Lamella

An observant guardian that upholds the peace between dragons and humans.

Little is known about Lamella, other than that she seems to interfere with other dragons only when absolutely necessary. You might think it's to ensure that dragons are not discovered, but it's more of an overseer or guidance role. The average person rambling about being visited by a dragon is likely to get confused stares, while dragons can easily take care of the inconveniences of modern technology, like mobile phone recordings, with their magical abilities. While Lamella has a mature and disciplined look to her, she can be surprisingly witty, and is quite the conversationalist. As an Earth dragon, Lamella has a green thumb for flowers and plants in particular.


Coming from the “character ideas can come from anywhere” camp, Lamella's original design was from playing around with a City of Heroes character creator. I liked the idea of a toxic-themed character combined with a dragon-like appearance, and looked up any plant-like terms that might match. I settled on something related to mushrooms, since they represented a never-ending cycle of life. (“Lamella” just sounded like a pretty name, and it stuck.)
