Calegorax was a powerful and ancient dragon lord who led an alliance of evil Chromatic Dragons against the elves of Ectharë and the races of Metallic Dragons during the First Age.

At the Battle of Merizath, the evil dragons were defeated and Calegorax was slain. As he lay dying, Calegorax uttered a famous curse that no present or future elvish kingdom would ever prosper or survive on Corwyn. Most elves and many others believe that his curse came true.

Legend has it that the skull of Calegorax lies at the northern tip of the Grôn Chasm, in front of the infamous Dragonstone Bridge in Morgoth.

After his death, the soul of Calegorax was trapped in seven artifacts called the Dragonshards;

The Elder-Elves knew well the danger and power of these artifacts. Therefore, to keep them safe, the Ancient Elves scattered these seven relics into seven hidden crypts, spread across the continent of Corwyn.
