The Scar syllabary was created by Jon Molnar for use in a novel he's writing. In the novel the syllabary is used by a draconic race called simply "the dragonkin" by outsiders to their culture, their writing system being called [xɛkɑʃi roʊdɛsɑzi] (The Scars of Rhodesar". Rhodesar, in Shessin (dragonkin) lore, was a great red dragon of insurmountable intellect who created the Shessin and gave them the gift of written language, shaping the glyphs with his claws in a great stone cairn. This cairn bears the sample text below.
Printed texts in the Scar Syllabary are kept in left-to-right books or on scrolls and are typically printed with a press or written with a brush in a red ink made from pomegranates.
Initial vowels were originally nonexistant, but over time certain words that used to begin with "h-" have dropped that initial consonant to leave just a vowel. Different regions of the Shessin empire deal with this in different ways, but the standard and most accepted method is by assigning the quaternary L group to the initial vowels.
