Snow hares spend most of their time playing in the snow, easily able to hide from humans by turning into a pile of snow at a moment's notice. Although, they definitely do not avoid humans at all times. Snow hares possess a certain bond with the snow they so resemble, enabling them to find lost things, animals, or even humans lost in a blizzard. The most famous example of this is the story of a little girl who had lost her pet bunny. Something had spooked the bunny and caused it to run away, and with the snow falling it soon became impossible to follow its tracks. However, the girl refused to give up and, remembering stories of snow magic aiding in finding lost things, although not remembering the details, built a snow version of her bunny and called upon it to come alive. Eventhough her magic wasn't as yet developed enough to enchant snow, it did attract the attention of a few nearby snow hares. They decided to help her and it didn't take long before they found the bunny cowering, cold and scared, under some bushes. Both bunny and girl were overjoyed and grateful as they could return home together, the bunny happily snuggled up in her arms.
This egg is cold and seems to have the texture of snow.
You watch as the egg slowly reshapes itself, not quite hatching, only shedding the outermost layer of ice, until finally a snow hare hatchling emerges, its little nose twitching as it takes in you and its surroundings. Snow hare hatchlings live to have fun. Nothing delights them more than lying in wait, disguised as a pile of snow, only to reform and jump up to surprise any- and everyone passing by, be they innocent students, a professor carrying a stack of books, or even a grumpy old dragon.
Snow hares do not need food, they gain their strength from the snow and ice and are the most active during winter. As spring approaches, most of them prefer to travel north into the Arkene, although some choose to remain at the Keep where powerful enchantments are set in place to create a suitably snowy environment for them.
