Any magi looking to raise a red eyed kalistavri must first ensure they have an adequate supply of salmon or other fish available. Young kalistavri are incredibly food motivated and do not yet understand the difference between common pond minnows and companion fabari or goldfish. Fortunately for the fabari they are rather clumsy fishers, though more than a few magi have had moments of terror watching a flock of hungry juvenile red eyed kalistavri hurtle full speed towards the pond in an attempt at a snack.

Making their homes in the area around the Keep, these small birds can often be seen hunting fabari and other fish in the pond They are also common companions among the makers of staffs and wands for the use of their feathers during the enchanting process, in particular items for those who do not wish to be seen openly communicating. This is because the feathers of the kalistavri absorb and contain the magic of any magical creatures they eat, thus allowing the birds to communicate silently when in danger. The more magic they absorb, the stronger the enchantments that can be created, thus making them valuable companions. This is not without drawbacks though, as magi who wish to raise kalistavri as companions must be careful to train them to only eat wild fabari or non magical fish, lest heartbreak follow. Some magi have begun conducting experiments to see if kalistavri can absorb the effects of magical potions but so far the results have been inconclusive.
