Sorcerers create magic the
way a poet creates poems, with
inborn talent honed by
practice. They have no books, no
mentors, no theories—just raw
power that they direct at will.
Some sorcerers claim that the blood
of dragons courses through their veins.
That claim may even be true in some
cases—it is common knowledge that certain
powerful dragons can take humanoid form and
even have humanoid lovers, and it’s difficult
to prove that a given sorcerer does not have
a dragon ancestor. It’s true that sorcerers
often have striking good looks, usually
with a touch of the exotic that hints
at an unusual heritage. Others
hold that the claim is either an
unsubstantiated boast on the
part of certain sorcerers or
envious gossip on the
part of those who lack
the sorcerer’s gift.
