Klauth, also known as Old Snarl, was supposedly one of the eldest dragons alive who had not been turned into a dracolich.[4]


He was thoroughly evil, especially to his own kind, though he did have a few redeeming factors such as granting boons to creatures he considered no threat, crushing the odd orc horde on a whim and the fact that he has avoided the advances of the Cult of the Dragon.[4]


For such an active dragon of his age, he had lived much longer than his race's life expectancy would normally allow without the aid of the cult's methods. This is because he has developed a magical process in which he can use the eggs of red dragons to increase his own size, health and vigor.[4]


Klauth makes his lair in the northern Sword Coast, in a narrow winding valley dubbed Klauthen Vale in the mountains west of Mirabar. From here Old Snarl uses his powerful scrying spells and abilities to learn as much as possible about the other inhabitants of the Sword Coast; this means the old wyrm is rarely caught off guard by intruders.[4]


In 1339 DR Klauth, along with the green dragon Aglaraerose devoured a horde of orcs in the Spine of the World mountains.[5] On 3 Mirtul 1360 DR, Klauth was waylaid by a pair of white dragons and the blue dragon, Irdrithkryn, working in concert to kill him. Although Klauth slew each of his attackers and plundered Irdrithkryn's lair, he was gravely wounded, almost losing a wing and having half his body frozen solid. After this battle, Klauth found a new lair just east of Raven Rock to recuperate, this lair became known as Klauthen Vale.[2]

Rage of DragonsEdit

In 1373 DR, Klauth succumbed to the effects of the Dracorage mythal and appeared above Mirabar, enraged and with destruction in mind. After destroying much of the surface city he was only barely driven off by the combined efforts of Mirabar's defenders and the Crystal dragon, Saryndalaghlothtor.[1]
