An adult nkoe is less social than as a hatchling, requiring a large territory to roam and hunt in. They are fiercely protective of their families - both hatchlings and magi - and can grow large enough to ride. Some magi have been able to teach their nkoe to assume a form halfway between stone and alive, which slows the nkoe down but allows it to continue to move while still protecting it from any harm. Nkoe are highly intelligent and have been known to display a mischievous sense of humour, especially if it involves startling magi with deep growls in the middle of the night. As adults, they don't swim as often as hatchlings, but do enjoy spending hot days lying in shallow water and splashing anyone or anything that gets too close.

Legend says that the first nkoe and the first tau were found in the same ancient tomb deep in the Ixan Jungle, thought to be nothing more than stone reliefs upon the tomb's walls. The magi who found them took shelter in the tomb escaping a storm and while camping there, were startled to see the reliefs on the wall unfold themselves and drop down to the stone floor. These magi were then presented with eggs to take back with them to civilization, which is where the nkoe and tau spread throughout the world as fierce protectors of magi. The descendants of these first nkoe and tau still have the ability to change into stone, both as statues and as reliefs upon convenient walls.
