— Ostrich to Quicksand about Blaze, Deserter

(Not to be confused with Ostrich, Six-Claws' daughter and student of Jade Mountain Academy.)

Ostrich was one of Queen Oasis's most trusted guards. She was also extremely loyal to the queen during her lifetime.




Ostrich was shown with her family, sharing the news of Oasis's new daughter, Blaze. She talked with her husband, Quicksand, about which heir Oasis would get rid of when she only allowed three at a time. They eventually settled on Oasis's sister, who was the heir that later disappears.

Many years later, Ostrich appeared again at the death of Queen Oasis. She showed extreme grief at the death of her queen.

She was revealed to have died during the War of SandWing Succession after serving on Burn's side for an unknown amount of time.

"Did you hear? […] Another princess hatched today. The queen is calling her Blaze."
― about Blaze (Deserter)

"Her Majesty has always said she'd allow three heirs, no more, […] So if she keeps Blaze, one of the others has to go."
― about Queen Oasis (Deserter)

"She's creepy, […] but the one Queen Oasis should get rid of is the other daughter, Blister. That dragon always looks like she's murdering you with her eyes. But it won't be either of them. It'll be the queen's sister, you'll see. She's much closer to challenging Her Majesty than the daughters are. It makes sense to dispose of her."
― about Princess Blister and Queen Oasis's sister (Deserter)

"That's absolutely right, dear, […] Don't worry, I'm sure she'll be queen for a long while yet. Although whoever comes after her, we'll be loyal to her, too."
― about Queen Oasis (Deserter)
