Visadrix: Brass Dragon Shel’ath: Bronze Dragon Walgnuu: Cobalt Dragon Shezail: Mercury Dragon Balashtaar: Orium Dragon
Sent down by Bahamut to watch over the people these dragons upheld the law and smote evil where it rose. These dragons were revered by the people and in some cases even worshiped. However Tiamat grew jealous of her brother and plotted to overthrow him, this would lead to her becoming an evil goddess. Tiamat had helped Bahamut create the five Pillars by binding parts of his essence into them, and as such knew their weaknesses. Tiamat devised a plan to kill her Brothers paragons and eat their hearts so she herself would have the power Bahamut bestowed upon them. At this point in time Vecna and Bahamut were good friends and Vecna discovered Tiamat’s plot. So vecna and Bahamut devised a plan to deliver justice upon her.Unbeknown to Bahamut, Vecna was working against him to meet his own needs. Bahamut had only intended to expose Tiamat, vecna planned her downfall, with another god out of the way he would soon rise to power. Bahamut set his trap,he would have the five pillars meet where Tiamat was planing to ambush them, and when she did Bahamut would reveal himself and expose her, however Vecna had other plans. When Bahamut was waiting, hidden out of sight, Vecna sent his minions to delay the god, his plan worked. Bahamut was distracted fighting off Vecna’s minions while Tiamat fought and killed the five Pillars, and ate their hearts. Vecna however had secretly poisoned the dragons so Tiamat herself ingested this poison. It warped and malformed her body into that of a dragon but caused her to grow four more heads; Blue, White, Green, Red, Black. The now furious Tiamat swore she would avenge herself one day, and kill Bahamaut. She fled and began creating dragons in her likeness with similar powers to the ones she had consumed, and then set these out to wreak havoc upon the world. Bahamut, in retaliation amassed his own army of dragons and set them out to defeat Tiamat’s horde, from this the dragon wars begun.
