Sideraes hatchlings may appear young, but it is impossible to know how old they truly are. One's young sideraes has probably aged more than once and been reborn countless times. Perhaps it is this cycle that causes sideraes hatchlings to act more mature than other hatchlings. Instead of inventing games and socializing, sideraes young are solitary creatures, focusing on finding food. A magi with one of these fascinating companions should not to expect them to be very friendly. Though if one is ever walking alongside the ocean's shore, their sideraes hatchling will follow alongside, offering silent companionship from the water's edge.

If someone wanders down by the shore at night, they may be able to see a sideraes. These creatures can be found throughout the oceans and seas, and emit a faint glow. Sideraes are beautiful creatures. Their lack of bones allows them to squeeze through any opening, so they are never trapped. Since sideraes are incapable of moving quickly they rely on stinging their enemies. These stings are agonizing, making it necessary for humans to be wary when swimming in the ocean. For the most part, these companions are content to slowly float around, feeding on plankton and crustaceans. These companions cannot survive without saltwater, so a small corner of Lake Lakira is enchanted to accommodate them. There are also many old charms to allow one to breath under saltwater for a short period, so ocean companions must have been common even long ago. No one knows how long sideraes have existed, but there is one decaying bit of parchment claiming a magi witnessed their arrival. Though everyone knows the story, and younger students are eager to hear it, it is considered myth. A few eccentric teachers believe the tale, but most do not. Supposedly two stars, one red and one blue hurtled into the sea. A nearby magi who saw the event rushed to the water's edge. Instead of a star, the man saw a glowing jellyfish that quickly sped away into deeper waters. Those who don't believe the tale like to point out that this happened on the night of the new year. Not only are there many firelight displays around this time of the year, but it is common for older magi to imbibe alcohol. It's likely the man was more than a little drunk. Sideraes also love to watch firelights, and flock to wherever the explosions take place.
