Earthroot is a dragon from distant Kitay. Legend is, that he came to Barsaive after losing the battle with White Lotus, about three hundred years after the death of the All-Wise. This dragon took a liking to secret, underground places, which reflects his love for darkness and hidden life. Since then, he has been seen on the surface only three times. His long, wingless body is covered with pearly scales, shimmering with a multitude of shades, and black eyes seem to be like the abyss of one of the underground lakes in which he loves to hide.
Earth Root is extremely intelligent, works out of hiding and often speaks with riddles.
