The Quelmar Wiki
Sardior's appearance after his resurrection.
Domains Knowledge, Trickery
Aliases Abzu, The Ruby King, The Third Pillar

Sardior, also known as Abzu, is the Dragon Deity of knowledge and trickery, and the Ruby King of Gem Dragons. He was shattered sometime in Prehistory and nearly forgotten to the ages until being resurrected in 826 PR. He presides over his Ruby Court, a divine court of five seats each representing a different type of Gem Dragon.

Prehistory[edit | edit source]

Prehistoric Article

This article contains information said to be from Prehistoric Times. The validity of prehistoric content is dubious at best due to poor recordkeeping in the era, and should be considered unreliable, or at best: Legend.

Sardior was one of the Four Dragons who predated the formation of Quelmar by the Creator Gods.

It is undocumented how far back in Prehistory that Sardior was shattered.

BR Era[edit | edit source]

At the start of history, only two known fragments or remnants of Abzu's existence remained in the realm: the existence of Abzcar Canyon, and the many mysterious Existence Crystals scattered across Kiston.

PR Era[edit | edit source]

The crystals of Sardior began to draw new attention in the realm when they became the focus of an emerging force of people known as the Warforged. Somehow these shards of the lost god were essential to the creation of their souls and purpose, and as a result, these people were granted a natural Draconic Boon, having the ability to hide from other Dragons of the realm. Some theorize this could be Sardior's attempt from beyond to protect all the little bits of itself left in the realm.

Resurrection[edit | edit source]

Battle of Five Lights[edit | edit source]

The ceremony to resurrect Sardior was performed in 826 PR at the five peaks of the Northern Snowy Mountains under heavy assault from a shadow-corrupted Feredemius and his army of shadow monsters. Venaleth was the only member of the Prehistory court to reclaim his original seat. Echemus, the son of Eros, took the Crystal seat after his father failed to arrive to the ceremony in time. The other court seats faced similar complications. Tuschello was dead and his soul refused to be revived, Bleucorundum arrived late to the ceremony, and Smargarg (a young Emerald Dragon the team had enlisted) failed to arrive at all. This resulted in the final seats being filled by Durian and Delphi, Harbingers by blood, as well as Spinel, Harbinger by a Sapphire boon. The power of the ceremony destroyed their original bodies and reincarnated them as Gem Dragons.

Gem Artifacts[edit | edit source]

Performing the ceremony required each court member to attune to their respective gem artifact, consisting of the Amethyst Tome, Corundum Egg, Emerald Blade, Crystal Moonwell, and Topaz Astrolabe. Once all five artifacts had been synchronized, the final step of the ceremony required the wielder of the Emerald Blade to shatter the Corundum Egg, from which Sardior would finally be resurrected. The Amethyst Tome contained precise instructions for the ceremony to be properly carried out.

These artifacts were absorbed as part of the ceremony, and an item of close personal significance to each of the reborn court members became the new gem artifacts (for example, the Selune Splinter belonging to Durian's clan transformed into the Emerald Splinter).

Additionally, an Obsidian Artifact existed which could be molded into the shape of any of the other gem artifacts, embodying its essence and allowing it to serve as a stand-in during the ceremony. This attribute became vital when the Corundum Egg was briefly stolen by Feredemius.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Prehistory[edit | edit source]

The lair of Bleucorundum holds several tapestries portraying Sardior as he appeared in Prehistory and the Four Dragons creation myth.

PR Era[edit | edit source]

Sardior's appearance just after his resurrection was far different from the immense Dragon seen in Prehistory depictions, instead taking the shape of a slender ruby Dragonborn or wyrmling. This smaller form could be the result of the god being nearly forgotten to history for so long, meaning he would need to accrue new followers in order to build his power back to where it once was. It could also be due to his shattered Prehistory form remaining scattered amongst the planes in the form of Existence Crystals, meaning he could potentially gain more power by reabsorbing these fragments found throughout the realm or even by harvesting additional fragments from across the multiverse.
