Lighteater Fish #1084


Lighteater fish are frightening to look at, with sharp fangs, powerful forked tails, and vicious horns. Light also seems to disappear around them, and they are constantly cloaked in dimness. This is due to their choice of food - light. They will consume the light around them, and are drawn toward powerful light sources, including the light of flames, magically conjured light, or even the sun itself. Of course, their preferred food source is the glowing ring of the lightbringer fish, and care must be taken to keep lighteaters from constantly targeting them. Lighteater fish can live in both freshwater and saltwater, but are somewhat hard to find due to how they consume the light around them. They tend to live in the darkest crevices deep beneath the ocean and within dark caves at the bottom of lakes.


This egg has rough scales.


Your creature hatches hungry, and it's easy to tell as the area of the water around your hatchling begins to grow dimmer. Despite its appetite and fearsome appearance, lighteater fish hatchlings are generally very friendly. They enjoy swimming with their magi, and can use their powerful tails and long bodies to leap from the water and catch a bite of the sun's rays.


Keeping a lighteater fish fed is an interesting prospect. They don't appear to need to eat often, but providing magical light will make them happier and even more friendly. They act somewhat inconsistently, preferring to hide and consume the light from the locations they stay in so that they remain in darkness, but also appear attracted to sources of light. This can include their magi if they create magical orbs of light for them to consume. Lighteaters will even do tricks, leaping out of the water and doing somersaults or creating waves with their powerful tails on their magi's request. The reward of magical light is their favorite.
