The Dragon Hegemons: Black and Green

Black: Kovan’rorshac and Pithwatolzar

Kovan’rorshac and Pithwatolzar were two brothers with Kovan’rorshac as the elder. They ruled in the swamp that would come to be know as Danar’s Marsh. The two brothers were especially apathetic towards the administration of their realm. As long as they controlled all the wealth of the swamp, little else mattered to them. As a result, the people of Danar’s Marsh were relatively free during the draconic hegemony over Cimmeria and few black dragon hybrid children were sired by the patriarch brothers.

Kovan’rorshac and Pithwatolzar were one of the first to be imprisoned during the Dragon War. Pithwatolzar was bound within the Black Dragon Orb while Kovan’rorshac was set to guard it. The Orb was then used to control the black dragons to fight on the side of the Dragon War Heroes. After the war Tentineh placed the Orb in Greshendale to protect it and power his city. Cecilia entered stasis to return when the Orb was broken.

The Orb remained at Greshendale until the city’s fall during the Second Alliance War. After the crash the Black Orb was retrieved by the Xorians and stored in the Museum of Power. Kovan’rorshac joined the defenders of the Museum, but not as a living dragon. Blendegad drained his blood and Kovan’rorshac rose again as a vampiric black dragon.

Kovan’rorshac fought on Xoria’s side during the Battle of Nox. He was defeated by Barakah, but as a vampire he could not be killed easily. After the Second Alliance War Kovan’rorshac and the Black Dragon Orb were moved to Mars’ Oasis for storage and protection. Kovan’rorshac remains an undead beast, scheming for when he can be released from his prison.

Green: Cordax and Hashterainon

Cordax and Hashterainon were sisters with Cordax being the elder. They ruled in the Dry Woods which would later be known as Bigby’s Forest. They killed the elven queen, Rarventataa, during their initial attack to claim the Dry Woods. While in control Cordax and Hashterainon never shied away from using their subjects to get what they wanted. They set up a hierarchy to ensure loyalty of their mortal slaves. This system served them well during the Dragon War, but still failed against the might of the Dragon War Heroes.

The green dragon hegemons played their subjects against each other. The Elves of the Dry Woods split into two factions. A group of druidic Naturalists allied themselves with the dragons, viewing them as the pinnacle of the natural order. The other group named themselves the Patriots and wished to subvert and overthrow the dragons. These two groups bickered and skirmished for decades until full fledged war broke out during the Dragon War.

As the Dragon War began, the Naturalists were led by Eathirilu and the Patriots were led by Bigby. A back and forth took place within the Dry Woods while Cordax and Hashterainon assisted the other dragon hegemons. Eathirilu got the upper hand when he captured Bigby and the Copper Orb of Dragonkind. Eathirilu pressed his advantage by assaulting Phoenix. His plan failed as prior to his capture Bigby had used the Copper Dragon Orb to warn the fellow Heroes of the Dragon War.

Cordax and Hashterainon joined the final eastward assault of the Dragon War. They led their army along with Eathirilu and the unseelie fey, Davonisi. The devastation of the raid drove Eathirilu away from their cause. In the final battle Cordax and Hashterainon were defeated. Hashterainon was sealed within the Green Dragon Orb and Cordax was set to guard her. After the war Tentineh placed the Orb in Greshendale to protect it and power his city. Bigby entered stasis to return when the Orb was broken.

The Orb remained at Greshendale until the city’s fall during the Second Alliance War. After the crash the Green Orb was retrieved by the Xorians and stored in the Museum of Power. Cordax joined the defenders of the Museum, but not as a living dragon. Blendegad drained her blood and Cordax rose again as a vampiric green dragon.

Cordax fought on Xoria’s side during the Battle of Nox. She battled Hercules and Hermes to a standstill. After the Second Alliance War Cordax and the Green Dragon Orb were moved to Mars’ Oasis for storage and protection. Cordax remains an undead beast, scheming for when she can be released from her prison.
