Earth prism foxes are strong for their size, and can control the rock and earth beneath their feet. They love to tunnel and dig burrows, much like non-magical foxes, but their tunnels can stretch for miles underground. They prefer to construct their burrow and stay there, not keen on leaving their home, and thus they tend to bond with magi who also prefer to stay in one place and focus on something. Oddly, most magi who bond with an Earth prism fox prefer the study of history.
The study of what makes a magi a magi, and what makes a creature magical or not, has existed for as long as anyone can remember. Magic isn't thought to have a specific origin. But many researchers believe the key to an even deeper understanding of what magic is and where it comes from may be found in the Prism Fox. These creatures possess each elemental magic in its basic form, and are able to use their specific element to perform many feats of magic. They are incredibly useful to pick out young magi who may not where their strengths lie. They are even used to find individuals who may not know they have magic and bring them to the keep. Some magi who wish to excel in a certain type of magic will spend their time near a prism fox of the desired affinity, hoping their element will rub off on them. Regardless of their elemental affinity, all Prism Foxes seem to possess keen intellect and are patient and understanding with magi. Some magi think that if they could just find a way to communicate with them, they could discover the secrets of magic.
