One of the most important traits of the Mokole as a race, Mnesis is the Memory - the racial memory that stretches back to the birth of the Dragon Breed. This Background determines how far back a Mokole may remember on a Mnesis quest.
- A century or so.
- A millennium or so.
- The Impergium and the beginning of human civilization.
- Up until the Last Times.
- The time of the Dinosaur Kings.
Mnesis can actually vary from stream to stream; the differences are listed in their respective writeups. When remembering, a Mokole can remember only what an ancestor of his might have seen or done, and gather a vague impression of what that ancestor might have felt about the events witnessed.
