Sins of the father:
It's been a month since Duncan and the Dragon council discovered his father, Arthur Basco was assembling a secret army disenfranchised or evil magical creatures who wanted to take away the control humans had over the world, while birthing (Eww) hybrids or enslaving extra soldiers for his army. His father has gone into hiding has left Duncan's family torn, forced him into the position as guardian of mystical creatures in the area, while under the scrutiny of every member of the dragon Council. All are waiting for when, not if, he goes bad.
Hunted: As a dragon there are dozens of unscrupulous mystical villains who seek his body parts for a variety of their spells. Additonally, there are enemies of his father who want to take it out on him, and the Dragon Council is always keeping an eye on him.
Responsibility: As both the Guardian Dragon and Eldest child, he has responsibility to protect his family (Mother and younger sister who is also developing powers), go to school, while also ensuring he attends training and acts as mystical law enforcer. It's also meant the last month has gone by so fast, he hasn't had time to grieve, and the fact he keeps holding in his own pain while showing a tough face is taking it's toll on him.
Reputation: In the mystical world, there are rumors of his father using Duncan as a proxy to retain control, meaning it will take time before many trust him. It also means many mystical criminals won't take him seriously, especially since his father let many go in exchange for their services or stolen artifacts for himself. In school, there are rumors about him and his father, claims he does drugs, to being in a gang, to his father being a war criminal whose on the run from the cops (which is fairly close to the truth). Basically, he's an outcast in school, since he's always tired on arrival, and usually late.
Secret identity : His mother and sister know he is the Angel Bay Dragon, but it is a closely guarded secret from the rest of the world. If his enemies knew about it, his family would be in danger, not just from mystic
Since the dawn of history there have been records of dragons in every mythology, in a variety of forms. Most of these dragons were secluded creatures, savage lumbering beasts that stole livestock to survive. But there were some, with the capacity for wisdom, and they formed an organization to govern over the creatures that inhabited the mystical realms, from the centaurs to the Chupacabras, of all cultures, in a Dragon Council. Originally they saw themselves as rules of the creatures, but they became guardians. However, they were opposed to all human involvement in their affairs-they used mystical creatures for the ingredients of their potions, or hunted them for sport.
In the lead up to the second world war, the dragons discussed working with humans, to try and stop the war that was endangering the mystical realm as well. The problem was deciding which side to ally with-for even though the dragons true forms were not human, they retained national loyalty for the most part. The German and Japanese dragon actually worked with their respective military, tearing planes from the skies, or sharing mystical secrets, without permission of the Dragon Council. The Council finally made an agreement with the Order of Light in 1940, overseen by Eldrich, to work alongside each other, but to keep priority over their respective domains-Dragon Councils would not interfere with humans and the Order of Light would allow the Council to govern the mystical creatures of the realm. Each dragon would govern a territory equal to their ability. Some can only govern as far as a town (most young ones) or a state-only the most powerful can be guardian over an entire country.
Doug Basco was 13 when his life was changed forever. His father told him he was descended from a race of dragons that could adopt human form instinctively, and whose duties were to guard the mystical world. His father, Zeke Basco was the North American Dragon, one of the most powerful dragons in history. He was going to train him, to take after him. Doug was young, excited and eager to be a super hero.
He only had a couple of years before his life changed again. He woke up in the night to find his father in battle with 3 dragons, each of whom would have towered a sky scraper. He flew into the sky to help his father, but was tossed aside by a tail flip. The last sight he saw before he passed out was his father flying away.
When he awoke he was strung up in his human form, face to face with a dragon's nostril-big enough to eclipse his head. The dragon told him he was from the council, and his father had been seeking dark powers, gaining the power of a Shadow-bearer-not only that he had been assembling an army of disgruntled mystical creatures-many of which were his own children. Doug was going to be tried as an accomplise. His only response was,"He cheated on mom?"
The 16 year old was eventually acquitted by a court of the Dragon Council and Eldrich the Master Mage-he knew nothing of the army being assembled. However he would be watched carefully, and he needed a new mentor. They picked Trung Nhi the ex-Vietnamese Dragon, who governed the territory from 1940 to 1985-and still looks like a woman in her 40s.
Now he is forced into the roll of Angel Bay Dragon, without a chance to deal with his grief, and trained by a brutal task master. Golden Marvel discovered him, depressed and increasingly isolated, before realizing Basco had super powers. He made an agreement with the mentor that Douglas could train at the school by him, rather than at 2AM every night. Now all Douglas has to worry about is the weekend camping trips-where he is lost in the woods and has to feed himself while surviving gryphon attacks. Yay?
OOC: It's interresting that two people want to have a connection to the light and darkness powers, given Zeke Basco is essentially a shadow bearer.Traumatic flashbacks anyone?
EDIT*: changed knowledge basketball to knowledge popular culture. No longer immune to burning myself.
