??? YK According to myth, there were once three great dragons that traversed the cosmos. These were the first dragons: Khyber, Siberys, and Eberron. They were the most powerful of all dragons.
They lived in harmony until one day, Khyber discovered a glowing hot ball, the Elemental Chaos. He wanted it for himself, and hated that the others might take it. This was the first instance of draconic hoarding.
Lying there, wrapped around the World, Khyber discovered the mysterious Prophecy. The evil Khyber fought the others to seize control of the Prophecy. Noble Siberys was torn to pieces and became the Dragon Above, a ring of glowing shards that circles the World.
Horrified by this act of brutality, Eberron wrapped herself around Khyber and bound him in her coils. Khyber became the Dragon Below, a monster-filled maze of caves that fills the planet.
