Ghariala is a poacher and master thief. She has amassed a fortune by killing dragons, raiding their nests for treasure and taking their eggs. She takes care of the eggs and hatches the resulting baby dragons for sale to wealthy individuals or to kill for their hides, teeth, claws, and any other parts that might be valuable.
