With their bright plumage and quick manner, jubilant cockatoos always seem to be excited about something, and eager to share that excitement with the world. It's this happy demeanor that earned them their name; fortunately they are usually as cheerful as they seem, and love to socialize with any person or creature who will pay attention to them. Given that they can disrupt whole neighborhoods if upset or ignored, many areas require would-be owners to get special training and permits to own one, while others have banned the birds entirely. Some magi have tried to make talismans that can suppress the cockatoo's magic, but so far no one's managed to make one that will also survive the bird's crushing beak.

In the southern lands from Taggelisk to the Ixan Jungle, the harsh terrain can be deadly in any season, isolating and threatening small communities and travellers. To combat this, call towers and waystations riddle the area, manned by keepers of trained, magical cockatoos. While no louder than any other cockatoo at the source, the enhanced calls of these birds can carry far beyond the range of their unenhanced kin, passing messages via complex patterns of shrieks, wails, and some words. Originally created by magi, over the years enough birds have escaped and bred with their wild counterparts that messages can be disrupted by wild flocks, so they are repeated, with brief pauses, until a response signal is received three times.
