Don't you limit your mind
Can't you see that the message
Have fallen behind
All the hate in your heart
Will be leaving you blind!
Clan Green Flame
Climate: Eastern most part of the world in dense forests
Clan Structure: The Green Flame dia and its two other ji clans are unique compared to the dia in drakkhani society. Why? Because they are the only dia groups that practice and heavily encourage the use of magic and magical craft.
These drakkhani inhabit forests east ward of the Kalijani and their territories. This was once high elf territory but over the centuries is became inhabited by wood or arboreal elves which are much more feral than the more ‘domesticated’ mountain elves. It’s also home to wild wood dragons, the only species of dragon that has not been hunted down to extinction, save the tundra wyrms of the far north where the Wintervale live.
The Green Flame has two other ji families that branch off from the main family. The Malachite dia lives north east while the Jade Claws live south of them. The Jade Claws often share territory with the monokiri or unicorn fauns that inhabit the woodlands. They trade with them often gaining materials that most other sapient races in Roannorra can’t obtain legally (hair, chips of alicorn…).
As previously stated they are clan of mages. While in general the clan operates much like a typical drakkhani dia (children are raised communally, there is a council of elders, and they migrate) however unlike the animistic traditions of most dia, these clans study high and ceremonial magic. The operate schools teaching elf and human alike on elemental spell casting. There are three main schools that they run. The main family teaches basic conjuration and elemental working. Jade Claws are more like druids. They use elemental magic to care for gardens, and use herbal working. Malachite is more ceremonial mages they use alchemy to enchant weapons and armor. They are also the only clan that writes down their tomes and spell working in the Common language; they often trade these books with human mage collages for their materials and spells. Their school have been regarded the hub of the magical world. Many young magicians and mages educate themselves by venturing to the Malachite school to hone their skills.
However there is a dark side. The Malachite often preforms human sacrifices. These are never witnessed outside of their main aerie and very few humans know about it. These sacrifices are a great honor to some humans who are often raised to be an offering to the High Goddess. The humans raised to be sacrifices are always orphans and are willing offerings.
The Green Flames have blue eyes and deep green to sage green skin. The have brown striping down their backs and arms; also they have bifurcated tails. A unique anomaly for drakkhani; horns and talons are dark yellow hair is brown or black. They also wear clothing, because of the various races they teach. It’s a not out of modesty but an act of comfort to the other races. In their own private aeries they are unclothed as usual. Their emblem is a green flame with a pentacle in the middle. Jade Claws have three flames and the Malachite have a seven pointed star instead of a pentacle in their flame.
The name Green Flame is play on their magic. The can use a spell to turn their fire breath, green for a short period of time.
Clan allies and foes: They are tense with the Sunwings west of them. But have decent relations with Glasswings. They are not fond of mountain elves but will educate wood elves and humans. They are not fond of human warriors.
