The earth was lost long ago, a very long time ago in fact. Nearly 1500 years ago, humans finally killed all of the earth off. Destroyed the air we needed, left animals to die or be killed off. We were reckless, and we didn’t know what we are doing.. well most would say we don’t even today. That can be agreed upon later.

Back then, we had found a very small planet, little less than half the size of earth. This planet had life, could even sustain it. Perfection. However, there was an issue. How to get everyone and our amazing knew technology there? Well it was simple. Buy your way. 50,000 people were allowed to board the ships to head there. Out of that, only around 10,000 normal working class people made it on. This is where the issues began.

The name of the small world, was Loonrian. Pretty in nature, tropical year round as she was just a hair closer to the sun. It was a paradise. However not for long. Government was in need of creation, and it didn’t take long for a combination of ancient Greek and old monarchy to take over. There was the high upper class, the middle then of course the bottom. Now the issue came to be, the upper richer class had full control of the government, with that it caused the lower and middle to fall under their rule. Owe the upper something? Random tax? Well give us your house. It was not a fun ruling, nor is it today. But the ways still stand

k3kpx1.jpg

One thing done, was that animal DNA of Earth had been saved. Something most didn’t know about till scientists on Loonrian began to breed and remake them. It became a large special to see these living animals. But with them came also a very special.. and new machine. The Riviator. Now this machine, was able to be the reason the breeding programs of these rare animals worked. This machine could bring animals. Back to life. If a tiger cub was still born, it could be placed in the machine and someone could view every bit of info on the cub, and fix and repair what needed to be from a large touch panel. The only limit, was that you had one hour to revive the person, before it was too late. It didn’t take long for them to work the Riviator to humans, and this led to the cures for nearly every known ailment. Now they could not fix old age; however, with the machine humans were now easily and comfortably living into the 130 range.

Humans of course, had never learned from the mistake they made with mother Earth, and the fates of the humans left there. With the recreation of animals, and the ability to make them come back to life after the harshest of events, things went a little. Primitive. Horse racing came back..only the tracks where harder and horse pushed faster. Some died at the finish line. Simple, bring them back with the Riviator. Dog fighting became popular, the machine fixed them up easy. All sorts of violent animal sports began to come out because of these “Magical” machines.

But of course, man being greedy, wanted more

It was not long before the new inhabitants of Loonrian realized there was another world not too far away from themselves that also harbored life. Very soon they began to send off exploration drones, in hopes to see what this other planet in their solar system.

They soon began to find out things, categorizing the new animals they came across. Dragons! It was something of their wildest dreams, this world near by had wild dragons as its inhabitance. The desired was almost instant as scientists kept showcasing their findings, presenting the data they gathered from these drones. Soon the need began to rise. The wealthy higher class of Loonrian wanted the dragons for themselves.

So with large cargo shipped, trained military, and a well funded mission. The Humans of Loonrian made their way towards Sornieth.

k3kpx1.jpg

They came onto Sornieth with power and force. Not one of the Dragons had ever seen the human research drones, as they had been cloaked. Huge cages, stun guns, and net guns. Humans armored to defense. Dragons of all flights went to aid of one another, even the beastclans offered aid. However, with their mass numbers, and knowledge of the dragons was too much for the flights that were taken by surprise.

They went after the hatchlings first, taking them in masses by nests. Hauling them up and into the huge cargo ships that orbited over head. The Flights claim that just over a quarter of the entire hatchling population had been taken in the first " The Great Destruction". Some adults were taken, trapped inside cages that were designed to render the magic they held unusable.

"The Great Destruction" was only the first to start the horrible visits of the humans. Though they had soon began to be able fight back somewhat, Gatherings occur once every year or two. Never to return again are those taken, nor is their fate known.

k3kpx1.jpg

The dragons started as pets, lavished and well treated it was not hard to domesticate the hatchlings. People devoted their lives to become vets for the dragons. Some became trainers. Though no one dared ride a dragon. They were more of a symbol of wealth, and status on the planet. However, captured adults were a different challenge. They were violent, powerful animals. Those that bought an adult soon began to use that rage to their profit. Fights began, dragon against dragon forced by the humans. Prodded with electric shocks, beatings, and worse the dragons were forced to do their human "Masters" bidding. This caught on faster and faster, and soon it became its own industry. Fighting the dragons, and brining them back with the Riviator. Soon, they became priced fighters, and Loonrian's newest attraction.

