Frozen Male Hatchling
Species: Coria Alagos
Birthday: Thursday, December 3, 2009
Clever purple eyes meet yours, and you bend reach down to offer your hatchling a perch. It nimbly climbs onto your shoulder and swivels its head, looking around curiously . You wince as its sharp claws dig into your flesh and you reach up to rearrange it, only to receive a sharp bite on your hand. Alagos are not known to be one of the most affectionate of creatures, although they have their own sort of loyalty. Unsociable as this little one may be, it prefers your company to that of others, and does not seem to understand the concept of play. The only time it truly seems to be enjoying itself is when it hunts through tall grasses, hunting for insects or mice to eat.
Coria alagos are dark and beautiful creatures. They prefer night to day - their colorings, as well as their personalities, are suited to the later hours. Dark magi prefer this breed of bird, as they have a natural connection with the blacker arts. They are powerful companions despite this reputation, for magic seems more potent when performed around them. For this reason, these birds are present when students are being taught a particularly difficult lesson, though it is not likely they wish to be. Corias would prefer to see people suffer, and they are intelligent enough to prove real threats. Many a young magi has fallen victim to their traps, often set by dark magi. They are incredibly powerful, but one must be wary of them, even if you are a caretaker of one.
