Thauglorimorgorus(also known as Thauglor, Black Doom, and King of the Forest Country[2]) was a black dragon and ruler of the old area known as the Forest Country, southeast of the Stormhorns.[2] He took payments from wyverns who inhabited the lake at its centre, in exchange for allowing them to stay.[3]

AppearanceEdit

As of -400 DR, Thauglor was beginning to show the signs of age: his scales were fading from ebony to violet and his eyes from yellow to dusky purple.[4]

BackgroundEdit

In -205 DR, Thauglor chose Gloriankithsanus and Mistinarperadnacles to accompany him when he met with Iliphar Nelnueve to settle the differences between the dragons and the elves.[5] Iliphar challenged Thauglor to a Feint of Honor that would become known as The Passing of Power and Thauglor was defeated, causing the elves to lay claim to the Forest Country.[6]

DeathEdit

Thauglor descended upon Castle Obarskyr in Suzail in 1018 DR, demolishing around a quarter of it and gutting the rest in a large fire. He withdrew voluntarily before he could be engaged by the defending military,[7] but instead of returning to his lair, he withdrew only as far as the King's Forest.[8] He was engaged in combat by Thanderahast who was riding on the back of a wyvern. Thanderahast managed to escape Thauglor's acid breath, but he was badly burned in the process. Jorunhast attacked the dragon with a wand of fire, prompting Thauglor to follow Jorunhast and (then Prince) Azoun II into a trap where a row of archers targeted his wings. Thauglor crash-landed where he was set upon by Cormyrean soldiers. Azoun II wielded Orbyn against him, tearing open his belly and stabbing him in the eye. Jorunhast used the wound in Thauglor's belly to attack again with the fire wand, while Azoun finished the dragon by stabbing it through the brain.[9]

PhilosophyEdit

Thauglor considered the entire land known as the Forest Country to be under his command, and did not recognize the authority of any other intelligent race, considering them all to be invaders, on the grounds that he and his kind had been there for far longer than anyone else.[10]
