Glint, once known as Glaust, was a dragon oracle and a former champion of the Elder Dragon Kralkatorrik. The forgotten used a spell that allowed Glint to regain a will free from Kralkatorrik's control. She then hid many of the elder races from the dragons, saving them from extinction. Since then, she worked with the races, especially the forgotten and humans, and secretly worked to prepare for her former master's eventual return by collecting his crystallized blood and a spear made from Kralkatorrik's spine. She was sought after by the Destiny's Edge in 1320 AE, the same year when Kralkatorrik awakened. Despite the combined efforts of the former dragon champion and the legendary guild, the Elder Dragon and its Branded minions managed to kill Glint and the asura genius Snaff.
Glint was a corrupted living creature like most other Branded; what she was before is unknown however. Human legends claim that Glint was the first creature created by the Six Gods, however this information came from Glint herself, having her own reasons to tell a different version of her origins. In truth, her existence on Tyria predates the arrival of human gods, but she had strong ties to them nevertheless. In 272 AE, she compiled the the Flameseeker Prophecies, foreseeing the return of the titans and the reign and death of the Undead Lich. Centuries later, she guided the Ascalonian heroes as they saw those prophecies to completion.
Glint's powers included the ability to enter the minds of others as well as foreseeing the future. Legends, according to Turai Ossa, said that she concealed her lair within a single grain of sand, and that only those who were Ascended and possessed the gift of "True Sight" could find her. However it was actually hidden by powerful illusions, dispelled when people realize where the lair truly was – on all of the grains of sand, not one. Beside the blood and spear of Kralkatorrik, and the forgotten who were guarding her, Glint's sanctum contained many crystal dragon eggs, and she's known to have had at least one child. The dragon prophet was revered by the Brotherhood of the Dragon, a group of dwarves, who also sought to protect her offspring from the attacks of Destroyers in 1078 AE. It is unknown if Glint's offspring (if they still live) are, like their mother, free from the Elder Dragons' corruption.
