The Sons of Tiamat
From the wanton first Dragon-Gods, Apsu and Tiamat, a whole race of Gods and Demigods were born. This is a partial list of them, as might have been compiled by one of Minu’s brothers.
- Dahak, the Endless Destruction CE Firstborn among Tiamat’s brood, Dahak is revered by Evil Dragons throughout the universe. Dahak is also infamous for his role as the father of Drakes. These poor imitations of true Dragons are nonetheless physically diverse and impressive. However, their lack of Draconic sentience displays Dahak’s fundamental nature as a corrupter and destroyer rather than a creator. Dahak is primarily worshiped by Chromatic Dragons, including a group sextuplet Red Dragons who rule the six moons of Dahak’s celestial domain. (Areas of concern: Destruction, Evil Dragons, Drakes, Greed; Domains: Chaos, Destruction, Evil, Scalykind, Trickery; Favored weapons: bite and whip; Unholy Symbol: A burning scale brands the body of a fallen human; Sacred Colors: all chromatic dragon colors: black, blue, green, red, white.)
- Astilabor, the Gatherer N Also born of Tiamat, she is concerned primarily with wealth and knowledge. A dedicated follower of Astilabor will gather great volumes of secret lore as well as great treasure. Astilabor is credited with teaching Metallic dragons the ability to take humanoid forms. Her celestial domain in a secretive location is said to hold many artifacts from the birth of the Universe. (Areas of concern: Magic, Wealth; Domains: Knowledge, Magic, Scalykind, Trickery; Favored Weapon: Dagger; Holy Symbol: A silver dragon reading a book; Sacred colors: Gold, silver.)
- Faluzure, the Vengeant CE is another God born of Apsu and Tiamat. He took greatly after his mother-goddess, and is said to be full of unending malice directed at all gods older than himself. To Dragons, Faluzure represents the cannibalistic instinct: to slay and eat the younger is to gain their power for yourself. Worshiped primarily by those Dragons who are threatened by young foes, Faluzure is not invited to many Godly parties. His ultimate goal is to kill his father and take his place atop the Draconic pantheon. (Areas of concern: Cannibalism, Dragons, Power; Domains: Chaos, Destruction, Evil, Scalykind; Favored Weapon: Bite; Unholy Symbol: A small dragon with a mortal wound against the silhouette of a bigger dragon; Sacred Colors: Red, Black.)
- Tamara, the Benefactor NG is a younger goddess born of Apsu and Tiamat. Symbolizing abundant and active life, she is worshiped primarily by younger Dragons. Additionally, she empowers a few mortal humanoids with divine spell casting, aiming to create abundance among other races too. Her ever-shifting domain-planet is always found orbiting a young star. (Areas of concern: Healing, redemption, growth, youth; Domains: Community, Good, Healing, Luck, Scalykind; Favored Weapon: Quarterstaff; Holy Symbol: A rosebud with a dragon’s head in a smiling repose; Sacred Colors: Green, White.)
