I wonder how long the history of misandry is in the Realm. I think there were some implications in previous editions (when they bothered to mention it) that it was a tool of the Empress or somehow paired with her rise. I could certainly see that time span indoctrinating mortals, but isn't 768 years a bit short for such a bias to be really baked into people with an average 250-300 year lifespan?
It's worth noting that just because a Dragon-Blood can live 250-300 years before dying of old age, doesn't mean that most Dragon-Blooded actually die of old age.
