Despite the stories, an adult jinglong has never come down from the mountain to steal a child, or anything at all. They prefer to spend most of their time up in the mountains, drifting through the air; likely because their legs are too small to support their great weight. Within a few years of hatching, they're easily big enough to carry a person on their back, and no one is quite sure how they manage to keep themselves aloft with their small wings. Their size also means that they don't need to have any camouflage, leading to bright colors on both the male and female. Thick, fluffy manes that stand on end stretch down the entire length of their bodies, and like all crystalwings they shed their gems once a year.

Crystalwings are rare, shy creatures who often seem to spawn more myths than actual fact. Towns and villages near the Alasre Mountains whisper tales of the jinglong crystalwing and tell their children to behave lest the jinglong come down from its mountain peaks to spirit away those who are naughty. Large and slow-moving, jinglong spend most of their time moving sinuously through the thin air at the tops of mountains, watching the land far below. They almost never land and it's considered a sign of great luck when one does; the place that it touches is an auspicious place to build a home, will yield excellent crops, or contains treasure.
