In a society as militarized as that of the Dweghom, a need arises to distinguish those who are proficient in the art of war, thus capable of calling themselves warriors, from those who are truly gifted. The Thanes are the latter. Individually recognized by their Raegh for valor and prowess on the field of battle, each Thane is armed and equipped with the best weaponry a Hold's forges can produce.
Unlike the undoubtedly fine weapon of the warriors, each of the arms and armor that the Thanes bear has been personally crafted by a member of the Tempered marking them to stand amongst the Hold's elite forces. Capable of weathering the heaviest blows and cutting through the finest chain, these weapons make the Thanes deadly opponents, equally proficient on the attack as in defense.
Clad in armor forged in a bygone age, when dragon fire was the greatest threat to a warrior, every vulnerable part of a Dragonslayer is covered in alloys not seen since the breaking of the world. The weapons they bear were those used by their Ancestors to pierce the nigh invulnerable hides of the Elder Dragons.
Forged from adamantine and now quenched in dragon blood, no mortal armor could hope to withstand a blow. Dragonslayers are entrusted with the greatest heirlooms of their Hold, weapons that are part of the living memory of their people's greatest trial and triumph. Only the greatest of Thanes could hope to aspire to the rank of Dragonslayer, and no single Dweghom, not even the eldest Mnemancers, has the standing to recommend the elevation of a Thane to their ranks. Rather, they must be chosen by the unanimous acclaim of their peers - their valor and prowess so indisputable that even the greatest of the Dweghom warriors would not contest their ascendance to this elite force.
