Vvaraak was the black dragon who taught the first Gatekeepers and began the druidic tradition in western Khorvaire sixteen thousands of years ago, during the Age of Monsters. She was also known as the Scaled Apostate. The Seren druids call her the Ebon Mother.
Vvaraak was a black dragon who traveled to Khorvaire over 16,000 years ago to teach the orcs the secrets of druidic magic. She did so to halt a great disaster she had foreseen, presumably the Daelkyr War, the incursion of daelkyr and their aberration servants from Xoriat, the Realm of Madness. However, the threat she predicted may not have yet come to pass.
Vvaraak taught the orcs druidic magic over the course of a century, before departing to spread the Gatekeeper tradition around the rest of Eberron. She is said to have taught them the secrets of creating the first horrid animals. She may even have descended into the depths of Khyber to teach the Gatekeeper tradition to creatures such as the derro.
Vvaraak was a child of Eberron, the sovereign path of the draconic adherents of Thir who seek to be closer to nature. The dark aspect is recognizable to humanoids as the Devourer, the Sovereign of Wave and Whelm of the Dark Six. The light aspect is Arawai, the Sovereign of Life and Love of the Sovereign Host.
