Life prism foxes are stoic and unflappable, and being near one brings a sense of calm. Innately drawn to anyone who is injured or ill, they are skilled at healing, and can heal cuts or remove poison from people or other animals. They are also useful for magic related to fertility, whether it be plant growth or aiding in endeavors related to childbirth. They are favored by magi who prefer to observe things in their natural environment, or by healers who value their abilities.
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.
