Böke vann Draakchen
|Böke vann Draakchen|
The “Böke vann Draakchen” is a scripture written by the Anglians, describing the horns of a Feathered Dragons, the one part of a dragon that could be used to easily differentiate between two dragons of the species. This was completed around 21 BC, only a year before the dragon’s extinction. No one is completely sure when this was written, though scholars assume it to be around 30 BC. It was kept private by the Kade family for nearly two centuries until outside scholars were allowed to examine it. Since then, it has become a fairly popular beginner book among Dregodarians, or those interested in Dragons.

Rhaakrh’s horns appear to be swirled upwards, with half of his left horn missing from the spot on its head. They are cracked, but that is the only (though quite apparent) damage to the horns. The forehead horn also swirls upwards in much the same way as the rear horns, though slightly smaller and just as sharp as the rear horns. They are rather dirty, best described as a shade of color between ivory and brown.
Rammr has horns that curved inwards like a sheep’s horns, completing a full loop before pointing straight outwards again. They are in surprisingly good condition and are colored similarly to that of clean teeth - an ivory white. There are no breaks or cracks as far as can be observed, but no-one has managed to get a good look, as the dragon is rather flighty. From what can be noted, the front horn is sharp and quite long, pointing straight out from the forehead at a 30 degree angle.
Ryuuterr’s horns are like that of a Stand Antler, much more similar to antlers than to horns. Several parts are cracked and broken, but aside from this the left horn is in excellent condition. There is only the stump remaining of his right horn, which was knocked off in a fight amongst dragons. The horn on the forehead is small and blunt, and barely cracked. The horns are coloured an off-whitish colour.
Reejr’s horns are similar to that of a Elladorian Mountain Trodder in shape. The rear horns are very blunt, aside from the small bits that have broken off and left jagged edges. They are cracked and a dull colour, as well as being absolutely huge in comparison to the horn sizes of the other dragon, with each one around two to three times bigger than the forehead horn in estimation. The horn on the forehead is very small when looked at beside the rear horns, though much sharper.
Rwerhrak has horns that are smaller on the back of its head than on its forehead, and also more blunt than others of the species. They are curved similar to the shape of a crescent moon, and angled backwards towards the bottom of the head. They’re quite clean and have less cracks than other dragons do. The horn on it’s forehead is sharp and angled forwards at a 45 degree angle. It is far dirtier and has numerous cracks, alongsidea few small breaks in the sides.
Riikkr’s horns are rather intricate, one horn that separates into two to curl around itself and end up with two points. The right horns left point is broken off and the horns are cracked, with a few breaks up the sides of the horn. The horn on the nose is a similar, yet smaller, version of this angled forwards instead of backwards, and with fewer breaks but with more cracks. The horns are rather dirty and have turned a pale brown.
Roorhr have twisting horns which branch out at sporadic intervals, making an intricate and beautiful pattern that mirrors exactly on the other side of the dragon's head. A dark beige colour, bordering on brown, these horns display few cracks and no breaks. The front horn, on the forehead, almost zigzags out, starting straight at about 5 degrees, coming back and then continuing forwards at the same angle.
- The original copy is more or less destroyed, and only a few pages remain. However, scholars managed to get to it before it was too late, and salvaged the book as well as fully translate it into modern common.
- Scholars released the book copied in its original texts and language, but no one could understand what it said due to it being written in a dead language. So they re-released it as this version written in Common. The other copy was only copied 5 times before they changed it, and is a collector's limited edition and sought after by many dragon experts.
