Teriarch, real name Terrium, is an ancient Fire-type Brass Dragon that lives in a cave located in the High Passes.

Appearance[]

In his true form Teriarch has a height similar to that of an Airbus A380.[6] He looks like a dragon depicted in Western culture, but instead of horns on his head he has a luminous mane that looks like molten bronze turned into some kind of living hair. His scales are deep golden bronze that glow and glint in the light.[7] His eyes have mismatched colors of heliotrope and cerulean, with celestial lights shimmering within the moving pupils.[8]

In his Human form he looks like a 6+ ft tall elderly half-elf, with a lined face and a beard like an elderly statesman,[9] with a pair of eyes that are both heliotrope and cerulean, pointed ears and a lustrous mane of silver-gray hair. His body looks like a an Olympian athlete past his prime but with the same body, with a moderate olive brown whitened skin. His clothing looks like magical robes of shining silk, like it was the most expensive stuff, on par with Lady Magnolia’s attire.[10]

Personality[]

Seal of Teriarch, inspired by Ryoka's banner by Raoul Solomon.

Teriarch is arrogant and highly presumptuous, which are personality traits that appear to be shared by most Dragons shown in the story. He is also incredibly world-weary, having lived for millennia, which has caused him to become a recluse in the present-day. While Teriarch exudes the countenance of a grumpy old man, deep down he is kind-hearted with a particular soft spot for children (which, from his perspective, is almost everybody). Highly-intelligent, Teriarch is shown to enjoy teaching others, though he can be unintentionally patronizing.

Background[]

Teriarch is ancient beyond measure. All numbers assigned to his age are estimates. All we know is that he's so old that even the most impassioned arguments now fail to move him from his isolation - not because he's heartless, but because he's heard it all before, responded before, and seen the results of his efforts crumble to dust every single time.[11]

Teriarch knew the fourth incarnation of the Quarass - while they were sworn enemies, they struck a deal to work together. At some point, he was the protector of the Empire of Iltanus once, feared by the Walled Cities who held fast against the Empire. Teriarch protected the Harpies until their last city fell.[11]

Teriarch has known Magnolia Reinhart since she was a girl, that is since thirty or forty years in the past if his memory serves him correctly. They didn't lose contact, but she managed to hide the secret of his existence from the world.[12]

In the past, Teriarch occasionally appeared using a fake persona, for example as Grand Mage Eldavin, and used to make quite an impression each time.[13]

Chronology[]

Powers and Abilities[]

Teriarch is a magic user of superlative skill, with power and knowledge superior to an [Archmage]. Unlike the modern mages of Wistram, Teriarch does not categorize spells into tiers, and even seems to find the idea to be silly.[6] The most powerful magic he has been seen to cast was equivalent to roughly tier 6-7, but it is highly likely that that is not his limit.[14]

Teriarch is capable of creating a projection that he can control over a distance. However, the greater the distance between his real body and said projection is, the less powerful spells he can cast with it. For instance, he was limited to Tier 2 spells when he was fighting at an area that is located somewhere between Celum and Liscor.[15]
