Arleesh is a female great feathered serpent, who first made herself known publicly circa 2049. She is young by dragon standards, and more active in mortal affairs than Mujaji. Arleesh has devoted herself to protecting the mortal races from Awakened threats of which they are still unaware and unprepaired for.
Arleesh made one of her more prominent appearances in the Sixth World when she worked with a shadowrunning team in 2051 to destroy an ancient artifact. This artifact acted as a rating 10 Power Focus, but took a toll on the health and sanity of its user. Arleesh consumed the focus, destroying it. Her activities appear to be piecemeal, undertaking personal quests to address specific Awakened threats instead of establishing a power base. While she shows respect for draconic gatherings and contemporaries, she is idealistic and will speak her mind. Her willingness to act with young races means she is one of the dragons a runner may well encounter if they are involved with some ancient evil or artifact.
Arleesh was one of the three great dragons that attacked Alamais in early spring 2075 in GeMiTo with a small army of shadowrunners, mercenaries and lesser dracoforms, to finish him and end his reign of terror. (The two other great dragons were Lofwyr himself and the great eastern dragon Lung).
