|Alias||The Dragon of the North|
|Book(s)||The World of Ice & Fire (mentioned)|
When Dhako approached the city of Ibbish to sack it, its inhabitants took to their ships and fled to Ib. Dhako put the city to the torch and named it Vaes Aresak, or City of Cowards. In his wroth, Dhako burned not only the abandoned city, but also much of the surrounding countryside. Thereafter he was known as the Dragon of the North.
The Braavosi adventurer Terrio Erastes was a guest of Khal Dhako when Ibbish was destroyed. He wrote in his chronicle Fire Upon the Grass that Dhako took great pride in being known as the Dragon of the North, but came to rue it when his khalasar was defeated in battle by that of Khal Temmo, who took the elder Dhako captive and fed him to the flames after cutting off his hands, feet, and genitals, and roasting them before his eyes, after first burning his wives and sons in the same manner.
