Dhamon Saga, The
Kang is a male bozak draconian in the Dragonlance book series. He is the Commander of the First Dragonarmy Bridging Company, the default mayor of a small draconian village in the Kharolis Mountains in a remote valley shared by the dwarven town of Celebundin, and later the Governor of the city of Teyr, the free homeland of the Draconians after the Chaos War.
Kang is a bozak draconian, meaning that he was hatched from the egg of a bronze dragon, corrupted in the "Corruption Ritual" by Dracart of the Black Robes, Wyrllish of Takhisis, and Harkiel the red dragon under the city of Sanction. As a bozak, Kang was highly skilled in the use of magic. After the Chaos War, he lost his ability to cast spells and believed the same happened to other draconians. He found out later that this was not the case, but is still unable to cast spells himself.
Like most draconians, Kang loves dwarf spirits, is skilled in war, and is often slow in realizing many concepts. However, unlike many draconians, he is compassionate, loyal, and seeks only the safety of his friends and race. Many of his properties are drawn from his bozak heritage, as many bozak draconians are good leaders. Kang keeps a disciplined, yet amiable rule, and eventually relinquishes control of his regiment to his Subcommander, a sivak draconian named Slith who had shared many of Kang's adventures, back to the time of the Catapulted Minotaur .
Like other draconians, Kang and his regiment served in the War of the Lance under Takhisis. After the war, Kang foresaw that the draconians who continued thievery and murder would be hunted down by the victorious forces of good, and decided to take his company deep into the wilderness of the Kharolis Mountains of southwestern Krynn to protect himself and his comrades. They eventually settled in a small valley under Mount Celebundin, and enjoyed a peaceful existence for several decades, with minor back and forth skirmishes and raids by the Dwarven town of Celebundin to the north.
During the Chaos War, Kang learned from the dwarf Selquist of the presence of female draconian eggs deep within the lost mines of the great Dwarven City of Thorbardin, and led his company there to claim them in the hopes of giving the previously exclusively male draconian race the ability to reproduce . With the new need of protecting the future of his race, Kang sought a safe haven, and thus headed for the abandoned Dwarven city of Teyr on the cost of the Blood Sea. However, his forces were hindered during the journey by repeated attacks of goblins hired by the Dark Knights.
During one of these battles, Kang's regiment was joined by a much larger force of draconians under the command of the aurak draconian General Maranta. Though both Kang and Maranta wanted to continue the draconian race, their goals were very different. Maranta was most interested in continuing his own power, and used a powerful artifact called The Heart of Dracart to make inferior clones of existing male draconians. Kang's regiment was almost destroyed, until Kang killed Maranta and defeated the goblins, and led the combined draconian forces to the city of Teyr .
Kang is the main character of several short stories, including "The First Dragonarmy Bridging Company", "The First Dragonarmy Engineer's Secret Weapon", and "To Teach the Righteous the Right". Kang also is present in several novels, including minor roles in the wicker dragon incident in "Dragons of Autumn Twilight" and "Dragons of a Vanished Moon". Subcommander Slith also has a cameo role in "Dragons of the Highlord Skies". Two novels, "The Doom Brigade" and "Draconian Measures", focus on Kang and his regiment during and after the Chaos War+
