Adult diamond koi are a lovely sight to behold when they swim near the surface, refracting the light that reaches them through the water everywhere, mottling the water. They are well aware of their beauty, and use their water purification abilities to change the color of the water around them to best advantage when in the mood to show off. Despite their occasional bouts of vanity, they are as helpful and friendly as any other koi, and love assisting anyone who requests help. Diamond koi are most commonly found in the Stream and at Lake Lakira, playing with the other koi and helping to watch over the creatures that share the lake with them.

With their brilliantly faceted scales, as hard and bright as the stone they’re named for, diamond koi are a variety particularly well-loved for ornamental ponds, especially since their much harder scales deter the predators that other koi varieties sometimes succumb to. With the gentle, patient demeanor of most of their brethren, and the same powers, they are a common choice of companion for magi with water and healing affinities. Since their scales are more brittle as a result of their hardness, diamond koi shed and replace their scales liberally. These shiny scales are quite reflective, but the reflections they show are always slightly off, showing the recent past instead of the present. They make potent ingredients for healing and scrying potions - though only for scrying the past - and so are carefully collected for this purpose.
