Magi who keep krampen beests claim that they make wolphyns look angelic by comparison. This is something of a point of pride for such magi, even though very few people try to acquire krampen beest eggs intentionally and fewer still appreciate the creatures much once they've hatched. Getting rid of a krampen beest is a monumental feat; even when they're gifted, traded away, or released into the wild, they still regularly visit their original owner to tear up their things, giggling in hoarse barks the whole while. Some claim them to be misunderstood, though it's rather difficult to argue that when the creatures are tearing up your brand-new presents and shaving needles off of your tree onto the floor. While youngsters seem to love destroying things just for the fun of it, adults soon gain the ability to judge whether someone is especially upset based on their reactions, and preferentially destroy things that will be dearly missed. Often, magi will recruit sintervos to deliver purposefully disappointing presents to fool a krampen beest into destroying those rather than the more cherished gifts. Pretending to be upset at losing a pair of old socks may satisfy a krampen beest enough that it leaves you alone for the rest of the season, so feigning distress is something krampen beest caretakers must master quickly. Like the sintervos, krampen beest are technically around throughout the year. Thankfully, though, their destructive tendencies only appear during the holidays.

Winter is a rough time of year in the north, with light vanishing for days at a time and many creatures gone much further south to wait out the colder, snowier nights. However, even in the far north, people find ways to cheer themselves up with tales about the sintervos. These creatures are incredibly shy, considered little more than a myth even by the denizens of Synara and other major cities, but the northern folk of the Arkene still take care to leave milk and crumbs next to the fireplace in the winter for the sintervos. Parents often tell their children that the sintervos is invisible throughout the year, occasionally checking in on households to see if the children are behaving. On the Solstice, the sintervos become visible and get to work delivering presents to those who were good throughout the year. If the children were bad, their parents warn they'll be visited by cruel demon creatures that like to destroy presents instead.
