Glaurung is said to have created all of the other members of the Dragon Pantheon after his only sibling Vlaera would become truly evil, and in this darkness would be opposed by Glaurung who would hatch the Dragonoph Pantheon.
At every temple of the Dragonoph religion there is a predermined fact that Glaurung will be behind the priest, and thus watching over all those who are believers. In these depictions Glaurung is represented by a truly massive white Dragon that is more massive then any imagineable dragon. Glaurung is also said by the church to have laid the eggs that hatched all of the other Dragons of the Pantheon and for this reason he is always represented by being surrounding beneath him by different eggs usually matching the number in the Pantheon.

Dragonoph first became a religion following the supposed vision held by the prophet of the religion in the form of Ysgramor of whom was fleeing the lands of north far before the Great Migration. During his travelling southward he found himself near death, and just as he nearly died he is said to of been saved by Glaurung. Glaurung would take him to a magical land far into the sky where he would nurse Ysgramor back to health and eventually tell him the story of how the world begin. He told Ysgramor the tale of how the Dragons were the first to span the skies and it was the dragons that controlled the many elements of life and death. From this Ysgramor believed that the Dragons were the gods of the world, and that Glaurung was God himself. Returning to the Earth after being healed he would spread the religion in the lands of Westros, and then further into the Valley of Lucerne where he would build a great staircase in the mountains that led to a great temple called High Hrothgar.
