Scarf Wyrm #1468


For a magi who likes to show off their companions and wishes to be warm and stylish while doing so, there is no better companion than a scarf wyrm. Capable of changing their colors at will, scarf wyrms take great delight at riding around on their magi's shoulders and head as living accessories, changing colors on demand to match their magi's fancy. Scarf wyrms have bellies covered in wonderfully soft fur, though they have far finer control over color shifting the warm scales on their back. Their shed fur is collected to make wonderfully soft and warm clothing. It usually takes the cast off fur of multiple wyrms to make a single shirt, and the fur stops changing color once shed, which means the clothes often have bizarre color combinations. Therefore, for magi who care about appearances, the whole wyrm makes for a much better article of clothing. Some magi delight in the strange colors and patterns that result from the varied shed furs, though, and compete over who has the ugliest one.


This frilled egg is so fluffy and warm. Holding it makes you feel so cozy you don’t want to put it down.


Few things are as pleasant on a cold winter day as having a scarf wyrm hatchling in one's lap. They are placid hatchlings, content to stay still for hours in exchange for scratches behind their frills, and as their bellies are covered in fluff and they give off a gentle heat of their own, they make an excellent tiny lap blanket. Hatchlings are not yet very adept at controlling their patterning, and so will sometimes end up with strange color combinations and patterns on their scales. Some magi make a competition of showing off the most unsightly pattern on a hatchling they can find, to the delight of everyone involved, even the hatchling.


Scarf wyrms grow to be very long, and are aptly named, as they make for wonderfully soft, always warm living scarves. Some prefer to be just scarves, but others will perch their upper body on their magi's head, serving the function of a fluffy hat too. Adults have learned to control their patterns deliberately, and take delight in changing their patterns, sometimes shifting so slowly and subtly that if it weren't for the different end result, a magi would think no change had occurred. Other times they shift patterns quite quickly, deliberately showing off their ability in mesmerizing changes. Style-conscious magi will teach their wyrms specific patterns, whether to better match a wardrobe or make a big statement, and the wyrms will happily learn and comply.
