||Of the fighting classes, Dragoons are amongst the rare. Not
many are chosen and fewer still manage to perfect this odd form of magic use. There are
many legends about how a dragoon manages to get to such incredible hieghts in thier leaps.
Some say that a black chocobo catches them in the air and carries them higher, others
credit invisible dragons. What's the truth? Only the dragoons know and they aren't
Almost without fault, dragoons work under a ruler of some kind, as the leader
of a unit of lesser trained warriors. They are often deeply skilled in the arts of
leadership and grand warfare, though some are made out to be ninja's of sorts, especially
if the target is known to be out of the reach of normal foot travel. In large scale
combat, they act as generals and often take personal confrontations with the more
dangerous of enemies. Thier ability to avoid harm until striking serving them well against
some of the more lethal monstrosities out there.
|Many species have found it harder then others to
become a dragoon. Humans and Avians seem to take to it the easiest, while those of heavy
set frame find it very difficult to ever become one, even with the proper training. There
has to date never been one dragoon bear, Oberon of the Rebel City, Drominham.
There are not many schools around that teach the
art of being a dragoon. And what few there are, are not very public about thier
whereabouts, they tend to find out thier students rather then the other way around. Nobles
seem to be picked more often then commoners.
