Razan kalistavri are the largest of the kalistavri when fully grown, with long, gracefull tail feathers. They are quite fast runners, often dashing into the tall grass to play impromptu games of chase with other kalistavri. As adults they are more comfortable when separated from their flock mates but will insist upon sleeping with their magi should overnight trips take them from the flock. It is also not uncommon to see a well respected wand maker with a grumpy kalistavri roosting upon their head, hissing and screeching whenever they feel someone has come too close for comfort. In such situations it is best to stay well back and respect the kalistavri's desires, for their sharp claws and beaks can rend fingers as easily as lizard tails.

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.
