Dromadus was a dragon and was also once the Dragon King, but is infamously known as the only Dragon King to forsake the crown and took to becoming a pacifist. He is the largest dragon known, twice the size of the current Dragon King, Celebrant, and has stone-like scales that make him look as though he is living rock and has been compared to a living mountain. He is also the oldest dragon at Wyrmroost, but turned into a wizard later on to help in the war. As a wizard he is known as Andromadus.
During his reign, Dromadus had a nephew named Ezarod, whom he loved even more than his own children, as he recognized virtues and qualities his nephew had in spades while they were lacking. However, to his bitter dismay, Ezarod challenged his uncle for the crown. Dromadus was obligated to answer the challenge and bested his nephew in combat. However, Ezarod would not yield even though he was outmatched, and to keep his crown and the respect of his kind, Dromadus was forced to slay his nephew.
The act would haunt him forever onward thence, that he lost all interest in rule and strength, Dromadus did the unthinkable and stepped down as the Dragon King, bequeathing his crown to another dragon whom he thought would be a good ruler (only for his successor to be slain for the crown ten years later).
The act of forsaking his throne caused all dragons to consider Dromadus a disgrace, including his wife and children. He became an outcast and resided alone in his lair beneath the sequoia grove, and became the guardian to the entrance to the Path of Dreams. He resides there alone in the dark, and survives on dragon meal, brought to him by his ogre servants.
He was sought out by Kendra and Seth Sorenson, who had become the new caretakers of Wyrmroost, at the suggestion of the Somber Knight, in search of a magic scepter to fortify the defenses of the Blackwell Keep. After explaining their plight to him and agreeing to terms he requested, Dromadus directed them to the Path of Dreams.
In exchange for helping them, Dromadus asked Kendra and Seth each a favor he would collect in time, as well as that if ever they had the chance to kill a dragon, they would show that dragon as much mercy as they can.
Eve and Tess visited Dromadus in hopes to recieve information. He told them that the dragons had planned an attack against Blackwell Keep they expected to succeed, which it did when the undead from the Blackwell was released. Dromadus thwn transformed into a wizard and saved the group at the Keep. As a wizard he is known as Andromadus.
