How odd. My impression was that she would join the army and pass as a Dzur, and the distasteful bit would be to pass as a House that would not have anything to do with her due to her heritage.

I thought (perhaps mistakenly) that Dragon armies are made up of *mostly* Dragons, that being a rather warfare-minded House. (Not counting conscripts.)
