Koredanuki are tricky and mischievous, but generally soft-hearted; they never play their pranks to harm anyone and will be contrite if their target gets angry. They especially enjoy using illusions and reflective surfaces to confuse magi, but can be convinced to stop their tricks with the offer of a gold coin or ten. As they get older, koredanuki also gain the ability to change shape into an inanimate object, which can prove quite startling when one's teapot suddenly sprouts a bushy tail. Many small villages in the Arkene, where koredanuki tend to be found, encourage the creatures to stay, as it's also believed that their presence - mischief aside - promotes goodwill and cheer.
This icy blue egg is oddly reflective, showing things that may not actually be there.
Hatchling koredanuki are mostly fluff, cool to the touch but still soft and lacking the adults' crown of ice. They're full of energy almost from the moment they hatch and love to explore, poking noses and paws into any crack they can find. Magi have at most a month before their koredanuki starts playing pranks, though these tricks are usually clumsy and more adorable than annoying. Koredanuki usually spend their nights roaming around, especially if they can find other hatchlings around the same age to play with.
An adult koredanuki can often seem to be more ice than fur, especially during snowstorms where they seem to blend in with the wind. On clear days, they can often be found playing with icy reflective surfaces, conjuring up images to display and trying to make their magi believe that there really is a pot of gold on the other side of the lake. When the moon is full, adult koredanuki often gather in packs to sing and play, and these impromptu concerts are considered an omen of good luck and approaching prosperity.
