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 adults, 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 anything they can find, and wandering around the desert. On extremely hot days desert rekantums search for rivers, and submerge themselves. They can suck up water with their long trunks, and spray their bodies in order to cool 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. These companions have no enemies in the deserts, as they are one of the largest creatures to live there. Desert rekantums have powerful tusks and easily fend off any predators. Though they share many traits with different varieties of elephants, there are those who believe that rekantums have actually walked the earth for thousands of years, and that others descended from them. There has been evidence of them existing in long gone ages, when even humans were new to the world.
