Usually, they were dragons in past lives, like myself (again), and they retain memories of said life. Plus, their souls are that of a dragon. But they are many more ways this could be so.
Naturally, we have met with a crapload of skepticism, and even open hostility. But this is to be expected, as it is somewhat "out there"
But I don't see other people as "lowly humans who need to be wiped out." Hell, I got a great family, friends and life. Sure, there's a few people I know who need their throats slit, but doesn't everybody know a few of those paticluar shitbags?
Anyway, all dragonkin realize their draconity through a process called "Awakening." Usually, this takes awhile, but some take the express lane. Personally, it's the seneic route for me, but I'm not complaining. The express route can sometimes lead to a dizzying load of long-forgotten memories and such. Nothing if not migrane-inducing.
And for the record, I am damn sick of seeing all these negative definations of dragonkin, and even otherkin in general. Few of us think/act like that. That's focusing on the idiots, and generalizing the main population of us. I don't give a damn if someone doesn't believe me if I told them I was a dragonkin. Everyone has their opinions, if they choose to ignore me, meh.
Finally, not a one of us, or just about anyone I know for that matter has even thought about pulling an AK-47 on a school full of people. Being dragonkin doesn't mean you want to slaughter people.

I am a dragonkin. Just in case you didn't figure that out ;).
2. I am not actually a person, I am really a dragon kin.
Not to be confused with Dragon-kin -- a mixed race dragon decedent usually human but also: demon, angel, orc, and centaur.
Dragonkin do not accept the possibility that they are mentally unstable, and will make unsupported claims that you are an ignorant human that could never hope to be as knowing as them.
Dragonkin also disregard science, and claim the world is run on magic(Not unlike Scientologists and Creationists).
