(Not to be confused with Jerboa II, her daughter, who appears in Darkness of Dragons.)

Jerboa was an animus SandWing, who lived during Darkstalker's time. Jerboa is also the creator of the Eye Of Onyx and more various SandWing treasures. She was said to have fled the SandWing court and she was either killed or she became a fugitive. Jerboa is the mother Jerboa II, who happens to be the only other known SandWing animus.

Biography Edit

Pre-Series Edit

Jerboa was commisioned by a unknown SandWing queen (Possibly Queen Scorpion) to create the Eye of Onyx, a enchanted necklace to keep the queen in power forever. Instead, Jerboa enchanted the Eye to choose rightful Queens regardless of the royal bloodline and kill those who are not worthy. This is presumably the reason Jerboa was forced to flee her tribe and become a fugitive to the law. While in hiding, Jerboa probably had her daughter

Darkstalker (Legends) Edit

While reading Prince Arctic's mind, Darkstalker hears him think breifly of Jerboa when he lists all of the known animus dragons of Pyrrhia.

The Brightest Night Edit

Jerboa is mentioned a couple times throughout The Brightest Night as the creator of the Eye of Onyx.

Darkness of Dragons Edit

Although not mentioned by name, Queen Thorn tells Qibli that she feels that the Eye Of Onyx was created by a dragon with “wisdom and goodness in her heart.”

Later, in the epilogue, Jerboa II introduces herself as not the original Jerboa, but her daughter.

Personality Edit

From what little information is given about Jerboa, not much can be said about her personality. However, in Darkness of Dragons Thorn mentions that she feels as if the Eye of Onyx (most likely created by Jerboa) was created by an animus with "wisdom and goodness in her heart". This implies that Jerboa was most likely a much quieter and sweeter SandWing.

Along with this, Jerboa seems to be protective and motherly, as she cast a spell on her daughter that ensured nothing could ever harm her.

Jerboa is also hinted to be extremely clever due to the way she presumably made the Eye of Onyx function. She also seems to care deeply about her tribe and their future for the same reasoning.

Trivia Edit
