Heroes of the Sky
A gold dragon of considerable age, Gahzrital is the currently leader of Bahest. In practice, day-to-day life in the city is managed by a council that he appoints and he rarely interferes with. Instead, Gahzrital serves as an extremely wise sage for the council to call upon when they are not sure when to proceed. When all is said and done however, there is no doubt that if the council made a decision Gahzrital disapproved of and he told them why, they’d change their mind in a heartbeat.
Gahzrital also is leader of what is left of his gold dragon brood. The brood has been without its queen for several hundred years now, so he watches over the young so that their lives are not needlessly wasted on their own. Occasionally some of his young fly free from the spires of Bahest and wonder the country side, but none dare venture too far away from Bahest as he has warned them all that they have enemies, both dragon and otherwise, that would love to hunt them down.
It is rumored that in the event that Bahest is attacked, a secret army of dragon riders called The Draconic Guard mount the backs of Gahzrital’s young and take the sky, fighting off the attackers and leading Bahest ground forces and growing airship fleet. No one has ever admitted to being a member of this guard however, nor are there confirmations of its existence.
