An element is a natural ability the dragons and darkers possess. It allows them to use nature forces as they please, however it requires good training.
As it's shown further, each element belongs to a certain branch. For example, electricity is from Fire branch.
Dragons can wield only elements from the light group.
Darkers can wield elements only from the dark group.
Half-darkers can wield elements from either group.
Duo-breathers are dragons/darkers, who can wield 2 elements of the same elemental branch (for example, water and ice). The elements, however, tend to be closely related (fire and blue fire, wind and tornado, etc), see bottom of the page for all possible combinations.
Duo-breathers are uncommon. They experience a lot of troubles while learning to master their elements as it's hard to control, especially when the elements are different from each other. Often they master only 1 element and the other stays undeveloped.
The elements are inherited, as magic is carried by blood.
- Most often children inherit elements of their parents. For example, a child of fire and ice elemented dragons will have either fire or ice as their element.
- Rarely the element can be inherited from grandparents, or even grand-grand-parents.
The elements can't appear out of nowhere.
Purple dragons can master elements from different branches. Their first element though is inherited as well.
Cynder, since she was corrupted, can use 3 dark group elements besides her inherited light element of Wind.
There are 2 elemental trees (one for each group), which connect via convexity and neutral elements.
Each elemental tree has a few main branches (named as "base element"), from which the sub-elements go.
For example, air dragons can have any elements from the air branch.
Light elements are descended from Pure Light and only dragons (western and eastern) can use these elements.
- Fire - base element
- Blue Fire
- Solar flare (ancient element that only the royal family is known to possess)
- Laser (very rare; the only known users are Incendicus)
1These elements are part of both the Fire branch and the Air Branch.
2These elements are part of both the Air branch and the Water Branch.
- Water - base element
- Blood3 (very rare; the only known users are Arterious)
- Healing3 (very rare; the only known users are Curati)
3These elements are part of both the Water branch and the Earth Branch.
*This element is less attached to the water branch than it is the earth branch.
- Earth - base element
- Metal (Subclasses: Gold, Silver, Lead, etc.)
- Blood (very rare)
- Healing (very rare)
Dark elements are descended from Pure Darkness, therefore can be used only by darkers.
5These elements are part of both the Fire branch and the Air Branch.
- Dark wind - base element
- Fear (dark equivalent to sound)
6These elements are part of both the Air branch and the Water Branch.
7These elements are part of both the Water branch and the Earth Branch.
**This element is less attached to the water branch than it is the earth branch.
- Earth - base element
- Dark nature
- Blood (rare)
- Metal (Subclasses: Gold, silver, lead, etc.)
A few elements are known to be neutral, neither fully light nor dark. They are unavailable to everybody except a select few.
