Dragonborn

Known as consummate merchants, and vicious warriors when angered the dragonborn hail from the Easter continent but made their empire on the Despoina Archipelago, an island group halfway between the two continents. This has made the dragonborn an uncommon site on both continents.

On the Western continent many dragonborn have settled on the coastal cities where they have formed several merchant houses. These houses are the primary traders of goods between the continents; only merchant house sponsored ships are allowed to make port in Despoina. The only other means to travel between the two continents is the northern passage controlled by the Black Web Empire, needless to say the dragonborn is the alternative for most people. A large minority of Dragonborn become pirates, either officially through the Despoina government, or unofficially.

Several dragonborn take up adventuring, mostly to escape a life of being a “boring” merchant. They retain their status in a merchant house and usually give tithe to their house, and “donating” any unused magical items. These dragonborn usually are thought of as arrogant, as they very likely had an upbringing of wealth and privilege. These adventurers believe that honor, and their treatment of the enemy on the battlefield is more important than actually winning the battle. Even those dragonborn that are in more unsavory professions, such as piracy, are known as trustworthy and honorable. Eventually most dragonborn adventurers return to the merchant house that they came from and become merchants, ship captains, or mercenary commanders
