The accipito hatchling is quite the handful to keep up with. Now that it has hatched, it no longer requires high temperatures and will happily go anywhere and everywhere with no ill effect. If it feels threatened or gets startled, it defends itself with blasts of heat. While not strong enough to cause serious burns, they hurt enough to make most other creatures wary of the hatchling.

Accipito crystalwings are creatures from the deepest caverns of Nareau. They live in groups of several dozen creatures that aggressively defend their home cavern and young against outside intrusions. Accipito crystalwing caverns can be identified easily from a distance; the crystalwings heat up their home cavern to a temperature barely bearable to humans. Just passing through one of those caverns can cause damage similar to a sunburn. This temperature is required for accipito eggs to develop correctly. If they are kept at lower temperatures for long, the hatchling will die in the egg. Therefore, growing them at the Keep requires special chambers that are kept heated by fires or appropriate magic. Accipito crystalwings grow almost to the size of a human, although they are much lighter thanks to their slender build.
