The ruling family of Parthenope in The Crystal Crux series is the House of Fabbro. The family crest is a snarling, purple dragon named Sarcinus.
There are three elements to the crest to ponder.
First – it is purple. Purple was the color of the Roman Emperors and associated with royalty in Medieval Europe. It is a demanding color and expects to lead, wants to wear the crown and thinks it is the head. It often represents pride.
Second – the dragon. Commonly, dragons are symbolic of incredible strength and unyielding power, absolute. Those who swear fealty to dragons are considered lucky and blessed by this association. They are intelligent, self-determined and unbending. OPHIS DRACONEM
Third – a gold tongue. He is a seducer and exploiter of others. He uses prestige and wealth rather than intellect and rational thought to tempt and ensnare, goad, challenge, lead and mislead. Nothing is as it seems. It offers nothing more than a shine and promises of things it doesn’t intend to fulfill.
Keep those attributes in mind when reading about the exploits of the Fabbro family.
