As strange as it may seem, brujine hatchlings are deeply attached to their magis. You can never leave your sleeping quarters without your little brujine tagging along. Its howls and cries are usually so loud you can hear them from rooms away. The brujine hatchling throws such big tantrums that it's easier to have it with you all the time. Comfortably fitting inside a pocket, the hatchling will sleep soundlessly in your coat the entire day as long as it feels your presence nearby. Once the night has fallen, the brujine will leave your side to hunt for termites and other insects. You try to feed it yourself, but the hatchling always insists on hunting on its own. As cute as it may be, the brujine hatchling is not a creature one would want to disturb, with its sharp fangs easily piercing skin.
The brujines are closely related to the brujes, their most notable being their small size. Many legends surround the brujines, each with its seed of truth. People from Turrill cover the tales of brujine in mystery. They say the brujines walk the earth only in the darkest hours of the night, howling ominously and spreading paranoia between those still awake. Those who hear the barks of a brujine will surely lose their mind and join the creatures in their nightly haunt. On the other hand, those who live near the desert of Etain tell tales of cunning creatures that leave messages of the future in the sand. For many years it was thought the brujine held great magical powers, and some still hold to this belief. In truth, there is little magic to these creatures. However, what they lack in magic, they make up for in strength, agility, and loyalty.
