"Most likely, some males can be quite attentive to their mates," Shyran responded. Growing up the daughter of Fancy Flit breeders meant she knew quite a bit about them. One reason she never had any trouble handling her own Fancy Flits. The little ruby would make a fine addition to her fair and she was hoping to see some interesting offspring from her own eggs in the future. Not that the ruby was her only clutching female but it will be some time still before her garnet was old enough.
Shyran looked over at the other recently hatched babies and smiled. Mouse certainly was getting a nice variety of fancy flits from the clutch. "That he does indeed. I may just have to keep him in mind when one of my females is ready to rise."
"You really do have a kind heart to take on two handicapped pets," Shyran responded. She knew most breeders would cull any offspring with obvious deformities. It was lucky these found a home with P'list. "Felines are pretty adoptable, it may not be as 'blind' as you think. He likely hears as well as any feline and those whiskers are useful too but it's good you baby-proofed your weyr at least till he's had a chance to explore every inch of it. I am also not surprised your three legged furflit has no trouble getting along. Wings are very useful for that."
Shyran looked down at her sleeping ruby and agreed, he did look like hot coals at night. She already had a flit named Hot Stuff but something relating to coals would be good. Then the name came to her and she smiled. "You know, your description of this little guy is spot on and it also gives me an idea for a name. I shall call him Ember."
It may sound a little feminine but Shyran didn't mind. Ember suited the Ruby and firelizards didn't have the ability to truly comprehend masculine/feminine when it came to names. It may confuse some people but Shyran wasn't worried. Ember was the perfect name for a ruby who did look like glowing coals.
"He certainly does make fantastic babies, it's very rare to see a Starburst hatch, that rider certainly is lucky to Impress one," Shyran added. Now that Ember was fast asleep she could enjoy watching the rest of the eggs hatch and visit with P'list.
"How's Elahrairath fairing? Are you two still flying as messengers or did you move up into the Fighting Wings?" Shyran asked. "Pacaran and I are graduated and in a patrol group for now. With the threats of the Felines it seemed more important than diplomacy. Besides, it's highly unlikely the felines can be reasoned with like you can with dragonkin, such as the Pearls."
