Only an hour after they're born, skywreaths fluff out their beautiful plumage and take to the skies. They begin their lives by drifting on air currents lower to the ground, enjoying warm thermals that buoy them above waving fields of grass. Their long, light bodies and enormous wings make flight easy, and they are loathe to return to the ground. Without a magi to call them back, they never would.

Skywreaths spend all of their lives in the sky, buoyed by air currents and their own expert knowledge of flight. While those who bond with magi are content to stay in one place, wild skywreaths are migratory. The reason for this is their diet - skywreaths consume dust particles and pollen from the air, and thus they always like to be where spring has sprung. Magi can grow flowers or create dust for their skywreaths, as the creatures don't require much. They never eat enough to prevent the growth of new plant life. But in areas where Skywreaths are common, the skies smell and feel cleaner and more pure. Those who have ill-health sometimes move to areas where skywreaths are common. Skywreaths will also travel over cities, clearing up the smoke created from lanterns in town squares, and groups of skywreaths will also clear the air of ash after a wildfire in a forest or grassland. In some places, skywreaths are heralds of spring, and in others, they are a sign of hope after disaster.
