Dragons have long been a staple in Western folklore. With flapping wings, sharp teeth, sometimes with more than one row and often with large bellies, we have seen them depicted on screen able to balance themselves suspended in the air. They breathe fire, sometimes just to display anger. Other times as a display their main ammunition to destroy their enemies. They fly often times without passenger, sometimes untamed, but usually looked upon with awe by the humans at ground level. Their depiction takes the viewer into a new world where heights do not appear limiting. The authors’ description allows us to near these grand beasts, to feel their warmth, to slide our fingers across their scales or even to confront our fear of ever encountering one. Then we as film watchers and fiction readers recall what we have experienced thus far. Puff the Magic Dragon was friendly enough, inviting youth into his arena by the nonturbulent sea. Then we learned that some are born from eggs, perhaps magical eggs, but large enough that they require special care and attention to cultivate their majestic births. Then through time we have become reacquainted with another sort of dragon. Their wings may not be as big though their bodies are still grand. Some argue that they represent people’s personalities. Other observers claim they we the vices reflected within ourselves that we have yet to tame and master. They can submit upon the appropriate training. Some of these dragons can even become our friends. They will show as much loyalty to us as much as they detect our sincerity towards them. Then there is probably the most intimidating, surprising, and most popular iteration of dragons. The graphics are clear. Their eyes are slit with upper and lower lids. They are very protective of those who have mastered them. They are rare, just as the blood of the descendants who are destined to be their commanders. Their teeth are still harrowing. They alone, enough to devour any weak flesh that stands before them. As powerful as they are susceptible to attack and injury. And now you have yet another dragon to be acquainted with—Oein. A harmless sounding name for a dragon as powerful as he. This majestic creature does not have scales. His body is large, but one cannot even say that he has skin. Oein is a glass like dragon. No one, however, can see the internal workings of his anatomy. Sometimes he has an additional guide, but most he is directed and steered by alighted reins held by his masters, Prince Thauses and Princess Nuraī. They are on a mission to protect the Kingdom of Udharīa from its latest threat, Prince Aueneiss. While they pursue to apprehend him, two other people, by the names Euphranai and Aeteshara pose a new threat as well. The princess and the prince can only address one attack at a time.
