It is something of a relief to have a resurrection horse as a companion. Unlike most hatchlings, these creatures do not need constant supervision or protection. They are free to gallop where they like, and have an even stronger love of adventure than most animals. This may be because these hatchlings have no fear of death: if injured or even killed, they will simply burst into flame and return to their egg stage. This does not happen often, as these horses are very intelligent and even the most playful of foals does not endanger itself frequently. If a magi is looking for their foal companion, they should not be hard to spot: endlessly burning fire makes them quite easy to find.

Sasrael resurrection horses are the only creatures, other than phoenixes, with the ability to return to life. If one of these majestic horses succumbs to death, an astonishing event will take place: the creature will burst into flame, and what was a living creature will become nothing more than charred pile of ashes. For those first witnessing this transformation, it is a strange and worrying event. But despite being rather frightening, this time is to be celebrated, for sitting in the center of those ashes will be a new egg – small, but full of new life. This reborn being will still hold the spirit of the old, but will lead a different life. When the egg eventually breaks and the hatchling climbs out, one should notice that its bright coloring has remained the same. As with the mighty phoenixes, resurrection horses exist in two very different, beautiful forms. This is a sasrael horse, born with an unearthly mane of fire and a form resembling that of a skeleton. As its odd appearance may indicate, resurrection horses are not very friendly, despite their endlessly positive effects on people. They do not care to be ridden, and are most content when in each other's companies or socializing with phoenixes. They have no need to be trained, and so any time that they choose to spend with a human companion is valuable indeed.
