TLoS: UAA 23: A Turbulent Reunion, Part 2.House Ixeniejir: This draconic clan had resided in Gwynedd, Wales for as long as anyone could remember. As it happens, Ddraigtanto was the first to actually leave the British Isles at all, and was also the first to have any success in gaining a throne of any stature. Nonetheless, the House of Ixeniejir was a proud family which held the title of Duke of Gwynedd.
Unfortunately, the title now no longer held any political power in Avalar, Britain or even within Wales itself. It still held a lot of respect and privilege, but its best days were behind it.
...This could be seen in the residence of the House, as it too bore many similarities to its residents; this so much appeared to be the case when Ddraigtanto and company saw it for the first time.
The Ixeniejirs lived in a castle, atop a steep hill; at the base of this hill was a deep moat. On the outer side of the moat there were the remains of a tall wall, made of stone, a similar wall was on the inside bank of the moat; c

It was a golden rule when she was a young boy; never go into Schakri's bit of the cave. This was a message Ddraig was quite fortunate to understand the first time, and as such never learnt the hard way what happened if she disobeyed. That did however mean Ddraig had never been up there, and as such, had no idea what Schakri kept up there...

The black dragoness felt quite a nervous chill go up her spine; even now, she had the feeling she shouldn't be there, and would probably get into a lot of trouble if anyone found out what she was doing, regardless of being the queen of a small empire, or anything else for that matter.

Needless to say, the other guardians were certainly pleased that Ddraigtanto was now no longer moping around, and seemed to have a new spring in her step. While they were bewildered at how Ddraig was now referring to herself as a she, after being so depressed over the whole situation no longer than the previous night, it was good to see that she was taking positive steps to handle the curse she was dealt.
What's more, Ddraig was quite determined to follow up on the argument of the previous night. They knew about House Ixeniejir, and she was convinced of this. Still, they were keen to avoid the subject. Despite her resolve, breakfast proved to be a very useful way of ensuring this procrastination for just a little longer...
Guardians tended to eat separately from the students, but usually one or two guardians would be with the students to oversee everything. Funnily enough, today, those two guardians were Eve and Nexus, while the elder guardians were jo
