This article contains plot details about the recently released book, Darkness of Dragons. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.
Sirocco is a male SandWing mentioned in Moon Rising. He is one of Qibli's older siblings, the other being Rattlesnake, who often helped to bully and torment Qibli before he joined the Outclaws. Their mother is Cobra. Qibli sometimes thinks or dreams about Sirocco and Rattlesnake doing cruel things to him, such as when they threatened him with their barbed tails in exchange for a talonful of date palms. In Moon's vision and in Escaping Peril they are described as huge, bulky dragons wearing a medallion with a type of bird etched on it. Sirocco and Rattlesnake are working for Vulture.
Qibli notes that his family probably would have shoved him closer to the projectile fired at him rather than saved him like Winter did.
A group of dragons, most likely including Sirocco and Rattlesnake, terrified the SandWing tribe by setting off dragonflame cacti.
Sirocco is shown constantly at Rattlesnake's side. Rattlesnake comments that he is a meathead who gives their family a bad name. He and Rattlesnake are defeated by their mother and nearly killed before Qibli convinces her to spare them. Cobra states that she only has one dragonet and it's Qibli, disowning Sirocco and his sister, to trick Qibli.
Sirocco is shown to be clumsy and not very smart, in contrast to Qibli. Sirocco is very whiny and demanding, and very childlike. This annoys Rattlesnake, his sister, who is implied to be much smarter.
