Silvan Otter #553


Silvan otters are friendly, affectionate companions who love to be social - the bigger the group, the better. In the wild they often roam in large family groups, and they are very welcoming to not only other members of their species, but also to any other creature that doesn't try to eat them. When it comes to escaping predators, silvan otters have the advantage of the colour of their coat, which is brown in the warmer months and white in the winter months. No matter what the time of year, they have the ability to create objects out of snow, and will often animate them as playmates. Silvan otters have a special affinity for snow dragons, who they have day-long snowball fights with, and for butterflies, which they never tire of chasing.


You're not sure if this is an egg, or just a lump of snow.


Silvan otter hatchlings demand attention almost from the second they hatch from their eggs, and magi are advised to raise two or more of them together. A hatchling left alone for long periods of time will become depressed, but happy hatchlings delight in playing pranks on each other and on any magi in range. Most hatchlings are unable to create the intricate toys that adults can, but they love to roll up great balls of snow that they can then lie across, especially in the hot summer months. As they get older, their creations and pranks get more sophisticated, but they're so adorable that most magi can't stay annoyed for very long.


Adult silvan otters are a little more independent than hatchlings, but they still need daily interaction and will do best when allowed to spend time with their magi, family members, or even other tolerant creatures. Mischievous and playful, they use their snow powers to play pranks on their magi or create their own companions, many of which are so lifelike that magi have been fooled into thinking they've discovered a new creature. Although silvan otters sometimes look like they're made of snow, especially in the winter months, their fur is soft and thick, keeping them warm even when they dive into snowbanks or half-frozen water. They are excellent parents to their hatchlings and always seem to sense when their magi is having a bad day, temporarily putting their mischief on hold to come and cuddle.
