Hvitamarr hatchlings are surprisingly agile given their extra legs, but on bad footing or when they're excited, they will often tangle themselves up and fall on their noses. Fortunately they're sturdy creatures, and when balanced are fast enough that they're often little more than shiny gold or pink blurs. Friendly and affectionate, hvitamarr hatchlings grow fast but should not be ridden until they're full adults, to allow their long legs time to adjust to their weight. Their horns don't grow in until they're fully grown, and both male and female hvitamarr will have mock sparring matches that look - and sound - deadly but usually are only in play.

The magi who saw the first hvitamarr thought it was a mirage or an illusion, brought about by the glow of the sun through the mountains surrounding the caves of Nareau. Hvitamarr make their home at the base of these mountains, extending towards Synara in the east and Alveus in the west. They're strong and sturdy creatures, capable of travelling great distances even with a rider and supplies. Like their vedhrmarr cousins, they have a particular fondness for poetry, especially the kind known as kenning. It's thought that their proximity to the caves of Nareau is what gave them the shine to their gold and pink coats. Hvitamarr are very loyal to their magi and their magi's loved ones, and tend to be more aggressive than their vedhrmarr cousins, especially when it comes to defending themselves and their family.
