Damini the dragon-genie

This is Damini. She is a dragon-genie. This means she can both grant wishes and breathe fire.
Damini is 3867 years old. She has watched civilizations rise and fall… and sometimes assisted in both. She has spent most of her life watching the strange two-legged life forms that call themselves ‘humans’ as they changed the world she lived in. At times she has been bound to aid in their destructive tendencies, as a result of the curse of the genies. Damini has spent considerable time and effort trying to free genies from this curse of having to serve the human who finds their abode (traditionally a lamp). To her, finders-keepers (or in this case finder-wishers-whose-wishes-will-come-true) seems a ridiculous way to distribute power. Especially the power of controlling a genie. Unfortunately she is yet to find a way out of this curse.

Her observation of these ‘human’ creatures and their history and technology has made her what we would consider ‘learned’. This has made her a tad… pedantic.

Damini is captured in this image pointing out (in her typical pedantic way) a flaw in the plan her current megalomaniac master wants her to aid in. Unfortunately, he is rather arrogant and does not listen to her. As a result, he will be assassinated soon. Which on the whole is not bad for the country he currently rules.
