Shandrel was an old green dragon that lorded over the Noxious Glade, claiming it as her domain. She lived deep in the Forest in a hidden lair that few living creatures knew of.
Typical of her kind, Shandrel was cunning, manipulative, and had an insatiable hunger for growing her wealth and power. The latter, however, was tempered by a measure of patience that dragons must possess if they wished to reach her old age.
Shandrel was surrounded by her offspring, young but ambitious green dragons that defered to her rule absolutely.
The Old Wyrm was always looking to recruit powerful allies and adventurers, leveraging on their skills to further her domain and wealth.
It is for this very reason Shandrel not only tolerated the presence of Greenest but encouraged its existence, as it helped to weed out her weaker children and identify potentially powerful allies.
The innkeeper and his famous force of adventurers, made a name for themselves by slaying one of her children a century ago.
The head of the Shandrel’s firstborn was mounted over the large hearth of the Inn’s common room. She tolerated the inn’s insult to her kind as it served as a reminder to her children of the folly of being too arrogant.
Shandrel was able to take on the form of an ophidian to disguise her true form.
