Deep in the bowels of a forgotten civilization, a horrid creature dwells in an ancient pyramid, attended to by an insane cult. One day, the creature’s sacrifice came in the form of an azure egg. Had the poor creature within been lucky, it would have been consumed then and there. It was not. Changed within its egg by the otherworldly horror, the dragon was born as one of the Horror's minions. Now growing in mind, body and insanity, the dragon lairs near the Horror, muttering to itself, torn between inborn loyalty to itself, to Law and to its Lord.
"It below gave me life... It should not live! I must serve it... It must die again! Must not eat others who serve... so tasty... gold masks so pretty. Demand tribute! Worship! Take tribute! Ia! Ia! Zargon, Child of Carcosa!, Spawn of Yellow! It is killed and is reborn! To Destroy... The Eye!"
