Emperor Malas'Eitz is a highborn Coastal Dragon that lives secluded in Hana Blossom Gardens, high in the mountains above Angelsea with his mate Elora (Aqua'Delton) and their children Griffin (Altair'Quetz) and Eridani. Previously he resided in the Attic of the Manor, which is nearby the town below and was the doctor for its residents.
He is usually well-tempered, polite and a good being to talk to. Underneath this exterior lies a more sinister creature: Wrath. Malas is mostly capable of controlling Wrath, past stage three is a different story.
His foster children are:
Found in an abandoned nest, Eizen took these eggs back to the Manor and looked after them until they hatched.
He comes from the era of REM, or the Reign of Emperor Malas'Eitz. Malas and his old friend, a cyborg-infused dragon known as Sath'Valkas, worked together to lead the Drake Race to technological advancements far beyond human understanding. They could create life just by thinking about it, thanks to the discovery and development of magicks.
The Eradication of Dragons Era
His friend Sath'Valkas had planned to create advanced AI systems that could help guide the human race to the peak of it's understanding of the world around them, but the humans he was tutoring at the time killed him in a freak accident that led to the creation of the Gate of Truth, a system that allowed humans to use alchemy and alkahestry, but since they did not know how to truly use the powers they had been given, they abused it and began the mass genocide of the dragons, blinded by greed and envy for wanting what they couldn't have. Malas was the only dragon to survive this, only sustaining mere wounds as he had used magicks to disguise himself as a human.
After this mass genocide, his homeland in ruins and the technology they worked so hard to create gone, Malas was completely alone. A single human woman by the nickname of Phoenix found the wounded dragon and nursed him back to health. Sadly however, Phoenix was slaughtered by her own people, and as she lay bleeding out in his arms, she asked to be reborn. Knowing this was the only chance he had left to reverse what his friend's students had done, Malas granted her wish, taking her soul after she had died and placing it into a nurturing egg; a manufactured egg that was used to allow the rebirth of souls without conducting human transmutation. This egg was kept safe in his home whilst he travelled the world in the guise of the human - Eizen.
Eizen has now since lost his hatred for humans, finding that the ones he live with now are much kinder than the ones that slaughtered his race, and no longer has any need to guise himself as a human.
He gained a blood-relation, Griffin (aka Altair'Quetz), who is apprenticed under him as a medical student.
His broken form (Eizen and Wrath) was recently returned to it's original self by a tourmaline coloured water dragon named Elora, that he has claimed as his mate. They have recently discovered that they are expecting their first child. He was he one to confirm it for her.
Malas was the founding father of Magicks and Artes. He, along with Sath'Valkas, taught their race how to channel the Mana -the life force of the earth- and use it for healing; whilst Sath'Valkas developed methods of channeling this energy and founded the principles in this world for Alchemy, Alkahestry and astonishing technology that far outpaced the human race's technological advancements.
Because of this, Malas developed the skill to create life from the ether without the need for human transmutations. However, due to this later becoming taboo among alchemists and that his skill drained him of energy, he rarely uses this skill unless it is absolutely required.
He can also make soul links, meaning that he can project his voice and paint images inside of people's heads for them to be able to see if they lose their sight or are far away from where he is.
Due to the nature of building a lost soul a new body, Malas has to keep the soul in the same area he is in when creating the new body, otherwise it will not accept the soul and will just remain an empty shell and a waste of resources. He can keep the soul bound to a living host temporarily through temporary soul-binding, but the host has bear a family tie to the soul, be a partner, or be Malas himself since he is creating the body. This is Co-habitation. Co-habitation can last for up to ten hours before the temporary link will falter and the host will begin rejecting the soul.
Rejection of a co-habiting soul will begin with signs of coughing fits and lead to possible blood loss, paralysis or even death. Thankfully for Malas, he can create a new body within ten hours without too much strain to his energy resources. However, since this is a dangerous game he is playing, if the situation becomes desperate, he will occasionally speed up the process at the cost of being rendered immobile for a few days.
For Co-habitation to successfully work, the host cannot be a temporary shell, nor can it be a random host. The family tie or partner link are the only hosts outside of Malas that will be successful and reduce the risk of rejection issues depending on how strong the link is between the soul and the host.
Malas is the only pure-blood dragon alive. There are demons, deities, and shapeshifters with dragon forms, however they do not share the same blood that Malas' race had. Any other dragons alive in the Atticult are not related to Malas' line and are most likely shapeshifters, demons or deities. (REVISION: Half-blood dragons are most likely related to him if he bit the human/being before they became half-blood. However, very specific conditions have to be met before they can become a half-blood, otherwise they will not survive being bitten.)
Explanation of the Soul Egg:
A Soul Egg is created when a person dies and they don't want to come back to life straight away, but don't want to move on either. This egg is then treated like a new life waiting to hatch, but the soul in the egg keeps it's memories and personality. The idea is it is for a slower rebirth so the person has time to reflect if they so choose, or so they come back into a different place in the timeline like what happened with my character Phoenix.
