Uthagrimnoshaarl,[1] also known as the Dire Dragon, was a shadow dracolich who acted as the guardian of the Well of Dragons in Skull Gorge.[2]


Uthagrimnoshaarl was a special kind of undead, a dracolich.[2]


Around 1370 DR, the Cult of the Dragon approached him with a proposal of an alliance: The Cult's wizards would release the Dire Dragon from his role of guardian if, in exchange, he would permit the Cult to build a fortress inside the Well.[2]

He annihilated the village of Ladydove, with only Yajandra Dlathaero's house surviving.[4]
