Cytrinae hatchlings are not particularly attractive, with mottled grey feathers and an ungainly gait. Their wings are too small to fly and they haven't yet developed the balance between their bird-like forelimbs and back paws. In the water, however, they are quite content, using their rudder-like tail to power through the rivers and streams of the Keep. They much prefer cold water, where their dense feathering keeps them safe and warm. When not swimming, they are very attached to their magi, and will clumsily follow them around the keep.

Only the hardiest, most determined travelers who can brave the cold of Boreus will spot the elusive cytrinae. These beautiful creatures prefer to dwell either alone or with their chosen mate, making nests of snow on the banks of icy rivers. Cytrinae mate for life, and each cytrinae will devise a special call for their chosen partner. They spend a lifetime perfecting their song, and the sonorous call of a cytrinae will echo along the cold tundra of the northern region. Some have said it will lure people toward it, only for them to fall through thin ice and freeze in icy waters. These legends have been mostly debunked, though the song of a cytrinae is undeniably beautiful, and the power of the sound waves they create can even shatter ice.
