Dragons were origionally a beastial race and were the only species to not become organic Kin after the Etherial Shift(much like the angels). The first Dragonkin were synthetically made by Lucifer.
Before the Dragon Hunts many of the elders used stories featuring dragons as gods. Volin the dragon god of Thunder is one that the dragonkin Sylis Viceta bases his strongest attacks on.
The Grandmother of Dragons was the first dragon to be born after the Ethereal shift that was heavily affected by it. She lived longer than the normal dragon life span of 500 years.
