Out of your egg a small seal has hatched that looks like its skin is several sizes too large for its body. It has a very loud mewl, especially when hungry, and more than once your neighbors in the Keep have complained when your little seal decided to whine for attention in the middle of the night. On land, it bumbles around clumsily, but it immediately took to the water and is already able to easily outdistance you when swimming. It likes to squirt water at you, sometimes even when there is no water around, and you often feel unusually thirsty after playing with it.

Raiti seals are inhabitants of the cold frozen seas of the far north. Their thick pelt and heavy layers of fat protect them from the cold, both on the ice and in the water. For travelers along the northern shores, their hoarse, throaty barks are a common background noise, and a sign that they are not alone on the icy wastes. Raiti seals have an unusual power; while it would appear to the uninformed observer that they can create water from nothing, this is not true. Raiti seals can draw water from the air, the ground or even other living beings. In the wild, they use this power to scare off predators, drawing enough water from their body to make them very thirsty and thus wander off to fill more pressing needs than hunger. While a single adult cannot seriously harm a human this way, it is powerful enough to make small plants shrivel if it so chooses. Luckily, raiti seals are playful and unwilling to injure other beings, and thus take care not to do so unless absolutely necessary.
