The Dragon Collector begins in the Zandorian year of 4199, a Battle for the Throne year. The hero, Javan, was born in the year 4184, then immediately transported to earth where he spent the first fifteen years of his life.
Because he grew up as an orphan on earth away from his family, dragons and all things having to do with Zandador, he had no idea he could trace his Collector Bloodline heritage all the way back to his namesake Javan, the very first King of Zandador.
That’s not all he discovered when he arrived in Zandador, however. He also learned that people can live anywhere from 700-1000 years. That meant many of his family members were still alive, so he made a list going back seven generations on his father’s side to help him get a clear idea of not only his heritage but also how the people he encountered were related to him. Here is that list.
