Legend states that the first sacris crystalwing was born from a broken stained glass window, after it was smashed during a time of war. Despite their violent beginnings, sacris crystalwings are renowned for their kindness and benevolent nature. They're creatures of sunlight and colour, and can often be seen dozing in sunny spots, where the light can catch the crystal feathers at the tips of their wings. Too delicate and small to be of use in a fight - and a sacris crystalwing would never show any violence - they can still be a calming influence with just their presence. Many magi take them along when expecting unfriendly encounters with man or beast, letting the sacris crystalwing ride on their shoulder so it can enjoy the light and spread its calming influence over anyone nearby.
This bright egg is covered in jewels and gives off an air of benevolence and calm.
Sacris crystalwing hatchlings are small enough to fit in the palm of a magi's hand and grow over the course of a year to their full size, which is still small enough to comfortably sit on even a child's shoulders, draped loosely around their neck like a slightly sharp scarf. They hatch with both the crystal feathers that tip their wings, and with the ability to calm the agitated emotions of anyone nearby. Magi actually avoid having too many sacris crystalwing hatchlings together simply because they can cause such calm that everyone who enters the area falls asleep. That doesn't mean they aren't active hatchlings, however; sacris crystalwings are curious creatures and their small size allows them to crawl into tiny nooks and crannies. They tend also to be fearless and will happily make friends with any creature that lets them, big or small.
An adult sacris crystalwing is a common and beautiful sight within temples and royal courts, where they're kept to ensure that cool heads prevail even in the trickiest of situations. Many temples of all faiths have declared them protected creatures and they're often found curled around the necks of the rich in Synara City. Friendly and curious, they enjoy seeing new places and meeting new friends, but will also spend as much of the day as possible soaking up the sun. Their shed gems are greatly desired by people all over the world due to some of their calm nature being imbued into their jewels. This effect remains even when the gems are broken, which allows some jewelers to split the gems and sell the shards at a lower price for those who couldn't otherwise afford expensive jewelry.
