Osanyin crystalwings are gentle creatures despite their formidable size and appearance - until their gardens and forests are threatened. Found mostly in temperate and northern biomes, where they can blend in better, osanyin are guardians of nature. Each osanyin family chooses a forest or a garden to guard as their own, where they raise their hatchlings and defend against any intruders that seek to harm their trees and plants. An osanyin-protected spot of nature will always grow well, which has led magi to befriend these crystalwings and encourage them to choose Keep and city gardens, as well as nearby farmlands and rural areas. In return for their protection, magi provide osanyin crystalwings with offerings taken from their harvests, whether grains, fruit, or a portion of carefully logged trees.
This egg is wrapped in warm wood and gives off a gentle green glow.
Osanyin hatchlings camouflage themselves as dead branches and bushes until they grow large enough to help their parents protect their chosen spot of nature. As they grow, they begin to nurture the vegetation around them, with the help of other osanyin family members. With magi they're friendly but somewhat distant; this is generally considered a good thing as they're as hard as the wood they resemble, and have varying patterns of thorns. Fortunately they can play with other osanyin crystalwings, as well as creatures with hardier skin or armour.
Adult osanyin crystalwings can grow to great sizes, though the biggest are usually guardians of forests. Although their purpose is to protect, they understand that gardens need to be harvested, and forests can be logged - though under the watchful eye of the osanyin guardians, magi are very careful to take only trees that are dead, dying, or a danger to the rest of the forest. Osanyin adults spend most of their time nurturing their territory and raising their hatchlings, but when threatened they can turn the land itself against an intruder.
