Xaphania, Daughter of Serafina, was a member of the Wandering Tribes before she was accepted as one of the Riders. Her Dragon is the purple-scaled Balthamos, and she wields the scimitar Edoc'sil (Unconquerable). Her manner is of the highest level of respect to all, while Balthamos is sullen and insulting. She is a master of archery, though her talent was frowned upon by the members of her tribe.
