the Purple
Source: The Great Beyond, pg(s). 17

Messentrel the Purple is a crystal dragon who rules an "empire" of linked caverns on the elemental Plane of Earth.1 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 scamps2 and dwarves, by virtue of his half-dragon children who serve as their rulers.3 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 scamp settlements on the plane.4

  2. Paizo referred to elemental scamps as mephits until the publication of the Pathfinder Second Edition Bestiary, and began solely referring to them as scamps in Rage of Elements. See Bestiary pg. 150, Rage of Elements pg. 3, and Pathfinder Core Preview pgs. 2, 13.
