Water prism foxes are relaxed creatures, able to adapt to any situation. They control water in any form, and can do things like call rain or even manipulate plant growth by controlling the water in the ground. When it rains, they seem to shimmer as they move, as though they are somehow traveling through the raindrops as they fall. In northern climates, they can pass seamlessly through ice. Magi who use water for scrying often make water prism foxes their companions, and it is thought these foxes can see anywhere that water has traveled.
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.
