Messentrel the Purple is a crystal dragon who rules an "empire" of linked caverns on the elemental Plane of Earth. In common with most crystal dragons, he is incredibly vain about his crystalline scales (of flawless amethyst, in his case) but his subjects live relatively comfortable lives due to his protection.
He also holds sway over several nearby realms of earth mephits and dwarves, by virtue of his half-dragon children who serve as their rulers. One of his more recent acquisitions as a vassal state is the Voracious Domain of the Jeweled Demigod Empress Althrana, the most notable of the earth and salt mephit settlements on the plane.
