The Skas'kar

The Skas'kar are one of the oldest civilized races - indeed, one of the oldest civilizations - on the world of Telania. A reptilian race possessed of cold-blooded patience, their empire stretches from one side of the super-continent of Kavnos to the other along its southern coast, the borders not stretching far from the equator. They are a Matriarchal society, and deeply religious, and they claim that each of Telania's nine moons are the seat of their Draconic Gods, dominated by the largest moon, seat of Krus, the Cold-Father.

They are a caste-oriented society, with the color and size of a hatchling's egg determining its allotment in life - though if affinity is shown for something outside a hatchling's predetermined career, exceptions can sometimes be made.

Sometimes, however, an egg might be laid that is somewhat larger than the others, covered in scales the color of one of the nine moons - the signs of an Is'kari birth. The Is'kar are considered to be blessed individuals, Skas'kar chosen by the Gods to help lead and guide the Skas'kari people. They are, on average, some two to three feet taller than their Skas'kari brethren, with longer tails and more prominent frills - and, most notably, powerful Draconic wings sprouting from their backs. They are almost always at least moderately gifted users of magic, and, unlike any other member of their race (including the Matriarch) they are allowed to choose their path in life - some becoming High Priests or Priestesses (in the rare occasions of a female Iskari) of the Gods that marked them, some choosing the path of war and becoming skilled generals and warlords, and still others choosing less glorious paths - artists, architects, teachers. Inevitably, however, the Iskar will almost always excel at their chosen profession.

Religion

The Skas'kar are a heavily spiritual society, with nine powerful Draconic Gods focusing on the 'Nine Fundamental Forces' as the reptilian race calls them. Those forces and their corresponding Gods are:

Birth and Death (Cold/Ice) = Krus
Life, Nature = Kesh
Oceans, Water, Tides = Vesh
The Winds, Weather, the Sky = Svek
Fire, Change, Destruction, Life = Savees
Light, Protection = Ieth
Darkness, Pain = Roasth
Rock, Mountains, Endurance = Kav
Magic, Mystery, Trickery = Kivas'teth

<WIP>
