15. Does your clan have a council? An elected group of dragons in power?
I mean, power is, of course, influenced by popularity, but in the end, Envy makes all the decisions. She’s just smart enough to listen to the clan.
17. Who protects the clan? Who is in charge of battling/guarding?
Almost… everyone? The raiders and guards sort of cycle. Anyone and everyone is called onto the battlefield if things get bad. Boring answer, I know. The Day Guard, of course, is almost always in charge of defense and enforcing laws and such during the day.
23. How does your clan educate younger dragons? Is there a scribe, scholar, or mentor?
There isn’t a official mentor. Brunhild, Moss, and occasionally Envy train the nocturnal kids in hand-to-hand combat, while Tamara and Arevik handle magic. Arevik also teaches healing. The Day Guard also teaches hand-to-hand combat and magic, though if you want to be a healer, you need to stay up late with Arevik.
Otherwise, young dragons just gravitate towards dragons that specialize in something they like. The adults are expected to teach when a young one requests it.
38. Does your clan have a set of rules or guidelines for the members? What happens if a dragon breaks these rules?
Yep! Like all kingdoms, the list is pretty long, but it includes all the typical stuff. Quite boring, actually. You have to get a license to raise the dead, don’t eat the neighbors’ pets, blah blah blah blah.
The punishment depends on the offense. It’s quite harsh, ranging from fines to death. Just knocking offenders around or throwing them out and banishing them is typical for the “medium” range.
