Life and SocietyEdit
Erainn is ruled by the Dragon King Geofrey I Cohen, a direct descendent of Cohen of Perelan, the legendary founder of Erainn. He is a kind and benevolent ruler who is loved by his people. Geofrey is married to the half-elf Liane.
Geofrey holds the Dragon Crown, an ancient relic which is rumoured to give the wearer the ability to command dragons.
Nearly eighty percent of the population lives outside the cities, most as land-owning farmers.
Erainn is defended by the Knights of the Dragon, a monastic order of warrior-monks dedicated to the legend of Cohen and the defence of Erainn. They are led by a Grand Master. The current Grand Master is Edward Cohen, younger brother of the king.
