Ghost leopard hatchlings are difficult to raise without a lot of patience, as they tend to be shy and solitary even as babies. Their ability to turn themselves invisible is uncertain, especially when they're startled, leading to more than one magi coming across random visible body parts. They also can't be raised in warm climates, as their thick fur is much more suited to the cold. However, once trust is established, a magi will find themselves with a playful, affectionate hatchling, though they may find that the ghost leopard's incredible jumping ability forces them to rescue their hatchling from all sorts of high places. Hatchlings don't yet have the long, thick tail that the adults have, but it grows quickly, giving them their distinctive appearance.

Ghost leopards are among the rarest creatures in the world, especially as wild leopards live only in the highest, coldest parts of the Alasre mountains. Even if a magi finds a way to venture up to these breathless heights, they aren't guaranteed to see a ghost leopard, as these creatures are not only notoriously shy, but they also possess the ability to make themselves invisible. Some magi have reported that being in contact with a ghost leopard when it turns itself invisible extends the power to the magi, but many don't recommend the experience; the invisible world of a ghost leopard is described as cold, colourless, and soundless except for the muffled sound of the magi's own heartbeat.