Like the Gladiators of centuries ago, the dragons took to huge more modern arenas. These arenas were exactly like the old ones, large open floors, with the cages below. Some larger than others of course. The rich upper class began to have their dragons bred, or captured, having their own small arenas where they began to fight their dragon slaves against one another. The richest of the rich made huge arenas, capable of holding most the original population, even if it had now nearly doubled.

Using the Riviator, they were able to constantly bring the dragons back to life after these fights to the death.. or so they seemed. The rich knew they would not make as much money if the fight truly were random. Instead, they began to fix the fights. Dragons and owners alike knew the winner days before the fight. Planned to gain and earn the most money out of the now rather large middle class. To create fan favorites, build them up and tear them down. It was the perfect idea. No one would question or know other then the fighters, the owners. Then of course the vets that would work down stairs with the dragons and the Riviator. The system was made, and it was followed with no real rules or guide lines.

k3kpx1.jpg

But one arena was made, to tower over the rest. Located in the capital city of Altissimus he Cathkarta arena was created. Owned by the richest man on Loonrian, he was determined to have the arena of all arenas. To make sure he was the one people brought their dragons to fight in. An arena the people came to watch some of the best fights on the planet in.. and the arena that would hold some of the most prized, and deadly dragons to ever exist. Capable of holding nearly 200,000 people. Double the planet population he would have his wish in now time at all. Now he just needed were his dragons.

Over the course of around 10 years the owner of Cathkarta bought the top fighting dragons of his favorite breed. Imperials. They had a deadly elegance to them, and their mind power made them very deadly fighters. He bought and bred, till he had his ideal fighting stock. Sub breeds created by the humans of Loonrian had been made. He had his own. Cathkarta had exploded in those years, people flocked to fight their dragons here, and the arena stands always full for any fights. Cathkarta was, and still is a great success, in presentation and breeding of ideal Fighting Imperials.

The dragons had been bred away from their Sorneith roots. Very few on the world of Loonrian know of the old world their kind truly did come from. They know that they communicate with humans in their minds. That some dragons lived along side humans as pets and companions. Most did grow to accept their place on the world of Loonrian. They no longer know of their elemental Gods. Their eyes now days are genetically made, based off of what the breeders require for that group.

Cathkarta is known for having and breeding the best known stock of the Loonrian breeds. The facility is legendary, and to own anything born of the arena is one of the greatest goals many breeders have. They have two pure Imperials that come from Sornieth, wild at heart and true to their nature unlike their newly captive bred cousins.

There is much to be found in this Arena, to say the least.

