From a dull beginning, the hadros crystalwing matures into a beautiful adult, prized for not only their horns and feathers, but also for their rose-coloured gems and gleaming scales. Although they lose their camouflage as adults, they're still large enough that most predators think twice before attacking - especially as hadros crystalwings live in herds and always have a lookout or three watching for sharp-toothed trouble. Adult hadros crystalwings are attentive parents and though shy, they seem to enjoy a trusted magi quietly spending time near them. Hadros crystalwings can make a variety of sounds through their horns, and on a quiet morning their hums and haunting cries can be heard for miles. If forced into a fight, they can protect themselves not only with their thick tail, but also the large sharp sickle claw on each foot, which is otherwise theorized to help them break open rotting tree trunks for the fungi inside.

Hadros crystalwings are found near bodies of water, ranging from tiny streams to the edges of great oceans, but the greatest population is concentrated within the Ixan Jungle. They're mildly obsessed with staying clean and can often be seen splashing around in shallow water, as they're too heavy to swim. Large but placid, they often congregate along the open shores of rivers to graze on bushes and small trees, and keep a close eye out for their natural predator, the tiexos ixsu. They often live in large family groups where the adults take turns looking after the hatchlings. A hadros crystalwing's horns are delicate and used for communication over long distances; the tips of their wings are made of the same glass-like material and serve to help the hadros display, especially when looking for a mate. This doesn't mean they're helpless, however; besides their size and weight, they have long powerful tails with a gem-studded fan that can deliver a nasty blow to unprotected flesh.
