K!sdra was a dragon rider of the Wyrmberg. He rode the dragon Bronze Psepha in the magic field around the Wyrmerg which allowed dragons to exist. He was one of several riders dispatched by Liessa to capture Hrun the Barbarian, Twoflower, and Rincewind, who had entered the Wyrmberg's magical field by accident and were now attempting to escape. He went after Rincewind, who had managed to evade the first wave that captured Hrun and Twoflower. Normally, capturing Rincewind would have been no trouble at all, but in this case, Rincewind was wielding the sentient sword Kring, which curved up and caught K!sdra's blade, sending both it and him flying. Rincewind then took K!sdra prisoner, made him fly Rincewind up to the Wyrmberg to try and rescue his companions because Kring was forcing him to be a hero, against his will.

When they arrived at the Wyrmberg, however, other dragons and guards armed with crossbows cornered them, and K!sdra gained his freedom, ordering Rincewind to surrender (which he did not do). He then helped Rincewind into a pair of hookboots for a duel with Lio!rt Dragonlord.
