Although their primary concern is finding food, charaen hatchlings find time to play, as well. Their games are strange versions of catch-me-if-you-can, with the losers tossed roughly against rocks. Despite these harsh fights, charaens are resilient creatures, adept at dodging and hiding when necessary. While charaen hatchlings are unkind to one another, they are friendly enough towards their magi, swimming to the surface to greet them.

These companions have a most interesting history; they first arrived in these lands several seasons ago. As not many creatures pose a threat to charaens, they spread throughout brooks and streams at a rapid rate, causing much concern. To deal with the issue, the magi took it upon themselves to slow the advance of the charaen. Now, these fish are only seen in the waters around the castle, and no longer threaten native fish. Many magi took the charaen as companions, though there was no evidence of them possessing magical powers. Indeed, no one would ever have thought charaens magical, until someone carelessly dropped a bit of parchment into a stream. When the paper was retrieved, a strange green map was printed on it. Confused, the magi searched the water thoroughly, but only discovered a lone charaen lurking nearby, which snapped angrily at being disturbed. After some study, it became obvious that the charaen was the one who had created the map, which was a precise depiction of surrounding rivers and brooks. These companions have most powerful memories, and are able to recall every moment of their travels. This information was not of much use, as these waters are already well known, but when a harsh spring storm hit, it became very valuable. The fish informed their magi of a huge approaching flood, which could have been devastating to many. Magi sprang into action, evacuating villages and moving herds out of the way of floods. If not for the help of the charaen, lives may very well have been lost.
