Seven Kingdoms: Seowyn's Crossing
Kobolds are a diminuative, reptilian race distantly related to both Dragons and Dragonborn. They were created by Tiamat to be creatures that would be able to move in the shadows and do the Dark Lady’s bidding. Dragonborn despise the suggestion that there are any connections between their races.
Kobolds make up for their lack of size, strength, and actual intelligence through being vicious and cunning. They are spiteful litlte creatures who covet and envy what more powerful races have. They often find themselves pressed into service by more powerful creatures, especially evil dragons, whom they both revere and despise.
