So with the completion of Ute'quera's battler design, (this)
I thought I would talk about the lore of the Dragons of SR:MT and the over reaching Shattered Realms lore.
Now Dragons, depending on what world we're talking, are in general your European style dragons, with varying styles of form, though strange and unusual variations exist. However the dragons with four legs, wings, tail, and head, those are what I would call the True Dragons, which are rare. The more common, less powerful but still threatening types are the Drakes. Below them are Wyverns and Dragonkin, humanoid dragons.
Those are your usual kind of dragon. There exists others even still. The most vile of them are the Accursed or Twisted Dragons, most commonly known as Black Dragons. They are distinguished by a very prominent deep dark purple or blue/violet, rarely are they truly black, the most corrupt of them are true black dragons. There are more, but I will not mention them here.
The origin of the dragons comes back to the foundation of life on the worlds themselves. There were once two races, the Dragons, created by the Primordial of Order, Umetherial, and the Dijra, human like beings which would become the template for gods later, created by the Primordial of Chaos, Apothis.
Apothis, not being one to like such things as Order, wanted the two races to destroy each other.
To this end, he convinced a young dragon to attack the Dijra. Upon doing so, the two races began to slowly escalate into a war that would put the gods and their current conflicts to shame. Upon Umetherial realizing what had happened, he had no way to describe the willing desire to destroy other life the young dragon had within it, so he gave rise to two new Primoridals, the Primordial of Good, and the Primordial of Evil. He then scattered both the Dijra and the Dragons across the universes, cursing all of the dragons who willingly followed the Young Dragon into mutated, impure forms. The Young Dragon was given a far worse fate. He became the Primeval Sin, a hideous black dragon who would represent the purest form of wickedness and malice, ridden of all mind and reason.
All the dragons that still chose to follow Primeval Sin became further cursed into the Accursed Dragons, who to this day continue to wreak havoc across the worlds.
Because of their relation with Order and Chaos, dragons are usually found in times of extreme chaos and war for one of two reasons: to quell the chaos, or to drive it further. In SR:MT, the awakening of Ute'quera marks the eventual return of Dragons to the world, who until now have slumbered deep beneath the world, and a new age of chaos is about to begin.
I play video games, write, make art, create music, design video games, and have a deep love of fantasy.
