An ex-Dragonlord who entered the Jhereg upon exile from his original House. Kragar is a business agent for Mario and formerly Vladimir Taltos's right-hand operative (though a proper title for his former position was never truly established). He currently owns a considerable portion of Vladimir's former territory since his boss left the Jhereg.
He stands seven feet tall (average Dragaeran height), has medium straight light brown hair on a thin and angular face and generally nothing to distinguish his appearance from an average Dragaeran. Although his sharp facial features match those of a Dragon it is remarkably difficult for one to recognize this upon passive observation. All people tend to fail to notice his presence and he tends not to alert them. He is very frequently ignored, and sometimes sat upon and teleported accidentally. He claims to be naturally sneaky. Despite this, Kragar has never engaged in "work".
During his time in the House of the Dragon, Kragar met Morrolan e'Drien, although the circumstances surrounding this encounter are mysterious (Kragar is shown once to express a snide attitude to his pretentiousness). Kragar exile from House Dragon was self-explained as 'his orders on the battlefield recieving no attention from soldiers' presumably due to them failing to hear them owing to his natural sneakiness, thus leading to his banishment from the House. Unlike a typical Dragon, Kragar did not wish to return to House Dragon - his attitude towards them generally matches that of a Jhereg.
His career in the Jhereg began as an enforcer for Nielar upon the condition that he would never have to give orders. His duties included debt collection and bouncer duty. It was around this time that Kragar also began acting as a business agent for Mario, which, by the time of Dzur he had been doing for around ninety years - possibly ever since his expulsion from the House of Dragon. A couple of years later Kragar met Vladimir Taltos, who recently entered the Jhereg Organization, as part of a debt collection operation where they cooperatively threatened and beat an Orca.
During this period, Nielar had been working for a boss named Welok who mysteriously disappeared. His position was taken by an ineffective boss called 'Tagichatn' whose weakness was first exploited by another high-up named Laris who ran his own organization within Tagichatn's, then Vladimir Taltos who assassinated him and took over what was left of it. Vladimir recruited Kragar to help maintain his property among other of his acquaintances. Kragar's work involved delving into unspecified sources to find out information, usually biographical or geographical, and is usually quite successful and quick. He shows unusual loyalty for a Jhereg, and both have saved each other's lives enough times to rely on each other.
Vladimir is exiled from the Organization after messing with figures in the Jhereg Council and generally working against their interests. He chose Kragar to inherit all of his territory except South Adrilankha (which Cawti was given). Kragar overcame his near invisibility by writing a lot of notes around his office. He hired a new secretary named Yenth after Vladimir's former secretary betrayed him.
Also around this time Kragar starts to show the Dragonlord side of himself more than before - Dragonlords are known for being heading towards opposition, including (perhaps especially) threats against their life. Kragar decides to help Vladimir in his anti-Organization plans despite the passive threat to his position.
