Zuleika can typically be found lounging wherever there is a large amount of dragons; usually this means she is in the main chamber, perched on a dug-out cliff along the high walls. At other times she stalks the tunnels, surprising unaware dragons and proceeding to ask them deeply personal questions about things she shouldn't know of. Most are too unsettled to answer. For those than stand up to her challenge, they are rewarded by Zuleika gleefully bounding away, giggling to herself. She never repeats the things she is told to anyone but the dragon who told her - but she never lets them live down a secret, if they share.

As strange and inconveniencing as its owner, the Living Sculpture that arrived with Zuleika often takes up space within the tunnels and blocks the path of dragons trying to get by. Even though most can simply fly (or step) over it, it still presents itself as an annoying obstacle and has been known to block the entrances into smaller tunnels or lairs, or get in the way of dragons who have no feasible way of getting past it (thankfully the Toxic Wastes is not home to many Snappers).

Backstory

Zuleika arrived at the Wastes one day with as much fanfare as a lone dragon can produce - she demanded to be seen and acknowledged. Most were in awe of her strange plumage, so much so that they neglected to notice the darkness leaking from her eyes. Even Tox, unimpressed by her colors because they didn't even rival his own, seemed to miss this detail. Only one dragon saw through Zuleika's fanciful presentation - Vashti.

From the start, the ever-secretive and mysterious Vashti was openly hostile towards Zuleika, who not only accepted this with a smile, but seemed to expect it. The assembled crowd that had come to witness Zuleika's amazing appearance were shocked by Vashti's anger, and then confused when they didn't forget the display. If anything, it has only been burned into their minds.

Whether this is because of Vashti or Zuleika, no one knows.

Though generally more open about herself and not in possession of the same powers as Vashti, Zuleika is still a mystery to those around her and little about her is understood. Her deeply personal questions seem to hint at some sort of ability to know more than she should about others, though the full extent of this power is unknown and no one wants to test it.

Some dragons have taken it upon themselves to try and glean information on others from Zuleika, but she refuses to spill the secrets she knows to anyone but the dragon who harbors the secret. However, when questioned about Vashti, she actually did have something to say, something she repeats to any who ask her:

"I won't tell you her secrets, but I'll tell you this. Vashti and I are from the same place. The same darkness. And she hates being the same as me."
