Scales of the Empire
Often seen as aloof and uncaring, Baazalk is the consummate magical researcher among the Dragonlords. He offered to reign over the province of Bastein because he felt it was sufficiently far from the capital for him to focus on the development of newer and stranger magical experiments. Much to his surprise, many magically inclined citizenry followed and established settlements around his tower. His surprise was short-lived, however, and he returned to his usual studies. Most day-to-day duties are relegated to his exarch, giving Baazalk more time for academia.
