Drakhen Scale Colors

Drakhen breathweapons are dictated by their scale color. Though drakhen are born without scale coloration as they grow they shed their skin replacing it with a new skin of colored scales. Dragons do so through dsleep, while Tortles and Dragonians molt. A dragon's scale color is permanently determined the first time they dsleep and may only be changed through reincarnation. Dragonians and Tortles may change their scale color each time they molt. Molt and dsleep are both expensive, decreasing the users experience rate permanently which leads many to either never dsleep/molt or to do so only once.

Scale color is determined by a drakhen's alignment when they shed their skin.
