In Britain[ edit ] The treatment of dragons on the British Isles seems to be indicative of the treatment they have received in the rest of Europe and the Middle East , although this may not be the case. They are treated no better than beasts of burden. Compared with China, the living conditions are generally appalling. Draconic domestication in Britain began with the arrival of the Romans , continued in a disorderly manner with the influx of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings , and continued to the present of the series. In Britain , it was held that dragons could very easily turn feral and therefore useless to humans. To prevent this, properly trained aviator candidates needed to be present at the hatching of every egg. A newly hatched dragon would speak to the nearest person suitable for bonding. The human would then give it a name in Britain, the names are typically chosen by schoolboys fond of grandiose Greek and Latin names. Newborn dragons would be very hungry, but it was said they would fly away immediately after feeding unless they willingly accepted a harness. If the aviator could not convince the dragon to accept the harness, it would never be "useful" to people, except possibly as broodstock. The ceremony of bestowing a name and harnessing a dragon seems to be more of a superstitious ritual than rooted in necessity. Some dragons have been known to name themselves and still accept harness, while "feral" dragons can be induced to help humans. The elaborate naming ritual probably stems from an innate European fear of dragons. In Britain, dragons are housed in "coverts", secluded spots away from most human habitation. The general populace is terrified of dragons, whether they are feral, friendly, or part of a foreign military.

At the end of the fifth book, Victory of Eagles , Laurence and his dragon Temeraire went into exile to Australia after being convicted of treason, and it was very sad.

Aft Temeraire is back! After all, surely nothing interesting would happen in Australia, right? Nothing worth devoting a book to, at least, right? And surely Naomi Novik agreed, which is why she skipped immediately from the fifth book to Crucible of Gold , the Odd move there, Ms.

Novik, but I suppose using that unusual numbering convention implies that Laurence and Temeraire's time in Australia makes up a "lost book" in the series, amiright? Clever of you, doing that. While some dragons, like humans, may live in relative poverty, the majority enjoy a higher degree of autonomy and self-determination than those in Europe.

Chinese aviators are traditionally female, in the tradition of a famous heroine possibly Mulan who once dressed as a man to join the corps. In France[ edit ] While not as fully covered as Chinese and British society in draconic relations, from observations made by Laurence and Temeraire, the dragons of France were originally treated similarly to the way they are treated in Britain.

In the fourth book, it is mentioned that French society, especially in terms of the military, is beginning to treat dragons along the pattern of Chinese society, with many Parisian streets being widened for dragon use under Napoleon's orders. By the eighth book, Blood of Tyrants, the standards of the French in regards to dragon husbandry are becoming closer to that of Chinese society, bearing almost no resemblance to the fear and anxiety that the inhabitants of Britain exhibit throughout.

This transformation of French attitudes stems from Napoleon's acceptance of a high-ranking Chinese dragon who carries a personal grudge against Laurence and Temeraire.

In Africa[ edit ] Until the fourth novel, it was presented that dragons living in Africa were believed to be primarily feral at least by European standards.

Many European courier dragons disappeared just from trying to find shelter on African shores. In Empire of Ivory , it is revealed that some sub-Saharan tribes such as the Sotho and Tswana practice a form of ancestor-worship wherein notable ancestors may be "reincarnated" in draconic form.

The practice in Africa consists of ritual and song praising the ancestor's deeds and life. Performing these rituals around an incubating egg imprints these traits on the dragon, identifying the dragon's personality with that of the ancestor.

The Tswana Empire is led by one such dragon-king. Dragons also protect and work with the tribe members their "children" , performing military actions and tasks that would often be associated with technology in other cultures, such as deep mining.

In South America[ edit ] Societal relations with dragons in South America are based around a modified ayllu wherein the chief and "owner" of the community is a dragon. Crucible of Gold reveals that the Incan society of South America used to be more equal between dragons and men.

It was a great honor for men to persuade a dragon to join one's ayllu. Few dragons were chiefs then. The status, social standing of the unit was all decided by the dragon's health, size and strength, but the diseases brought from Europeans devastated the human population while leaving the dragons untouched.

The plagues reversed man's dominance. As a result, there are more dragons than men in the Incan empire, and dragons occupy most positions of political significance, though there are still human representatives and it is not entirely Dragon-ruled.

Dragons serve as chiefs of their ayllu, managing and taking care of their people. The dragons are extremely possessive of their people, but the shortage of humans has resulted in a practice where dragons of small ayllus steal people from larger ones.

It is not possible for a man for travel alone and unaccompanied along the roads without being abducted by a dragon eager to adopt them into their social unit. A dragon's status in Incan society is determined by not only how many people they manage, but how well they care for them as well. Humans who feel they are not well looked after may complain to the provincial governor of Humans to transfer them to another ayllu.

If the only governors were Dragons, they would not seriously take onboard any grievance from humans wanting to be reunited with the original ayllu they were stolen from.

Governors are also tasked with managing patrols to prevent thievery of men while ending disputes between dragons over ownership of people. Any dragon caught stealing would be forced to return the person to their original owner and compensate the aggrieved party, usually by giving one from their own ayllu too. If they refused they would have to accept a challenge, a fight with a heavyweight dragon, acting as a representative of the state.

The Incan dragons have also developed a welfare system of sorts as well. If any dragon were to lose their entire ayllu to disease or other, the wealthiest in society would be forced by law to give up a few humans to help the destitute beast rebuild their family group.

In other parts of the world[ edit ] So far, only a few clues have been released about this topic. These tidbits are included below. North America: Little is revealed about North American dragons. The natives of the North American Great Plains have dragons that are always accompanied by a single rider rather than a whole crew as in Europe. In Australia, the characters receive intelligence that there are more dragons in the United States than can be crewed, and that any man may apply to partner one.
