Character Nickname(s): None, he has no time for such things.
Age / Date of Birth [If Known]: 3rd day of Wailan, 205. That makes him about 27.
Class / Job: Mercenary
Gender: Male

Relatives:
Parents: His parents are just like him, Dragonlings, but they are a feral species of this kind, acting more like beasts than he does. They were killed when fighting over territory.

Siblings: Well, this is the interesting part. His kind lay eggs and in order to ensure the whole "Survival of the Fittest" they pit the newly hatched Dragonlings against each other in a battle based on instinct. There is only one survivor per litter, Morgorin was the fittest.

Height / Weight: 6’ 9” about 300 lbs of pure muscle.

Other Physical Qualities / Appearances: Morgorin has prominent wings that support his body in flight. He also has a tail that he uses somewhat like a club. One of his strangest traits (beside the wing and tail) are the gun metal gray scales on his extremities. His skin is dark gray, nearly black as well as his hair.

Morgorin’s eyes, in contrast to the rest of his body, are flaming orange with slightly elongated pupils.

Mental Qualities / Personality: Morgorin is quite clever, as is most of his kind.

Morgorin is quick to anger and spiteful. He is conserved, though, when in the prescience of a perspective employer. Morgorin is an ambitious young... thing... and this may drive him to double cross and deceive when he may profit from it.

Background / History: Dragonlings are "cursed" beings that have been hunted and are now forced to live on small islands throughout the world. The dragonling race is more civilized than originally thought, though they do have some rather barbaric traditions. The basic structure of Dragonlings is tribes, based on what traits of their original dragon forms they have. The most dragon like tribe is the Egoroba, all members of Egoroba have long snouts, webbed ears, claws, horns, wings, tails, and scales covering all parts of their bodies. The second most dragon like, which Morgorin is part of, is the Karngroron. All members of Karngroron have scales over their extremities (and sometimes undersides), hair on their heads, wings, tails, and otherwise human like traits. The other two tribes are the Kazgi (useless tails & wings, and some scales) and Konath (Scales covering their whole body). Each tribe has a strict social caste system, based on coloration. It is not known what the other tribes social class is to the other tribes, this is to prevent killing off of especially high ranking members of society. In Morgorin's tribe the caste system goes as follows : Green, Black, White, Blue, and Red. Morgorin falls under the High-Middle class of black, even though his scales are technically dark gray (as all are). Not all tribes have all colors, the metallic ones tending to be in Kazgi, and especially bright colors being especially constant on Egoroba. Tribes also were separated in their magic and belief systems, though they are also unknown to the other tribes. The Karngroron believe in their god Karn, the god of civilization. He takes the form of a full grown dragon and is the patron of the storm. Their magic, corresponding with their god, is Storm magic, using lightning strikes and heavy winds to fight battles at times. In order to use their magic they need only clear their minds of everything but what they want to happen and to hold a hand to the sky. This can take anywhere from several minutes to merely a second, depending on their skill. They need no magi, still having some of their abilities from the dragon ancestors.

Morgorin started his life as an egg, waiting to hatch. When this finally occurred he was the first egg to hatch, making his odds greatest to win in the gambling of the eggs. (The gambling of the eggs is the contest described under siblings). Morgorin survived the gambling easily, defeating his fellows in less than half and hour. He was then dubbed Morgorin, after the original dragonling of his clan. He lived a normal childhood and grew to a tallish size. His fondest memories are, even now, his constant battles with the other tribes and attempted genocide of the Konath. (The Konath were the outcasts and were considered disgusting by the other tribes.) His battle and magic skill gained him respect and honor among his own kind and word eventually reached the few rogue sailors that landed on the forbidden Isles in search of adventure. He began to get bored with the battles on the island, having his tribe now unchallenged, and began learning the common language used on the sea. He took off with sailors who paid him a large sum of money to fight for them. His story has been interesting from there.

Equipment / Clothing:
Sword: Morgorin owns one sword, which he received through his battles with his brethren. The grip of the sword is in the shape of a dragon with two rubies for eyes, somehow fitting perfectly to Morgorin's hand. The pommel contains one bright yellow gemstone, though what type it is is unknown. The guard in in the shape of scaly arms wrapping around and meeting at a large Peridot, the claws gripping the stone. The blade of Morgorin's sword is shaped into three prongs, with sharpened tips and edges. This makes it effective in stabbing especially, though it is not lacking in slashing effectively.

Poison Daggers: Morgorin carries an array of poisonous daggers, with varying poisons for varying purposes. These are his weapon of choice in sneak attacks, assassinations (He can throw them if need be), and when he does not intend to kill.

Knives: Morgorin recently... acquired... two wonderfully crafted fighting knifes. The knives double as brass knuckles and can endure most of the abuse Morgorin would ever put them through. These are his weapons of choice in hand-to-hand combat and he uses them more than his other weapons.

Morgorin wears a dark suit of light (in weight) armor, though it is able to repel light arrows and some light blows from a sword. The armor used to carry a crest that features an eye overlaying a lightning bolt to symbolize his clan, though this has recently rubbed off from use. The color is similar to his skin and scales in color and is very hard to spot in a dark alley...

Other Information: This characters race was not originally created by me, though it has been most recently perfected by me. I have come up with an entire culture based on this race, and an entire world history for them. This is only a very small portion of what I have done with the race and this character.
