TOPIC | Masks and Brights, Lore Subspecies!
1 2
Abstract
In my lore I've been working out two rival factions of assassins, each pretty different. Each tends to be on retainer of the rich and regal, so there's a lot of competition between them, especially because of the very different styles they each have. Outsiders only see them as rival troupes of entertainers and nothing more. Art and politics rarely untangle.
Its clowns vs mimes y'all
I figured I'd put the info about them out there somewhere in case other people wanted to use these factions in their own lore!

[size=5][b]Brights[/b][/size] [indent]As their name might imply, these are the flashier of the two groups. Dragons in the brights tend to be very colorful, in dress, genes, and personality, and have a reputation for rowdiness. The Brights scout skilled performers they come across and recruit them as apprentices. During a dragons apprenticeship they are evaluated for their potential, and from their they either graduate into the organization or are kicked out, never learning the actual motives of the Brights. Upon graduation, they receive a new name, representing their new life. This name is often silly, and a callback to Brights of the past who were especially famed amongst them. The Brights are loud, extravagant performers. Music, dancing, and comedy all kinds are in their typical repertoire. They are well known for getting a whole room riled up and singing along! Near the end of the night, when everyones in a smily warm stupor, a Bright uses their extensive training in poisoning on their mark.

Brights
As their name might imply, these are the flashier of the two groups. Dragons in the brights tend to be very colorful, in dress, genes, and personality, and have a reputation for rowdiness. The Brights scout skilled performers they come across and recruit them as apprentices. During a dragons apprenticeship they are evaluated for their potential, and from their they either graduate into the organization or are kicked out, never learning the actual motives of the Brights. Upon graduation, they receive a new name, representing their new life. This name is often silly, and a callback to Brights of the past who were especially famed amongst them.

The Brights are loud, extravagant performers. Music, dancing, and comedy all kinds are in their typical repertoire. They are well known for getting a whole room riled up and singing along! Near the end of the night, when everyones in a smily warm stupor, a Bright uses their extensive training in poisoning on their mark. When they leave, nobody is the wiser.

Coloration
Bright clashing colors. No whites, grays, blacks, or earth-tones. Think jewel-tone, or clown-tone. Try to avoid matching your primaries/secondaries/tertiaries.

Genes
Its not required that a Bright has these verbatim and other genes are cool, but these make the obnoxious contrasting colors just pop that much more.

[size=5][b]Masks[/b][/size] [indent]Masks tend to be more refined and less boisterous than Brights. While brights make everything in a room revolve around them, Masks are more fit for delicate and more formal high society events. One may paint for a group or do slight of hand. They pride themselves in thier intricate "magic" that astonishes adults and hatchlings alike. They are also very skilled in animal taming, often owning doves or dangerous creatures to add a small flourish to their performance. Masks also may be on retainer to write poetry or record memoirs for the wealthy. There are two ways to become a Mask. One, is to be born into it. Another is to be given away. When a client requires the Masks for a job they cannot afford, one option is to pay with a hatchling of theirs. That hatchling is brought into the fold and raised without their parents as a Mask. There is no choice to join and none to leave. Brights are reckless, going after their marks in plain sight. Masks wait until the end of the evening, when their target is dozing off to ensure that they don't wake up. [/indent] [size=4][b]Coloration[/b][/size] [indent]Masks prefer to be under the radar.

@Volcanows Do Brights have to be XYZ with all three colors in different parts of the spectrum? That does seem to be what the description says, but I want to be certain.
