Much like the adults, young nulorns are cautious creatures. They usually remain deep in the forest, searching for vegetation to snack on. Sometimes, though, their own curiosity gets the better of them, and they leave to explore The Keep. Should one spot a nulorn hatchling, it is best to remain perfectly still and let the hatchling approach on its own. They are very shy around humans, and if one moves too suddenly, they will run off. Offering a few treats will help lure a nulorn hatchling near - they love apples, mushrooms, and berries. If the hatchling accepts the treat, a friendship has been established. Other nulorn hatchlings usually take this as a good sign, and come out to play.

Although these creatures prefer the northern parts of the world, they are sometimes seen around the castle during the winter storms. Tundra nulorns are taken out of the Borean plains by blizzards as they tend to follow in their wake. On these occasions, most magi keep their distance from the creatures. Although nulorns are peaceful companions, they are wary of humans, and will quickly disappear back into the plains if bothered. Young nulorns are less cautious, and charge into the water and snow banks at once, eager to swim and play. These companions are excellent swimmers, and can cross lakes if they so desire. If a magi has a very close bond with their nurlorn companion, the nulorn may even allow them to ride upon their backs. This is a speedy form of travel, both on land and water, as nulorns are very powerful creatures. They know almost every tree that grows in the woods, and can travel at great speed. Even deep snows do not stop them, as their wide hooves act as snowshoes. It is during the cold seasons that these companions focus all of their attention on their survival. The only food available are the few leaves that cling to the trees, and nulorns will even eat bark. Very few creatures dare to attack them, but it is in the depths of winter that they are most vulnerable. Even then, only a large pack of wolves stand any chance at bringing down a nulorn.
