Mate: Ina'htas
Children: Akavian and Araxmarr/Callan Blackthorn, sons by Dawn Emberlight, a Silver and Calla Blackthorn, daughter by Ina'htas, a pure Black.

Background: Nargus was, at one time, the Black Dragon Emperor. His ruthless manner and heavy handed ways soon earned him a reputation for being the most bloodthirsty of the Blackthorn line, and ruled by fear and violence. His own lack of honor, however questionable Black Dragon honor can be, eventually cost him his military, most of his house guard, and eventually, his throne.

This loss of his own troops enabled a small group of people to slip Task Diamondwood into the Keep and catch him unguarded. His life was lost, his soul rent into three sections. One third of which found its way into the amulet he wore, another third into the amulet Task wore, which was originally Callan's *now Mira's* and the other third was caught in a dimensional void.

That last third was salvaged by his daughter, Calla and was restored to a fresh human body, an abducted drug addict from Terran. With his remembered draconic magic, Nargus is able to shift to his original dragon form, however, his mental state is incredibly unstable without the remaining two-thirds of his soul.
