1: I'm off now,
3: I'm taking the dragoneer test...
4: And I promise I'll pass it this time!
1: Dash fell off again?!
2: He never learns... why can't he realize that he and dragons just don't mix?
3: (Oh, he's up there...
4: Whenever he tries to ride on a dragon, it goes crazy and tries to shake him off, even if it's a peaceful one!
5: They hold the dragoneer test three times a year, and it's even hard for adults to pass... I'll give him kudos for having the guts to try it over and over again, but he's gotta realize sooner or later that he's just not cut out for it...
7: Dash is going to become a dragoneer someday! I know he is!
8: Because he promised that he'd take me for a ride on one when he did!
9: Uh... yeah, sure. Absolutely... uhh, that stick is kinda scary, can you put it away?
10: Did you hear Lavender?! You can't give up just yet, Dash!
1: That was your eighth time...
3: Heh! Yeah, I guess if I had been lucky enough to pass on my first time like you,
4: things wouldn't have ended up like this!
6: don't underestimate us dragoneers.
7: While those who become dragoneers receive permission to ride on dragons outside of the village, they are also given the duty of protecting everyone.
8: Some get attacked and killed by dragons from other kingdoms... while others get eaten by the dragons they thought they had tamed.
9: We're not playing around here.
10: Neither am I! I'm serious about this!!
11: In that case...
1: As a dragoneer teacher and judge, let me say this.
2: It might be better for you if you just give u...
3: I'm not going to give up!!
4: I'm used to people
5: telling me that!
6: But no matter what anyone says, I've already made up my mind! I'm going to become a dragoneer!
7: No matter how many times I fall off!
8: Dash... why are you so insistent?
9: /Dash is a descendant of the Dracomages?!
1: The Dracomages? You mean those aggressive people who were capable of controlling dragons like their own bodies and using them as weapons?!
2: Their history is drenched in blood... countless villages and entire kingdoms have been burned to the ground by their hands...
3: Does the elder know about this?! Dash's grandfather brought him here after escaping from a nearby kingdom... this means that his grandfather must have been a Dracomage!
4: But Dash doesn't know himself...
5: Still, elder, we can't just...
6: Listen to me! This must be kept a secret, at all costs!
7: Just keep treating Dash like you always have...
10: /is a Dracomage?!
1: Isn't it obvious? Because I love our village!
2: It just feels different from other villages...
3: Everyone's so warm and fun here... I want to protect everyone, just like my grandpa did!
4: And because if I ride on a dragon...
5: then I'll be able to look down on this beautiful village from high above the ravine...
6: /He's always so straightforward...
7: Next time...
8: you'd better pass!
1: /This is gonna take a while...
