Golden Arkenian goslings, unlike other avians, hatch as dry and fluffy as can be straight out of the egg. This might be due to the intense body heat that they radiate as soon as they hatch. It is not quite hot enough for magis to classify them as fire creatures, but they are uncomfortably warm to the touch, and their feet melt snow as they walk. Unlike their cousins who are born in frigid temperatures, goslings who were born in a warmer climate seem to have more control over their internal body heat, and need not eat snow to maintain control over it. There is also no risk of spontaneous combustion for these hardy goslings.

Golden geese are migratory creatures and in spring through summer they can be found all over the world. Come winter, they will travel to wherever they nested originally, be it in the cold north of Arkene like their cousins or in the tropical southern climates. There they raise their young, and if they choose to raise their young in an area that is too cold, golden geese can hatch and raise normal looking goslings. Despite their resistance to the unfortunate fate that can befall some Arkenian goslings, golden geese are still incredibly rare, valued for both their beautiful plumage and for their taste. As a result, adult geese are extremely protective of not only their eggs, but of their chosen nesting area, and these creatures can be especially vicious when defending their eggs and goslings. When it is not breeding season, these geese are loyal companions who enjoy traveling with their magi, and their temperature regulation abilities work for their magi even while the goose soars hundreds of feet overhead.
