Hatchling koredanuki are mostly fluff, cool to the touch but still soft and lacking the adults' crown of ice. They're full of energy almost from the moment they hatch and love to explore, poking noses and paws into any crack they can find. Magi have at most a month before their koredanuki starts playing pranks, though these tricks are usually clumsy and more adorable than annoying. Koredanuki usually spend their nights roaming around, especially if they can find other hatchlings around the same age to play with.
Koredanuki are tricky and mischievous, but generally soft-hearted; they never play their pranks to harm anyone and will be contrite if their target gets angry. They especially enjoy using illusions and reflective surfaces to confuse magi, but can be convinced to stop their tricks with the offer of a gold coin or ten. As they get older, koredanuki also gain the ability to change shape into an inanimate object, which can prove quite startling when one's teapot suddenly sprouts a bushy tail. Many small villages in the Arkene, where koredanuki tend to be found, encourage the creatures to stay, as it's also believed that their presence - mischief aside - promotes goodwill and cheer.