[center][IMG]http://i68.tinypic.com/33tklg6.jpg[/IMG] This is all the information on the breeds that Cathkarta Imperials specialize in. Here is also what many would consider a registry. Dragons that can be registered with the breed, are also posted and linked to here. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/HSl71tnO.png[/img] Death Bringers are an extremely sought after breed on Loonrian. Created in Cathkarta, this deadly and sinister breed of Imperials has massed and became one of the most popular around. Death Bringers started as a very simple breed. Dark black dragons, black as the night and known for their violence and ferocity. Soon in Cathkarta, they came to do research on how environmental factors could affect the way the dragons developed. Very soon, they began to notice how on these black dragons were starting to show a third color the more they were fought in the arena. Soon, their Tertiary Genes came forth in all shades of red. Many began to say that these violent dragons were now starting to hold the blood they shed on the arena floor. This striking idea caught on fast and soon Black Imperials from across Loonrian and those captured from Sorneith became highly sought after. Battling them non stop for a few years soon produced black dragons with blood markings across their body. With much selective breeding and gene manipulation the Death Bringer was born as the first official breed of Cathkarta Arena. Death Bringers are characterized by their very striking appearance and dominate personality traits. They are violent, blood thirsty, and viewed as emotionless. Many view them as drone like, trained and bred for killing alone. They produce some of the greatest fights to watch in the arena when it comes to gore, and blood shed. Breed standards for Death Bringers are rather strict, Imperials only have been bred to show these traits. They are as such: Colors: Primary and Secondary: Black, Obsidian, and Midnight. Tertiary: Red-Rust. Genes: Only real gene requirement is for Tertiary genes. The most sought after genes are Glimmer and Smoke. But all genes are accepted [b]except[/b] Gembound. Eye color: No set standard; however, reds and blacks are more sought after. Personality/temperate: Death Bringers should be violent and ill tempered in nature, with a very natural blood lust when they are taken to the arena. Hatchlings should be fighting for dominance between siblings hours after birth. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/xYr4F5gA.png[/img] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/2AJjv3rO.png[/img] An Original is more of a general term used for a Dragon that was not born on Loonrian, but on Sornieth. These are dragons that were captured from their home planet and brought to Loonrian. The Original are more revered by the dragons that never knew the home world, as they tell tales of great elemental flights and great dragon gods. They tell how on the home world their eye color represented their element. They are respected by other dragons in the arena. In the Arenas however, they are used more as breeding stock and as show pieces. They are rarely used in battle, due to their rarity. When it comes to breeding they are used to bring out a more wild like trait in their offspring, along with allowing for a more dominate eye color if wanted. Often times an Original dragon is used to start off large fights, often presented and allowed to gallivant about the arena freely. They are normally the icon or mascot of the Arena they are used in. Here is no real breed standard, an Original can be of any breed, any color, any gene. As long as they are from Sornieth. Their demeanors are unique to each dragon, though they tend to have a more wild side in the presence of humans. Though Gen 1 and Gen 2s of any bred end to be very common in the Original Registry. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/HxMfC66k.png[/img] Mute dragons are a very particular breed of dragon. These dragons unlike many were not bread for combat or the arena. When hunters first began to bring back the dragons, the rarer genes really began to captivate the general public. Since then, they have began to breed for dragons that were ideal pets for the rich upper class. So they began to experiment with ideal genes. Determining what the upper class wanted when it came to pets. So they created Mute Dragons. Now mutes are just as their name suggests. They are completely muted, either by genetics or through the surgical removal of the vocal cords. Their personalities were docile and submissive, but also rather smart. This made them ideal pets for the home, affectionate and trainable much like dogs. Breed requirements are a little on the strict side. This is one sub breed not limited to Imperials. But it is a known fact that Imperial Mutes, along with Faes and Coatls have proven to be more sought after. Primary: The primary color of a Mute is white, no others are accepted. The primary gene can be one of the following: Poison, Iridescent, or Crystal. Secondary: Secondary color is white. No others accepted. Genes can be as follows: Toxin, Shimmer, Facet. Tertiary: Tert color can be any color. However, only Glimmer gene is accepted into registry. Big thing on a Mute is the personality. These dragons should be very willing to please and loyal to their owner, along with gentle, submissive and smart. Ideal Mutes are compared to a Labrador retriever in most cases. These are dragons that are also required to be proven as mute upon registry. