The tale of Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Earth Dragon, Goat, Rat and Metal Dragon

There is a weird clan living under the same roof. What's makes this clan weird is the members of the clan itself. The members are an Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Earth Dragon, Goat, Rat and Metal (Golden) Dragon. The clan leads by the Ox. It is weird because supposed the dragons lead the clan but because of some circumstances, the clan need to be lead by the Ox. Ox is the responsible leader for the clan and helped by the tiger whom managed to keep the clan in a peaceful way. Rabbit acts as the supporter for the clan whenever the clan faced any crisis however, the rabbit need to be payed in a certain way. Earth Dragon might be the most peaceful creature among the members but it got an unpredictable temper and might be dangerous to the others. Goat played as the most playful members among the clan's members but whenever it get serious nobody dares to interrupt. Goat bestie is the Rat. Rat is the most calm amongst all, somehow the Rat is an opportunist and will sneak in whenever it got it chances. Metal (Golden) Dragon might the be the most stubborn and confident member of the clan. It never listen to other except for the leader, Ox. However, deep inside the metal dragon has a soft heart and will burst into tears whenever it felt touched. The clan always faces plenty of crisis but they managed to survive and get over it. It is because the clan itself is a family.
