Frigaes reindeer hatchlings are happy little creatures, constantly running about and finding the fun in everything. Even at this young age they are growing the antlers their kind is famous for. Older reindeer take care to teach hatchlings the effects of their magic, and so accidents are kept to a minimum. If something is mistakenly frozen, an adult calidaes reindeer will come over and carefully thaw the ice. When one's frigaes calf is young, it is best to approach them with a warming spell at the ready, just in case. As they age, these hatchlings are able to control their powers more easily, and begin to learn to levitate. Frigaes reindeer like to hold contests against one another, seeing who can get the highest. Every once in a while a hatchling takes a tumble, and is quite embarrassed.

If someone is purposely looking for a reindeer, it is unlikely that they will find one. Like their kirin brethren, these creatures can move silently if they wish to, leaving no tracks behind. How they accomplish this feat is quite different, though. Calidaes and frigaes reindeer are capable of walking above treetops, their hooves moving as if the air beneath them is solid. Wild reindeer take to the air whenever anyone is near to avoid being seen. This power does not extend to flight, though, despite the wishful stories of some village children. Levitating tires these companions out, and they cannot remain airborne indefinitely. Reindeer at the castle use this skill mostly to find more delectable leaves at the top of trees. For the most part, these companions are content with remaining on the ground, foraging for food like any other creature. However, if one does manage to glimpse a sight of a reindeer in the woods, it is impossible to mistake for a normal deer. Frigaes reindeer have fascinating antlers that seem to be formed from ice. These antlers are stronger than any icicle, though, and protect them from predators. It is best never to touch the antlers, or to only do so for a fleeting moment, while wearing thick gloves. Frigaes reindeer antlers are colder than any snowbank or spell. Anything these creatures touch for long will freeze completely and become brittle, shattering with a light touch.
