That was bugging me too. At first I was wondering what was up with all the geckos. Then I got to thinking that what could geckos possibly represent.

36 families includes those without powers. I thought perhaps he meant that 24 of the 36 have Dragon powers.

In the last moments of before the destruction of the eye, Tets ditched his machete and opened a gate. We were guessing before that the eye contained the knowledge of how to open/close a gate.

Regarding the eye, it looks like it contained the actual Dragons/Powers themselves, and not the access codes as some forum members have said. The powers are not innate within each person.

Maya has some control over wood (pun not intended), as the text says. So yes, her tie probably has wood fibres in it. I don't see how the fight was close at all. Maya could barely hurt Tetsuhito, and he was pummeling her like a punching bag. Bushichi & Mitsuomi would likely also be no match for him....
