Hoard of the Dragon Queen
Queen of Evil Dragons
Tiamat is a gigantic dragon whose five heads reflect the forms of the chromatic dragons that worship her – black, blue, green, red, and white, and each head has its own brain and its own intelligence. She is a terror on the battlefield, capable of annihilating whole armies with her five breath weapons, her formidable spellcasting, and her fearsome claws.
Tiamat is the patron goddess of chromatic dragons and the embodiment of greed and envy. She gave birth to the five primary species of chromatic dragon, each taking the form of one of her heads. Tiamat combines the powers of all of the chromatic dragons. She epitomizes the avarice of evil dragons, believing that the multiverse and all its treasures will one day be hers and hers alone. Confined to the Nine Hells by the power of the greater gods, Tiamat longs to escape and wreak havoc upon the world.
In the wake of the Sundering, the gods have stepped back and left their mortal worshipers to govern their own destinies. This has opened the door to Tiamat’s return. Brought together by the cult, the evil dragons forge a powerful alliance. The leaders of the Cult view Tiamat as the unstoppable weapon they need to achieve total dragon supremacy and forge a powerful draconic empire, the likes of which hasn’t been seen in millennia.
Tiamat’s most hated enemy is Bahamut the Platinum Dragon, with whom she shares control of the faith of dragonkind. She also holds a special enmity for Asmodeus, who long ago stripped her of the rule of Avernus and who continues to curb the Dragon Queen’s power.
