Still delicate and beautiful, adult lunar eclipse kirins are much bolder than their young. They approach anyone they see as a potential challenger, but as long as the challenge is not met with force they will allow the person to pass. If attacked, however, they will use their scales as weapons as much as their hooves or horns, with devastating results. While they are willing to carry riders they trust, they require specially-constructed saddles, and will not take a bridle at all. Most people don't bother, but those dedicated to these lovely beings say the ride is well worth the effort, for they run like the wind and their natural chill is a great comfort when traveling in hot climates.

Legend says the first lunar eclipse kirin was not born but crafted, the ultimate creation of some ancient ice-mage given life through powerful magic or blessing. Their bodies are strong as tempered iron, with jagged scales like saw-teeth - careless attempts to pet them can result in a badly-torn palm, and a full attack can be fatal as they bring those edges into play. Their frills are actually stiff, clear hairs like glass fiber, their rippling colors reflecting the magical cold fire which is the kirin's lifeblood. Shed hair and scales from these creatures are treasured by magi who work in metal and ice, but most valuable are their lapis masks, both for magic work and decoration. New kirin grow their first mask before they are an hour old, and shed them to form new ones all their lives.
