Origin[edit | edit source]

In Chinese mythology, dragons are legendary creatures usually depicted as snakes with legs. They are benevolent beings that can bestow fortune and grant strength to those they deem worthy, such as the Emperor. This is in stark contrast to the European version, which is usually depicted as evil, greedy fire-breathers. Chinese dragons are also associated with water, as it was believed they had control over many forms of water and weather. Many pictures of oriental dragons show a flaming pearl under their chin or held in their claws. The pearl is associated with spiritual energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, immortality, thunder, or the moon.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Placing it in water makes the water self-autonomous, typically taking the form of a Chinese dragon. The dragon is territorial and can manipulate water that the pearl is in. It will help those it deems of high valor by altering its shape and acting as a compliant disciple, making events more favorable. However, they will become highly agitated by the presence of those with ill intent and will strike at them if their benefactor is attacked. Only by removing the pearl from the water can the effects be nulled.
