Name: Xalanthisalisith / "Xala"
Reason for notoriety:
Xala is an ancient Red, who has lived for over thousand years. She is the most famous of Dragons, the most feared, and most used to scare children to good behavior. "Xala will come cook you and eat you." She is seen rarely and only when venturing out from her horde to collect more, to raid for food, or maybe just bored, and wants to burn a city of village.
Xala is most well known for her seduction of the human King Thormund, of an Empire that no longer exists. The tale is she transformed into a Human woman of unsurpassed beauty, with fiery red hair. She convinced this King to gather all the wealth he could, invading kingdoms and nearby lands for wealth, and building a great vault and fortress to store it all, at the behest of his now wife "Xala". In the end Xalanthisalisith, destroyed the King, his kingdom, and still resides in the ruins of this ancient nation and the fortress that was built to protect it.
Lair/Locale for Living: Fortress of Fire (Original name lost, probably to dragon fire.)
Minions: Xala works alone. She is ancient and powerful and needs no others sharing in her Horde. She has been pouring over magical tomes for a thousand years, and can conjure any help she might need.
Special Attack: Standard Ancient Red Fire Breath, and extremely high level magic use on top of that.
Etc: Living thousands of years amidst the tomes and treasure hordes that she has accumulated have made her possibly the most powerful magic users that exist. Many have gone to raid her lair, and wizards requesting her tomes and knowledge if gained. (Player hook.)
