Moroi crystalwings are loners, avoiding the company of even their own kind except during their rare mating seasons, though they do seem to have an affinity for the chupacabra. Their distinctive colourings - red and gold for the male, silver and blue for the female - make them easy to recognize, assuming a magi can get close enough to tell the difference in the dark areas where they like to live. Some moroi crystalwings have been found in abandoned manors, where they hoard stashes of gold and jewels, but this seems to be an unusual behaviour. Their great wings enable them to fly long distances, but their flight is silent enough that more than one magi has been startled by unexpectedly encountering one in the isolated countryside.
This egg emanates dark energy and sounds a little like it has a heartbeat.
Moroi crystalwing hatchlings hatch only at night, and shun the sunlight from that point on. They prefer dark areas and high places from which they can hang by their back feet, sleeping and watching any movement down below. They eat strictly meat, the rarer the better, and highly dislike the taste or smell of garlic. Although generally lethargic, they can move quite quickly when they want to, and many magi raising these hatchlings report that they like to bite hard enough to draw blood. When fed properly, moroi hatchlings - who start out small enough to comfortably fit in a magi's cupped hands - will grow upwards of ten feet in length, with tails at least as long as their bodies.
An adult moroi crystalwing is long and lean capable of an apparently effortless loping stride on four legs, and an ability to sit on its hindquarters in order to scan the area around it. Their crystals are very rare and highly prized for use in dark and blood magics, but moroi themselves are generally indifferent to the other living creatures around them. Adult moroi rarely breed and magi aren't sure what triggers their breeding season, though it's possibly related to the phases of the moon. As adults, moroi still eat mostly raw meat, but appear to consider blood a special treat, though most at least have the manners to wait until it's offered instead of just taking it.
