Tiger Swallowtail Xenohydra Queen Rutulus
Queen Rutulus, born at one of Cy Dragonstake’s infamous Bipedra clutches, came into the world a Queen and wasted no time building her hive.
She is a domineering creature, demanding unquestioning loyalty and rewarding such with her favour. She is feared and loved in her hive as a bringer of boons — or a bringer of death.
Rather than breeding a horde as other xenodragons might, she has committed mostly to collecting xenodragons from around the Nexus. She regularly sends out her drones, or goes out herself, to clutches around the Nexus to lay her claims.
Her most loyal and precious drone, Veness, is always by her side.
Nonbreeding Queens. They are permitted to exist in the Hive because they have accepted that they won’t be allowed to bear clutches themselves.
The Queen’s honour guard. A born rank, though on occasion normal Warriors can be elevated to Praetorian as an honor rank.
The bulk of the Hive. Drones do the work of creating and maintaining the hive, making certain everyone is fed and cared for, and making sure the Queens and (to a lesser degree) the warrriors are comfortable.
