Dragon medicine is so powerful that in ancient China, only the Emperor himself was said to embody it fully. This is not true, of course, but in a sense it is true that you cannot be a carrier of this potent medicine and not sooner or later find yourself in a leadership position.
“But it is one thing to read about dragons and another to meet them.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin
As someone who has been awakened by the very intense gaze of a dragon in the middle of the night, I can only concur with Ms Le Guin. Dragons are real and if you are at least bit magickal, you have a good chance of meeting one.
