Alipacas originate from Tetzcotal where they were originally raised as working companions, used to help build the various temples. These days however, alipacas can be found most everywhere as many magis have taken to keeping them. alipacas are well-loved creatures around the keep as they have a calming energy about them. When a magi is close to an alipaca, they feel calm, at peace with the world and it is not uncommon to find students hanging around their paddocks during exam time. Popular with magis who love to knit or crochet, their wool is perfect for making various garments that are highly sought after as the clothing made from their fiber is extremely soft, light weight, fire resistant, and very warm. Many magis prefer to use clothing made from alipaca wool when traveling to the Arkene region. While not as strong as being around an alipaca, the clothing made from the wool can produce the same calming sensation.

Alipaca hatchlings spend most of their days lazing about in the fields, grazing on the various plants. They love to play and will try to play with any creature nearby. It is not uncommon to see a little hatchling bounding after a butterfly into a field of tall grass, so it is always a good idea to keep an eye on them as they are easy to lose sight of. They have no sense of danger and will try to engage with dragons or any other dangerous creature if given the chance. As they age however, they begin to calm down, becoming less playful and will start becoming more weary of the creatures they surround themselves with. If kept without a group, the alipaca will spend most of its time following after its magi.
Sweet and mild mannered, alipacas make great companions for many magis. When kept in herds, they thrive, but are able to be kept by themselves easily enough. They do tend to follow their magis around wherever they go if they are kept alone, so it is always best to have at least one other alipaca for them to be with if you do not want the extra company. They love flowers and if you ever happen to lose your alipaca, it is always best to start searching in a nearby flower garden first. When threatened, they can use their power to calm the potential attacker and put them in a peaceful trance, leaving them plenty of time to escape. If by some chance the trance doesn’t work, they will resort to spitting in their attackers face. Their spit has no magical properties, most attackers find it annoying and usually give up.