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/qY5Ka67g.png[/img] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/WtblTRAb.png[/img] The Butterfly breed was one of high interest to attract people to the arena. These dragons are not use in fights, but they are like show girls and mascots of the arena. Cathkarta is the only place to breed them, most the hatchlings here do not end up in other arena but more private homes. In Cathkarta Butterflies are used to greet visitors and other people in the arena. They will fly around with fight numbers, showing what fight is next without the announcements. They are often times found out among the vendors, playing with kids that are at the arena, posing for pictures, and other more public relation type jobs. They were created to bring younger visitors to the arena, their bright colors and good personalities a very high priority. Thus why they also chose two of the more friendly and eye catching breeds. Breed Standards for Butterflies are rather high in standard. Butterflies are either Imperial or Coatl dragons. Primary colors and genes: Gene wise, there are more sought after genes. Cherub is the least wanted, though accepted then Petals is the most sought after. Then in the middle is iridescent Color wise, Green colors are only allowed, with more bright greens such as seafoam and leaf most sought after. Secondary colors and genes: Gene wise only Butterfly is allowed in registry. Color wise, purple ranges are only allowed. Primary Colors and Genes: The most strict of all Pink or a Cyan-Aqua Glimmer is only allowed in registry. Eyes: Nature, Shadow, Arcane, or Lightning eyes are allowed. Personalities: Much like Mutes, they are very dog like in personality though much more intelligent. They are very kind, and gentle, but also extremely playful and high energy. They are very good with children, and should be naturally able to get along with them well. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/zY75181n.png[/img] Much like Mute Dragons, and Butterflys; Messenger Dragons were created and bred to serve man in a much different way. Founded and expanded upon by the Owner of Cathkarta arena with his first breeding pair, Messenger Dragons quickly became popular with the upper class patrons of arenas world wide. Smart, well tempered, and loyal these dragons would serve their masters to the bitter end. These bright white dragons, with their bright contrasting colored points soon began to represent the many high ranking arena attendees. Each upper class family owned a Messenger, with the contrasting points representing who they were. The Cathkarta owner for example, has his Sky Dancer with Red points, and a Coatl with blue. The breed has two species, Sky Dancers, and Coatls. The Sky Dancers used to carry messages, paper work, and sometimes money across the planet to other arenas and upper class members. When as Coatls were used for short distance flights around town or between arena pent houses. Though loyal and smart, these dragons to tend to come off much as an emotionless drone, but really they are simply standoffish to anyone out side their family circle, and prefer to keep things in a very business like matter. These dragons are meant to act as a line of defense in case anyone were to come for the families of the elite people they represent. Strict and unique are the breed standards of a messenger dragon. Primary colors and genes: Genes that are not too flashy or over done, such as Cherub, Giraffe, Iridescent or Basic. Color must be white with no variants. Secondary colors and genes: Similar to Primary. Peregrine, Hex, Shimmer or Basic. Only White is accepted. Tertiary colors and genes: The most strict, only Okapi or Thylacine is accepted as a gene. For colors, ALL COLORS but Shadow - White. If a hatchling is born with these colors, it is not viable for registry. Character traits: Business like animals that show heightened intelligence. They should be loyal to their masters, and show a very strong devotion to their family. Aggression towards strangers is possible with this breed, though normally they handle themselves in a shy but dignified manner. When under threat, their aggression should increase to protect family. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/IHB1NMz0.png[/img] Destroyers, are well a very different breed of Dragon on Loonrian. They are worse than Death Bringers, and hard to obtain or breed. These dragons are violent, blood driven, and completely unaware of the world around them. Most Destroyers are much like Ghost dragons. They reacted to something when they were brought back to life. These dragons are nothing but rage, and will kill anything that is placed in front of them. They feel no pain, it does not stop their rampage. They are not able to be controlled, their cages are located on lifts so they can be placed onto the arena floor with no human contact. Most arena's have Destroyers to use for big fights, normally pitting their best fighter, like a Death Bringer or Ghost to see if they can beat the Destroyer. Those fights are not fixed, it is all a matter of luck and strength if the better dragon wins. Since it takes so much to bring down one of these blood thirsty dragons. Created by somehow reacting to the Riviator, they