Newly hatched, vernal butterfly caterpillars are so small they are barely able to be seen with the naked eye. They eat continuously though, growing each day until they are as large as a man's finger. Once they have had their fill, they burrow into the ground to await the next spring. Most magi try to avoid these caterpillars as their power is not yet fully functional; they can make a magi confused, angry, sad and happy, all within a minute.

Wild vernal butterflies can not be caught and will leave anything that tries extremely confused for several minutes, or even hours. It is not uncommon to see a young magi who tried to capture one, wandering around asking who they are, where they are, or even talking to paintings. If raised from an egg however, they will sit atop their magi's head, or hand, giving off a slight heat from their bodies. Vernal butterflies need light to be seen. In shadows they fade, becoming barely visible. In darkness, they fade away completely. If left in the dark for too long though, they will die. At night the butterflies can be found around any light source they can find. The butterflies leave the Keep late in summer, signaling the beginning of Autumn. No one is quite sure as to where vernal butterflies originated from. Some say they are made from magic, others say they were transported here from far away lands across the ocean.
