Juvenile iwan crystalwings are at their most vulnerable right after they hatch. Although already able to breathe fire, they are small and easily snatched up by passing hawks or eagles. They can give any predator a nasty nip or burn if they like, and if lucky enough to be dropped, will lazily glide to the ground and scuttle off to safety. As they grow older, their scales become harder and their weight helps them avoid predation.

A tropical species originating in the Candle Archipelagos, iwan crystalwings can be found throughout the Ixan Jungle and wherever it is warm and wet in the east. They are resplendent creatures, frequently found lounging in the sun and feasting on ripe fruit. They're too large to move without help from a strong companion, and with only a few predators in their native range, iwan crystalwings tend to grow complacent around people. As a result, they will often wander into houses and onto ships, readily making their homes there whether it is convenient for the owner of the domicile or vessel in question.
