Citellans are rare in the lands around the Keep, but at the start of autumn, they gather in great numbers as if to celebrate the crop harvest. Though squirrel-like in appearance, citellans are far more migratory than their rodent counterparts. Citellans migrate constantly, moving from place to place as the seasons pass, constantly searching for ripe grain and fresh seeds. They eat surprisingly little despite their constant search for food, selecting only the choicest crops to fill their bellies. Because of their influence over the land, wise farmers will harvest all but the richest portion of their crops, leaving a small patch for the migrating citellans. This ensures that the ground will remain fertile, and the next year’s crops will grow hardy and full. As winter approaches, the citellans move south to warmer lands, where they will sleep underground in wait of the Vernal Equinox to signal the start of spring. Citellans are revered for their powerful earth magic, though whether they have active control over the fertility of the land, or emit an aura that affects the soil, is unknown. Magi who choose these creatures as companions will note their sensitivity to the earth; in the presence of vibrant fields, citellans become energetic and playful, but become distressed should they pass through land ravaged by destructive magic or human forces. Given time, a citellan's presence will eventually restore part of a disrupted environment to its original splendor.