turn a blood red, with a black stomach. Once created their genes change to where they can reproduce in a normal way though hatchlings may not turn out exactly like the parent. Most loose any memory of their life before, and remain nothing more than a violent, angry, blood thirsty beast. Breed Standards: Breed: Any dragon breed is accepted. Primary color and genes: Any gene except Crystal. Blood is the only accepted color Secondary color and genes: Any gene but Facet. Blood is the only color accepted. Tert color and genes: Glimmer or stained only. Black or Obsidian are the only allowed colors. Personality: Blood thirsty and nasty, these dragons are not ones you want to be around. They are killer, and rage filled. They are never happy, never okay. They are stuck in a life of nothing but anger, hate, and hunger. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/oyh7OVck.png[/img] Rider Dragons are the newest Loonrian breed over all. There are probably only two or three breeding pairs on the planet, one of them belonging to Cathkarta. In recent years, some of the attendants of the arenas were wanting more. They needed more. Arena owners around the planet were at a loss as to how to add new elements to the fights. The owner of Cathkarta had a rather dark and sinister idea; add humans to the mix. Create dragons that can bond to a human. Make it so they could feel each other's pain, hear each other's thoughts and work together. That meant fights where they would have to work together to take on another. But what humans would volunteer for this life? None, and that is where even more debt could be paid. Families in deep debt to arena owners could offer their young children to the arena to pay their debt. It was dark and evil, but it worked. Children under the age of six were gathered and the planning began. Took a bit of experimentation but soon enough they had the dragons they needed. Rider dragons are a gentle breed, at least when it comes to humans. They are not aggressive towards them, but are not snugly either. They bond deeply to their riders, as loyal and regal beasts. They are extremely intelligent, and tend to calculate their moves in combat. They may not be the most aggressive dragons in the arena floors, but they are smartest. Working with their rider to take down an opponent. They are characterized by their loyalty and intelligence, along with their very strict color requirements. The biggest and most notable feature of these dragons is their ability to bond mind and soul to another human being. Some say they will only hatch for their human, but this is false. They hatch and bond with the first human that they touch. They have become a very big hit in the arenas, and are the start of a new dawn in the arenas. Breed standards for Rider Dragons are tight, and well controlled. Primary Colors and Genes: the only Primary gene allowed is Skink. The only color allowed is grey. Secondary Colors and Genes: Secondary genes can be either Safari or Peregrine. The only color allowed is grey. Tert Colors and Genes: Glimmer, Lace, or Ruins are allowed for Tert. Color wise, Shamrock to Cyan are allowed with the lighter mint ranges being most valuable. Eye color: No real requirement but lightning is preferred Personality: They are loyal by nature. Easy to handle and work with they are generally not a dragon to worry about when handling. They are very smart, and have a very intelligent look to their eyes. They will bond to the first human they touch, if this does not happen the hatchling is instantly culled to prevent any spread of not correct genes. Dragons that seem to be more aggressive and less compliant are normally not used for breeding, but are allowed to be used in fights for a mix up. [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG] [img]https://i.imgbox.com/MuCvPL3w.png[/img] Assassin Dragons are a rather old breed to Loonrian. They were created back when there were much more conflict between arenas and cities on the planet. Trained to follow orders, and be as invisible as possible these dragons are still used by larger arenas to take care of their dirty work, and also offer a good fight in the arena. Used to kill on command, these dragons are masters of stealth and killing. They are born knowing how to follow orders, and work in singles or pairs. They are often used for interesting arena battles. With these dragons heightened night vision compared to other dragons, the arenas are turned dark and viewers given night vision goggles to watch the fight. Often prized fighters are pinned against these living shadows on the arena floor to make for a very intense fight. Breed standards for Assassins are very high. Primary Genes and Colors: Skink only, and Abyss Only for colors. Secondary Genes and Colors: Spinner only, and Abyss only for colors. Tert Genes and Colors: Glimmer or Opal only. Abyss only. Eye color: Arcane or Shadow eyes only. Personality: Smart and tactical Asassins are bred to follow orders to the end. They will do what ever is commanded of them in any situation. They talk very little, and are more reserved that one would expect. They take pride in their work, and can be a bit stuck up at times. In general they can not work without a leader to give them orders. Hatchlings that show any rebellious traits are hard culled quickly [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/k3kpx1.jpg[/IMG][/center]

