Maulkin's Tangle is the largest tangle of modern memory composing all remaining serpents and led by Maulkin. Numbering just over a hundred they became the final attempt to renew the dragon growth cycle that had been stunted by lack of memories from She Who Remembers and the blockages in the Rain Wild River. Of the tangle, less than one hundred manage to succesfully cocoon. Of the cocoons, less than fifty hatch. Of the fifty that hatches, only fifteen survive to maturity.
