Istiora hatchlings are curious but not particularly bright, though some researchers think this might just be because they're near-sighted. Either way, a magi raising an istiora should always keep in mind both their long sharp bill and, once they're older, their ability to stun with a single poke or slash. Kajiki istiora hatchlings are attracted to light, especially if it's bright and flashing; an attraction that magi can take advantage of to keep them still for at least a few moments. Unlike paxir, kajiki hatchlings are generally ambivalent about companions, but only so long as those companions are larger or at least more dangerous than them.

Kajiki istiora can be found in oceans all over the world, though they seem to prefer more tropical waters, especially when laying their eggs. Istiora are large, heavy creatures that can not only outgrow many boats, but also outswim them. For this reason - and because the oceans are so large - few magi have been able to study them extensively, and those that do encounter them on the open sea are often driven away by their ability to stun with their bills. Eggs are also well-hidden, but a handful of istiora have been raised by researchers, at least until they outgrow their pools and have to be released. Kajiki istiora are most often spotted during thunderstorms and hurricanes, when they leap out of the water to - according to local fishermen - recharge their stun abilities.
