These little ones are highly active and intelligent, and love inventing new games. Despite their playful natures, they are not terribly adventurous. Rather, they remain close to adult rekantums, often holding onto their tails for comfort. When separated from their parents, rekantum hatchlings trumpet loudly, announcing their locations. They make a different cry when greeting their magi, and a shrill one should they ever be in danger.

Though these creatures are taller than any man, with large tusks, they are incredibly gentle. Rekantums spend their days munching away at vegetation, and wandering around the forests. On hot days they can be found submerged in rivers, where they spread mud on themselves to stave off insects. They can suck up water with their long trunks, which they use to cool themselves off. Sometimes they will playfully spray their magi. If one wishes to see a rekantum, it's best to go in search of one. It's not typical to see these companion near villages, but they don't mind human company when it is available. Offering a rekantum a watermelon or two is an easy way to ensure their friendship. Should a rekantum not wish to be approached, though, they will run away with surprising speed. It's impossible to sneak up on a rekantum companion, as their huge ears allow them to hear extremely well. The only animals that try are packs of wolves, when winter has made them mad with hunger. Rekantum companions are rarely targeted, though, as they have powerful tusks, and can fend off many creatures. Though they look similar to many other creatures, there are those who believe that rekantums are an ancient species, grandfathers of all other elephants. There has been evidence of them existing in long gone ages, when even humans were new to the world.
