Biography

HATCHED PRIMAL
Hooo boy this kiddo was an impulse buy and a half (250g to be exact) BUT I LIKE HIM A LOT! I named him after the famous English scientist who invented the Faraday Cage. This of course is gonna be worked into his lore as some sort of Monolith. Thanks Naramyon for the dressing help!

Lightning Primal is my second favourite to Ice Primal sooo....I'm happy :D HE'S ALSO BLUE!

Additional Notes wrote:
I cannot quell the urge anymore. I must visit this strange monolith on the Scrub to find out once and for all the mystery behind its stony gaze. Eurydice has assigned me a protection unit (Larimar and Naos) despite my insistence on going alone. She means well, but as a Snapper I am hardly delicate even in my old age. I was allowed, however, to pick my expedition team. Alma and Artium are assisting me, as is Indiana (under duress may I add). I was not able to dissuade Wanderer from coming along, so I have attained the blessing of her father. What the child sees in that seedy Pearlcatcher I do not know. As unsavoury as he is, his knowledge of archeology will prove useful. They are a fine bunch aside from him however, and I look forward to cracking this case wide open alongside them. Time will only tell if this is all worth it.

Some dragons never question the motives of their ancestors. Instead, they are content to stare at the many contraptions and constructs dug up for them by Archeologists with narry a care for the ingenuity behind such intricate designs. They gawp, glassy-eyed and closed-minded, at rituals and practices they do not want to understand. Ancient Texts transcribed into Common Tongues are lost on those who do not hold such items in high regard, those who do not honour the past by choosing to remember. If it were not for the explorers, the thinkers and the artists, we would be lost in the wide spectrum of eternity. We would flounder, adrift in the great seas of the cosmos, confused as to what it truely means to be 'Draconic'. This is the way of History.

Of course, Understanding can only get one so far. Every now and then, even the most seasoned academic comes across something different. Something that, at first glance, should be easily explained by science, yet it is so alien in form and function that its very existence becomes a paradox. That is when one truely enters the realm of the Fantastic. This realm, mind you is slightly different from the concepts of Myth or Legend. Myths and Legends are passed down from generation to generation as a way to explain the events of the past in grand, epic tales of Might and Morality. When one does find artefacts depicting such tales, the history behind them is not as 'magical' as you would first believe. The Fantastic, on the other hand, relies on stories of Intrigue, mystery and horror. They are cautionary tales of Cryptids, Aliens and Monsters. Based again on questionable evidence (though more tangible than Myth or Legend), the Fantastic warns us that we are not as alone in our intelligence as we think. This is the way of Reality.

Faraday is nothing like this. Even I cannot comprehend what its purpose is. I, Ceres, the one who documents every single strange creature I come across in such meticulous detail that even a hatchling can understand. There are no references to it in any of my texts, no schematics, no cultural significance...nothing! It stands there, unmoving, taunting me from the high plains of the Highland Scrub. Its brilliant blue eyes hold the countenance of a demented Mock Firebird, hellbent on keeping its secrets from me. I call it Faraday only out of respect to our once-removed neighbour's enlightened predecessor, but how can they build something so abhorrently cryptic? It is not fair! Knowledge should be shared, not sequestered away in some meaningless object! If that is indeed what it is. Technetium cannot identify its material, which only fuels my frustration further. The only thing I have been able to decipher is that the writing on the stone tablet in front of Faraday is in Runes. It says only what I have written at the top of this entry. I cannot rightly take samples to show the Progens without first understanding what it MEANS. I fear that I may never understand, or that later in life I shall not care to.

Some stormy nights, after I have finished contenting myself with happier activities, I ascend the steps of Tourmaline's observatory. Whilst acknowledging protests from the Wildclaw and greeting the Blind One he calls his roommate (and who might I add is much more agreeable), I affix the telescope to Faraday's spot. Perhaps this is only the imaginings of an old scholar, but I swear I can see it breathing with each flash of Lightning that illuminates it from above...

``With a crack, it all happens.
Blinding daze, mix of truth,
massive mystery lay beneath
the sacred bullets eternal
youth.

Who do we lean on,
in desperate times.
Need to pick out the
myth, legends, and their roots,
followed by written rhymes.

Does the storm come,
naturally to those
born within its faithful eye.
Or do those who seek,
fall ill beneath the falsifying
tide.

Beneath the first light,
a being will cry.
ears bleed from the
pounding, lost wisdom come
be at its side.

With words of ancient calling,
forth to be known,
carved deeply into a solid rock,
claimed to be it.
Birthed the storms grace and power,
Birthed it from its home.``

Lt89K8y.jpg?1.jpg Michael Faraday FRS (/ˈfærədeɪ, -di/; 22 September 1791 – 25 August 1867) was an English scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis.

Although Faraday received little formal education, he was one of the most influential scientists in history. It was by his research on the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a direct current that Faraday established the basis for the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics.

Faraday also established that magnetism could affect rays of light and that there was an underlying relationship between the two phenomena. He similarly discovered the principles of electromagnetic induction and diamagnetism, and the laws of electrolysis. His inventions of electromagnetic rotary devices formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and it was largely due to his efforts that electricity became practical for use in technology.
As a chemist, Faraday discovered benzene, investigated the clathrate hydrate of chlorine, invented an early form of the Bunsen burner and the system of oxidation numbers, and popularised terminology such as "anode", "cathode", "electrode" and "ion". Faraday ultimately became the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution, a lifetime position.
