"I want a ruby inna middle of my forehead! Can you do that?"
— Sirocco to Ostrich, Darkness of Dragons

Sirocco is a male SandWing who was introduced in Darkness of Dragons. His last known location was the Scorpion Den, and he is a member of the Talons of Power.


Sirocco is hulking,[1] large[2] and burly.[3] As a Talon of Power, he wears a black hood and golden medallion etched with the image of a vulture.[4] He has three dragon skull tattoos trailing down his neck and a rough, gravelly voice.[5] Either he or Rattlesnake look a lot like Qibli.[6]


Qibli once mentioned that Pyrrhia would be much better off if Sirocco was locked up where he could not hurt anyone.[7] He is empty-headed and clumsy.[8]


The Dragonet Prophecy

The Brightest Night

Qibli describes Rattlesnake and Sirocco as "a pair of dung-snorting hippo heads who'd rather stab [Qibli] with their tails than share so much as a fig with him" when Sunny asked Qibli if he had any siblings.

The Jade Mountain Prophecy

Moon Rising

Moonwatcher sees Rattlesnake and Sirocco frequently in Qibli's thoughts when using her mind-reading abilities. She also had a vision about Qibli fighting Rattlesnake and Sirocco, with an older male dragon (presumably Vulture) glowering at him, with Qibli shouting, "Where is she?" referring to Cobra, his mother.

Winter Turning

After Winter saves Qibli, Moon, and Kinkajou by breathing frostbreath at a flaming scavenger projectile, Qibli comments that his family probably would have stabbed him with the projectile themselves, rather than save him.

Escaping Peril

Two SandWings are shown buying dragonflame cacti from a SkyWing vendor. They were Sirocco and Rattlesnake collecting the cacti for Vulture.

Talons of Power

In the prologue, a group of dragons, likely including Sirocco and Rattlesnake, terrified the SandWing tribe by setting off dragonflame cacti in different places throughout the Sand Kingdom.

Darkness of Dragons

Sirocco and Rattlesnake appear at their and Qibli's old home to take him and Winter to Vulture. He is shown constantly at Rattlesnake's side; Rattlesnake comments that he is a meathead who gives their family a bad name due to his clumsiness and lack of brains. He and Rattlesnake are defeated by their mother and nearly killed before Qibli convinces her to spare them. Sirocco was bound and gagged, then left behind in Vulture's compound with his unconscious sister while they escaped.



Alongside Rattlesnake, Sirocco threw Qibli into walls, trapped his tail in doors, or buried him in sand.[9]
