I will start off by saying that this thread could have just as easily fit in many other categories here at SH, but I think etymology is the most apt.
I came across this book while scrolling through the ever so interesting Biblioteca Pleyades website. For those that aren't aware of it, the sheer amount of content on there is pretty astounding and worth a deep dive.
For what its worth, I can't really find any corroborating evidence in addition to this book that talks about similar topics. I'm not saying its not out there, but in my attempts at internet sleuthing I can't seem to find much else. Take that as you will, but the information presented is certainly relevant to many things discussed here. I am merely abridging what is presented, I'll try and save my personal thoughts for the end.
From Transylvania to Turnbridge WellsTo begin, this book seems to have been written for the initiates of the Dragon Court. There isn't much out there on this group, other than a fairly outdated website. I can't say I've gotten all the way through the book but what I have read certainly makes for an entertaining read. For the purposes of this post, I am focusing on their version of the origin of the word Vampire, Dragon, and connections to Tartary/Scythia.

The history and etiquette of Vampirism in the Home Counties
Honestly, the idea that early depictions of Dragons were, in fact, representative of a powerful knowledge makes a lot of sense.The etymology of the word 'dragon' comes to us via the Latin but is derived ultimately, it is thought, from the Greek, though the origin of the word and its definition is probably much older. The word in Greek is drakon (drakon); as in edrakon (edrakon), an aorist of derkesthai (derkesthai), which means 'to see clearly'.
A dragon was one who saw clearly, and clarity of vision engendered and was always classically associated with wisdom, which itself produced power. Today we say that knowledge is power, so nothing has changed in that respect, except that it is actually wisdom - the ability to predict or intuit and synthesize knowledge - a prerequisite of druidic or fairy neuro-physiology, that actually affords the greatest power of all.
In a progression of logic that naturally suggests itself, we are therefore entering in upon the linguistic territory of the seer, the witch and the magus, with whom the foregoing qualities have always been closely identified, a state of affairs with which etymologists concur.
Not even a page in and we are already talking Scythia, everyone's favorite Tartarian region civilization.Similarly the word king is derived from the related Gothic word kuningzam, meaning both "knowing one" and "scion of the noble, (meaning wise), race". In addition we have the associated word siddhis, meaning 'the powers' and from this word or vice versa, was derived the tribal name 'the Scythians' the 'Arya-Sidhe' or 'Sidheans'. The 'siddhis' were a range of psychic or paranormal phenomena which manifested themselves as the attributes of those Tantric priests in Eurasia who had attained 'samadhi' or 'enlightenment'.
These people, coterminously the Aryans or Scythians, who are thought to have developed Tantra in Sumeria, were known as the legendary Tuadha d'Anu (tribe of Anu and by a traditional, widely known derivation - "people of the stars") or daouine sidhe (meaning people of the powers) in the Gaelic countries. They were the 'wise ones', the elves or fairies; and from this we can conclude that by correct definition, a Dragon was originally, (by blood descent from the race of the wise), an overlord, an archdruid or bruidhina, magus and a seer, an elven goddess-queen or god-king.
So based off the conclusions reached in this book, we could say that the ancient Royal Scythians are a wise, powerful bloodline that ruled this region of the world for a long time.
Other interpretations of this "Dragon" race in history:The dragon nevertheless was humanoid and so the symbolism in the dragon glyph ought rather be interpreted to substantiate the etymology of the word itself. The serpent stands for the wisdom and healing powers of the sacred king or queen whose regalia often consisted of serpent-like scale armour and whose consciousness soars above that of humanity as if carried on wings, which were symbolized by shamanic swan's feather cloaks.
- Raphael (the prince who appeared to Adam in Eden, according to Milton)
- Repha'im or Rapha'Elohim
- Annunaki (Enlil/Enki)
So if these powerful mystic life-creating entities are real, what happened to them?
