Padael, Dragon of the Vashnar Peaks, also known as Argent Beast of the Lost Light, was a mighty dragon who was said to claim dominion of the Vashnar Mountains in the Age of Myth. One of the eldest of lesser dragons of old, he had eyes that "blazed of blue fire" and "breath of jagged thunder." Ledo, eldest of the Offspring, fought Padael in the mountains above the Aalen Forest for several days before he cleaved his wings and struck the great serpent down. Ledo's victory over the tarnished silver was a pyrrhic one: as Padael fell he dragged Ledo down with him into a lava lake where they both perished. The memory of the battle between man and dragon survives in the oral folklore of the Aalen Tsol'aa.
