While not a Council-appointed World Dragon, upon deciding to become evil, the individual known only as "The Dark Dragon" is the only dragon to have claimed the entire world as his domain. With the stated goal of destroying the Dragon Council, and seizing control of magical communities of the entire world as part of his plan to destroy humanity, he is arguably the only "true" World Dragon.
His current location is another dimension where he should remain trapped for the next thousand years.
