Dragonlance Wiki

During the War of the Lance, the Dragonarmies were split into five great armies, representing each of the chromatic wyrms of Takhisis. Presiding over each of the armies was a Dragon Highlord, who oversaw all the military operations and command. The Highlords were only subservient to Ariakas (who was chief of the Highlords) and to Takhisis herself.

The Highlords were Dragonarmy officers who had risen through the ranks by whatever means necessary. Amongst their number were clerics, wizards, warriors and rogues. The Highlords were the generals of the armies and were served directly by the Highmasters, who were their lieutenants and aides.

At any one time, there were only five Dragon Highlords.
