the Vanguard

vanguard
van-gahrd

- noun

the foremost division or the front part of an army; advance guard.
the forefront in any movement, field, activity, or the like.
the leaders of any intellectual or political movement.


As warriors and guards, it is natural for the gaolers to think about themselves in military terms. As forward-thinking members of a traditionalist species, the Vanguard dragons consider themselves as very much at the forefront of a movement.

As leaders of the Tribe, Biche and Belle seek to make help other dragons and clans in the same situation, so that no gaoler will be left with nowhere to go on discovering there is no real place for them amongst the traditional gaoler orders nor amongst modern dragonkind.

Members of the Tribe frequently travel to other gaolers' lairs, in part to nest and to learn, but also to make contact with gaolers who are disillusioned and seek a niche where they belong; their extensive records enable them to help dragons from all corners of Sornieth.

Vanguard-sympathetic Clans and Individuals

Some modern dragons want to help gaolers who are seeking a new way to live. Although most gaolers look upon members of the Vanguard with only pity and a total lack of understanding, those who help them are often met with anger or even violence, as traditional gaolers look upon this as interference and as corruption of their species.

Nevertheless, some brave dragons offer assistance such as food, a temporary home, an adjoining lair, or safe passage through their territory to gaolers of the Vanguard or those who seek out Vanguard clans. Foremost amongst those clans is the Mystic clan, who helped Biche and Belle on their arrival in the Fortress of Ends.

Vanguard Sympathiser Criteria

Any dragon clan or faction within a clan which does not include non-Vanguard gaolers may register to offer succour to gaolers within the Vanguard or those seeking it out, either secretly, or openly, if the clan considers it is capable of defending itself, although the latter is more dangerous.

(Factions or clans which include non-Vanguard gaolers cannot reasonably offer assistance for the safety of the clan or faction.)

However, individuals from any clan may choose to clandestinely help such dragons, whether or not the clan as a whole is sympathetic to the cause.
