Cereus has pale yellow scales.
Cereus is very fond of scavengers, especially Rose. She thinks they are adorable, and coos at them as if they were dragonets or pets. Cereus was described to be quite goofy and silly. She is also friendly, as she talked to Sky without knowing who he was or judging his odd color.
Rose, Ivy, and Leaf devise a plan that will result in Leaf seeing Wren again. Cereus is chosen to carry Leaf. Leaf climbs onto Cereus's back, while being invisible, as she does her rounds. Cereus is confused at why she can feel someone on her back but she can't see them, but Rose distracts her, and Cereus thinks nothing of it, instead lifting off to do her rounds. When they fly for a little while, Leaf and Cereus see Sky in the distance. Cereus turns around and makes to fly back to the SandWing stronghold, but Leaf digs his feet into her shoulder and attempts to turn her around. She hits him off with her tail, and he starts to fall, only to be saved by her once she sees him. Cereus lands and talks to Sky about scavengers for a little bit before flying off again to the SandWing stronghold, carrying Leaf back with her.
