Jinglong hatchlings hatch at the very tops of mountains and spend only a short time in the nest before they begin to take short trips into the air. They grow rapidly and within a year will join the adults in circling the mountain peaks, and they continue to grow throughout their life at a slower pace. More nimble than the adults, they enjoy swooping down on unsuspecting travelers; never to hurt them, but just to startle them. Males and females are easily distinguishable right after hatching by their different coloring, but both have a thick, fluffy mane that stands up straight and covers their body from head to tail.

Crystalwings are rare, shy creatures who often seem to spawn more myths than actual fact. Towns and villages near the Alasre Mountains whisper tales of the jinglong crystalwing and tell their children to behave lest the jinglong come down from its mountain peaks to spirit away those who are naughty. Large and slow-moving, jinglong spend most of their time moving sinuously through the thin air at the tops of mountains, watching the land far below. They almost never land and it's considered a sign of great luck when one does; the place that it touches is an auspicious place to build a home, will yield excellent crops, or contains treasure.
