When Mother Dark was just a Tiste Andii noblewoman, Draconus gifted her with his aspect, leading to her ascension. He and his siblings cursed Kallor to live forever and never ascend, and yet still suffer the ravages of time. At the same time, Kallor used the power of hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by the collapse of his empire to curse Draconus. The curse was that Draconus would be "[imprisoned] in a creation of his own making".
He was imprisoned within his own sword by Anomander Rake while his daughters looked on. At the death of Anomander Rake and the destruction of Dragnipur Draconus was released in Letheras, resulting in the decimation of the Barghast and Akrynnai armies.
Draconus carried his sword in a scabbard of midnight wood. He was walking into the east with Ublala Pung and Ralata. After leaving them, he sought out Kilmandaros and Sechul Lath seeking revenge upon them for unleashing Korabas.
We see a side of Draconus before the Forging of Dragnipur. It is revealed that the mother of his three daughters is in fact Olar Ethil, not Sheltatha Lore as previously thought.
