The Necrosyrtes are a war-like faction of Dragonkin as opposed to the Dactyl, who started experimenting with offspring and withstand the curse of the Stone of Jas, retaining their sanity. The Necrosyrtes include all Dragonkin that have given into their urge to cause destruction and are often seen taking out their anger on False Users. The Necrosyrtes are most likely responsible for the Dragonkin Conflicts in the Fourth Age.
According to Fairy Aeryka, they also smithed dragon armour, known to them as Orikalkum, which is now distributed by the Consortium of Extra-Planar Merchandise Transferral Specialists.
- Necrosyrtes is a genus of vulture, a reference to the Dragonkin, since they used to be physically similar to vultures before their graphical update.
