Second Daughter to Queen Mortichia Windsong
From the city Cloudspire, a castle situated at the peak of the tallest mountain high above the clouds. The castle itself is made of pure silver diamonds. My village consists of all women, and I am the last remaining shapeshifting Draken. The Cloudspire High Priestess has heard from the Silver spark and has sent me on a quest to find the Dragon stone a large silver diamond, which will glow with a light purple hue upon getting close to the chosen one. It is said it can be found in the coldest region of the land. The silver sparks only clue as to how I will find this stone is “I will know where to go when I get close.” I am also told that I will need the aid of friends to obtain my goal as there is a powerful creature guarding the stone. So, I have set out on this journey in search of this stone to bring peace once again to my people.
Silver Spark: Goddess of ice, shapeshifting, clarity, logic, purity, kindness, and courage
Tale of Saphera
Have you ever had this feeling of dread? Knowing something bad is going to happen and yet knowing you can do nothing to stop it. This feeling happens once every 200 years since I was but a hatchling. Come closer and I shall tell you the story of the purge.
About 800 years ago my great grandmother Her Royal Highness Queen Ava of Cloudspire became an elder of the tribe and gained the ability to fashion gemstones from ordinary rocks. It is a process that was held as a great dragon secret until that day 800 years ago when a greedy dwarf came upon Ava while she was fashioning a gem from a rare piece of white carbon. The most beautiful silver diamond was being made from her own dragons breath, but making a stone of this size requires a lot of time and energy.
By the time it was finished she was exhausted but stood back to look at the most beautiful stone she had ever seen and sent a thanks to the silver spark. The silver spark, pleased with the Queen, blessed the stone with great abilities allowing the women of the city to transform, a power which before had been reserved for only the men and the royal family.
After the diamond was paraded through the city it was returned to Ava to help her heal and rest with the healing song of the gem. While she slept the Dwarf snuck in and stole the beautiful silver diamond slaying the Queen in the process. When my grandmother her highness princess Anastasia went to find her mother a few days later she was greeted instead with the sight of her mothers dead decaying corpse.
Now the dwarf made one major mistake he dropped a gold coin with his clans seal on the ground of the cave. Anastasias cry for the dwarfs head and her agony at her mothers death was felt by each dragon in the realm. Every dragon took up arms as allies to seek revenge for the wrong done to the Silver dragons and to get their own retribution for other smaller wrongs done to them. Each dragon felt the pain of the loss of one of our own for the theft of a gemstone. We swore to get the stone back and get revenge on the dwarves and any that stood in our way, for the mistake of one dwarf all the dwarves would pay with their lives.
The dwarf took shelter in the cities of his allies of almost every species on his way back to his people. Each city was told to hand over the dwarf or where he was travelling or we would destroy the city. They all laughed at the petite human women until each human turned into large dragons and more came out of the skies from behind the clouds. All that was left as they continued tracking the dwarf was a black smear where the city use to be.
Finally the dwarf had been tracked back to his own keep where he showed his prize to the king, his triumph did not last long. Anastasia and her army came down on the dwarves but during the battle the dwarves released a creature which took off with the gem and it was lost forever.
Over the first 200 years the species on land thrived and regrew their populations while the women of Cloudspire lost their ability to turn and bear sons, many dragon clans lost members for their scales and blood to cast magic. After 200 years the purge happened once more as revenge for the women of Cloudspire and the dragons murdered for spell components. Then the men of Cloudspire lost their ability to turn as well as their long lives, many died after only 100 years. And once again 400 years after the gem went missing the dragons took revenge.
Finally even the royal family began to lose their ability to turn. We were forced to breed with dragons outside the city of Cloudspire as our men had died off years ago. This caused our mages to have other abilities than just ice magic. I was born almost 400 years ago. I am the last shapeshifting dragon in Cloudspire, my mother lost her ability to turn shortly after my birth.
I was different from the other dragons, I did not despise the other species many I called my friends, but I could never show them my true self. 200 years ago the purge came over me, I saw images as far back as 600 years, I felt the agony, pain and hatred all over again. I forgot myself, I don’t remember that night just the memories of all the wrongs ever done to the dragons over the ages. I returned after the purge finished to find my friends dead. I fled back to Cloudspire and had remained there searching for a way to end the purge, a way for the realm to earn the forgiveness of the dragons…
“I can feel the purge approaching again, I just hope I can find a way for the realm to earn the forgivness of the dragons before it is too late…” -Saphera
Come up the mountain if you dare, for you will never return; For if the cold, snow and wind do not kill you, surely the guardians of the castle gates will. If you survive all that and make it in the civilization living in the castle walls will never let you leave, for they have dark secrets in that castle and nothing is as it seems…
Welcome to Cloudspire, the ancestral home of the Silver Ice Dragons.
