Many years ago, the foolish sorcerer Mazok the Muddled came into possession of a Dragon Egg. At the same time, Gallowmere was suffering under a terrible famine, and Mazok had been ordered by his king to seek out a magical solution. 'If only the kingdom's scrawny chickens could lay eggs the size of a dragon egg', thought Mazok, and he set about applying his questionable skills to transform the egg.
Several days later the kingdom had been saved! The hatched chicken-dragon - or Jabberwocky as it came to be known - possessed the ferocity of a dragon and the dim wit of a chicken. It rampaged through the kingdom on a murderous spree and killed so many that even the meagre harvest was enough to sustain the survivors (as they mourned their loved ones).
In 1286, one day before the Battle of Gallowmere, the Jabberwocky attacks King Peregrin's Castle and Gallows Town. However, Dan manages to chop its head off using Dirk Steadfast's Magic Sword, ending the attack.
In 1386, Dan encounters the Jabberwocky at the Mystic Maidens after escaping from the Haunted Ruins. The Jabberwocky then chases Dan through The Silver Woods until Dan is cornered at a cliff. Just as the Jabberwocky is about to reach him, Dan is saved by a vulture. The Jabberwocky plummets over the cliff edge, its fate unknown.
