This beautiful goldfish resembles the sands it so loves to swim above. As it ages, the fish's scales will become even brighter, making it a lovely creature to behold. But adulthood is in the future for this companion, and this little goldfish has nothing more on its mind than play. It swims about quickly, enjoying itself by jumping high out of the water, showing off its incredible agility. Golfish hatchlings are usually seen with the krakens and leviathans, and are extremely playful and always up to something. When not engaged in one of their many games, goldfish hatchlings can be difficult to find. This is because they love to wander off and see what the world has to offer. They explore everywhere they can, as every body of water near The Keep is full of exits for the larger creatures to find their way to deeper waters.
Goldfish are gentle, patient animals, found mostly in rivers or streams, though they can travel most bodies of water. They are restricted to fresh waters, and are found in all the lakes surrounding The Keep. Commoners and nobles alike keep them as pets, in fine glass bowls and tanks. Magi who consider themselves wise in the ways of the water generally keep at least one goldfish as a pet, and consult them on matters of lakes and rivers. Along with possessing much knowledge, goldfish help locate eggs beneath the waters and help heal both animals and people. They are like their koi friends in that they have beautiful appearances, and are covered in beautiful, delicate scales. Just one of these scales can ease someone's emotional pain, or help them heal quickly. These fishes are graceful companions, and have bright spirits to match their golden colors. Like the koi fish, they are generally overlooked, but their subtle magic is extremely valuable. The owner of any such fish will find that if they swim with their sweet pet something interesting happens. The goldfish companion enables them to breath under water for short periods of time. This aids a magi greatly in searches for rare eggs beneath the waves, or just in exploring deep waters.
