Can we take a moment to appreciate rough and tough, super badass Dean and Sam, who’ve hunted hundreds of demons and monsters were always too nice to kill a deer?

LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT MY PRECIOUS SPOOPY GUARDIANS.
So this post is a good sort of tl;dr about the Bone Court and who they are.
But for a REALLY REALLY tl;dr —
Back when Ironwood was a Nature clan, these two spooky plague guardians showed up and were like “we’re gonna live in this patch of Contagion that you’ve never been able to get rid of. It’s okay, we’re polite and will follow the rules of your clan.” Then the Queen got herself some harem pets and the King ended up with some creepy yet thematically appropriate consorts (one is a Light prophet who just showed up one day and the other is his bodyguard and they make babies that the community seems to just adore) They’re basically…. morticians/gravekeepers/etc.
They are all about the balance of life and death. It’s why they don’t mind living with Nature dragons. Life needs death to keep being healthy, and survival of the strong is an aspect of life. Hekate is a true plague dragon, and she’s about power and survival, Thanatos is a super creepy bone king who is obsessed with death and funereal rights but honestly if you have to die, the Bone Court isn’t a bad place to wind up. They will take care of you in your last moments, and if you have wishes about passing on in a way that isn’t Natural Death, they’ll take care of it in a respectful manner according to your wants. They’ll also handle the body in accordance with the wishes of the deceased as well. They know how to take care of Imperials, and ever since setting up shop in Ironwood, have become the rulers of the clan graveyard. Ironwood’s Nature dragons still think it’s weird and tend to side-eye the goings-on of the court cause they would rather just plant the body with a sapling, but it’s not like the Court has HARMED them so might as well let them do their thing.
Nowadays they live in the Hewn City, which of course is creepy as fuck, and they spend even more time dealing with the bodies of imperials, but this is what they live for. They are the King and Queen of Bones and all the other members of the Court live to serve them and death.
This tag has most everything I’ve posted about them
Here is a tiny bit else.
Thanatos and Omen went for an extended stay over at Clan Ith back when I was nature so that they could have spoopy light eyes (and because they refused to hatch the combo that Ith was looking for) and while they were there…
Also the Bone Court is involved in the War of the Legacies.
I don’t have an easy link to it, but back when I managed to fully gene up Hekate and Thanatos (had to breed and gene them from scratch, they were my second project dragons), I had an RP giveaway for their first breeding. And ever since then, the Bone Court has been a really great source of spoopy RP and a way for plague, shadow, ice, and generally just sort of the types of clans that would not normally interact IC with a devout nature clan to do stuff with Ironwood.
