I wonder, how would be developped the personnality of that dragon? If it was able to speak, what would it says? What about its main traits?
I want to think beyond a flat simple "roar destroy everything, roar hate everything" and a more strategist and maniac aspect. Even pushing the aspect of feeling superior and strong.
I want to think about typical answers of essential questions to be the following:
"Don't be fooled by this snake of Jormag, only I, the true essence of destruction, volcanic power, raw force of earthquakes can shape the world. Did Jormag promised you anything? Yes, lies. I saw races reaching their apogee, and a moment later, fleeing like wurms."
"I Borrow my forces to the ones asking for it, only asking to fight in my name in return. But why corrupting livings when I can create an army of magmatic rocks puppets?"
"I can help you push back ice, can't promise you anything more."
Primordius seems to like giving special names to its lieutenants, one of the first occurence is the destroyer of world in sorrow embrace, but with drm, you have several others like destroyer of ironhammer line or of crystal fields.
It has specialized troops, soldiers, melters, harpies... without needing to use corpses to grow its army.
What if Primordus is so much confident in itself that he simply don't trust and like corrupting living forms? Cause basically, it has infinite supply of material for its army as long as there is lava and rocks around.
Also primordius is big, when I say big, it is bigger than kralkatorrik, real size kralkatorrik (kralkatorrik would be size of thunderhead map). Primordius head is the size of draconis mons, I let you imagine whole body. Even if you put ice spires, mega lit class lasers and place it under a rain of pact airship fires it would do nothing. I also doubt the dragon is enough stupid to put itself at the surface.
To return to the personality itself, I spoke about strategy. I think it is interesting sending some squads around to assault some little settlements and towns whereas brewing something bigger somewhere else. To make enough noise, of course some named lieutenant. Beyond that, what I'm interested to see is traps: Imagine an ettin, a devourer anything and boom it explode and you discover ton of crablings, an harpy being in fact a destroyer harpy, some under disguises looking like a basic npc. Lionguard, whatever.
Jormag strategy is to whisper, manipulate and make you think you need what it need, it seems to use races qualities to help it to succeed: using charr military structures and engineering... what if primordius is the opposite? Not caring of any race because its mindset is they are useless and that you can't do anything perfectly without doing it yourself? Instead of trying to corrupt, would be straight: helping? No? Die. And even further, what if its goal is the opposite of Jormag one: use races prowess and qualities to destroy them.
Think about quora sum and old underground stories: undrground was ovverun surely because it sends destroyers though asura gates and cutting energy supplies! Try to apply this to other races: easy to destroy charr artillery by coming from under and melting the vehicles and weapons. Humans, seraph or lionguard? Just distract. Norn? Ruining shrines and eliminating shamans. Primordus could develop specialized sniper minions, wasps or wurms to navigature more easily around. Now thinking of that, stone summit dwarves are those artillery support, and I'm surprised to haven't see them yet in drm.
Bug it does make sense! Send a spark and then when nobody here to defend send the big troops and artillery.
To sum up, because it starts to be long would see primordius to be the opposite of jormag in its behaviour: not seeking for help from races, not wanting to bother corrupt them, not corrupting living heavily, being straight in its dialogues, not lying, and finally returning races qualities against them.
Btw, how do we know lieutenants names? Are they mentionned in a book, does their growls understood by some races?
