Ysera is a former Dragon Aspect. She was also the leader of the Green Dragonflight. Ysera’s charge keeping watch over the Emerald Dream. Ysera, bound to the realm she descended into an endless trance. Her being in a trance, would earn her the nickname “The Dreamer”.
Ysera would later fight off the Emerald Nightmare and the corruption of her children. She awoke from her slumber during the events of Cataclysm although she was not able to tell the difference between dream and reality right away, she was sane just not coherent.
Ysera would aid the Guardians of Hyjal when the Twilight’s Hammer and forces of Ragnaros attacked Mount Hyjal. Eventually, she would give up her titan given power to help stop her brother, Deathwing during his last stand. Even after giving up her powers, she would provide guidance and wisdom to all who revere nature, including acting as mentor to the druids of Azeroth.
Ysera became corrupted by the Satyr, Xavius and the Emerald Nightmare. This would force Tyrande Whisperwind and the Cenarion Circle to have to kill her. After her death, Elune sent her to Ardenweald. When her wildseed was dying, the Winter Queen personally ressurected her. This would bind her to Ardenweald itself and she would not be able to leave until Malfurion opts to switch places with her in Dragonflight.
Dawn of The Aspects
Ysera was one of intelligent proto-dragons, capable of broken speech that was unlike most of the others. She was born smaller then the average drake, she was sick and a yellowish color. She had 2 siblings, Alexstrasza and Dralad. She along with them would be the only survivors of their clutch, Alexstrasza took care of her little sister.
War of The Ancients
After Elune and Maloren had their child, Cenarius, Ysera’s attention was drawn. She took him under her wing and taught him a lot of stuff. She would essentially become a foster mother to him. Mortals thought that she was Cenarius’s mother due to their relationship and how close they were, but their bond was most definitely not biological. Ysera gave some of her power to the Demon Soul, not realizing Neltharion would betray them with it.
Day of The Dragon
Krasus convinced the dragon aspects, Ysera, Malygos, and Nozdormu to come out of their lairs and fight Deathwing. They did so grudgingly, but due to the power they gave years ago they were no match for Deathwing. Rhonin was able to destroy the Demon soul, which released the powers the dragons gave it, and Alexstrasza joined the fight. Deathwing was forced to retreat after that.
Before the events of World of Warcraft, Ysera learned about the plans to summon Hakkar into Azeroth so she went and destroyed the temple to prevent this. She then fell silent when the Emerald Nightmare began, and some of her trusted lieutenants were warped by a dark power in the Emerald Dream.
