Taming a tamina is a difficult undertaking, but once completed, a magi will have a loyal, intelligent companion like no other. These creatures are invaluable on long journeys through forests and into cold climates, where their sixth sense for danger will almost certainly save lives. While they do not get along with their own species, taminas do not mind other species for a major reason - with a stare, other creatures will defer to a tamina in almost all cases, for reasons magi have yet to fully explain. This ability is only seen in the adults. Even larger creatures like direwolves or dangerous creatures like nandi bears will not bother a tamina after looking once into their eyes, and these small creatures often roam forests and tundras as though they rule the territory above all others. A tamina raised by a magi will be more accepting of other creatures, and will only use their power if necessary. It is said that those who live in Boreus will sometimes use taminas as the leader on teams of sled dogs.

These creatures range from the northernmost Silva forests to the cold northern wastes of Boreus, and their coat colors range from a reddish brown to a pale white the farther north one finds them. Those that live in Silva forest tend to hunt in trees, dropping on their prey from above like a large cat would, while the variant that lives in Boreus are swift and agile runners that will chase down their prey like lone wolves. Their willful natures are unique, and it is extremely uncommon to see these creatures interact. Even during the breeding season, females raise their young alone, and as soon as the hatchlings are able to walk, the mother leaves them. As a result, these creatures are rare, but a tamina that lives to adulthood will be incredibly cunning and intelligent, with a keen understanding of what it takes to survive.
