Following Tiamat's betrayal, Apsu gathered the souls of dragons killed during his son's rampage and gave them a second chance of life. He combined the forms of humanoids with the best aspects of dragonkind and let them return to the world. They are charged with stopping the schemes of chromatic dragons and guarding good and enlightened kingdoms. Despite this charge, the dragonborn are individuals and some have fallen to darkness and have become followers and servants of chromatic dragons, and worse.

Today, the Dragonborn race is dwindling. Their great cities that once existed were wiped out during the war with the empire of Bael Turath. The surviving dragonborn are few and far between, and generally exist in cities full of other races, where they are well respected for their brave efforts and sacrifices in the war.
