Maelestor Rex was an ancient black dragon in Dragonspear Castle circa 1363 DR.[2]


In the past, Maelestor Rex made a bargain with the cornugon Vesarius in order to learn some unique spells. In exchange, Vesarius only wanted one of his horns.

However, in 1363 DR, Vesarius made an incantation upon the horn to enslave Maelestor and forced him to join the Hordes of Dragonspear, specifically the Storm, a group composed of 100 bugbears and 100 ogres plus Maelestor Rex.[2]

In 1374 DR, Maelestor was living in the High Moor.[1]
