    "The Solars? I don't fight because the Solars were overthrown. I fight because the Sidereals and Dragon-Blooded conspired and launched a coup that overthrew me and usurped my place in the world, and then they perpetrated an eternal inquisition and purge against me and my kind.

    "The Solars were a threat to everything and had to be stopped? Yeah, that's the justification the Sidereals spew. You tell me, okay, why, if you're just trying to get rid a threat to Creation, why you would not try to get us -- the guides, judges, world-walkers, mystics and guardians of the First Age...

    And they make you look like an outcaste because they are "considered second-rate", which is a what you'd expect to be the effect of the mechanical resonance difference in social attitudes. Non-jade doesn't work as well as jade for Dragon-Blooded, and so it's something that someone desperate, like an outcaste would use. A Dynast, ahem, really should do better, ahem.

    Now, if you're a matriarch with an arsenal of artifacts that includes such, of course you aren't normally going to give stuff perceived as second-rate gear to your scions in the highest standing. But they are...

    Of course, if everybody who is the equivalent of a special forces soldier already has a suitable daiklaive that they've dedicated effort to mastering, you might well keep your daiklaive anyway, if you having one you haven't cultivated is still doing you more good than it would do them stored in their footlocker. Depends a lot on just how large the armories of the Dynasty are, and your relative level of favor with your matriarch.

    Now I'm thinking about those armories and the magical materials. Jade's most common and fully resonant for Dragon-Blooded, and so would be standard....

    Hmm? Bodyguard duty for the general isn't grunt work assigned to the privates that have pissed off their sergeants; this isn't a modern military in a state with a fully centralized military bureaucracy a phone call away.

    Bodyguard details are going to be prestige assignments (the generals will have the the independence to make them prestige assignments, and will), and they're going to be the position in the army where a young DB will be best able to have close and regular contact with a fairly senior member of the Dynasty, making a valuable connection. Even if a given young Dynast...
