Ruler of the Tyrant Cult
The Shadow Queen is an ancient dragon who was once handmaiden to the former consort to the Tyrant himself. When the Uprising finally took the Grand Capital of Tiam-Bahut, she fled with a group of young dragons and whatever they could lay their talons upon. Using a cauldron of rebirth she prolongs her life but the ongoing effects have diminishing returns – her flesh continually becomes loose and drops off her frame in chunks – sometimes small, some large. Her odour is a noticeable pungent one – for a Black Dragon the Shadow Queen smells like cooked reptile meat, not swampy like most other Blacks.
