Eshmeri hatchlings are born nearly helpless, and magi will have to hand-rear these creatures with extra love and care. They need to be fed mashed greens with a dropper, and must be kept swaddled and warm either with soft blankets or with fire magic. They spend most of their time snuggled against their magi, happy to listen to the sound of their heartbeat.

An explorer named Talie was first to discover these creatures, and their unique magic was discovered as soon as Talie announced it to the world. The magic of the eshmeri is said to be imprinted upon anything someone writes if the creature can hear the heartbeat of whoever is writing it. As the eshmeri listens, the emotion of the letter writer will be poured into the words, and that emotion will be experienced by anyone reading it. Anyone who read Talie's writings was filled with elation and the wonder of new discovery, as though the emotion had been imprinted onto the books. Even now, when people search for inspiration, they read Talie's letters and observations of the eshmeri. The most mysterious writing, however, is the one about the white eshmeri. No emotion colors it. But the writing itself claims that a white eshmeri will disappear for a time, and when it returns, it will bring with it strong emotion intended for a specific recipient, along with a sense of peace. Some say this means they bring messages from those who have passed on.
