Krakanrok the Black is the father of the Dragon Ogre race. He is an enormous Dragon Ogre Shaggoth the size of a mountain who is possessed of terrible power, yet is currently sleeping away the centuries.


Krakanrok the Black is the largest and oldest of all his kind. Quite literally the size of a mountain, Krakanrok slumbers upon the Chimera Plateau in the Chaos Wastes.[1a] 

During Archaon's quest for the Slayer of Kings, he ascended what he thought was a mountain, only to discover it was the sleeping form of the sire of the Dragon Ogres. Ograx the Great, the strongest of Archaon's champions, managed to lift a single one of Krakanrok's mighty claws, and Archaon pried free the sword. The thirteenth Everchosen then killed his own champion to sate the screaming of the Slayer of Kings, not willing to risk waking the ancient terror to claim the Daemonblade.[1a] 

It is said that during the End Times there will be an enormous thunderstorm which will cause Krakanrok to awaken.[1a]

Canon Conflict[]

It is unconfirmed whether Krakanrok is in any way related to Kalgalanos the Black. In addition to having the same title, both are Fathers of Dragons or Dragon Ogres, as well as being colossal in size, and currently sleeping deep beneath the earth.
