Satura #838


Found deep in both Raza and Ixan jungles, the satura is both an omen of ill tidings and of good harvest, depending on who you talk to. Nocturnal and silent, they often spook those who are out after dark by passing close by, the only warning of their appearance the ghostly blue of their flames. This fire is usually cold, and harmless to those that the satura trusts, but can be heated almost instantly to allow the satura to defend itself. Satura feathers can be used by magi to make themselves silent, muffling footsteps and voices, and some students at the Keep have been known to use them to sneak into the kitchen late at night to steal sweets.


This feathered green egg has wisps of blue flame rising from its shell.


Hatchling satura are surprisingly ugly for the first few months of their lives, before their feathers grow in to cover their green skin. They spend most of their time sleeping, preferably cuddled up with nestmates, parents, or inside a magi's shirt. Their fire and ability to create silence don't appear until their feathers are fully grown in, and before that satura hatchlings should be kept in a warm area. Despite their small size, satura hatchlings are noisy creatures and can make a large variety of sounds, from chirps to grunts and gurgles. When old enough, but not yet ready to fly, satura hatchlings entertain themselves by climbing everything in sight, and particularly seem to enjoy sitting on the highest thing in the room to look down on and judge people walking by.


An adult satura may look large, but the majority of their mass is wings and feathers. When fully grown, an adult satura is capable of spreading silence over a large area, and is almost impossible to hear when flying. Those in the jungle will sometimes be able to see them flying through the trees, trailing blue fire, but when not actively hunting, they spend most of their time sitting in hollows and sleeping. Satura that live with magi can be quite affectionate and enjoy grooming their magi's hair, but there are some places with people who have lingering doubts about just what a satura is thinking behind its wide yellow eyes.
