Q'barra, Part 1
Superstitions about the scales are as wild as they are unfounded. In some of the tales, the scales hunger for human flesh. In others they consume dragonshards to survive, and this is why they attack Tharashk miners. It’s common knowledge that the scales sacrifice their prisoners; the only question is whether their altars are dedicated to dragons or to demons. Everyone knows that the scales are savages, and that those with metal tools have traded for them or more likely stolen them from humans.
In the wake of the Mourning, the scales are growing restless. Every miner knows a story of a caravan raided or a village razed. Children frighten one another with tales of the obsidian palace in the deep jungle and the army massing there.
