Phoenix Amagnae #1177

General

These creatures are gorgeous--most of the time. Their feathers are silky and glow with a steady flame, a pleasing mix of oranges and red, with purples along their back. They are considered a symbol of autumn, and their feathers tend to reach their peak temperature during the autumn season. Their feathers grow hotter and hotter, the air shimmering around their bodies with the heat. Each phoenix amagnae can reach a specific temperature before their feathers vanish in a burst of fire, leaving the creatures naked until their feathers grow back. This temperature differs between each amagnae, with some bursting at a mere 200 degrees and others at blistering temperatures that are difficult to measure safely.

Egg

This egg is blisteringly hot.

Hatchling

These creatures tend to love soft things, and enjoy cuddling or rolling around on blankets. Young phoenix amagnae can't maintain their heated temperatures as well as they can when they're adults, and tend to burn their offers off very often. Since they are small and somewhat fragile as hatchlings, to keep them safe and comfortable, magi often dress them in warm sweaters while their feathers grow back.

Adult

Autumn is an interesting time for phoenix amagnae. Their feathers burst in fiery conflagrations when they reach their peak temperature, and ashes drift through the halls of the keep as the feathers burn. Magi take care not to let their amagnae fly too far, for if their feathers burn off mid-flight, the poor creature may fall. Interestingly, even feathers that aren't attached to the creature will maintain their heat, and turn to flames and then ash once they heat up. Feathers are sometimes sold as heating devices to be used on long journeys, but must be discarded before autumn arrives.
