King Tosh Raka
Race Dragon Gender Male
Resided in Ka Po' Tun

Tosh Raka was an emperor of Ka Po' Tun (or the "Tiger-Dragon Empire"), believed to have ruled some time towards the end of the Third Era. Through unknown methods, he purportedly transformed himself into a Dragon. Certain sources claim that this transformative process also turned him into a god,[UOL 1] with some sources going as far to state that he is the Akaviri avatar of Akatosh and possibly holds a grudge against his “mirror brother”.[UOL 2] Tosh Raka planned to conquer Akavir, and then set his sights on Tamriel.[1]

Notes[edit]

  • His name is similar to Akatosh, the Dragon God of Time. It is suggested to be wordplay on the terms "Aka" and "Tosh" both meaning Dragon,[1][UOL 2] but depending on usage or placement "Tosh" can alternatively mean "Tiger" or "Time",[2] a link to how dragons are synonymous with time.[UOL 2]
  • He is allegedly the largest dragon in the world.[1]
  • Toshrakhat was the dragon tongue name given to Ja'darri by Nahfahlaar.[3] It is unknown if the similarity to Tosh Raka is intended to be related.
