Saguaro is a female SandWing guard who seems to be interested in overthrowing Thorn with Fierceteeth. She has a scar across her chest right above her heart, probably scarcely surviving an assassination attempt. She is apparently a schemer, and connected to "great secret plans". In Prisoners, she exchanged letters with Fierceteeth in the dungeon, who was trying to get Saguaro to help her overthrow Queen Glory, and let her and Strongwings out of prison.
Saguaro was a major character in Prisoners. She was the SandWing guard Fierceteeth wrote notes to, trying to convince her to free her. Saguaro is most likely a spy of some sort for Vulture's Talons of Power, as it was stated in the books that Fierceteeth saw her drawing maps of the dungeon and doing more suspicious actions that she could tell the other guards about, such as talking to thin air, possibly giving reports to Vulture at scheduled times using the Obsidian Mirror, and her actions were different from the other guards. Saguaro refuses to do anything with freeing Fierceteeth at first, but Fierceteeth later convinces her. At the end of Prisoners, Saguaro frees Fierceteeth and Strongwings, and they escape into the desert.
Fierceteeth, Strongwings, and a group of SandWings try to assassinate Queen Glory of the RainWings. Darkstalker, however, saves the queen and creates a prison for her to keep them in. Saguaro is most likely one of the SandWings Darkstalker captured.
- A saguaro is a giant cactus that can grow to 66 feet (20 meters) in height and whose branches are shaped like candle holders and is native to Mexico and the southwestern US. Its reddish-purple fruit can be used for food and drink.
- Fierceteeth remarked that Saguaro would stand in dark corners and whisper to someone who wasn't there, much like Onyx did.
- Saguaro never physically appears in Prisoners.
"Alright, NightWing, here's a blank scroll. Go ahead and try to convince me that you're a dragon who even deserves to live, let alone one I should waste my time on. I do enjoy being amused." -Prisoners, page 8
"Very well, you maddening NightWing. Your story has warmed my heart, or perhaps I just need you to go away and stop sliding incriminating notes under your door. So. Midnight tomorrow. Be ready." -Prisoners, page 32
