I am Dragon-Blooded
Terrestrial Exalted
Champion of Mela
the Elemental Dragon

            We channel Essence, the power of the cosmos, through our fingertips, our fists, our feet. Our blades are cast of jade, set with Hearthstones and never dull. We are the champions of the Five Elemental Dragons.

            The least among the Exalted in power, the Dragon-Blooded, alone among the Chosen, can increase their numbers through reproduction. The Dragon-Blooded were the rank and file of the champions of the gods in the war against those who came before the gods. In the late Old Realm, the Dragon-Blooded murdered the Solar Exalted at the behest of the Sidereal Exalted and usurped the rulership of the Realm. The Dragon-Blooded branded the Solar and Lunar Exalted Anathema and made the Immaculate Order the state religion. Today, almost no Dragon-Blooded know of these events, instead believing the stories of the Immaculate Order.

Red Shadow’s Past

Red Shadow carries the features of both his parents in about equal measure. He has his mother’s dark straight hair and has unusual white eyes. His skin color is somewhat similar to both his parents, pale bluish and very light in color. His skin has already started to become cold to the touch. He is relatively thin and lithe, which is fairly typical for an Air Aspect Dragon-Blooded.

Red Shadow is one of many children of Ejava and his father. This caused great joy with her wealthy family. Because of this and the fact that he seemed to have a good deal of wealth to support his new family, he was also popular with Ejava’s family having an exceptional bloodline increased his standing with her family. Heral is a legendry swordsman and martial artist, capable of amazing feats with his daiklaive or any other sword. He commands an entire dragon (500 soldiers), an elite group of troops ready to fight for him under his personal banner. He has also commanded legions in his time. Heral's heroism and leadership in battles especially against the Fair Folk, has increased his popularity and ability to lead soldiers.

            Ejava was the daughter of an eminent and very wealthy family from Blessed Isle. She has long dark straight hair and is a celebrated beauty in the Imperial Court, causing many of the handsome society men to pursue her. She is a graduate of the Heptagram and was an instructor there for a few years. She is a skilled healer and provided a great deal of help when she used her sorcerous powers to battle an incursion by the Fair Folk. This is where she met Heral and realized they were both very attracted to each other. After this Ejava maneuvered herself so she was frequently in his company and eventually Heral began to pursue her and then they began courting.

            Red Shadow’s family named him after an older and influential relative, who is a high-ranking patrician in the Thousand Scales in an effort to endear them to him.

            As a child in a very wealthy family (his mother and father’s families combined their fortunes) Red Shadow was well educated with many lessons, which he usually lacked any focus on.

            Red Shadow's father trained him until he became a very powerful fighter, even going to the expense of paying for tutors and trainers in the martial arts. Even though he could wield a sword skillfully, it was easier for him to fight without weapons, using martial arts. He was also interested in seeing new things and so while his father trained him to fight, his mother tried to teach him sorcery. Unfortunately Red Shadow could never cast any of the spells his mother showed him, as he could not control his Essence well enough at the time. She also taught him Gateway, as she is highly skilled at the game and all its variants.

            Upon completing his primary education Red Shadow had to endure nine rigorous examinations.

            For his secondary school education, Red Shadow was sent to the Cloister of Wisdom on the Blessed Isle, starting his education for the Immaculate Order. While there an instructor called Obsidian Tiger took an interest in him helping train and guiding him in the ways of the Fivefold Dragon Method.

            Red Shadow has discovered that he is to inherit a large amount of wealth from his parents and their families. To receive this award he must serve as an Immaculate Order Initiate for one year. The reason behind this is to make him more disciplined and ready to rule a house.

            It has been noticed that the blood of the Elemental Dragons flows strongly in his veins. It is patently obvious he is directly related to the Empress. He is clearly an aspect of Air and more than a mere mortal. His Anima is a mantle of a white light shining brightly through green trees with the wind moving the leaves.

            And so he was sent from the Blessed Isle of to a secret camp of House Iselsi at the Southern Pole of Fire to train as an assassin to help in the training of the next generation of Dragon-Blooded. While he was there he was trained in Ebon Shadow Style martial arts.
