Question from GREG STAFFORD. Answers by HARALD SMITH.
Q: “Who were the famous Sairdite kings of war who fought against the EWF?”
Henjark Dogsbreath [ca.921-925] who first rose against the dragons and slew the Heart of Gold.
Madasharesh Paraham Verenmars [960-991] the greatest of the kings. Verenmars rescued the Dog Father from the Lost Pack. He slew the ManDragon of the Riverjoin Palace [at the conjunction of the Oslir and the Aryela rivers] and bound it to the Net of Jajagappa. He gained the Divine Cup of Vingkot. He fashioned the Ring of Saird and woke BarDom at its heart. He gained the friendship of Holaya, the Red Woman, but married the Earth Queen. At last, he fought and slew the Shadow of the Golden Dragon.
Dumacaresh Heelbiter [991-1001] who entered the Dragon’s Bowels to unleash the Nightmare Run and the Darkwind Raid, bringing fears to the Above and Beyonds.
Hagikarvesh the Rabid [1001-1012] who slew the Little Wyrms and the Dragonclaw Spectres, but was cursed by the Magi.
Pilavaresh Bonecrusher [1012-1033] who broke the backs of both the Black Eel and the Red Wyrm and crushed the Brother Dragon.
Ashaloresh Marroweater [1033-1059] who slew the Soul-tongued Dragon.
Verrogors Blackdog [1059-1075] who seized the Dragonwall only to be betrayed by the Sylilans. When he returned he slew the Crimson Horned Dragon.
Suzaraug the Warhound [1075-1092] who slew the Dragon Ram and let loose the Dogs of War.
Wyrmskull [1092-1108] who captured the mind of the Seven-banded Wyrm and slew the Inhuman King twice.
Sharvenatars the Summoner [1108-1120] who summoned the True Golden Horde. He called forth the Dog Fathers and the Rising Stallions. He carried the Net of Jajagappa. He slew the Dragon Emperor and tore him apart in the Dragonkill. Because he was a descendant and true servant of Jajagappa that god came and cast his net into the maw of the dragon to preserve him from oblivion.
Dorshenab Lost Howl [1120-1124] who carried the Dog Standard from Dragon Pass and created the prophecies of Saird.
