Tziporah was a carefree bird rider from the Kingdom of Red Grass, to the south of Crossport. She and her bird, Aderyn, fearlessly took people in and out of Westmorland, despite the warnings of more experienced bird riders. As they predicted, Tziporah and her mount were eventually attacked by dragons, and Aderyn was killed. Tziporah crashed into Westmorland, alone and injured. She was happened upon by [Nick], who bound her wounds and took her back to civilization. In exchange for this kindness, Tziporah agreed to lead [Nick] to Aurelia. Tziporah now lives in the Rookery alone, where she trades adventurers and begs for money, so that she might bring her beloved bird back to life.
