Background: Voracious returned to his estate, pleased with the experience but eager to continue his research in alchemical studies. Two generations of humans have served to facilitate the growth and prosperity of his estate- and his frequent delegation of quests to find and acquire more rare texts relating to his work have yielded access to great resources that have lead to his considerable progress.
For the last century, time has passed unnoticed to him. He pours over ancient texts and continues the pursuit of his own scientific theories for days without rest. As such he has discovered a chemical process by which to turn any metal into solid gold. However, the primary liquid substance needed for the mixture happens to be concentrated blood- human blood.
One would think these humans should be happy to have their pitiful lives used for scientific progress, but it seems as if the creatures have no sense of the greater purpose. Small groups have begun to make themselves a nuisance on his estate, stopping the smooth progress of the system by burning fields and gathering others to their cause. Voracious has heard they are heading towards his villa.
In addition to the annoyance he rightfully feels at the clamor of these humans, Voracious is further irritated by Celadon’s absence. In the age of dragons, Voracious’ claim to superiority should be without question. Voracious continues to pay the tithe owed to the Imperial Celadon, but what good has it ever done him? Obviously, this human warmage he gave authority to during his hibernation is unfit to manage such a prize. After a quick quashing of the protestors on his estate, Voracious decides it is time to pay this human a visit.
