Praaj joined the Lodge to learn more and to try and get an up close look at dragons to try and unravel the mysteries of the universe. He was a university professor of Astronomy till a student from the archaeology department brought him a book they discovered on one of their digs. It seemed to have diagrams referencing the stars and celestial bodies, something Praaj was an expert in. Unlike anything he had ever seen before they hinted hidden knowledge lost to mortals. Praaj studied the book and discovered that it was the collected knowledge of a long dead group of arcane mages. His journey has brought him to the story of the first dragon in Okinja and how it fell from the stars.
