From Canon:Takhisis:

This article is based on material by: 

Takhisis is the main goddess of evil and head of the Dark Pantheon in the Dragonlance campaign setting on the world of Krynn.

She is also called: Dragonqueen (among elves), Nilat the Corrupter (among the barbarians of the plains), Tamex the False Metal (among dwarves); Mai-tat (in Tarsis, She of Many Faces (among the people of Ergoth) Queen of Many, Colors and None (among the Knights of Solamnia), the Dark Queen, Erestem (in Taladas),[3] Tii'Mhut (in Istar), Lady Chaos (in Mithas), Mwarg (hobgoblin), the One God, the Dark Warrior, and Shadow Sorcerer. Some believe, such as original Dragonlance team member Jeff Grubb, that she's also Tiamat,[4] Goddess (or Queen) of evil dragons in many other Dungeons and Dragons campaign settings, but the two are separate entities according to Dragonlance creator Tracy Hickman[5] and others.[6]

Takhisis most often takes the form of a five-headed dragon, each head being the colour of one of the evil dragons (red, blue, green, black, and white).[5][7] She also often uses the form of a beautiful temptress, said to be so lovely that no man could resist her. She also has another form known as the Dark Warrior.

Sargonnas is Takhisis' consort, and together they have two children, Nuitari and Zeboim.[8]
