We all know who's umlaut working for. A dragon wich has the intellect to plan how to conquer the world. A dragon wich excels at mind control. But lacks of power to dominate everything. We talk about spectral drake. Umlaut is just being accused of doing all the bad things that happen everywhere in the game, while the work is really done by the elite of the spectral terrorist group, formed by spectral drake, faith healer (he helps convince everyone about umlaut's fault on everything) and doppleganger, for those things they need to do without anyone knowing it's them.
Once we defeat umlaut, these 3 will be discovered as the real evil in the world and will show their true powers. And umlaut will gift us with a dragon egg to everyone who defeats him (as in medal rewards, for everyone's first umlaut defeat), to help us fight Spectral and his team.
We will teach the dragon any 5 skills we want and train him to have the base stat growth we want, and the gear will be something randomized wich helps keeping balance with him.
Wow, i better don't let my imagination fly again
