Sprite midges are said to each embody an elemental power, and often a mage will collect the respective sprite that their magic mirrors. Sprite midges are creative and will often find unique ways to use their magic, so mages who keep these dragons are often at an advantage from studying and observing the strange solutions these tiny creatures find. A mage without a sprite midge is often either a master or a beginner, as many teachers will even require a sprite midge for class.

While there are eight clans, there are (unless Aszerath is hiding something) only seven types of elemental sprite midges. Dark Clan members will, if they take on a sprite midge at all, either adopt one from their previous clan or try to get by with a firesprite, which at least looks vaguely dark-oriented.

Sprite midge eggs are quite sturdy, though their small size would suggest otherwise. While they benefit from a well-cushioned nest, they will not shatter if scowled at.

Hatchling
70 clicks

This tiny, red hatchling is quite useless. It has small wing arms that it attempts to use to fly. You have to be careful about where you let it slither as it emits strong hear and is prone to leaving a trail of burnt material behind it.
Firesprite hatchlings are the frequent targets of fire demons, who envy them their ability to start fires. As firesprites have long memories and are slow to forgive, they get their revenge once grown. Firesprites may be kept with witherskin hatchlings, but have an unfortunate habit of teasing the still-largely-immobile witherskins.

This tiny, red hatchling is quite useless. It has small wing arms that it attempts to use to fly. You have to be careful about where you let it slither as it emits strong hear and is prone to leaving a trail of burnt material behind it. Its wings have grown in and its trail of destruction has grown, as it now has large cracks of strong rock that emit extreme heat on its chest. It also has grown horns of this same material.
Firesprite hatchlings have a sixth sense about what papers are most valuable and least replaceable. If insulted, they will create little bonfires out of what can least be spared. To thwart them, either raise a watersprite at the same time or learn to pretend that a piece of scratch paper is an invaluable object.

Your hatchling has grown and it now possesses incredible power over fire. The stones that it had embedded in its chest now emit a strong heat, not unlike that of an erebus, and has grown prone to setting its spine on fire. You try to make sure that it does not set objects on fire but you have not been too successful.
Grown firesprites will sometimes try to set their owners on fire if vexed. Luckily, they can readily be defeated by fireproofing spells or fire-resistant clothing. Firesprites can sometimes be trained to use their powers for good, but even the most amenable will remain snappish and mercurial. They can, however, usually be persuaded to stretch out in a fireplace on winter days, as they greatly dislike cold weather.
