Missath was a female dragon (probably green) from Telgar Weyr.
Some time before the events of Red Star Rising/Dragonseye, Missath broke her sail bone when she lost her balance and fell from the skies. This incident was later retold by T'dam, who was teaching the weyrlings at Telgar Weyr how to deal with injuries to their dragons. He mentioned Missath as an example of how dragons respond quickly to pain; noting how she began squealing before she fell; knowing she would hurt herself. Several weyrlings remembered this squeal; one stating it "went right through him like a bonecutter".
