This egg is ablaze, making it impossible to handle without gloves.
Known for their wicked tempers, delrochs possess special powers over fire. Naturally, they are originally from the lands of Voltar, where such creatures are content with tormenting nearby villagers. However, when faced with the colder lands to the north, these animals tend to react poorly, losing some of their magic and even fleeing back to warmer climates. Of course The Keep has spelled several stables and pastures for animals with similar problems, and delrochs seem to enjoy their lives as companions. They are most happy when allowed to fight, making them quite useful in situations warranting violence. Another rather useful skill they offer is heating, something very necessary during the colder months. A series of tubes runs underneath the castle, and water sent through them is magically warmed, to keep buildings hospitable. Delrochs often heat these pipes, and will light fires if asked politely enough. This skill can obviously be used for detrimental things, such as burning down houses or heating metal until it melts. These bulls can also quench fire with only a thought, if they feel like being useful. For the most part, though, these bulls will obey their magi companions, albeit grudgingly.
