In 1454, a female blue dragon named Staticikana and a male red dragon named Rubicon met on the slopes of Tîrbalzôn. At first, the beasts were at odds with each other, each fearing the greed of the other. In time, both became threatened by Jara Hordes, so they joined forces, and after many battles together, a friendship developed, one that soon turned to love.

Over the passing centuries their power steadily grew. The dragons were a cunning pair; never did they overtly threaten the Khazarkar Empire, to the east, or the Orchish Empire in the south.

As the wyrms grew older, agents of Vith Alok, led by Drog'paagol, offered the pair an eternal existence, one unfettered with age, sleep, or food. Thus the great wyrms would be able to focus on what is important, magic, power, and wealth. The pair took Vith Alok's offers, giving up their life energy for negative energy, becoming dragon liches.

In addition to gaining the formidable powers of being a dracolich, the couple suffered a bit of insanity, proclaiming themselves king and queen. They slew the fire giant King Sootsmear and took his lands and his fortress. They proclaimed that all subjects as far as they could fly in one day must serve the crown and pay taxes. They were generally called the Court of Fire Lightning, but formerly proclaimed themselves the rulers of the Farengrath kingdom, a name in honor of Rubicon's father.

During the Core Offensive, the Khazarkar Empire bribed the Court of Fire Lightning. The Khazarkar Empire paid the King and Queen, each 1,000,000gps to slow or halt the advance of the Orchish Empire. The Orchish Empire, tired of the raiding and guerrilla tactics of Farengrath decided to put an end to this menace. They assaulted Sootsmear fortress many times; only sacking the place after crack commandos infiltrated the palace and slew the top leaders. The armies of the Orchish Empire left the place to the squabbling factions, and continued their march to the Core Sea.
