Wolphyn are mischievous creatures but not malevolent. They like to groom themselves, each other, and trusted magi, at least during the few times per day where they aren't looking for trouble. Their big eyes give them excellent night vision but unfortunately they also spend most of the night running around poking into corners and knocking things off shelves. Their wings are too small to give them true flight but they can glide off high objects, and seem to enjoy leaping on their magi's shoulder from behind. Before committing, magi should weigh the pros and cons of being a wolphyn's sole playmate versus getting two or more and just accepting the household damage.
This feathery egg emits the occasional chirp.
When a wolphyn hatches and is still drying its feathers and fur, it is sleepy and quiet for probably the last time in its life. Once hatchlings are upright and fluffed, they immediately start exploring and looking for things to play with. Mischievous and quick, they enjoy stealing bright and shiny objects, which they will then hoard underneath couches. A group of wolphyn hatchlings should be confined to a sturdy area with plenty of toys and things to destroy, lest they get too bored and go exploring. However, hatchlings do need rest occasionally and will happily cuddle with anyone or anything warm, even if they also feel the need to pull out loose threads and fur.
Adult wolphyn don't grow very big, which means they're excellent at squeezing into small spaces, even ones that it seems impossible they'd fit through. Magi are divided on whether this is just because they're smaller under their feathers and fur than they seem, or whether they're using magic to make themselves fit. Wherever the ability comes from, it makes them both great pest-catchers and able to sneak into even locked rooms in search of small items to steal. Fortunately wolphyn are also adorably dumb and it's very hard to stay angry with them when they seem so happy - even when they inevitably get their claws stuck in fabric, netting, and expensive lace.
