These hatchlings are very easy to care for. They move very slowly, and can be lured anywhere with a bit of food. A common way to herd a calidim hatchling is to lay down a trail of lettuce. Though it may take the little one a few hours to eat the food, they will surely end up at the desired destination. When not devouring plants, these hatchlings love to explore the woods around the castle. They do so in groups, and are followed by a few watchful adults. Caladim hatchlings are not particularly interested in the castle, but they do love the gardens. If not for the gates built there, calidim hatchlings would probably eat every plant in sight.

Though calidims may look odd, with scaled bodies, long tails and heads like those of snakes, they are actually quite friendly. In the wild, they will approach any human they spot, first flickering their tongues out to smell the person. Should nothing offend them, they will investigate further. They are trusting animals, and simply offering them a handful of green leaves is enough to form a friendship. Calidims are especially partial to lettuce or carrots, and anyone who gives them these foods will receive an affectionate headbutt in return. Magi who often give their calidim companions treats will even be offered rides on their backs, though most decline. Despite their size, calidims move very slowly, and often become distracted and stop to eat. Due to their lack of speed, they usually remain in the same areas, and as such are easy to find. They build no homes, and dislike sleeping in caves. Instead, when they tire, they simply stop wherever they are. These companions will sleep anywhere, regardless of their surroundings. As night falls and it grows colder, calidims become sluggish and even slower. To combat this, they use their magic to produce heat, and sleep until the sun rises once more. No one is sure where calidim companions are from: it seems they have always inhabited the woods. The oldest villagers say that calidims have lived here for countless centuries, and historic documents found in the library support this.
