Nyxondra is a black dragon found circling over the Ruins of Kargath in the Badlands. She is forced by the Red Dragon Rheastrasza to lay eggs in hopes of laying a uncorrupted black dragon egg. Later after Rhea is forced to flee, Nyxondra rouses the black dragons to kill Rhea and put an end to her plans. Nyxondra is killed over the Ruins of Kargath. She is the mother of the uncorrupted black dragon egg which later hatches Wrathion.

It was later revealed that Nyxondra was in fact a sister of Onyxia[2] and thus a daughter of Deathwing himself. Despite this, she is not listed as a relative to them in Ultimate Visual Guide, Updated and Expanded.
