Platergé hatchlings are small and soft, and when properly cared for, adorably plump. They are well-loved companions, as while they seem to be less associated with fortuitous happenings than their Lakiran cousins, carrying one around still inspires much joy in those caring for one. Platergé are generally banned from classrooms at the Keep during exams, since their focusing aura potentially skews the results, but this doesn't keep the occasional student from trying to smuggle their hatchling in anyway, if only for the morale boost of having a cute, soft friend with them.

Platergés are closely related to the friendly platypuses of Lake Lakira, and considered similarly lucky, though they are less gregarious and do not lay their eggs directly into the Stream. While those that have a magi companion often visit and mingle in Lake Lakira, they seem to originate from Triathe, where wild platergé are a common sight in the great lake, and often taken as pets by the famed architects and inventors there. This is because in addition to granting good luck to those they like, their presence seems to grant sharper focus and insights to anyone around. In addition, if it can be persuaded to do so, a gentle scratch from the spurs on male platergé usually leads to fits of manic inspiration and such focus that the result is almost always exquisite craftsmanship. However, platergé also use these spurs as a defense, and the same venom applied by an irate platergé with much more force tends to cause debilitating seizures, on top of the potentially grievous mundane injuries caused by the slashing spurs.