This is all the information on the breeds that Cathkarta Imperials specialize in. Here is also what many would consider a registry. Dragons that can be registered with the breed, are also posted and linked to here.

Death Bringers are an extremely sought after breed on Loonrian. Created in Cathkarta, this deadly and sinister breed of Imperials has massed and became one of the most popular around. Death Bringers started as a very simple breed. Dark black dragons, black as the night and known for their violence and ferocity. Soon in Cathkarta, they came to do research on how environmental factors could affect the way the dragons developed. Very soon, they began to notice how on these black dragons were starting to show a third color the more they were fought in the arena. Soon, their Tertiary Genes came forth in all shades of red. Many began to say that these violent dragons were now starting to hold the blood they shed on the arena floor. This striking idea caught on fast and soon Black Imperials from across Loonrian and those captured from Sorneith became highly sought after. Battling them non stop for a few years soon produced black dragons with blood markings across their body. With much selective breeding and gene manipulation the Death Bringer was born as the first official breed of Cathkarta Arena.

Death Bringers are characterized by their very striking appearance and dominate personality traits. They are violent, blood thirsty, and viewed as emotionless. Many view them as drone like, trained and bred for killing alone. They produce some of the greatest fights to watch in the arena when it comes to gore, and blood shed.

Breed standards for Death Bringers are rather strict, Imperials only have been bred to show these traits. They are as such:

Colors: Primary and Secondary: Black, Obsidian, and Midnight.

Tertiary: Red-Rust.

Genes: Only real gene requirement is for Tertiary genes. The most sought after genes are Glimmer and Smoke. But all genes are accepted except Gembound.

Eye color: No set standard; however, reds and blacks are more sought after.

Personality/temperate: Death Bringers should be violent and ill tempered in nature, with a very natural blood lust when they are taken to the arena. Hatchlings should be fighting for dominance between siblings hours after birth.

An Original is more of a general term used for a Dragon that was not born on Loonrian, but on Sornieth. These are dragons that were captured from their home planet and brought to Loonrian. The Original are more revered by the dragons that never knew the home world, as they tell tales of great elemental flights and great dragon gods. They tell how on the home world their eye color represented their element. They are respected by other dragons in the arena.

In the Arenas however, they are used more as breeding stock and as show pieces. They are rarely used in battle, due to their rarity. When it comes to breeding they are used to bring out a more wild like trait in their offspring, along with allowing for a more dominate eye color if wanted. Often times an Original dragon is used to start off large fights, often presented and allowed to gallivant about the arena freely. They are normally the icon or mascot of the Arena they are used in.

Here is no real breed standard, an Original can be of any breed, any color, any gene. As long as they are from Sornieth. Their demeanors are unique to each dragon, though they tend to have a more wild side in the presence of humans. Though Gen 1 and Gen 2s of any bred end to be very common in the Original Registry.

Mute dragons are a very particular breed of dragon. These dragons unlike many were not bread for combat or the arena. When hunters first began to bring back the dragons, the rarer genes really began to captivate the general public. Since then, they have began to breed for dragons that were ideal pets for the rich upper class. So they began to experiment with ideal genes. Determining what the upper class wanted when it came to pets.

So they created Mute Dragons. Now mutes are just as their name suggests. They are completely muted, either by genetics or through the surgical removal of the vocal cords. Their personalities were docile and submissive, but also rather smart. This made them ideal pets for the home, affectionate and trainable much like dogs.

Breed requirements are a little on the strict side.

This is one sub breed not limited to Imperials. But it is a known fact that Imperial Mutes, along with Faes and Coatls have proven to be more sought after.

Primary: The primary color of a Mute is white, no others are accepted. The primary gene can be one of the following: Poison, Iridescent, or Crystal.

Secondary: Secondary color is white. No others accepted. Genes can be as follows: Toxin, Shimmer, Facet.

Tertiary: Tert color can be any color. However, only Glimmer gene is accepted into registry.

Big thing on a Mute is the personality. These dragons should be very willing to please and loyal to their owner, along with gentle, submissive and smart. Ideal Mutes are compared to a Labrador retriever in most cases. These are dragons that are also required to be proven as mute upon registry.

The Butterfly breed was one of high interest to attract people to the arena. These dragons are not use in fights, but they are like show girls and mascots of the arena. Cathkarta is the only place to breed them, most the hatchlings here do not end up in other arena but more private homes.

In Cathkarta Butterflies are used to greet visitors and other people in the arena. They will fly around with fight numbers, showing what fight is next without the announcements. They are often times found out among the vendors, playing with kids that are at the arena, posing for pictures, and other more public relation type jobs.

They were created to bring younger visitors to the arena, their bright colors and good personalities a very high priority. Thus why they also chose two of the more friendly and eye catching breeds.

