Magic connects with the mage and pretty much becomes a central part of them, and since dragonslayer magic is so rare and uncommon it's probably either really old, or hard to learn. Then again I doubt dragons would go around teaching it to just anybody, though it would be kinda cool to get dragon lessons.
