Even the magi who care for the elusive sintervos sometimes wonder if they might have imagined their existence, especially in the heat of the summer months when the foxes are nowhere to be seen. Sintervos don't appear to have the ability to turn invisible like the stories suggest, but they are notoriously good at hiding, their long skinny bodies allow them to climb up and through almost anything. Chimneys are no problem, even for a newly hatched juvenile. No one is quite sure what the staple diet of a sintervos is, but they seem to appreciate milk and have a bit of a sweet tooth for cookies and cookie crumbs. One might imagine that their crafty nature would mean that the cookie larders are ransacked every winter. However, while the battle to protect the Solstice Festival dessert from young sangue dracul, dulcine amagnae, and savis mice is ongoing, sintervos seem to not play much of a part. On the whole, they are very well-restrained, even the younger hatchlings, and they seldom to anything that makes the people and creatures around them unhappy.

Winter is a rough time of year in the north, with light vanishing for days at a time and many creatures gone much further south to wait out the colder, snowier nights. However, even in the far north, people find ways to cheer themselves up with tales about the sintervos. These creatures are incredibly shy, considered little more than a myth even by the denizens of Synara and other major cities, but the northern folk of the Arkene still take care to leave milk and crumbs next to the fireplace in the winter for the sintervos. Parents often tell their children that the sintervos is invisible throughout the year, occasionally checking in on households to see if the children are behaving. On the Solstice, the sintervos become visible and get to work delivering presents to those who were good throughout the year. If the children were bad, their parents warn they'll be visited by cruel demon creatures that like to destroy presents instead.
