Avizandum was an Archdragon of the Sky and the most recent King of the Dragons, with his era beginning 300 years before the present.[1] He was the mate of Zubeia and the father of Azymondias. All other dragons accepted him as their king, and the elves, too, respected him as the most powerful creature in all of Xadia. Though no humans knew his true name, they fearfully called him "Thunder", for when he spoke, his voice shook the earth and sky.[2] He was killed by Harrow, who used dark magic provided by Viren to avenge the death of his wife Sarai.[3]

Appearance

Avizandum was a gigantic Storm Dragon with yellow eyes, light blue scales, dark blue underside, dark blue claws, and a mane of white hair that grew from his chin, neck, wings, and the tip of his tail. His head sported multiple protruding horns while both of his wings had a few holes and tears on their membranes. He also had spikes jutting out from each of his elbows as well as a row of them lining over the top of his tail.

Personality

Avizandum was respected by both the elves and other dragons, implying that he was a strong and revered leader. He stood guard at The Border that kept Xadia and the Human Kingdoms apart for centuries, patrolling it vigilantly from dawn until dusk.[4]

Avizandum seemed to be very intolerant towards humans, and protective of the citizens of Xadia, as he did not hesitate to kill members of Harrow's expedition party after they trespassed into Xadia and murdered an innocent Magma Titan to retrieve its heart.[5] He did, however, give Harrow and Viren a chance to leave Xadia unharmed when he was guarding his only egg.[3]

Despite his intimidating exterior, Avizandum loved both Zubeia and the unhatched Azymondias. Before he succumbed to his death via dark magic, Avizandum struggled to return to the Storm Spire and shed a tear knowing that he would never see his son grow up.[3]

Despite him being a revered and noble ruler, much like Harrow, Avizandum did not always make the best decisions, which led to several of his acts being questioned by other inhabitants of Xadia.[6]

Skills and Abilities

As an Archdragon of the Sky, Avizandum possessed numerous abilities that made him the most powerful creature in the world.

Sky Primal Connection

Avizandum possessed a vast connection to the Sky. He could summon lightning from the clouds, channel them through his body, and fire them from his mouth. It is said that when Avizandum spoke, his voice shook the earth and the sky. Avizandum could also transform his body into lightning, arriving instantaneously in a deafening crash, and utterly destroy anything in his path.[2] His eyes would occasionally glow blue when he performed his abilities.[5]

Magic Resistance

When Harrow made his move to kill Avizandum, Viren cast an immobilizing spell to stop the Archdragon from attacking. However, Avizandum was able to break free from the spell by channeling lightning through his body.[3]

Temperature Resistance

Avizandum seemed to be impervious to heat and lava, as he was able to guard the volcanic regions of The Border for centuries. He was also able to effortlessly break out from a wave of ice that was directed towards him by Viren with no signs of side effects after being partially and temporarily frozen.[5]

Physical Attributes

Thanks to his massive size, Avizandum was incredibly strong, as he made the ground shake just by stomping on it, and could easily send humans and horses flying with a single swat of his tail and his feet.[3] He was also able to spot enemies from thousands of miles away.[7]

Flight

Avizandum was able to fly fast enough to swiftly catch up to Viren and Sarai who were escaping him on horseback.[5]

Trivia

  • The name "Avizandum" is derived from the Latin word "Avizare", which means "to consider".[8]
  • Avizandum is responsible for imprisoning Aaravos, though where, how, and why he imprisoned the Startouch Elf have yet to be revealed.[3]
  • Aaron Ehasz confirmed that Avizandum's petrification turned everything inside of him into stone as well, meaning he cannot be revived.[9]
