Decomposing the year
Each season has four months of 6 octains each, but the 3rd that has a 7th additional octain. Months are linked to the element of the current season, sometimes mixed with the one from the previous or next season. Only the last month is bound to another element than the seasons’ ones.
Each octain (week) has exactly 8 days of the same duration. Each day has its own element.

- A second on Dracca matches a second on Earth, but a day on Dracca has 11,904 more seconds than a day on Earth, and a year has 435 more days.
- These differences mean that a year on Dracca is about 2.5 times longer than a year on Earth
- So a dragon‘s age must so be multiplied by 2.5 to be known in Earth’s year
