Dragon Ogre Shaggoth

Shaggoths are the oldest and largest of the Dragon Ogres. [3a]

Older than the Elves, the elder Shaggoths reach titantic size and Krakanrok the Black is said to be the size of a mountain. Despite their pact with the Dark Gods, they will not fight for Daemons, seeking to preserve what is left of their souls. [3a]

History

It was these self-same creatures that made their dark pact with the Chaos Gods eons ago. Only the loudest and fiercest of thunderstorms can wake a Shaggoth from his slumber in the mountains. Provided they continue to bathe in lightning, Dragon Ogres continue to grow in size and power throughout their lives. There is no real limit to how massive one can become.[2][3a]

Quotes

Shaggoth! cried one of Malekith's soldiers, and the prince knew it to be true. The oldest legends of the dragons spoke of such creatures, but Malekith had considered them to be myths from before the rise of the elves; before even the coming of the Old Ones and the banishment of the elven gods. Cousins to the dragons who had ruled the world before the coming of the gods, the shaggoths had bartered their souls to Chaos long before the Dark Gods had arisen to claim this world. If the dragons were to be believed, they had warred with the shaggoths for an eternity until finally the dragons had triumphed and driven their foes into hiding.
