Ikantan hatchlings are well known pranksters. Whenever the weather takes a turn for the better, these little ones become quite rambunctious. They love throwing things at people, and more than one person has been stained by a hail of berries. People have actually gone to such extremes as tainting these creature's meals with mild sleeping potions, just to get some rest. When tired, ikantan hatchlings become extremely well mannered, and can be tucked into a pocket and forgotten about.

In any place where there are trees, ikantans can be found. Though they prefer the areas around the castle, these companions can survive almost anywhere. This is in part due to the fact that they are not picky eaters. Ikantans will eat any nuts or fruits they can find, and the gems on their foreheads glow brightly when they are near food. They are able to use this power to ripen foods as well, and even change the taste. Should any villages be suffering from poor crops, a horde of ikantans will offer aid. A few people claim to have seen ikantans levitating a berry or a nut, pulling it towards them. Why these creatures would choose to keep such a skill secret, one can only guess. One secret that has been discovered is that ikantans must eat certain berries in order to keep their powers at full force. The berries, which are red or blue, taste revolting to all other creatures. These berries are only found at the top of certain trees, which isn't a problem. Ikantans are incredibly deft climbers. Their powerful hind legs allow them to take great leaps from tree to tree, while they use their large tails for balance. When moving on land, though, these companions are slower. They bounce along in a humorous fashion, and often stop and stand on their hind legs to scope out areas ahead. Ikantans are extremely energetic and curious. They explore everywhere they can think of, often ending up inside people's homes.
