The dragonlord Dromoka is, in equal measure, a merciful and imperious leader. An ancient and powerful dragon, she has earned every inch of the territory she commands. Dromoka is closely involved in the affairs of her clan. She frequently roams their territory, communicating with her draconic and human underlings. If she finds the state of an aerie to be satisfactory, she flies on. Should she find weakness, however, she does not stand for it. If possible, she will attempt to rectify the situation; if not, she will summarily devour the weak link. Either way, when she departs, the clan will be better equipped for survival.

Greed and territoriality. Even at birth, dragons know their place in the world and that's to get as much as they can and carve out a territory to defend against others who want everything they've gotten.
A Dragon must wait 1-2 rounds (GM rolls 1-10 [2 rounds], 11-20 [1 round]) before using their breath weapon or Acid Bite again.
Dragons are considered THE monsters of the world.
To the Dromoka Clan.

I'm not going to post all the Dragonlords and Khans anytime soon, but I figure I should at least get started while I am starting to fill in the setting. I'm kicking them off with the leaders of the Dromoka clan, Dromoka herself and then Anafenza the Foremost. As a build, she's amongst the top tier of my dragon builds, including the ancients of all the dragon types and the other dragonlords. I am considering taking all the dragonlords up to PL15, but I'd like to at least do a test with some of the other dragons before I do so. I think this scary enough.
Dromoka and her brood emerged from Ugin's dragon tempests covered with tough scales that protect them from most clan weapons and magic. They were drawn to Jatar's hot and sunlit deserts.
After Ugin was saved by Sarkhan Vol, the brood thrived. The brood were often at odds with Abzan over their "necromantic" ways, seeing their summoning of the spirits of the ancestors as an affront to nature and life, and thus massacred them until they came to an accord thanks to Sarkhan and Ugin's influence. Under the Elder Dragonlord Dromoka the Abzan name was discontinued, and the group became known as the Dromoka Houses. The Dromoka are a true community, dragons and desert survivors bound together by their common allegiance to their devoted dragonlord and khan. Dromoka and Anafenza have the best dragonlord/khan relationship amongst all the clans of Jatar. The dragon scalelords foster trust among their subjects, while the other clans must spend their time quelling rebellion. Dragons sit on the top of extended families that are organized meritocratically, offering everyone a place. The dragons even offer distinguished humanoids their scales as protection.
Dromoka herself travels between the various aeries, inspecting them for weakness. If possible, she will attempt to rectify the situation; if not, she will summarily devour the weak link.
