Any magi looking to raise a razan kalistavri must first ensure they have an adequate supply of meat available. Young hatchlings are incredibly food motivated and do not yet understand the difference between common lizards and companion rose imps. Fortunately for the imps they are rather clumsy hunters, though more than a few magi have had moments of terror watching a flock of hungry juvenile razan kalistavri hurtle full speed towards the rose garden in an attempt at a snack.
Making their homes in the Razan jungles, these small birds can often be seen hunting young anaugi and other lizards in the trees nears rivers and streams. They are also common companions among the makers of staffs and wands for the use of their feathers during the enchanting process, in particular staffs intended for use in battle. This is because the feathers of the kalistavri absorb and contain the magic of any magical creatures they eat, thus allowing the birds to wield fire magic to protect themselves and others. The more magic they absorb, the stronger the enchantments that can be created, thus making them valuable companions. This is not without drawbacks though, as magi who wish to raise kalistavri as companions must be careful to train them to only eat wild anaugi or other non magical food, lest heartbreak follow. Some magi have begun conducting experiments to see if kalistavri can absorb the effects of magical potions but so far the results have been inconclusive.
