Voliton hatchlings start trying to shape objects the moment they hatch. It is not unusual to spot a voliton hatchling floating a drop of water or a bundle of wet clay in front of it with a concentrated look in its eye. However, their power is less refined than an adult's, and their efforts will often yield nothing but oddly shaped lumps of earth. Sometimes, however, voliton hatchlings will present their magi with a clumsy, lumpy object that in good light and with squinted eyes might be considered a sculpture of their magi.

The elusive volitons are rarely spotted. They tend to inhabit far-away mountains and prefer mostly to keep their own company, even though some individuals end up in the Keep every now and then. Some say the volitons are related to gryphons whereas some argue they more closely resemble dragons. The exact origin of the creatures is unknown and much debate has been put into identifying and classifying the creatures and no consensus has been reached to this day. The power of these companions has also been wildly discussed. The volitons appear to have the power to mould any material into any shape they wish without physically touching the material. They practice this skill throughout their lives, and the older the creature is, the harder materials they can shape and the more complex patterns they can achieve. The oldest individuals are said to be able to create stunning sculptures beyond what any human carver could accomplish.
