It's of the utmost importance to build a close bond with a lucinis as soon as possible. For the first few days after hatching, magi carry their little birds everywhere, doting on them. Young lucinis birds are temperamental creatures, and unless they are held constantly and offered treats, become enraged. Though they are very cute and small, their anger is something to be avoided. They will peck at anyone who comes near, and sulk constantly. The minute one's back is turned, though, the little one runs off to play with other lucinis hatchlings as though nothing is wrong.
Lucinis birds are beautiful creatures, but unfortunately their personalities do not match their appearances. These feisty birds love nothing better than to argue with one another. About what, no one is quite sure. Lucinis birds don't allow their inability to speak stop them from being rude to humans, either. Their expressions are scathing, and they rarely offer their help. It's pointless to give a lucinis an order; the only way to get them to do anything is to spend several hours praising them, or to bribe them. Their help is often asked for, despite this. Lucinis birds are stubborn creatures, and though they are not the most intelligent of species, will work at a problem or spell nonstop until they have found the answer. It's best not to give a lucinis a truly difficult project, as they will not stop working until done. There are some birds who have been working on complex theories for years, though you wouldn't know it. They appear to be napping, or busy soaking up the sun, though they are really deep in thought. These pink birds wander from the lake to the stream, and very particular about which areas belong to them. If they believe their territory has been invaded, they'll charge after the intruder, wings extended with every intention of ending the offender's life. Luckily, lucinis birds are more beautiful than strong, and though they run fast, can be driven off with a stick. Some say it's one of the reasons staffs have become so popular among the students lately. The only times these birds are sweet is when they are alone with their mates. Lucinis birds fight with their mates as well, but in such an affectionate way that anyone can tell it's only play.
