Um herói Draconato representado no Mural de Alduin
"Você é um Draconato. As regras não se aplicam a você. Você pode Gritar como um dragão... sem treinamento algum, apenas com o seu instinto inato."Ulfric Capa da Tempestade

Um Dragonborn (traduzido como Meio-Dragão em Legends e Draconato pelos fãs), ou Dovahkiin, é um mortal abençoado com o Sangue Dracônico por Akatosh, o Pai dos Dragões e chefe dos Divinos. Aqueles com a bênção têm uma aptidão extraordinária no uso de thu'um, sendo capazes de absorver conhecimento sobre gritos diretamente das almas de dragões mortos . Esta habilidade provoca medo e ódio nos dragões, já que a remoção de suas almas dá fim a sua imortalidade e deixa-os vulneráveis a qualquer necromancia. O primeiro Meio-Dragão conhecido foi Miraak, um Sacerdote Dracônico da Era Merética que usou o thu'um numa revolta fracassada contra seus mestres . Contudo, o título em si é mais comumente associado aos "Imperadores Meio-Dragões" de Tamriel, que estavam numa aliança divina com Akatosh, sustentando as barreiras entre o Mundus e o Oblivion.

Dragonborn Emperors

"So long as the Blood of the Dragon runs strong in her rulers, the glory of the Empire shall extend in unbroken years." — from the liturgy of the Re-Kindling of the Dragonfires

Any subject of the Empire prior to the Fourth Era would say they were ruled by the "Dragonborn Emperors", but very few understood what that title meant. Its usage stretches back to Saint Alessia, who founded the Cyrodilic Empire in a First Era covenant with Akatosh. The Dragon God imbued Alessia's line with blood from his own heart, initiating a sacred compact which kept the Dragonfires lit and Oblivion's influence barred from Mundus, so long as those of the Dragon Blood wear the Amulet of Kings. Ever since, the legitimate rulers of the Empire have been called Dragonborn: Alessia's successors, Reman Cyrodiil and his heirs, and finally the Septim Dynasty. Indeed, the title is particularly associated with Tiber Septim himself, perhaps because he made notable use of the thu'um in his early conquests. Only these true rulers, approved by Akatosh, could wear the Amulet of Kings and light the Dragonfires. In addition, they enjoy the protection and service of the Blades, descended from the Akaviri Dragonguard, who follow the Dragonborn as "the ultimate dragonslayer." The line of Dragonborn rulers was abruptly severed through assassination at the end of the Third Era, leading to the Oblivion Crisis as the Dragonfires went out. Eventually, the last of the Septim bloodline sacrificed himself and the Amulet to permanently restore the liminal barrier. The Mede Dynasty that subsequently seized control of the Empire lacks the Dragonborn trait, and with the advent of the prophesied Last Dragonborn, it is unlikely there will be any further Dragonborn Emperors.

Dragonborn Heroes

Dragonborn, Dragonborn, by his honor is sworn,
To keep evil forever at bay!
And the fiercest foes rout when they hear triumph's shout,
Dragonborn, for your blessing we pray!Songs of Skyrim

The Dragonborn play a prominent role in the legends of the Nords of Skyrim, who tell tales of heroes who would "kill dragons and steal their power". It's not known how many Dragonborn have arisen over the course of history. The Greybeards of High Hrothgar warned that many of them met their downfall because the ease with which they learned the thu'um made them arrogant. The Greybeards attempt to inculcate the values of the Way of the Voice, and strongly disapprove of the violent use of thu'um in general, but tolerate it amongst those who have been blessed by the gods. With the return of the dragons in 4E 201 came the emergence of the first Dragonborn hero since Tiber Septim to be summoned by the Greybeards for training. In the fulfillment of an ancient Akaviri prophecy, this Last Dragonborn learned to master the thu'um and defeated Alduin.

Notes

  • St. Alessia was commonly regarded as the first Dragonborn recorded in history until Miraak, the true "First Dragonborn", made himself known in the Fourth Era.
  • The Nerevarine was referred to as "Dragon-born" in The Lost Prophecy. If this is meant as a literal interpretation or, as Gilvas Barelo asserts, that it indicated the Nerevarine would be born under the banner of the Empire, is unknown.
