In Darkness of Dragons, he is said to be "behaving like a renegade of the Scorpion Den when it came to things like dress code or showing up for guard duty on time," assuming that no one would ever get mad at him for it because he'd nearly died many times to save the Outclaws. Qibli notes that this is mostly true. Parch is carefree but also brave and a little reckless.
Parch was very shy as a young dragonet but seems to have grown out of it.
The Jade Mountain Prophecy
Parch is one of the two guards at Queen Thorn's stronghold when Qibli arrives there with Cobra, Ostrich, and Winter. Qibli says that he has to see Thorn, and Tawny, the other guard on duty, is reluctant while Parch states he can do so without any trouble. Eventually, they allow Qibli to go, and Qibli tells the others to wait for him by the Oasis monument.
