Smaug is said to be the last great Fire Drake to exist in Tolkien's Middle-Earth and a treacherous dragon who had laid waste to Lonely Mountain and the surrounding areas laying his claim upon the land.

He was drawn by the great wealth collected by the dwarves in Lonely Mountain which was his current place of residence till he was drawn out by Bilbo and was eventually killed by Bard the Bowman. He is known to have psychopathic skills other than just fire-breathing and flying and is very violent and sadistic.

To seek vengeance upon being woken up from hibernation, Smaug flies to the nearby town named Lake town and lays waste to it. However, a man named Bard the Bowman shoots him in his weakest point killing him instantly, meaning his last words in 'The Hobbit' are "I am fire. I am death.", rendering Bard as the future king. Here is a full list of Smaug quotes both by him and about him that will chill your nerves. May you never fall short of Smaug quotes.
