A long pink tail emerges from this egg.
Decessusi are strange creatures, and very rare. They are only born once a year, in the dead of the night, making them hard to come by and coveted among magi who delve into the darker arts. These rodents are oddities even among magical creatures, as they move without breathing, and no blood flows through their veins. Bones peek through decaying flesh, a startling sight to those not accustomed to this species. Despite their frightening appearance, they are loyal to their magi, and can often be found curled up in a cloak pocket, sleeping away the day. Much superstition surrounds decessusi, and not surprisingly, most fear them. No one knows how these beings came into existence: there are varying opinions on the matter. Some believe it was evil magi meddling with the balance of magic, but most think it is the spirits of the dead, trying to grasp what little life they can. No matter where their souls came from, decessus are clever creatures, masters at collecting information and helping their magi.
