Species: Black Rose Imp
Birthday: Friday, August 20, 2010
Although similar to draconians in appearance, imps distinguish themselves as separate not only by their size but also through their powers. Living so long in isolation has honed their magic to fit their living conditions. Adult rose imps possess great control over nature magic, and are able to call plants into existence in mere moments. This skill is particularly useful to magi in search of rare herbs for spells, or for healing purposes. It is a common enough sight to see a rose imp working alongside their human companion in the gardens, rebuilding the gardens that feed The Keep. The lands outside, however, must replenish themselves as these creatures do not leave the safety of The Keep, even to travel. As soon as a pair of these imps were seen again at The Keep, people from near and far came to see them. Many Synarian nobles wanted to buy them as pets, but were turned away. As valuable as they are, it is important to ensure they do not fall into the wrong hands. Dark magi and others would use their powers as weapons, perhaps to ensnare people with vines or even strangle them. These imps could easily become vicious creatures.
Years of solitude have allowed these creatures to adapt extremely well to their environment, and as such these creatures exist in several different color variations. Just like the beautiful roses in which they make their homes, these imps are either rich red, pink, yellow or pure white with spots and horns. Although they are rather small, even in adulthood, they are formidable little beasts. Sharp teeth and claws can easily pierce skin, and their fast speeds make them difficult to catch. This also allows these imps to catch the bugs and insects that comprise their diet, which these imps quickly devour. The roses they live among also provide them with food, as well as shelter, and their six limbs make the speed at which they consume flower petals quite impressive.
