Background: [Plays a sugar daddy to nobles for centuries, plays pirate for an era more, takes a nap and enjoys the 70s. Life is a party.]
Cicada was raised in the secluded islands of Southern Europe, surrounded by the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. He was known as Tzitzíki (Cicada) due to his excellent ability to mimic the insect’s sounds as a young dragon. His favorite past time was brawling with the other dragons of the island, as he was always full of energy and quite the adrenaline junkie. Eventually, he grew bored of the secluded lifestyle of the protected islands and flew north, entertaining himself with Europe’s Middle Ages.
Taking the name Chester from an old Roman settlement in Britain, he used his human form as a disguise and began to mingle with other humans from the area. It didn’t take long for him to learn of their obsession with gold, something as a gold element dragon he was able to create easily. Using this to his advantage, he made a new game for himself, seeing just how far up the ranks of nobility his gold could take him.
When a wave of dragon hunting swept through Western Europe, Cicada moved east, courting and playing the nobles, princes and emperors of Asia, always mysteriously disappearing before anybody caught on to his peculiarities. He eventually circled back to Europe, finding the drama of the politics there to be quite entertaining... at least for a while.
The Age of Sail and Exploration couldn’t have come at a better time. Cicada was growing tired of tempting nobles with gold, and found a new, more exciting and greedy demographic to offer his skills to: pirates. He signed on to a ship and quickly learned the ropes, and became the “lucky charm” to any crew that hunted for treasures. Within a decade he became captain of his own ships, continuously "finding" them more riches than they could ever dream of. All was going well until a fatal battle with the Spanish armada sunk his ship, and killed his crew and confiscated his gold. Unable to survive without transforming, Cicada used his dragon form to wreck the enemy vessel before escaping to an island, hoping nobody would come to track him down the golden dragon of the sea.
Thankfully, no such hunt came. Cicada went into hibernation peacefully, awakening in the 1970s and integrating back into society. The modern era was wild, fast-paced and fun, but eventually some old floating islands caught his attention. Time to go see what that's all about; onto the next adventure!