Breed Standards for Butterflies are rather high in standard.

Butterflies are either Imperial or Coatl dragons.

Primary colors and genes: Gene wise, there are more sought after genes. Cherub is the least wanted, though accepted then Petals is the most sought after. Then in the middle is iridescent Color wise, Green colors are only allowed, with more bright greens such as seafoam and leaf most sought after.

Secondary colors and genes: Gene wise only Butterfly is allowed in registry. Color wise, purple ranges are only allowed.

Primary Colors and Genes: The most strict of all Pink or a Cyan-Aqua Glimmer is only allowed in registry.

Eyes: Nature, Shadow, Arcane, or Lightning eyes are allowed.

Personalities: Much like Mutes, they are very dog like in personality though much more intelligent. They are very kind, and gentle, but also extremely playful and high energy. They are very good with children, and should be naturally able to get along with them well.

Much like Mute Dragons, and Butterflys; Messenger Dragons were created and bred to serve man in a much different way. Founded and expanded upon by the Owner of Cathkarta arena with his first breeding pair, Messenger Dragons quickly became popular with the upper class patrons of arenas world wide. Smart, well tempered, and loyal these dragons would serve their masters to the bitter end. These bright white dragons, with their bright contrasting colored points soon began to represent the many high ranking arena attendees. Each upper class family owned a Messenger, with the contrasting points representing who they were. The Cathkarta owner for example, has his Sky Dancer with Red points, and a Coatl with blue. The breed has two species, Sky Dancers, and Coatls. The Sky Dancers used to carry messages, paper work, and sometimes money across the planet to other arenas and upper class members. When as Coatls were used for short distance flights around town or between arena pent houses.

Though loyal and smart, these dragons to tend to come off much as an emotionless drone, but really they are simply standoffish to anyone out side their family circle, and prefer to keep things in a very business like matter. These dragons are meant to act as a line of defense in case anyone were to come for the families of the elite people they represent.

Strict and unique are the breed standards of a messenger dragon.

Primary colors and genes: Genes that are not too flashy or over done, such as Cherub, Giraffe, Iridescent or Basic. Color must be white with no variants.

Secondary colors and genes: Similar to Primary. Peregrine, Hex, Shimmer or Basic. Only White is accepted.

Tertiary colors and genes: The most strict, only Okapi or Thylacine is accepted as a gene. For colors, ALL COLORS but Shadow - White. If a hatchling is born with these colors, it is not viable for registry.

Character traits: Business like animals that show heightened intelligence. They should be loyal to their masters, and show a very strong devotion to their family. Aggression towards strangers is possible with this breed, though normally they handle themselves in a shy but dignified manner. When under threat, their aggression should increase to protect family.

Destroyers, are well a very different breed of Dragon on Loonrian. They are worse than Death Bringers, and hard to obtain or breed. These dragons are violent, blood driven, and completely unaware of the world around them.

Most Destroyers are much like Ghost dragons. They reacted to something when they were brought back to life. These dragons are nothing but rage, and will kill anything that is placed in front of them. They feel no pain, it does not stop their rampage. They are not able to be controlled, their cages are located on lifts so they can be placed onto the arena floor with no human contact.

Most arena's have Destroyers to use for big fights, normally pitting their best fighter, like a Death Bringer or Ghost to see if they can beat the Destroyer. Those fights are not fixed, it is all a matter of luck and strength if the better dragon wins. Since it takes so much to bring down one of these blood thirsty dragons.

Created by somehow reacting to the Riviator, they turn a blood red, with a black stomach. Once created their genes change to where they can reproduce in a normal way though hatchlings may not turn out exactly like the parent. Most loose any memory of their life before, and remain nothing more than a violent, angry, blood thirsty beast.

Breed Standards:

Breed: Any dragon breed is accepted.

Primary color and genes: Any gene except Crystal. Blood is the only accepted color

Secondary color and genes: Any gene but Facet. Blood is the only color accepted.

Tert color and genes: Glimmer or stained only. Black or Obsidian are the only allowed colors.

