**Contest Winners!** Meet Mt. Drago’s New Dragon Riders!
Posted by solitaireparke
Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend! I apologize for going on hiatus for the last two weeks…I won’t trouble you with specifics, but let’s just say that I was caught up in some family drama. But I am back and raring to go!!
- THE EMERALD DRAGON CHARACTER CONTEST WINNERS!
Due to technical difficulties, there was an unfortunate delay in announcing the winners on the blog, but I would like to extend a big CONGRATULATIONS TO…
Jacob Overton & Joe Russomanno
Here is Jacob’s character and dragon:
Character: Helup Ironfold; long ashen grey hair, grey eyes, big broad shoulders, strong arms, an all around big guy
Origin: He hails from Ptolomea where, as a slave, Helup was forced to work as a blacksmith by Erebus until he was called by his dragon and he escaped
Dragon’s Name: Jilocasin Sybaris Cirfis
Nickname: Cirf (Surf)
Age: 9 years old
Here is Joe’s character and dragon:
Character: Sergei Rasputin Cosmonov; Sergei is the son which resulted from the unions of the first woman turned demon Lilith and her mate Samael. A repented demon spawn who has been alive to witness the rise and fall of every human civilization. He stands over 6 feet tall with a sinewy rangy build black hair, hazel green eyes and in his true form skin red as blood. He prefers to handle things diplomatically but is no stranger to violence. He is known to wear a wide-brimmed hat and trench-coat made from a leather-like material. Think of a demonic looking Liam Neeson.
Origin: Raised by scouts in a town called Civibellum along the river Styx.
Dragon’s Name: Volansa Spirandi Bellator