Something like this could fold in nicely with some of these global cataclysms we have seen here on this forum, although I haven't gotten to a point in the book where they mention what time-frame this could have happened (if it ever does, anyway).In the theory of critical mass, sometimes called the "99th Monkey Effect" - based on Jung's theory of Collective Consciousness working through Rupert Sheldrake's 'Field of Morphic Resonance' - the collective mind of a race creates a spiritual and cultural Archetype whose field of resonance can be felt in the material world. In the case of the Elves that Archetype was manifest in the Age of Magic. Simply put, when the Elves lived they created a field of magic around them whose power arose from the very sovereignty of the earth itself. However, when the Church killed the Elves, the Earth was silenced and the magic largely died.
Other notes from the introductory chapter:
- Seems like this system has a built-in caste system, namely that humans did not have (nor want) to be leaders of their society. All of this was in the hands of the Dragons, which considering that they are all wise and all powerful doesn't seem like too bad of a setup for the plebs.
- Dragons exist in this world and extra-dimensionally, or at the very least had access to a level of interactivity with the environment to suggest extra-dimensional abilities. They are not necessarily off-world aliens.
Dragons AND Vampires?
What is this, a crossover episode?
What is this, a crossover episode?
I wasn't able to find anything to corroborate this claim, but it sure as hell is a juicy one.Some of the earliest evidence of Ritual Vampirism comes from Tartaria in Transylvania and stems to the fifth millennium BC. Remains of a human body were found buried in a fire pit along with clay tablets upon which were inscribed the names of the ’Sumerian’ god Enki and the ranking number of Father Anu. The language was subsequently termed ’proto-Sumerian’ and represented some of the earliest written artifacts yet to be found.
The descendants of these early vampires were the Sacred Ubaid Race who, one millennium later, settled Mesopotamia and founded the Anunnaki religion of the Sumerians in 3500 BC. Their Transylvanian ancestors were the Anunnaki Gods themselves.

Annunaki as Lizard people confirmed? Also note the elongated skulls and Phrygian caps...The Ubaidian culture is a prehistoric culture in Mesopotamia that dates between 4000 and 5500 BC. As with the Sumerians, the origins of the Ubaidian people is unknown. They lived in large village settlements in mud-brick houses and they had developed architecture, agriculture and farmed the land using irrigation. The domestic architecture included large T-shaped houses, open courtyards, paved streets, as well as food processing equipment. Some of these villages began to develop into towns, temples began to appear, as well as monumental buildings such as in Eridu, Ur and Uruk, the major sites of the Sumerian Civilization. According to the Sumerian texts, Ur was believed to be the first city.
There is a lot more etymological data on how they define Vampire, I highly recommend you read Chapter 1 in the book to get a better understanding. Here is the TLDR version:Various suggestions have been proposed in an attempt to explain the origin and meaning of the word vampire. One recent suggestion was that it was applied to a group of ’Watchers’ (Seers - Derkesthai: Dragons) who had occupied a settlement near "lake Van", in Urartu - Armenia. The original location - Greater Scythia - is faultless, the association is without error but the etymology is unresearched and the philology is completely absent.
Although that author’s suggested identification between Watchers and Vampires is absolutely correct, the word vampire does not in any sense relate to their former geographical location or origin but, as we shall see, rather to the vampires’ social and spiritual identity and status within a given cultural framework, which in this instance was Scythian, overlaid on Celtic.
However, like Dragon we can conclude that Vampire in this case has nothing to do with the cultural meme of modern day Vampires: leather clad, sparkly, or Victoran need not apply here. So what do we know about this version of Vampirism?In summary vampire in its earlier form - oupire - derives ultimately from the Galatian Uber, which itself is derived from the Aryan Upari and linguistically and contextually the Vampire - the witch or druid- was a Scythian High Queen or King: an Overlord.
- Originated in Transylvania by the Scythians
- Practitioners were of a distinct race - - that of The Elves
- Vampirism was the central feature of a philosophy based on endocrinology, and used the consumption of female blood and mumae to enhance awareness and lead the practitioner to union with godhead.
