The green dragon Merithra of the Dream is a child of the Dragon Aspect Ysera and was a major figure of the War of the Shifting Sands. She was taken captive in the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj under a mortal, night elf form by the qiraji, along with the red Caelestrasz and the blue Arygos. Arygos and her offered to craft weapons in exchange for and three Elementium Ores.
War of the Shifting Sands
During the War of the Shifting Sands, the dragon Anachronos enlisted the bronze dragonflight and fought alongside the night elves against the qiraji. The sheer numbers of qiraji and silithid proved overwhelming however, and so Anachronos called upon the progeny of the other dragonflights, including Merithra of the green dragonflight.
Along with Caelestrasz and Arygos, she helped push the qiraji back into Ahn'Qiraj which allowed Anachronos, Fandral Staghelm, and the night elves to create a magical barrier to seal the fortress. The three dragons and their companions flew headlong into the insect city as the Scarab Wall was erected behind them, leaving them imprisoned within the walls of C'Thun.
With the betrayal and death of Arygos, and the death of Caelestrasz in the Bastion of Twilight, Merithra became the last one alive of the three former captives.
Dawn of the Aspects
She joined her mother at a meeting of the Wyrmrest Accord following Deathwing's defeat. The Emerald Nightmare within the Rift of Aln had begun acting up and seemed to be seeking a new Nightmare Lord. Ysera told Merithra that protection of the Emerald Dream now fell upon the druids.
Heroes of the Brood? C'Thun must be banished! We can assist you, mortal!
Succumb to the endless dream, little ones. Let it consume you!
