Klauth, also known as Old Snarl, was supposedly one of the eldest dragons alive who had not been turned into a dracolich.[7]

I am old as time itself, the infinite wisdom of eternity is mine to command. Your name and your deeds are known to me, Hero of Neverwinter, and I shall remember them long after history has forgotten you.
— Klauth[2]

Personality[edit | edit source]

He was thoroughly evil, especially to his own kind, though he did have a few redeeming factors such as granting boons to creatures he considered no threat, crushing the odd orc horde on a whim, and the fact that he has avoided the advances of the Cult of the Dragon.[7]

Activities[edit | edit source]

For such an active dragon of his age, he had lived much longer than his race's life expectancy would normally allow without the aid of the Cult's methods. This was because he had developed a magical process in which he used red dragons' eggs to increase his own size, health, and vigor.[7]

Lair[edit | edit source]

Klauth had his lair in the northern Sword Coast, in a narrow winding valley dubbed Klauthen Vale in the mountains west of Mirabar. From there Old Snarl used his powerful scrying spells and abilities to learn as much as possible about the other inhabitants of the Sword Coast; this means the old wyrm was rarely caught off guard by intruders.[7]

History[edit | edit source]

In 1339 DR Klauth, along with the green dragon Aglaraerose devoured a horde of orcs in the Spine of the World mountains.[8] On Mirtul 4 in 1360 DR, Klauth was waylaid by a pair of white dragonsAerihykloarara and Ruuthundrarar—and the blue dragon Irdrithkryn, who worked in concert to kill him. Although Klauth slew each of his attackers and plundered Irdrithkryn's lair, he was gravely wounded, almost losing a wing and having half his body frozen solid. After this battle, Klauth found a new lair just west of Raven Rock to recuperate, this lair became known as Klauthen Vale.[3]

Rage of Dragons[edit | edit source]

In 1373 DR, Klauth succumbed to the effects of the Dracorage mythal and appeared above Mirabar, enraged and with destruction in mind. After destroying much of the surface city he was only barely driven off by the combined efforts of Mirabar's defenders and the Crystal dragon, Saryndalaghlothtor.[1]
