Sanctum Guardian Xerestrasza is a red dragonflight dragon (in high elf form) that can be found in the Ruby Sanctum. Baltharus the Warborn, one of the three mini-bosses, is attempting to get through the barrier she has created and is hiding inside of. She is one of the very few survivors after the attack by the black dragonflight.
