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 Queen 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.
In Darkness of Dragons, he is described as "behaving like a renegade of the Scorpion Den when it came to things like a dress code or showing up for guard duty on time" and assuming that no one would ever get mad at him for it because he'd nearly died several times to save the Outclaws, which Qibli notes is pretty much true. He's carefree, but is also shown to be brave and a little reckless.
- "Parch" means to become dry through intense heat; to be dried up, or having a lack of water.
- Parch was apparently very shy as a young dragonet. He seems to have grown out of it.
