The brujines are closely related to the brujes, their most notable being their small size. Many legends surround the brujines, each with its seed of truth. People from Turrill cover the tales of brujine in mystery. They say the brujines walk the earth only in the darkest hours of the night, howling ominously and spreading paranoia between those still awake. Those who hear the barks of a brujine will surely lose their mind and join the creatures in their nightly haunt. On the other hand, those who live near the desert of Etain tell tales of cunning creatures that leave messages of the future in the sand. For many years it was thought the brujine held great magical powers, and some still hold to this belief. In truth, there is little magic to these creatures. However, what they lack in magic, they make up for in strength, agility, and loyalty.
This striped egg barks constantly.
As strange as it may seem, brujine hatchlings are deeply attached to their magis. You can never leave your sleeping quarters without your little brujine tagging along. Its howls and cries are usually so loud you can hear them from rooms away. The brujine hatchling throws such big tantrums that it's easier to have it with you all the time. Comfortably fitting inside a pocket, the hatchling will sleep soundlessly in your coat the entire day as long as it feels your presence nearby. Once the night has fallen, the brujine will leave your side to hunt for termites and other insects. You try to feed it yourself, but the hatchling always insists on hunting on its own. As cute as it may be, the brujine hatchling is not a creature one would want to disturb, with its sharp fangs easily piercing skin.
Even when it reaches adulthood, the brujine is small for its size. Still feeding on termites, your brujine is more independent than it used to be, often leaving your side to explore the Keep's surroundings. Although it sometimes sleeps outside the brujine loves it when you give it old clothes. It piles them up and makes a burrow, happy to be around you. Although it appears to lack any sort of magic, the brujine makes for a valuable companion. Its loyalty has no limits, the brujine always being ready to protect those who face harm. With its sharp fangs, the brujine will never hesitate to bite those who threaten it. With a sensitive nose, the brujine is able to find anyone no matter the distance or the obstacles that come in its path.
