These hatchlings may make quite a pretty sight, as they are encrusted in gems, but they are not easy to handle. Despite not being able to fly yet, lapis crystalwing hatchlings still explore as much as possible. They move very slowly, as they are quite heavy, but are very determined to adventure. Unfortunately, their journeys usually lead to the magi’s rooms, where they hunt for anything shiny. One is lucky if the crystalwing just steals their valuables, because they will also sometimes eat them. It’s best to distract them with bright rocks, and crystals.

Though most crystalwings are secretive creatures, lapis crystalwings are commonly spotted. They are attracted to anything bright, and will frequently fly above human settlements, looking for gems. Lapis crystalwings can fly extremely high, and do not tire easily, despite being incredibly heavy. These companions feel like metal to the touch, and their scales turn burning hot when they fall asleep in sunlight. Lapis crystalwings love the sun’s rays, and will seek it out even in winter. They seem indifferent to most weather, but tend to return to the Caves of Nareau when fall draws near. Those caves are supposedly full of treasures, but there are few who journey there. Lapis crystalwings keep their own caves in this area, where they collect all manner of shiny things they have stolen. Trying to retrieve an item they have taken is nearly impossible, as there are hundreds of twisting caves and dangerous animals.
