You can feel the bright orange eyes of a wyrm follow you as you pass by its bed. The little one lazily nips at your heel as you come a bit too close, but is too sleepy to rise and wreak havoc upon your socks. These hatchlings are known to be mischievous and too playful for their own good. A magi must keep a good eye on a wyrm hatchling lest it gets into trouble, as they are so wont to do. A small growl from behind makes you turn your head. Your gaze settles on the bed just in time to see the little wyrm twist onto its back, paws comically extended upward. With another snort, it settles into a new position and drifts back to sleep. You slowly turn and quietly continue on your way so as not to interrupt its slumber.

While these creatures appear to be draconian, any knowledgeable magi would inform you that these creatures are in fact wyrms, recognizable as such due to their lack of wings and their size. Slightly smaller than dragons but equally powerful, wyrms specialize in magics of the earth, specifically involving rocks and minerals. Even their appearances closely resemble the stones they covet and control – their scales are extremely hard and cold to the touch, almost impenetrable. The name "diamond wyrm" was humorously attached to them due to the texture and color of their scales, and the name stuck. They themselves are not that amusing, as they are extremely capable predators and do not possess particularly good temperament. Although rather antisocial, wyrms are fiercely protective when it comes to their magi companions and share a close bond. Any creature foolish enough to challenge a wyrm will quickly come to realize the foolishness of their actions when stones rise from the earth against them.
