before they could grow in body.

Dragons have two factions: Lunus, an ancient faction that are proud of their warrior tradition and strength. They seek to dominate all of the other races of Istaria and to make them bow before their might. The Helians are a more ‘recent’ faction, focusing on the good they can do in the world. They seek to uplift the lesser races, to make them bow before superior knowledge and wisdom to the benefit of all.
The factions tend to favor different styles of education and also tend to dislike each other immensely, though associatiations are kept carefully cordial to prevent a severe civil war, with only the gifted able to rise above this in any way.

A spell typically is taught to young dragons that allows them to take on a biped form. Although some dislike the form, and dislike the other races of istaria, it has become obvious that dealings with them are unavoidable and being a big lizard creature sometimes makes this difficult.
So many use their biped, known as a khutit, form for general purposes. Its also useful for getting into buildings not built to a dragon’s proportions, and it allows dragons to use weapons they would normally not be able to.
Its a rough transformation that takes alot of concentration and due to the lesser needs of the khutit body, some dragons in Naka society stay in their khutit forms and shift to dragon form on occasion. When among dragons, this is reversed.
