When fully grown, flaming comets are awe-inspiring fiery shapeshifters. They will often take on the form of other creatures and as they are more than a little vain, they especially enjoy showing off their skills to any large crowd. During summer and fall festivals it is common to see groups of flaming comets dancing in the air above the tents, gleefully screeching at small children who are particularly fond of the pretty designs the flaming comets draw in the night sky. Parents and those in charge of fire safety are less fond of flaming comets, and it's not unusual to see a magi and their comet creature being told off for being careless of the dangers of dry brush and sparks. Flaming comets must be trained lest they accidentally burn and scorch everything around them, but this should be done carefully. A badly trained flaming comet will find itself confined to a fireplace where it may sulk among the logs until it learns to be more careful of its surroundings.
"The Artificer's Association is pleased to present one of the lost works of Odan Galopin. While much of Galopin's research was destroyed in an explosion, a surviving book containing a list of ingredients and a ritual that is noted as being inspired by the Arkai magis has recently been restored by the library staff at the Keep. The book was quite badly damaged and it took many years for members of the Artificer's Association to reconstruct the exact method required to bring these creatures into existence. It remains to be seen if more of Galopin's fascinating work will be recovered but for now, the creation of Odan Galopin's Flaming Comet is restricted to high ranking members of the Association." You grin as you tuck the note that came with your new flaming comet into a book. Rumor says saltpeter and meteorite iron are needed for the creation of a flaming comet and while you are not yet permitted to undertake the ritual, nothing is stopping you from getting an early start gathering those materials.
