Dionych Crystalwing #995

General

Dionych crystals of either colour are considered a great prize, both for their beauty and for their ability to either prevent nightmares or bring about pleasant dreams. Dionych crystalwings themselves are good companions for most magi, friendly enough that they can be trained - as long as they're kept away from apple trees - but powerful enough for defense. They're also generally easy keepers, especially if magi allow them to roam freely and ensure they can hunt enough meat to feed themselves and any hatchlings.

Egg

This horned egg is a patchwork of familiar colours.

Hatchling

A dionych crystalwing hatchling is all limbs and tail, with a tendency to trip over its own claws and hooves. They're slim to start and enjoy cramming themselves through the tiniest places, at least until they grow old enough that they begin to bulk up. As hatchlings their wings are fairly useless and their awkwardness slows them down, but only for a short while. As they grow bigger, they gain control over their limbs and prove to be remarkably fast both on foot and on the wing. Hatchling dionych tend to be friendly and like to cuddle when they're not playing with each other or any other creature willing.

Adult

An adult dionych crystalwing is a large but light creature, able to carry small loads or people but likely to dump them off in favour of stealing apples from trees. Despite this, they aren't malicious, and will usually return to their magi to beg for forgiveness with puppy-dog eyes - once they've eaten their fill. Though gentle with magi and hatchlings, they can be formidable as opponents with their horns, claws, and powerful back legs. Most magi are advised to have at least one male and one female dionych, as dark dionych are more active at night where light dionych have more energy during the day. Dionych adults use this to help trade off when they have eggs or hatchlings, ensuring their offspring always have at least one available, rested parent.
