Heirs of Prophecy
Dragonmarks and the Heirs of Siberys
By James Wyatt
The magic of a Siberys dragonmark is powerful and fundamentally unpredictable. The mark is larger and more elaborate than the normal mark in its family, but it’s rare for a normal mark to develop into a Siberys mark—more often, Siberys marks appear on older members of the house who were previously unmarked. Even more so than the common dragonmarks, a Siberys mark is viewed as the touch of the Prophecy—a character’s inextricable link to the destiny of the world.
For those of us who bear the more common dragonmarks, the mark is our destiny, not just our duty. It is how we fit into the symphony of the world, the part we play. I carry the Mark of Warding. It is not a decoration—it’s who I am. I am a warder, a Ghorad’din. It is written in my very being.
