Here's a thought...
(WARNING - TERRA ICOGNITA MOMENT COMING ON...) We love ya, Terra!
In being their enemy, Orlanth is acting as the Dragon's greatest friend.
Think about the Utuma myths. Did not Orlanth assist Shakarazeel and Aroka in attaining the liberation of Utuma? Was not facing such a mighty god as them suicide? In defeating Shakarazeel and making it a part of him (Orlanth's Ring, the 7 Orange Stars), Orlanth is simultaneously their best ally and destroyer. Material existance is most often a hindrance for Dragons and Dragonewts, and the King Storm has at various points liberated them to attain ultimate liberation. At times, worshippers of Orlanth who were not ready have discovered this secret Dragon wisdom of Orlanth (IE - The EWF), but King Storm has taken away this knowledge from those who have abused it, fixing what mistakes he has made in his own inimitable fashion (IE - Arangorf vs Alakoring.) The many defeats at the hands of the Red Moon were obviosly forseen and *planned*... Orlanth granted Sedenya that which she needed most upon her Utuma - cosmic liberation, as Orlanth himself experienced in the Lightbringer's quest. Old King Storm is far craftier and wiser than he may seem.
Orlanth liberated and released, through Argrath, Sedenya's Inner, Invisble Dragon, and thus Liberated her, cleansing her of the falseness of Chaos and duality.
