Carmeli are a favored sight at the Keep. Whether they be traveling with entertainers who come by the Keep to celebrate with magi, or are raised by a caring magi, their presence brings happiness to any who see them. This happiness can last if the carmelus gifts an individual with one of their feathery ribbons, which are shed twice per year. The gift seems to be one of ritual for the carmelus, who will dance near their chosen recipient and adorn them with the ribbon, weaving it around their shoulders and head. From then on, whenever the person touches the ribbon, they will feel a deep sense of joy that will chase away any gloom. The magic of the ribbon cannot be felt by any but those the carmelus choose to decorate with it, and those chosen always feel honored.

With footsteps that sound like festive drums, carmelus can be found in many regions of the world, from the sands of the Etain desert to the snows at the peaks of the Alasre glacier. With their bright coloration and tassels made of colorful bits of skin and feathers, they are easy to spot as they travel in herds of happy, frolicking individuals. While they can be tamed for use in work, it is not considered the best idea. Light-hearted by nature, they are apt to break into a gracefully, swaying dance while being ridden, or take the most scenic, roundabout routes rather than the direct path if given messages to deliver. Domestic carmeli are more commonly used in traveling circuses or other forms of entertainment, where their innate sense of joy can easily spread to others. Since they can travel anywhere, they're known for bringing happiness to people living in remote regions
