Tamarand is a gold great wyrm[1] who was once second only to King Lareth in command of all gold dragons and the followers of Bahamut.[citation needed]

Ascension to PostitionEdit

In 1373 DR, the former King of Justice, Lareth, was slain in battle by Tamarand who was Lareth's deputy and brother. Tamarand reluctantly challenged Lareth for leadership of all goodly dragons after Lareth's reasoning and judgment had been corrupted by the Dracorage. Lareth, teetering on the edge of madness as a result of the Rage, eagerly accepted, intent on destroying this obviously power-hungry, traitorous "friend", who must surely covet the position of King of Justice. At first Tamarand tried to subdue Lareth, using only spells to disable not destroy, but finally Tamarand was forced to deliver a fatal blow. As required by the protocols of the Ptarian Code, the gold dragon, Larendrammagar ("Nexus"), and the silver dragon, Havarlan bore witness to the battle.[2] Tamarand was greatly grieved from killing his superior and brother.[3] Afterward, Tamarand did not accept the mantle of royalty.[4]

Recent HistoryEdit

Almost immediately after slaying his brother Lareth, Tamarand was forced to fly to the Monastery of the Yellow Rose, and lead a group of metallic dragons in lifting the siege of the monastery from a flight of chromatic dragons sent by Sammaster.[5]
