The Dragon emperors are more like forces of nature than something like Vonderam, who's more like a conniving greek god. (manipulates mortals, has 'alter egos' that have different abilities). Three of the dragon emps slumber when not awakened by the threats to Lavato, only Retear stays awake all the time... er, although his true power sleeps and he's a bit smaller.
