When an inferno hound egg hatches, it is with a burst of flames, leaving behind a pile of bones and a small spark inside what appears to be a small rib cage. This spark is crucial and it must be tended carefully as if it should go out, the hound will not grow. This spark needs to be tended until it becomes a small flame, at which point the bones will fuse together and form a small hatchling. A hatchling iInferno hound needs plenty of bones to eat and a nice fire to sleep in as they grow. Hatchlings are a lot more docile than adults and it is at this point that a magi must take care to tame them properly as once they grow into adults, it is nearly an impossible task.
One of the more dangerous creatures that roam the Etain Desert, these skeletal creatures are best to be avoided. Inferno hounds are easily recognizable by their rib cage filled with living fire, and horns on top of their skull. While they have a powerful bite that can easily break bone, they rarely have need as they are able to set ablaze anything unfortunate enough to get caught in their fiery gaze. It is said that the flames inside their ribs is what gives an inferno hound its life and that without it, the hound would be nothing more than a pile of bones. Many believe that these flames is how Odan Galopin was able to create the flaming comets and though many have experimented, no other magi has been able to replicate Odans magic.
