Ages ago, the now-frozen Fortress of Ends was a penitentiary for evildoers across all of Sornieth. Appointed by the Icewarden to apprehend and watch over these prisoners were The Wardens, the most dedicated and fierce dragons of the Southern Icefields.

Unbeknownst to this majority, the Wardens are alive and well - and still pursuing the evils of the world in the name of the Icewarden.

Operating all across Sornieth, The Wardens are as Ice as Ice Flight gets; they make perfect ambassadors and representatives for their home flight.

Fugitives

Made up of dragons from every flight, color, and breed, Fugitives are escapees who were convicted of a crime and managed to slip away from The Wardens before they were transported to the Fortress of Ends or any other internment facility. Only one thing can mark a dragon as a Fugitive: the ancient, eternal shackles used by The Wardens to capture their prisoners.



Should no shackles be available, or deemed not enough, The Wardens are also known to use Icicle Chains to bind the wings of their prisoners. The chains are often seen on dragons being transported, as they prevent the prisoner from attempting to fly away. Those who escape with the chains are in for a very difficult run from the law.



Only the presence of the shackles or chains can correctly identify a dragon as a Fugitive. Regular escapees have not yet been convicted of a crime, and though actively pursued by The Wardens, cannot be physically identified as easily.

Criteria

Flight: Ice

Breed: Any

Primary Color: White, Moon, Ice, Orca, Cornflower, Sky, Stonewash
Primary Gene: Any

Secondary Color: White, Moon, Ice, Orca, Corflower, Sky, Stonewash
Secondary Gene: Any

Tertiary Color: White, Moon, Ice, Orca, Cornflower, Sky, Stonewash
Tertiary Gene: Any

The best Wardens are typically triple Ice, or the colors of the Icewarden (Ice/Sky/White). However, other shades of white and blue have been observed among those who pass the trials, and these dragons are still good at what they do.

Because dragons who are of the "wrong" colors so often fail the trials, senior Wardens rarely accept them at all, choosing instead to send them away. Rare cases of differently colored Wardens have been documented, but one must present a very strong case to be accepted.

Dragons who do not fit the color criteria may be presented with a lore snippet to be considered for Wardenship. This snippet must be about the dragon in question going before the senior ranking Wardens at the Fortress of Ends and pleading their case to be allowed to undergo the trials. If the lore is good enough, the Wardens may accept these dragons into their ranks.

The Nightflowers Guild

This group of rogues was once a target of The Wardens, seen as a danger to the good of Sornieth to be brought down. In time, however, senior Wardens began to realize that targets of The Nightflowers, after being hit, were often ousted as being greedy and crooked, using their positions of power to benefit themselves and no one else. Word spread through the Warden ranks as private investigations were conducted to further prove the purpose of The Nightflowers. Now, the order tends to look away when wealthy dragons are targeted by the guild... only to look back when the targets are convicted of previously unknown crimes.

Eightleaf Town

In another layer of reality within Sornieth another force serves the Icewarden in the pursuit of justice and order: the policedragons of the Southern Icefield. Though initiates of the Wardens don't know of them - or even of these parallel dimensions called "layers" - all are told in time. Likewise, only those policedragons higher up the chain - except in special cases - are aware of the layers, and by extension, the Wardens.
