Tamarand was a gold great wyrm[2] who was the King of Justice as of 1479 DR.[1] Before that, he served as the second-in-comand to the former king, the gold dragon Lareth.[3] Tamarand was also a chosen of Bahamut[1] and a recurrent ally of the Talons of Justice.[4]

HistoryEdit

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, wrongly suspecting Tamarand was about to betray him. At first Tamarand tried to subdue Lareth, using only spells to disable him, but finally Tamarand was forced to deliver a fatal blow. As required by the protocols of the Ptarian Code, the gold dragon Larendrammagar and the silver dragon Havarlan bore witness to the battle.[5] Tamarand was greatly grieved from killing his superior and brother, and initially did not accept the mantle of royalty.[6][3]

Almost immediately after slaying 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.[7]

Around 1479 DR, Tamarand had finally became the King of Justice, and a chosen of Bahamut as well. He and his followers opposed the Warlock Knights of Vaasa, and the forces of titan lord Kultaakarr.[1]
