The Eternal Emperor "Ashwing"
The Eternal Emperor Ashardalon rules over Alden with tyrannical force. He sits in the Imperial City which has been entirely refitted for the dragon’s pleasure. His subjects, dragonborn, a few humans, fire giants, salamanders and worse, are the only creatures to walk the streets of the Imperial City now. All residence, regardless of race, have been moved to holding camps all over the country. Small villages have been left alone, but only because they are too out of the way to bother Ashwing. Never-the-less any bit of farmland is under the dragon’s control, and so even small villages are being forced to move to find food.
So far, no other red dragon has been seen as the underling of Ashardalon; only countless soldiers.
