Nafia is an enormous blue female thunder dragon, described as 10 times larger than Chalize, who confronts Kendra and Seth. They are saved by Gavin, who convinces Nafia to spare them. She appears to the team later in human form, calling herself "Nyssa", offering assistance, but they decline her help. Agad reveals that she is the mother of Chalize whose egg was stolen from Nafia by Patton Burgess (to replace the guardian of the Chronometer at Lost Mesa) because the dragon fell into a habit of eating her own young. She had met Navarog centuries before the time period of the book.
