The dictionary definition of a familiar is "a demon supposedly attending and obeying a witch, often said to assume the form of an animal." Of course, as witchcraft has become more popular in media and its definition has grown and expanded, and so has our idea of familiars. These days, familiars can be anything from a pet, such as a cat, to a being bestowed upon the faithful by a deity. Utilizing a spirit companion as your familiar is a way to stay true to the more traditional form of the word, while still allowing yourself to branch out along your chosen path.
Our conjurer Astra conjures exclusively from a world called Ul-Zaorith. Within this world, beings form other realms contained within Ul-Zaorith that do not belong to the Earth Realm are considered familiars. This does mean that there are familiars who are more humanoid in appearance compared to the more bestial familiars we may be used to. They are typically summoned to the Earth Realm to form bonds with their Earth Realm counterpart to assist with magic and other tasks.
Suoro dragons are generally considered high spirited, coastal hunters, who feed off fish and seabirds primarily, but are also known to occasionally hunt cetaceans in a clutch of 6 or more. They make their homes in the northern shores of Suoro, laying their eggs in the crags of the high cliffs or in the floating islands in the Realm of Air. Domestic dragons like yours have been trained with a harness and saddle to accept riders. However, it is advisable to build a mental connection with them first. They are a proud species and wish to be treated as equals, rather than as pets. While they spit lightning, their scales are not conducive, relying on the searing power and fire of the lightning strike to injure their opponents. Their breath weapon is considerably more dangerous to non-dragons.
Suoro dragons are also capable casters, have intrinsic abilities with mind speech, and older dragons can open gates between the Earth Realm and Air Realm with ease. They can transport their riders into Cytheria with them, but they can also project their consciousness (when sleeping) into astral travel or dreamwalking. Your dragon may use any of these methods to commune with you.
They spend their time fairly equally between the Earth Realm and Air Realms, and this has made it difficult to fully track their natural lifespans. The current record placed a wizened Suoro Dragon at ~270 years old, but current aging methods are made by measuring the length of the tail (with approximately 1 inch of additional growth per 5 years of life). It is not known at this time what causes a Suoro Dragon’s death, but they are prone to heat-based sicknesses and a possible form of manna sickness if they do not purge pent up magics. It is therefore considered a good idea to allow the Suoro dragon to blow off magical “steam” in Cytheria at least monthly.
Suoro dragon magic can be manipulative, delving, protective, and coercive, depending on the dragon’s temperament. They frequently use their arts to evade capture or control from those not within their community. They may be inclined to use these gifts to support or protect their rider—if you ask nicely. In all things, Suoro dragons should be handled as spirited, highly intelligent, and complex beings with rich emotional and intellectual lives.
