From the moment they're born, the prism fox's affinity is apparent in the color of their lustrous coat. Like many young creatures, these foxes are insatiably curious and full of energy. Coupled with their magic, they can be quite the handful. Young foxes are irresistibly drawn to magi who share their affinity, and are eager to bond with anyone who possesses magic. They love observing spells being performed, either by their own parents or by human magi they find.
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.
