Dragonmarks are elaborate skin patterns, similar to tattoos, that grant their bearers innate spellcasting abilities. Each type of mark is tied to large, extended families that each control a different industry or trade in Eberron. Not every member of a given family possesses a dragonmark; conversely, merely possessing a dragonmark does not grant special status within the house.

The twelve true dragonmarks are as follows:
Mark of Detection
Mark of Finding
Mark of Handling
Mark of Healing
Mark of Hospitality
Mark of Making
Mark of Passage
Mark of Scribing
Mark of Sentinel
Mark of Shadow
Mark of Storm
Mark of Warding

Dragonmarks most commonly manifest themselves as Least dragonmarks, which provide minor magical powers. In some individuals these can develop into larger and more elaborate marks, respectively known as Lesser and Greater dragonmarks.

Aberrant dragonmarks occasionally appear, which are not tied to the dragonmarked houses and may have a variety of other effects.
