The Dragon Gods

Aasterinian the Messenger
Alignment: chaotic neutral
Domains: Chaos, Dragon, Luck, Travel, Trickery, Charm, Illusion, and Trade.
Favored weapon: Scimitar
The goddess of travel and secrets

Alignment: lawful evil
Domains: Dragon, Pride, Chaos, Evil, War, and Fury
Favored weapon: Scourge
The goddess of war and Tiamat’s twin, Asha is said to have appeared as a slender, wingless serpent with three heads. Her colors are orange, purple and yellow. Although long reported deceased after a battle with Bahamut, she still has small pockets of followers in hidden corners of the world. Her clerics still receive magics through prayer leading some to believe that she simply bides her time, waiting to return and make war upon the world once again.

Astilabor the Hoardmistress
Alignment: neutral
Domains: Dragon, Protection, Wealth, Cavern, and Metal
Favored weapon: Greatsword
A slender dragon with golden scales studded with priceless gems. She represents the natural draconic desire to acquire treasure and power, but she dislikes the naked greed displayed by Tiamat and Tiamat’s followers.

Bahamut the Platinum Dragon, King of the Good Dragons, and Lord of the North Wind
Alignment: lawful good
Domains: Air, Dragon, Good, Luck, Protection, Nobility, and Storm
Favored weapon: Mace
Although all good dragons pay homage to Bahamut, gold, silver, and brass dragons hold him in particularly high regard. Other dragons, even evil ones (except his archrival Tiamat), respect Bahamut for his wisdom and power.

Chronepsis the Silent Watcher
Alignment: neutral
Domains: Death, Dragon, Knowledge, Fate, Planning, and Time
Favored weapon: Scythe
The god of fate, Chronepsis is a passionless observer of the world. He passes judgement on all dragons when they die, deciding where their souls go in the afterlife. Unlike Lendys, Chronepsis is uninterested in justice: he merely observes what is and what is not. He is also uninvolved in the activities of the living, and it is said that only a cataclysm of world-shaking proportions could rouse Chronepsis from his disinterest.

Alignment: neutral evil
Domains: Death, Dragon, Evil, Darkness, and Undeath
Favored weapon: Dagger
The god of decay. Falazure is the lord of energy draining, undeath, decay, and exhaustion. It is generally accepted that Falazure created (or had a hand in the creation of) the first undead dragons, such as dracoliches, vampiric dragons, and ghostly dragons.

Garyx the Firelord, All-Destroyer, and Cleanser of Worlds
Alignment: chaotic evil
Domains: Chaos, Destruction, Dragon, Evil, Fire, and Renewal
Favored weapon: Great axe
The god of destruction, Garyx is a red dragon so large his wings blot out the entire sky when he takes flight. He symbolizes the sheer power and destructive force of dragonkind, and some argue that Garyx is actually insane, as a result of his long occupation of the Windswept Depths of Pandemonium. Despite his sheer destructive potential, he also represents the ability to recover from adversity.

Hlal the Jester
Alignment: chaotic good
Domains: Chaos, Dragon, Good, Trickery, and Rune
Favored weapon: Short sword
The goddess of humor and inspiration. Of the dragon gods, she is the most friendly to nondragons (even Aasterinian enjoys a reputation of playful danger).

Io the Concordant Dragon, the Great Eternal Wheel, Swallower of Shades, and the Ninefold Dragon
Alignment: neutral
Domains: Dragon, Knowledge, Magic, Strength, Travel, Wealth, and Spell
Favored weapon: the Staff
The lord of the gods, and creator of dragonkind, he can (and does) appear as any dragon type, from the smallest pseudodragon to the largest great wyrm. His followers’ can be of any alignment, and Io counts no other faiths as his enemies.

Lendys Scale of Justice, the Balancer, and Weigher of Lives
Alignment: lawful neutral
Domains: Destruction, Dragon, Law, Protection, and Retribution
Favored weapon: Longsword
The god of justice. Unlike Chronepsis, who judges the life of a dragon only after its death, Lendys metes out justice during a dragon’s life. His scales are a tarnished silver, some say because he cares more about judging others than tending to himself. Lendys is the arbiter of dragonkind, serving as judge, jury, and executioner alike. When a dragon has committed an injustice against dragonkind, Lendys (or one of his trio of great wyrm silver dragons) is dispatched to deal out appropriate justice. Punishments are severe, and appeals unheard of.

Alignment: neutral
Domains: Dragon, Knowledge, Mind, Scalykind, Shadow, and Trickery
Favored weapon: Rapier
God of Psionics and secrets, Sardior appears as a long sinewy dragon covered with deep ruby red scales and a playful expression. He is also known to be a great conversationalist with a quick wit. Sardior is served by five thanes, each representing a breed of gem dragon. Seradess, an obsidian dragon, once served as a sixth thane, but Sardior destroyed her and banished her obsidian kin from his court. She had attempted to destroy Vadrii the diamond dragon, and take her place as Sardior’s mate. Vadrii still lives, though she sleeps, and Sardior holds out hope she will awaken soon.

Tamara Her Beneficence
Alignment: neutral good
Domains: Dragon, Good, Healing, Strength, Sun, and Family
Favored weapon: Short spear
The goddess of life, Tamara is the kindest and most benevolent of the draconic deities. Some mistake this quality for weakness, though such beings don’t make the same error twice. She appears as a luminously beautiful silver dragon, her eyes shining with the brightness of the sun itself.

Tiamat the Chromatic Dragon
Alignment: lawful evil
Domains: Destruction, Dragon, Evil, Greed, Law, Trickery, Hatred, Scalykind, and Tyranny
Favored weapon: Heavy Pick
The goddess of evil dragonkind, and creator ofevil dragonkind. All evil dragons pay homage to Tiamat; green and blue dragons acknowledge her sovereignty most readily. Good dragons have a healthy respect for Tiamat, though they usually avoid mentioning her or even thinking about her. In her natural form, Tiamat is a thick-bodied dragon with five heads and a wyvern’s tail. Each head is a different color: white, black, green, blue, and red. Her massive body is striped in those colors.
