- I wanted to work out in advance what Talon will say/think to/about Langdregosa to avoid taking the spotlight away from the others so they can have their moments too:
- First of all he's been raised by humans all his life, he's the only dragon born in the town. More than likely
- I have worked out the noble in town bought his egg before birth and raised him with the intention of being his protector.
- So Lang is the first real dragon born he's seen, and not read about or heard of second hand.
- He's left Greenest, and his house to their homeless. He has no intention of returning, as he has been
- humiliated twice now for the sake of the people, whom have only risen up under him each time now.
- He thinks he died. He's admitted to incinerating the noble which raised him to be this sort of pet
- under his control, whom he endured beatings from that clearly he was strong enough to fight back against. He was taught and trained basically to be the servant of a cruel man where he in turn learned to be cruel. His conditioning saw the
- revolution as a means to assert his strength.
- I really think that one of the things that hurt him the most of being raised by the surrogate father figure is
- that while he did have some affection for the father figure it wasn't seen as that sort of relationship
- from the patron, so it went unrequited and forward into other men. I feel like he endured it due to his
- desired relationship to the father figure, deserving it in some way he couldn't understand.
- He had feelings for Varis at one time, but backed off knowing he had to make a decision of priorities.
- He needed the militia more than he needed to pursue the bard.
- The moment he met Lang he felt stronger than he has in the past several decades. In just a single
- day of knowing him he's reached a pinnacle of power and skill that's taken him beyond being a normal fighter
- into a battle master. He's willing to prove it. He's probably older than Lang, and being around
- humans he hasn't had a chance to really hone his abilities.
- He thinks of Lang as precious, amidst the people he's met in his life and compares him to a sapphire.
- Referring to him as "My Sapphire", if given the chance.
- It's a reverse of the common male power fantasy. Talon is extremely vulnerable, instead of the being victorious
- and forcing Lang to change Talon is taking a chance by telling him that Lang is right. Lang doesn't need
- redemption, it was Talon that needed to change and is doing so thanks to his influence.
- So it's more of a going to Lang and bearing his soul to him to be judged by one of his own
- people. Since Talon has the ideal of "Might" If I become strong I can take what I want, what I deserve;
- he wants Lang. It's a matter of did he do that by overcoming death, even in failure he's grown
- stronger. This is part of the validation he needs to be strong since it's mostly coming from others through
- his role as a protector.
- I'm sure that will cause a conflict especially if Varis is put into a bind between Lang and him, he'll be forced
- to choose Varis having a more complete history with his friend over this shinning ideal of what a knight is
- based on the stories and dreams he's had since he was a child.
