How to Survive Under Dracon Rule
Know your place.
Under dracon rule, society is highly hierarchical. Even within dracon society, the peers of each realm or their offspring, there is a huge power difference between the dracon Rexes and the lower relations of any dracon family unit. If you are a vampire, or other species created by dragon blood infection, the dracons might respect you if you’re powerful, but let’s be honest, they won’t respect you that much. If you’re human… I’m sorry.
Avoid dragons at all cost!
Dracons may rule us, but dragons rule the dracons. If you see, sense, or have heard about a dragon’s presence do not stay to gawk at their beauty! Dragons live with impunity, think of human women as breeders, and think of human men as even less (sometimes, humans are a tasty snack to them, not even kidding). The good news is, dragons can only stand our temperatures on the surface for up to a day, if they’re really powerful, then perhaps a couple days.
Do not join any human rights groups.
This really should be a no brainer, but many humans do it regardless. Humans do not have the numbers or power to take on the dracons. And, the dracons rule the infected creatures of this world; if they weren’t in charge do you know what would happen? Two words: feeding frenzy. Yet, every year, more and more human rights groups challenge the dracon’s world-wide domination.
Don’t party with vampires.
Again, a no brainer, yet millions of humans do it every year. Vampires, by far the most numerous of the infected, are some of the only creatures whose infection is passable. Yet, due to their controlling most of the party-scene worldwide, humans flock to them in droves. Do not be this dumb! Humans don’t survive long in the vampire world, if you’re lucky, they’ll change you, but most humans are not that lucky.
If you are human, hide your magic.
Until recently, human magic was considered impossible. Yet, due to recent events, human magic has become known to some of the highest levels of dracon and dragon society. If you were unlucky enough to be one of these humans born with magical ability, hide it at all cost. You are now either a threat or prime breeding material, and being either could get you killed.
Move to the Mabiian islands, you’ll live longer.
Obviously you’ve heard of the Mabiian Islands, one of the world’s top vacation destinations. If you can afford it, consider moving there. Along with the eternal summer, beautiful beaches and celebrity sightings, the Mabiian islands have some of the strictest legislature protecting humans. Yes, the dracon patriarch is a crime boss, but legend has it that he once fell in love with a human, and now is even open to sharing power with human groups.
Never fall in love with someone above your station.
…unless you like flirting with death.
