An adult Arcadian caprichthys is a surprisingly easy creature to manage, as its nature is to be friendly. The creatures form strong bonds with their owners, preferring the company of others to isolation and quickly growing friendly with anyone who wanders into its territory. The creatures seem to emanate whatever feeling a person cherishes, often happiness, confidence, and curiosity, though they have been known to promote feelings like love in those around them as well. The mermaids who study at the Keep love the Arcadian caprichthys and will spend long hours with them, chatting with each other as they groom and feed them. It is an exceedingly rare honor to be given one of these creatures by the mer-folk, though most Arcadian caprichthys are from older lines that have been with the magi for years. The mermaids claim that these are a less exciting variety, turned docile from their time away from the sea, though they don't seem to mind them and still enjoy visiting them when they visit Lake Lakira. The caprichthys are more than happy for the company.

The caprichthys are unique companions of the mer-folk, seldom seen for the mer-folk are secretive and live in caves deep underwater. What little is known about their caprichthys usually comes from abandoned undersea temples where the more frightening of the species, the Hadean variety, live. The creatures are a variant of capricorn, bred specifically for the purpose of guarding. As such, they are larger, stronger, and smarter, with heavier hooves and longer horns to frighten off intruders. While encounters with caprichthys are rare and tensions with the mer-folk remain high, their eggs are occasionally given as gifts to magi the mer-folk trust. Arcadian caprichthys are the more docile variety, said to guard places of import in living mer-folk cities. In practice, they seem to act more as guides and greeters than true guards, as there are rarely threats for them to protect their companions against thanks to the mermaids' powerful water magic.
