Who is the Empress?

19 June, 2009

Firstly, an apology, there was a big fire in downtown Athens, GA, which disrupted my morning leading to the lateness of this post, but luckily no one seems to have been hurt by it.


The Dragon Empress is an enigma, undoubtably the most powerful being in the entire Sea of Stars, she is rarely seen and acts even more rarely.  What is known of  her – her name has been sorcerously erased from the knowledge of the world- is that she was not the strongest, nor the eldest, nor the richest of the dragons, but she was the most charismatic and clever.   She spread the philosophy of Dominae, putting into words what the dragons felt, that the strong alone deserve to rule.

Over more than half a millennium, she built a conspiracy among the dragons, cajoling, bribing and manipulating her kin into a unified force.  It was a difficult and dangerous path, she debated, and occasional fought, those who opposed her vision, out thought her enemies and survived hunters.  But slowly, all the dragons fell in line behind her vision.

Then, as one, the dragons rose into the heaven to cast down the gods.  The losses were tremendous, we know all of the Empress’ children perished in the war, but the dragons were victorious.  The Sun was captured, the islands bound and the future of the world was saved.  With the aid of her Seven Stars, her inner circle of dragons, she structured the Empire, divided the lands among the dragons and withdrew from the public eye to administer it.  It is said she knows everything that happens in the Sea of Stars, but surely that cannot be true.

Her appearance?  That of a white-gold dragon of a beautiful line and terrible visage, not exceptionally large but of great grace and poise.  But she is rarely seen in public even in her own capital.
