The caves were littered with Tiamat's own treasure hoard, which lay scattered on the floor throughout the complex.
The portal to Dis was guarded by Tiamat herself. She only let those who offered a worthy sacrifice through.
In the late 15th century DR, a ritual performed at the behest of Severin Silrajin by a group of exiled Red Wizards of Thay with the help of Zariel brought Tiamat's Temple into the Well of Dragons in the Sunset Mountains, as part of an attempt to summon her to Toril.
Rumors & LegendsEdit
It was unclear why Tiamat was imprisoned in Avernus. Some sages suggested that Tiamat was bound to the layer as a result of a powerful curse from a giant deity slain by her, at the time of the war between dragons and giants. Her confinement marked the end of that conflict, as well as the end of the dominance of giants and dragons in the Prime Material plane, opening the way for the dominance of humanoid civilization.
The lair was also inhabited by Tiamat's mates and their descendants. The realm was generally avoided by demons, who were aware of Tiamat's lack of interest in the Blood War. It was, however, occasionally visited by devils offering gifts, hoping to seal bargains with Tiamat.
