Pass, Dovahbro (SKYRIM) by CoffeeAddictedDragon Pass, Dovahbro (SKYRIM) by CoffeeAddictedDragon
Translation of Dovahzul: (Note that these are not literal translations. The literal translations are of the best substitutes I could find for certain words. Forgive me. ;v; )
"Hey Judagyol." "Orc bandits?" "No thank you brother." "Why not feed?" "Besides," "I see."

I MAY have gone a bit nuts with the dovahzul... lol... XD

While playing some Skyrim as Trellayn, I randomly remembered asking my little brother way back when I played Ma'liik what dragon he would want to be in Skyrim if given the choice. Evidently, he said he'd be a frost dragon, cause they're strong and look cool. I stated that I would be a Blood Dragon, even though they hare weaker and have goat eyes, I liked them for some reason.

Well one thing led to another and we tossed around what names we'd have. I think we decided on some and then it just kind of faded from our minds... Till now. I remembered that little convo and decided to act on it this time. I finalized the names with my bro and thus created these two characters based on what we'd be if we were Dov.

Now onto the character themselves.

Judagyol (mine) is the blood dragon in the pic. Usually referred to with female pronouns due to her name, which will be explained later (assuming that's allowed cause I don't think Skyrim dragons technically have real genders.) She is slightly more powerful than normal blood dragons but not by a significant amount. She makes up for this with speed, cunning, and ballistic, powerful fire thu'ums. Though one of the younger dragons in existence, she is the older of the two in the pic.

Brominah (my brother's) is the frost dragon. Younger than Judagyol but growing increasingly stronger (much to Jud's annoyance.) He seems to constantly be hungry to some degree and frankly isn't too picky when it comes to what morals he eats. He uses frost thu'ums and unrelenting force.


Judagyol = Queen Burn Fire

Brominah = North Master Hunter

Wouldn't they be dead if they were actually talking?

Good question. I think there is a difference between words and words of power for dragons. I mean, if every word a dragon said was dangerous, then we'd be dead like 20 times over when talking with Paarthurnax.

Wait a minute, I think it's only when they're actually shouting at each other

Yeah I think so. Paarthurnax does say in the game that in order to use a Shout, you have to understand and say the word. So it's not quite like speaking.

And in one of the tips on the loading screen it says a fight between dragons is essentially a deadly verbal debate

This is fabulous oh my goodness X) I've always loved the idea of the dragons conversing with each other when not being shot at or slapped with an axe by an enthusiastic Dragonborn. I love how you've drawn the dragons, and the names you've given them are pretty freaking amazing, I can totally imagine suddenly being attacked by a Judagyol and Brominah. Great work!

As much as I'd love to be some pretty amazing dragon like an elder or something, I'd probably be just your ordinary frost breathing brown dragon XD One that would just kinda stare at you for a while deciding whether to kill you or continue on the flight path.

The dragon gender thing has confused me for a long time, since they all sound (and all that have been referred to by name) are male, which got me thinking: Do female dragons exist, and just left Skyrim or were hunted to extinction, OR are the dragons often without voice female? Or even further, do all dragons have just very deep (to our standards) masculine voices? I dunno, maybe they don't even have a gender.

Ahhhh thank you so much! I'm so glad you like them! Spent a lot of time with the naming since I wanted them to sound lore friendly but also not sound like someone sneezed while pronouncing it. XD Nothing wrong with normal dragons man. Lol.

I have a going theory myself. I don't think that dragons in skyrim have PHYSICAL genders because they don't need to reproduce. They're all created by Akatosh and are, for all intents and purposes, immortal. (Unless their face gets murdered by a dragon born.) I think dragons just don't really mind or care about differentiating genders cause it's just not super important. I guess they refer to each other in male pronouns cause that's  like the first option when anyone assumes gender. Might also be because they're so big, they're voices are by nature deeper and more masculine, like you said. Who knows really? XD

Because of this all being theory, Jud kind of is genderless but goes by female pronouns mostly because their voice is not QUITE as deep and they have "queen" in the name. SO until Bethesda throws us Dovah enthusiasts a bone we can only speculate. XD

But yeah, I'm so glad you like these two. ^^

You're most welcome! Ah and it shows in the pronunciation. "sneezed while prounouncing it" XD That is the best description of Skyrim's dragon names I've ever heard. Normal dragons are pretty neat in their own right X)

I completely forgot about Akatosh XD but man that is a good theory, especially since Alduin showed abilities beyond mortal limits, such as travelling to Sovngarde for the sake of it and gaining the name of 'World Eater' as well demonstrates origins far past the abilities of the average living thing. Plus, they're the only known species born (or more created) with the power of the voice. That may very well be true with the assigned gender the named dragons have, male is like a default option XD The size=deep voice makes sense too, it's generally depicted the bigger you are, the deeper the voice. We can only guess at this point. 

Seems legit enough to me, theory accepted XD

It's my pleasure, they're brilliant. ^^

Yup! Though I wonder what would happen if every dragon was devoured by a dragonborn(s)? Would he make more? Or would they all kind of be reborn or something when the dragonborn dies?... 0.0

Glad the theory has made it past your screening. XD The bigger body deeper voice thing seems fairly likely. I mean, think of lions or elephants. Doesn't matter what gender they are they ALL sound loud and deep and "masculine."

I don't know, considering that in the legend it was that the dragons were all hunted down and Alduin was banished, then came back and started resurrecting them all so who knows what the almighty would do if all his flying lizards suddenly died. o0o

It has more logic and support than a lot of other theories XD I reckon that's the case too, large things with deeper voices just makes sense.

Lol, weird thinking about gals with deep DEEP voices. If a woman came up to me and started talking with an Odahviing voice I may make more than a double take. XD
