Dragons have a code of etiquette when communing with other dragons or humans – recipient dragon must be hailed – by name of dragon type, e.g., Eartdragor and given permission to speak by receiving dragon - humans hailed by surname usually (considered bad manners to commune without permission otherwise) Dragons can live for several centuries maximum

Dragon King – an ancient blue dragon of legend (once a human sorcerer)

Simulacrum – a look-a-like simulate of man or woman (needing human hair/bone & skin to make) can be created as an empty shell or as in Var Firedragor a taken body to contain himself in human form

Soul Foci – Plural of soul focus

Heartstone - A smooth small round and roughly heart shaped stone. Has magic properties that can enhance spellcasting abilities - absorb spells - making it possible to hold one or two spells within the stone - Once worn by the holder the magic is keyed defensively to the wearer. If the wearer removes the stone while the magic is still active may cause the magic to work against the wearer.

Shapeshifting in the world of the dragon legacy

Simply put two beings joined as one - when a dragon is merged mind and body magically with a human host into spirit form and vice-versa:-

Only dragons can shapeshift into human form – only same-sex transformations possible – to be successful both dragon and human must be willing

The process is instigated by the dragon – when shapeshifting is successful the first time - the process ages the human a few years this can vary - thereafter, over time slows the ageing of the human and grants human use of magic ability. Once shapeshifting is successfully completed for the first time only one of them can be present at the same time? There is no other side effects - carries some risk one, or both could die if not successful. This is especially so if the human is unwilling, then the human may become an empty shell for the dragon - a simulacrum

(Only Matra Fangdragor, Cara Beldragor and the Dragon King can completely transform into human form in book one)