- The powers accompanying such an elevated state of consciousness were called the sidhe or siddhi and were, with vampirism, the foundation of the cults of Druidism, Tantric Kaula Yoga, Qabalism, Alchemy, Rosicrucianism and Witchcraft
Scythians of Transylvania/TartaryAs the book notes, when speaking of Scythians they refer only to the Royal Scythians, not ordinary citizens or client races, and certainly had nothing to do with the curvature of their swords.
That is quite the spread across the globe, etymologically speaking. This could establish precedence of a global culture at one point, but I digress.The name Sithian is related to a group of words that appear in Indo-European languages which are found as far apart as Eire and Northern India, indicating that they had a common Aryan origin in Scythia. These include - Sithia, Sidhe, Siddir and Siddhi.
Sheelagh Na Gigs:The curious Irish word - Sidhe - pronounced ’shee’, ’sheeth’ or ’sheeth-ay’, attributed to the fairies and meaning ’powers’, is therefore identical to Siddir (sheeth-eer) and Siddhi (sheeth-ee) and is derived therefore, from the people of the powers - the Scythians or Sidheans (sheethee-ans). In Scotland the royal fairies were called the Seelie or Sheelie and their princesses were related to the sculpted Sheelagh Na Gigs over church doorways, who do NOT depict ancient goddesses of fertility, but were the royal Grail Maidens of the Elven kings and queens.
Apparently the Catholic church kept these up on their buildings in order to attract Pagans to their churches, I would imagine to varying levels of success. The implication here is that if you ever see one of these strange looking figures on a church, you know it used to be Pagan.goddesses of sovereignty and transcendence, and their place over the doorways of churches, many of which were built on the sites of ancient sacred groves, indicated that in entering these buildings one was entering through the vulva of the maiden into the otherworld, the realm of Elphame and the Kingdom of Heaven
This matches the description of Tartarians, as well. There are several threads here in SH that make reference to the red hair/green eyes genetic quirk among their kind.Scythian clans remained solitary and insular nomadic pastoralists - horse lords who ranged across large tracts of Europe and Asia for centuries. Others opted late for a more settled existence and mixed settled agriculture with pastorialism, a system that can be found in both Takla Makan, where they built fine cities, and in Ireland, where they became know as the trooping fairies.
In general they were usually tall, pale skinned, with golden red hair and green eyes, unlike the Celts, who were stocky and squat, with ruddy complexions and dark hair, and practiced settled agriculture from a very early period.
On finding remnants of this culture in Tartaria:
Further east of Transylvania similar discoveries were made in the Ukraine or greater Scythia and the peoples who had settled the area were named after their dwellings, which in Russian were called Kurgans. They were mound houses exactly the same as the tepes of Tartaria and the Tells that the Ubaid built all the way down through Anatolia to Al’Ubaid and Sumeria.
To the Kurgan peoples, obviously the red-haired Aryan or proto-Aryan (if you must) horse lords, was attributed the invention of the chariot whose axle dimensions were copied on all horse drawn vehicles right up until the Victorian period, when they were incorporated into the axle width (4ft 8½ ins) of the standard gauge railways still in use today.
It seems fair to suggest, given the wealth of archaeological and anthropological evidence, that the Sumerians or Ubaid as we should call them, along with the pale-skinned and red-haired Lilith and her descendants, were the early Elven, Aryan-Scythian Dragon Overlords of what we know now as Transylvania and Greater Scythia.
In ConclusionTo be honest, I had to just stop myself at a certain point because there is a lot of interesting material in this book and I'm only a few chapters in!
As of right now, I would put this work in the same category I put Protocols of the Elders of Zion: I'm not sure if this is real, a hoax, a psyop, disinformation, or the fantastical workings of a creative writer. However, it doesn't matter what the origin is because the information inside corroborates a lot of things I have personally researched and what others on this site have discussed.
While researching this I found a blog site that has information that piggybacks off this book, with a deeper dive into Sumeria.
So....if anyone knows anything more about this Dragon Cult, or perhaps might even be a member, feel free to pop your head in and see if we can't get a better understanding of all this!
