Background
Tyraxas is the last son of Blackwell, the now-deceased leader of the Black Company, a powerful dragon betrayed and slain by the Coalition States. He has recently hatched, and with enough of an imprint from his heroic father, has sought out some of his previous associations, perhaps to follow in his footsteps.

• History: During the great Elf-Dwarf war, a singularly exceptional Elven alchemist created a number of identical enchanted knives used to add some gravity to the Elves' negotiations with the dragons of their time. From time to time across the ages, these knives have surfaced in the hordes of ancient dragons, and among ruins from that era. They are often associated with the appellation "folly" as those who bear them have frequently overestimated the power of the weapons, and underestimated the might of dragons.

The overcoat or long-coat — also known as a duster — is a favorite among cowboys, gunfighters and sheriffs because it is both stylish and offers a surprising amount of protection, as well as making an excellent raincoat (waterproof and a good article of clothing in which to hide a shotgun or rifle under). The entire coat is lined with (relatively) lightweight armor padding with plates over the shoulders and torso (often concealed under the fabric). It offers 8 small but usable internal pockets (four on each side).

Not urgent, but I'd like you to tweak your boost/lower Trait trappings before we begin play. I like what you're going for quite a bit, but I want to talk through your process a little - you can get a lot for that +1 PP, but it needs to have a good role playing justification (I ran into this with my psi-slinger and Rob/RFT walked me through it.) I'm not sold on the trappings that give you a flat +1 to Toughness, but I don't think you're far off on any of these.

If it's at all useful (and feel free to ignore if it's not), what Rob and I came up with for Hardin is here: http://savagerifts.com/sr/viewtopic.php ... 621#p16621

I pretty much ripped off most of Libertas' trapping list from the 13th SET. I didn't find a ton of use for +2 to some skills I don't have (taunt, persuasion, etc.) at the cost of +1 PPE, so I tried to use one of the derived traits like Jazz uses pace. (Parry, toughness, charisma, etc.) I thought about the spirit one being +2 to resist fear, strength being +2 to fighting or to melee damage, but those seemed really overpowered.
Now, looking at Hardin's list gives me some more to work with. How about this: The raise still gives +1 die type to the linked attribute. The success effects change as follows:

Agility +1 Parry; if that is excessive, I can go with -1 to any penalties for linked skills, or if you object to stone-cold ripping of Hardin's effect (which I understand), +2 pace is just fine and has utility, if it can be applied to flight speed too.

Strength Focused Strength: wins any tied opposed strength rolls (might be a little OP if used, but is also very unlikely to find use to begin with) could also go with a one-step bump in max load/encumbrance limits in kind of a temporary Brawny, but that could also get excessive with dragon-strength as the foundation. Another option is +1 or +2 AP to melee strikes from force of impact, maybe? I actually like this option better as it's more likely to have some every day utility.

Vigor if +1 toughness is no good, maybe I'll opt for ignoring 2 points AP with a stiffening of the muscles and compaction of scales to be less prone to piercing? +1 or +2 to resist environmental effects? I don't know how much use that'll be to a dragon.

Smarts +1 to resist smarts tricks, taunt, etc. As an alternative, +1 for Knowledge skills (arcana, battle, history, etc.); Since most of them are untrained, that effectively eliminates half of the unskilled penalty with the exception of Kn: Arcana; could also tone it down and just make it -1 to unskilled penalties for smarts-related or pure Knowledge skills.

Spirit +1 to resist attempts to dominate: fear, intimidation, puppet, mind reading, etc. If that's too broad, fear and intimidation is fine.

The only two I'm not sold on are +1 to Parry for Agility and +1 AP to damage rolls for Strength (though I could live with that). All the rest look really good. My favorite is actually the one you worried might be OP: that he would win ties on opposed strength checks. That seems awesome and very draconic.

For Spirit, I'd limit it to anything that uses Spirit or a Spirit linked skill to resist.

Left Agility as Pace bonus. Changed Strength to win opposed Str checks, Vigor negates 2 points AP, Smarts and Spirit are +1 to resist Smarts and Spirit based tricks/tests/maneuvers/spells, respectively. Should be good to go, I think.

Looks good to me. To be clear, the Pace bonus for Jazz will apply to your flight speed, too. He's a dragon, and flying is as easy as breathing. I'm good with the magical speed boost applying to either.
