These creatures are usually found near lava, or sometimes even hot springs, as they are attracted to warmth. Should they be brought inside the castle, viton hatchlings immediately swarm towards fireplaces, curling up in the flames. On cold days, they will happily curl around their magi's shoulders, providing them with warmth, as long as the human remains indoors. Viton hatchlings despise the cold, and if exposed to it, will go into a deep sleep.

The tale of how vitons came to these lands is an interesting one. Not long ago, a giant piece of a glacier washed ashore in Voltar. It was the height of many men, and was thought to have come from unknown lands across the water. It attracted the attention of many people, as no one had ever seen such a thing so far to the south. Naturally, the ice began to melt quickly in the hot sun of Voltar, and disappeared within a few short days. As the ice melted away into the sand, these creatures were freed from it. At first, they were completely motionless, and seemed to be nothing more than strange rocks. But as the desert sun continued beating down, they slowly began to move. The vitons had simply been hibernating in the ice, and as they warmed, they awoke. You see, in any cold environment, vitons become sluggish, and eventually stop moving. They are immobile, trapped in a deep sleep. It is thought that they can remain in such a sleep for thousands of years, and suffer no harm upon waking. When in this state, they become hard to the touch, and very heavy – just like rock. Unlike any rock, though, they are easy to wake. Placing them in the sun will wake them in a few days. A faster way is to lay them in a blazing hot fire. The viton will instantly be filled with energy and move once more.
