A paper butterfly egg doesn't hatch, more so, it reforms into a small caterpillar. It requires paper to grow at this stage and will eat any paper it can find. They need an almost constant supply of paper, as if they go too long without eating, they begin to regress back into an egg. If this happens, the egg could literally crumble away into nothing. It is always a good idea to keep any important papers stored away as they will become lunch if left unattended around one of these caterpillars. Once it has eaten enough paper, it will reform into a paper butterfly.
One of the more easily craftable creatures from the artificers association, the paper butterfly is perfect for children who love art. If a magi draws onto the paper used to craft the egg, the image will appear on the wings of the adult butterfly, making them truly unique to the magi who made them. Some magis hold the belief that if you write a wish upon its wings and set it free, that wish will come true. Children love paper butterflies, often time, it is the first spell a child will learn.
