Characteristics:
The Jarrith are unique in that they did not mutate from an existing species, but rather spawned from the remnants of Jarr’s shattered body like the Jarri originally did millennia ago. Though they are fundamentally related to Jarr and the Elemental Dragons, the Jarrith, as originally seen from the Gemstone Dragons, are not inherently evil. Many believe this is the case because their creation was spawned from a mixture of the goddess Flow’s energy and Lady Chiffon’s flow from the Stone of Merlin, and not a corruption from the Great Shadow.

Though they do have some features befitting of a dragon, it would be completely incorrect to classify them as one. Although they’re fairly tall compared to most other races, they are ants in comparison to the massive size of the Jarri. The bodies of the Jarrith are covered in tough, armor-like scales. It doesn’t make them invulnerable to harm, but it protects them equally as well as an Arkhan’s skin does. The Jarrith’s head is their most distinguishing feature that resembles a dragon, and although they stand perfectly upright, they have long tails that drag along the ground. Their tails hold almost no purpose when simply walking, but in a running stance, it provides a perfect counterbalance to their completely horizontal upper body. The color of their skin and scales correspond to the element they can breathe: red for fire, violet for wind, gold for lightning, green for earth, blue for water, cream for light, and black for dark.

Jarrith live for a reasonably long time, but unlike Fibblans, they mature almost as quickly as Humans and Equirions do. By the age of 25, Jarrith reach full adulthood, but females do not start their menstrual cycle until 32 years old. Jarrith do not give live birth, instead laying a single egg once a year which takes an entire five years to hatch. Because of this, Jarrith births are very infrequent, and require an immense amount of care and attention. The eggs of a Jarrith are extremely tough, which lessens the burden of hatching it, so baby Jarrith grow a sharp claw on their right foot to crack out of egg when they’re ready to be born. This sharp claw breaks off in the first couple years of life.

Although Jarrith are perfectly capable of understanding Main, they vocally cannot speak, only being able to release grunts, growls, and roars. However, they seem to have a strange telepathic ability to speak to others which acts like a loudspeaker. They can control the volume of their thoughts, but they cannot direct their thoughts at specific people. A loud enough thought can be heard in people’s minds from hundreds of feet away. Jarrith sometimes do this in conjunction with roaring with their voice to intimidate their enemies.

The majority of Jarrith live in Oriens and Occasus. They are somewhat discriminated against in Atlum and Mugio because their origin reminds people about their fear of the Jarri. Despite this, the ever welcoming Fibblans provide them refuge, while the Arkhans respect the strength the Jarrith command. Jarrith love butting heads with Arkhans in return, not out of disrespect, but out of friendly competition. Over the years, they grew a strong mutual rivalry. Although they live mostly in Oriens and Occasus, Jarrith prefer to wear very elegant, fanciful clothes akin to Equirion fashion. It seems that they take pleasure in the contrast between the clothing and their bestial appearance.
