The Jade Mountain Prophecy
Arid appeared along with Pronghorn and Ostrich when Moon and Qibli came to talk to Onyx about the bomb in the history cave. When Moon read Arid's mind, it was discovered that they had previously supported Burn during the War of SandWing Succession, but now supports Thorn. They are highly respectful towards her or anyone involved with her, such as Qibli and Ostrich. Qibli was seen to be leader to them and the other SandWings in the group, except for Onyx.
Qibli asked Pronghorn about the last time he had seen Ostrich, and he mentioned that she, Arid, and himself had been carrying instruments to one of the upper caves to play.
- "Ostrich […] and Arid and I took some instruments to one of the upper caves to play with the sound of rain in the background."
- ― Pronghorn about Ostrich and Arid (Darkness of Dragons, page 35)
