500 years ago in Kumandra a dark, monstrous plague called the Drunn was the source of turning everything and everyone it touches into stone. All of the humans and most of the dragons were turned into stone by the Drunn as Sisu and her siblings were not. Sisu and her siblings were the last dragons left who didn't get turned into stone to stop the Drunn from turning all of Kumandra into stone. Sisu's Older brother Pengu was the one, along with the rest of Sisu's siblings were the ones who created the Dragon gem to stop the Drunn in their tracks and then entrusted it into their sister Sisu's hands to stop the drunn, but unfortunately all of Sisu's siblings have now been turned to stone leaving Sisu as the last Dragon left of Kumandra. She then uses the dragon gem to blast away the Drunn but it does not bring her siblings back from their demise only the humans. After the events of the last stand she got blasted into the water by the dragon gem and she swam away to the river's end where she remain there until she was woke up by Raya 500 years later.

Sisu is first seen in Present day Kumandra 500 years after Raya wake's her up. After the dragon is awaken, Raya informs Sisu of the return of the Drunn and how the dragon gem was broken by the five tribes of Kumandra after fighting over the sacred object six years ago. She then gives Sisu a broken piece of the dragon gem which unknown to Sisu starts to glow, she then see herself glowing and claims that the power of glowing belonged to her younger sister Amba. Raya then gets excited saying "you know what this means right?, you are still connected to the gems magic... and if we find all the other pieces we can reassemble the gem and pull the Drunn away". They then travel together away from the rivers end on a journey across Kumandra to find the other broken pieces. First they land in the Fang land where Raya and Sisu see Namaari and her troops in the cliffs while Raya and Sisu have already found the second piece of the dragon gem.

But then Raya remembered what Sisu said about trust and Raya and the others start to trust Namaari. She then puts all the dragon gem pieces back together. The dragon gem starts to glow and then starts to create a blast which destroys the Drunn for good. After the events of the Drunn's defeat all the dragons come back from their demise and fortunately brings Sisu back to life. Happily reunited with her kind, Sisu then greets Raya by splashing water on her with her tail.
