To defeat the voice of darkness (Be’lal) in the final battle, the elves and the dragons combined their might. The dragons paid dearly and lost not only their leader, but many other of their brethren. Their most beloved, wisest, oldest, and most powerful leader Azazel traded his life for victory over the wicked demon. It was this among other things that led the Dragons to plot to control the other races of Corethandar. The elves also paid a price for the banishment of Be’lal. Their King, Lindir, perished in the final battle and the elves were left leaderless after the fight.
