Tome of the Five True Gods, sometimes called the Scroll of the Five True Gods, is a book written by the first humans to walk upon Tyria, who recorded a portion of the Six Gods' knowledge.[1] Within the tome is a section dedicated to the Elder Dragons. Due to its age, it is written in an ancient dialect of Old Krytan and is heavily damaged, making translation difficult.[2] Among the damaged portions is the name of the deep sea Elder Dragon, revealing only that its name begins with the letter S.[3] It is currently being kept in the Durmand Priory's Special Collections.

    Ogden Stonehealer: Much of what we know about them comes from a document written by the first humans to walk the face of Tyria: the Scroll of the Five True Gods.
    Ogden Stonehealer: It is written in an ancient dialect, therefore it is subject to interpretation.
    Ogden Stonehealer: In it, the gods revealed the names of the Elder Dragons: Mordremoth, Kralkatorrik, Jormag, Zhaitan, and Primordus.
    Ogden Stonehealer: There is one other name listed, but it is illegible, lost to time. I suspect this is the deep-sea dragon.

    Magister Ela Makkay: We believe there is another deep in the oceans, but its entry in the Scroll of the Five True Gods is partially missing.
    Magister Ela Makkay: The scroll, written in ancient times, has a section dedicated to the Elder Dragons, but it came to us in bad shape.
    Magister Ela Makkay: It is written in an ancient form of old Krytan. We're still attempting to decipher the damaged portions.

    <Character name>: What about the letters? Are those...
    Historian: Yeah. First letter of each dragon's name.
    <Character name>: Who's S?
    Historian: Don't know any more than that. That was all they could get from the Tome of the Five True Gods. It's too damaged. Some of these scholars in here would kill to know the full name of that dragon.
    <Character name>: Is it the deep sea dragon?
    Historian: They think so. Me, I think they probably got the letter wrong, but who knows. They're still translating and trying to fill in lost pieces.
