Vilodaes crystalwings are usually found around Keeps and settlements, where they can easily access flower gardens. Magi enjoy having them around not only because of their beautiful and diverse colours, but also because they eat harmful bugs, help pollinate the flowers, and can even use their bodies to provide either extra light or extra shade. Vilodaes prefer cooler areas where they can sun themselves as long as they want, and then move into a more shadowed area to cool down, and aren't often found in areas with snow and ice. They occasionally shed their crystals, which can be used in medicine and also as decoration which retains the ability to cast a soft light.
This crystal-studded egg sits in a bed of brightly coloured flowers.
Vilodaes crystalwing hatchlings are tiny, delicate creatures often found hovering around the Keep's flower gardens, and occasionally hiding within them when spooked. Independent from almost the moment they hatch, vilodaes hatchlings are friendly with others of their species but don't tend to congregate. Hatched in early spring, they reach full size within two months and don't usually need any special attention, though small bowls of liquid sugar are appreciated.
An adult vilodaes crystalwing is small but compact, sturdier than it seems. They don't spend as much time in the air as their hatchlings do, though they're fully capable of flight when needed. The blooms on the ends of their tails are shed in the fall, and magi often collect them to plant in their gardens, where they can stay alive indefinitely as long as they're taken care of. Magi wishing to befriend a vilodaes should be patient, as they can be easily spooked by loud noises and large gestures, but offering sweet treats and freshly tilled soil as a bed can speed up the relationship.
