List of Known Dragons
- Con rit
Within the Dragon Realm, dragons are divided into six different clans based on their elemental origin. These clans are distinguished as flame dragons, river dragons, gaia dragons, sky dragons, abyss dragons and aurora dragons. Each of the clans exist as the polar opposite to another clan. Flame dragons are the opposite to river dragons, gaia dragons are the opposite to sky dragons and abyss dragons are the oposite to aurora dragons.
The clans often remain in their respective territories but have be known to coexist peacefully, with the exception of the abyss dragons, known for their violent and aggressive nature.
While a single dragon from the clans of flame, river, gaia and sky are elected as members of the Dragon Council, each clan has it's own internal government style. Within each of the clans, there is a single ruler that governs and protects the best interests of the clans. This ruler is referred to as the King, for males, or Queen, for females.
The role of a King or Queen differs from a council dragon in that while a council dragon works with other council members for peaceful coexistence with other clans, a King or Queen looks out for their respective clans and must rule with a strong and open heart. The welfare of all clan members and clan survival rests on the shoulders of the King/Queen. The current Kings and Queens of their clans are Vulcan of the flame dragons, Tiamat of the river dragons, Loam of the gaia dragons, Aveer of the sky dragons and Irra of the aurora dragons.

The Dragon Realm has existed for several thousand years, though it's exact origins are unknown. Dragons are typically orgnanized in tribes based on their element and their habitat. These clans consist of flame dragons of fire, river dragons of water, gaia dragons of eart, sky dragons of air, abyss dragons of darkness and aurora dragons of light. While each of the clans maintained their distance from each other, the abyss and aurora dragons, who had been in conflict with each other for centuries, broke out into war, leading to the Abyss-Aurora War. This lasted for several centuries before the aurora dragons finally pulled through victorious. However, the numbers of the abyss dragons were greatly cut down.
This led to the formation of their main system of government is the Dragon Council, a group of elder dragons specially selected in hopes of mainting peaceful coexistance between all dragons. The Dragon Realm exhibits capital punishment: anyone who kills another dragon is also killed in return. Azreal is the only one known to have escaped his punishment as his father was on the Dragon Council.
A common rite of passage among all dragons is the colosseum battle, which is also a popular entertainment. Dragons often battle each other in colosseums for amusement and competition purposes, but nearly all teen dragons are required to participate in order to be recognized as adults.
