The holidays are heralded by many things, but one of the most memorable is the chiming calls of settian drakelings as they arrive by the dozens at the Keep. Settian drakelings are small enough to sit comfortably on a magi's head or shoulder, but are larger than either of their parent species. Though they resemble glyceris drakelings more, they get their strong ice magic from their crycoris parent. They use this power rarely against others, preferring instead to use frost to produce beautiful patterns on stone and glass - patterns that most often resemble the poinsettia flower. Settian drakelings have a great love for the poinsettia flower and only nest in places where these red flowers bloom. They present those they care for with poinsettia blossoms.
This egg is cradled in a poinsettia flower.
Hatchling settian drakelings are exuberant and festive, readily joining in on all the holiday fun that goes on at the Keep. No matter what, though, they stick close to their parents, and will even try to leap from high places when they take off despite their own wings being too small. Magi who choose settian drakelings as companions find this quite a jarring experience, but the drakelings seem to think it's great fun.
Magi with settian drakelings companions find themselves with a constant friend. These drakelings love company, especially that of their magi, and will stick close to them as much as possible. Many magi train their settian drakelings to learn their magi's voice so that their magi can call to them if they become lost. Although exuberant and happy all year, the winter holiday season brings out the best of the settian drakeling. Attracted by bells, song, and festivity, carolers in particular often find themselves in the company of several of these little creatures, both their own companions and those of others. The drakelings may even try to sing along with their chiming calls, especially if trained.
