"Those who have encounter dragons in their lifetime have told tales of hearing two beats. They did not know where the source of the sounds came from until they took down the enormous beast. What was seen from the dragon's breast was unfathomable - two beating hearts. One was a regular heart, while the other glowed with ominous energy. This glowing heart, as told by these men, felt alive; not physically, but spiritually. It was unlike any living creature they've ever encountered. Just a touch from it would make them feel a strong pressure in their heads; as if it were being crushed by a boulder. "Would've driven me insane if I kept touching it". A curious thing, these "Dragon Crests", which are officially named by the D.L.A.G.I.N. corporation. Thankfully I got my hands on a few before they decided to hoard all the ones already taken from dead dragons. They even put a ban on hunting dragons for their "Dragon Crests" afterwards, but I hear they are trying to develop a way to harvest them. These things are like compact nuclear reactors. Really great sources of power, but dangerous if not handled properly. Though we can't hunt for them, we already have dragons as partners, so that's basically like a nuclear reactor those dragon riders ride on almost everyday. The "Dragon Crest" apparently appears somewhere on a dragon's body, but it always comes out at random times. It's probably done as a way to keep itself safe. Oh! There was one rumor, or rather, an old tale about the "Dragon Crest". It's said that a pair of dragons used to proudly have their "Dragon Crest" pop out from their chests and keep it there; never changing position. These dragons stood above every other dragon; they were essentially the "Kings of Dragons", sometimes boasting to be the kings of every thing. Now, the thing is, when this pair of dragons died, their "Dragon Crests" had suddenly disappeared from their bodies. It was thought that someone or some thing came by and took the "Dragon Crests" and stashed them away, for these "Dragon Crests" were the most valuable of any "Dragon Crest". But that wasn't the case, as years later, another pair of dragons appeared, with the same crests as the ones whose "Dragon Crests" were considered missing. And this continued on for many years to come. Now the thing is, adult dragons don't pass on their "Dragon Crest" to a new generation. Their offspring develop their own "Dragon Crest" around the time when they become as big a human. What I understand after hearing about this tale is that these pair of dragons were able to "pass on" their "Dragon Crest" to their offspring, and it continues with the next generation. The only reason, I believe, to why that happens is due to the power contained within those "Dragon Crests" from the pair of dragons in the tale. That pair of dragons must've had immense power held within those "Dragon Crests", that they found away to keep it within only their bloodline. Almost every person here and the galaxy over has heard about this tale, even those damn bastards at D.L.A.G.I.N. Rumors have spread that their researchers are trying to replicate the same thing from the tale, but the experiments have been unsuccessful. It's been a good two centuries since anyone has seen any dragon whose "Dragon Crest" looks like the ones from the tale. But I know for sure, they're still out there. And I have a good feeling that we're about to enter a interesting chapter of our lives pretty soon."
