Torina Barker makes her first appearance in Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary, Kendra's abductor. She reveals herself as a Lectoblix, who absorbes the youth of others with a bite. She is part of the Society of the Evening Star. When Kendra first sees her she looks in her early 50's, but during her incarceration she witnesses her in the act of draining the youth from a new victim, and allows Kendra to flatter her on her new appearance. She holds Kendra at her lair until the Sphinx takes custody of her. She killed Roon Osricson and Civia; and helped to kill Mark. She is killed when she tries to suck the youth out of Bracken.
