You are a Dragon-Blood, one of the Terrestrial Exalted, who steward Creation in the name of the Five Elemental Dragons, greatest of the gods. As a member of a Great House of the Scarlet Dynasty, a descendant of the Empress (may she live forever) you and your sworn brothers are the sword and shield of the Realm against its enemies, both from without and from within.
Characters will be generated according to the standard Dragon-Blooded character generation rules as detailed in Exalted: The Dragon-Blooded. I am open to discussion of weird stuff and non-standard plot hooks and Shining-equivalents but make no gaurantees. I would encourage my players to build with an eye towards versatility and towards being prepared to function both on and off the Blessed Isle and the Realm. I will provide NPC members of your sworn brotherhood after seeing your character concepts and deciding who you are most unlikely to end up wanting to knife.
