"Meyye! Pahlok joorre! Him hinde pah liiv! Zu'u hin daan!"
- A quote from Drakuljonak himself, spoken to the heroes of old who challenged him and ended his reign. Translation: Fools! Arrogant mortals! Your hopes all wither! I am your doom.
Drakuljonak, also known as Deathwing, The World Eater, or the Great Dragon, is an ancient and immortal dragon that once ruled over Heraklon, a planet in the realm of Io in Araboth. He was created by the ancient deity, Sargeras, in order to keep dominion over Heraklon and ensure that it remained in perpetual chaos and ruin. In Heraklon's ancient history, he and his Gorian Armies took over the moon and ruled over it for thousands of years. He was challenged by mortal rebels and heroes who tried to end his tyranny, and free the world. Through their efforts, he and the Gorian Empire was defeated. Deathwing himself was banished to a giant volcano named Mount Eblis.
Millenia later, a powerful dragon from Atmah named Malefor entered Io, specifically Heraklon. He eventually learned of the ancient dragon called Deathwing, and sought to release him from his volcano prison, for his own purposes. Eventually, after much hunting and rituals, Malefor freed Deathwing, expecting to have the ancient beast bow down to his liberator. However, Deathwing's vast wisdom and incredible power quickly put him in a position above the younger, punier dragon. Soon, Deathwing became Malefor's master, and once again called forth the Gorian Empire to do his bidding. He now seeks to take over the world, destroy it, and do the same for the entire universe.
