The vast Etain desert, with scorching days and nights filled with cool greyness, holds many wonders even the magi have yet to witness. The legends among the locals tell of magnificent creatures only seen during the hottest hours of the day and the coolest hours of the night, with skin the colour of the sun and mane and tail woven from rays of moonlight. The story goes that those who have seen the creatures describe an encompassing serenity, a calmness that befalls anyone who lays eyes on one of the beasts. Such is the power of these creatures, however, that upon losing sight of them the gazer slowly starts to despair, longing for just one more glimpse of the animal until the desire grows too strong and the people venture into the desert in search of the kirins.
You feel compelled to touch this bright tufted egg.
Your egg has hatched into a lively bright creature and you can't seem to take your eyes off its antics. Young haulos kirins spend their days darting from rock to rock and gathering around any sources of warmth and light they can find. On occasion the fawn settles down onto a patch of sunlight basking and soaking in the warmth, shifting its resting place as the sun moves so as to never fall in shadow. When you lose sight of your small companion you grow frantic until you catch a glimpse of it again.
Adult haulos kirins are proud and majestic creatures. They prefer to keep their own company and only allow few select people close to them. Just as well, as the tiniest glance of a haulos kirin has the effect of mesmerizing people and compelling them to draw closer. People who have remained in the company of a haulos kirin for a prolonged time report a strong desire to bring fruit and leaves to the creature as well as provide other necessities for it. The purpose of bringing the kirin food remains unclear, as it is speculated that the scales on the animal's back soak up sun rays feeding the creature.
