Reaching adulthood, temple giraffes calm down considerably, though they sometimes can be quite playful, but you will most often find them grazing and lazing about with other temple giraffes. They make for good traveling companions and some magis prefer them to meldops when crossing the Etain Desert. In the wild, temple giraffes are often skittish around magis and will disappear at the sight of one. This makes finding them fairly difficult unless you know what you are looking for. Despite this, they have been known to help lost travelers find their way in the desert and on very rare occasions, they may even gift the magi with an egg.

Towering over the grasslands surrounding the Etain Desert, the temple giraffes are easily recognizable from other types of giraffes by the golden band that adorns their long graceful neck. They are highly social creatures, traveling in small, but close-knit herds of up to ten or twenty. Because of their size and power, not many creatures will ever try to harm them. If threatened, they are able to use the heat of their surroundings to their advantage by creating a heat shield that will surround them. This shield, from the outside, looks like nothing more than a shimmering haze that all but makes them vanish from view, but if someone or something should happen to touch this shield, they will come away with severe burns, discouraging predators. Sometimes a temple giraffe is born with a dark coloration. No one is quite sure as to why this is, but these giraffes tend to be less sociable, preferring to be left alone. Dark giraffes are more aggressive than their sandy colored counterparts; standing and fighting rather than fleeing. If pushed too far, they are able to ignite the air, creating a great wall of flames that surrounds them.
