Lilias hatchlings are dull compared to their parents, the petals on their wings and bodies mere buds that do little to help them get nourishment from the sun. As hatchlings, they cannot fly either. Instead they must learn to dive and hunt underwater. They can eat kelp and reeds, but prefer tadpoles or other small water-dwelling creatures for more energy. When not hunting beneath the waves, they like to sit in the sun as well, as though waiting for the day their petals will grow.
Lilias crystalwings are beautiful creatures, and are always seen with their petal wings spread, soaking up the sun. They require no food as adults, and will happily live on just sunlight and water. Unlike many other species of crystalwings, Lilia prefer to swim rather than fly, and the speckles on their wings help them hide in the shimmering waters. They care deeply for their young, and will spend much time helping them learn to hunt for tadpoles in the tropical lakes and ponds they commonly dwell in. Rarely, these creatures will fly as a group to scout out a new location, perhaps seeking a safe place to raise their young together.
