It’s occurred to me that Helix is entering a culture where neither cannibalism nor incest are considered taboo.

Two of the biggest things from her previous existence. 

Yup.

Though at the same time it makes sense for dragons. For the cannibalism thing since dragons are pretty strict carnivores not eating your own kind is pretty wasteful, especially since there’s only so many animals that large in a dragon’s environment. For the incest thing dragons don’t stick near their families. So other than maybe their parents and clutchmates, most aren’t going to be able to recognize a relative if they run across them.

Compare that with humans who are omnivores, not carnivores, and who are more likely to get sick from a human corpse than find a meal off is and who keep large family groups.

Social omnivores, yep.

Which sorta goes back to how it bugs me whenever fantasy races have humanlike societies. It makes sense in some cares like Dwarves or Elves if we’re assuming they’re all in the genus Homo because at least then we’re working with the same basic primate instincts but something like a sentient hermit crab probably isn’t going to be forming a society that looks anything like what humans do.

Yeahhhhh, probably not.

And it just bugs me because human society isn’t the way it is because that’s what societies will always be, it’s like that because human behavior is built on primate behavior.

It’s what dragons do.

Yep. Important business.

Yeah dragons have massive stores of magic. The tarasque as a newborn will have more magic than Helix will probably have in her entire life.

No those are something different. These are most likely a type of Shattered Wyrms.

Kay.

Yup.

Spirits actually have mixed feeling about these.

Mixed? Not just run from being eaten?

They give off magical energy aligned with the type of Spirits they eat. This is the same energy spirits are born from.

So they create spirits as they eat them?

Like stars?

They don’t create spirits they just create conditions where spirits can grow. And they do it whether they’re actively feeding or not it’s a 24/7 thing.

Oh, okay.

Yeah dragons, no matter the type, are always giving off magic. It’s just the magic these guys give off is extra good at causing the formation of the spirits they eat.

Just leaving little puddles of magic all over the place.

It’s what dragons do.