Personality: Blood thirsty and nasty, these dragons are not ones you want to be around. They are killer, and rage filled. They are never happy, never okay. They are stuck in a life of nothing but anger, hate, and hunger.

Rider Dragons are the newest Loonrian breed over all. There are probably only two or three breeding pairs on the planet, one of them belonging to Cathkarta. In recent years, some of the attendants of the arenas were wanting more. They needed more. Arena owners around the planet were at a loss as to how to add new elements to the fights. The owner of Cathkarta had a rather dark and sinister idea; add humans to the mix. Create dragons that can bond to a human. Make it so they could feel each other's pain, hear each other's thoughts and work together. That meant fights where they would have to work together to take on another. But what humans would volunteer for this life? None, and that is where even more debt could be paid. Families in deep debt to arena owners could offer their young children to the arena to pay their debt. It was dark and evil, but it worked. Children under the age of six were gathered and the planning began. Took a bit of experimentation but soon enough they had the dragons they needed.

Rider dragons are a gentle breed, at least when it comes to humans. They are not aggressive towards them, but are not snugly either. They bond deeply to their riders, as loyal and regal beasts. They are extremely intelligent, and tend to calculate their moves in combat. They may not be the most aggressive dragons in the arena floors, but they are smartest. Working with their rider to take down an opponent.

They are characterized by their loyalty and intelligence, along with their very strict color requirements. The biggest and most notable feature of these dragons is their ability to bond mind and soul to another human being. Some say they will only hatch for their human, but this is false. They hatch and bond with the first human that they touch. They have become a very big hit in the arenas, and are the start of a new dawn in the arenas.

Breed standards for Rider Dragons are tight, and well controlled.


Primary Colors and Genes: the only Primary gene allowed is Skink. The only color allowed is grey.

Secondary Colors and Genes: Secondary genes can be either Safari or Peregrine. The only color allowed is grey.

Tert Colors and Genes: Glimmer, Lace, or Ruins are allowed for Tert. Color wise, Shamrock to Cyan are allowed with the lighter mint ranges being most valuable.

Eye color: No real requirement but lightning is preferred

Personality: They are loyal by nature. Easy to handle and work with they are generally not a dragon to worry about when handling. They are very smart, and have a very intelligent look to their eyes. They will bond to the first human they touch, if this does not happen the hatchling is instantly culled to prevent any spread of not correct genes. Dragons that seem to be more aggressive and less compliant are normally not used for breeding, but are allowed to be used in fights for a mix up.

Assassin Dragons are a rather old breed to Loonrian. They were created back when there were much more conflict between arenas and cities on the planet. Trained to follow orders, and be as invisible as possible these dragons are still used by larger arenas to take care of their dirty work, and also offer a good fight in the arena.

Used to kill on command, these dragons are masters of stealth and killing. They are born knowing how to follow orders, and work in singles or pairs. They are often used for interesting arena battles. With these dragons heightened night vision compared to other dragons, the arenas are turned dark and viewers given night vision goggles to watch the fight. Often prized fighters are pinned against these living shadows on the arena floor to make for a very intense fight.

Breed standards for Assassins are very high.

Primary Genes and Colors: Skink only, and Abyss Only for colors.

Secondary Genes and Colors: Spinner only, and Abyss only for colors.

Tert Genes and Colors: Glimmer or Opal only. Abyss only.

Eye color: Arcane or Shadow eyes only.

Personality: Smart and tactical Asassins are bred to follow orders to the end. They will do what ever is commanded of them in any situation. They talk very little, and are more reserved that one would expect. They take pride in their work, and can be a bit stuck up at times. In general they can not work without a leader to give them orders. Hatchlings that show any rebellious traits are hard culled quickly

great story!
great story!
The lore in this is absolutely amazing! However I have a quick question. Will the dragons ever beat the humans and free those that were captured or are humans basically going to continue to capture and mess up the life on Sornieth until it reaches the same fate as their own planet?

@WolfOfShadows

For the sake of Clan Lore, probably not. Unless I end up wanting my dragons on Sornieth. Then possibly they could beat them in some way or another. But till then, not a winning chance for the dragons.
