NiThonius was rusty-colored dragon living before the Age of Fire as Upholder of Bant.

He was at first the dragon in charge of fending off the Ghi men's assault, before the arrival of the SiDrakkon's expedition. He was fond of his subjects and reluctant to prolong the fighting, pushing for a peaceful solution whenever he can.

He had twelve horns, and kept strips of cloth running from them and the crest, all tied to an ivory tusk piercing his nostrils.

His clutchwinner (and his mate) had took residence in Bant, but were both killed in the northern region of the country during the early stage of the War in Bant.

He survived the Dragon-riders Wars and after RuGaard became Tyr, he remained in Bant as Upholder.
