"Nightscale" (real name: Kaioxysavramvrosnero) is an adult black dragon who dwelt on the bottom floor of Khundrukar, known as the Black Lake. The Silver Company learned of her existence while dwelling amidst the duergar, and thus they had ample time to prepare. Despite this, she still gave them considerable difficulty, but eventually the Silver Company won the day and claimed Nightscale's hoard for themselves.

Though her past is unknown to most, Nightscale had allegedly been an ally of the drow of Menzoberranzan and was intrigued by their dark machinations. Her favorite instrument was the lyre, though she could not play one herself. She enjoyed reading and spellcraft, and most of her books and scrolls were magically treated to be waterproof. Nightscale was an excellent swimmer.

Nightscale was killed by the Silver Company in 1374 DR.
