So I'm going to do the impossible and try to predict what in the void is going on in a DragonFable plot. Let's see if I can get at least within a ballpark, eh?
Ok, so Siofra has a specific set of elemental-related abilities. We know exactly what type of elements he uses thanks to a certain Inn Fight (not cannon, but he was designed with the character in mind. I doubt there will be too much difference). He favours your more 'real' elements, nature, silver, metal, the like. If he were a standard elemental, he would be restricted to the base 8. Thus, we can conclude that his powers come not from elements, but from some other source. My grand theory is that he is an 'absorber' taking on the qualities of things he interacts with. Things like fire, stone and gems, as with the cannon occurrences. This also partially explains Uber Mode siofra in the Inn, as his 'shifting' could be a form of desensitising to the element. His referencing a 'collection' implies he has a bunch of artifacts that give him power.
So plot wise, he needs the dragon bane, as he said, because of how refined it is. He needs it specifically so he can have a heightened level of power against a dragon. Now, story wise, as Messimy (notevengonnatrytospellthatone) and our dragon (because we need that level of firepower) are going to be taken out, and our hero will probably have some sort of blackwinter flashbacks (that is before this cannonically, yes? timelines are confusing).
Not sure which dragon he wants out, probably ours and we just walked into a trap. Or it might be someone we don't know. Either way, we got some more taking sides against humanity incomming. Always good to see our hero slay people from dragonback in the name of dragon lives. Good times.
Edit: Ok, so upon reviewing the timeline (which I totally noobed and forgot was a thing) our dragon hasn't even gone full doom yet. This nest stuff occurs between Madness and Weal. Which is even more confusing, because now these upbeat events are happening in a time when our hero is just about to lose their dragon. Wait, no, that's potential foreshadowing. Reverse foreshadowing? Or is it referencing? Dear Avatars, timelines are confusing. I can't wait for the fleshweaver stuff to break our puny, mortal perceptions; like cause and effect, and logical reasoning!
