The Guild Matters Sye book whispers the arcane secrets of the Magic Workers and Merchant guilds.
The Bird-of-Paradise Flower resembles a dragonette in flight.
Wild blooms are blue, orange, and white. The plants grow in the warm and sunny coastal regions of Sye.
Maji’kers (Magic Guild mages) who keep dragonettes use the Bird-of-Paradise blooms in bouquets to represent their adored sentient magical pets.
Enchanters cultivate the Bird-of-Paradise in their gardens at the Five Schools, and use their magical essence to coax the flowers into the seven colors of the stones in their Uslar Rings:
- Earthe (brown and deep green)
- Mer (aqua and blue)
- Aer (clear)
- Fyre (scarlet and amber)
The Bird-of-Paradise retains spells fueled with Enchanter essence.
Easy spells make the flower flap “wings” and dip its head. More difficult spells detach the bloom, make it flutter, and hover the bloom above the plant. The most advanced enchantments turn the flower into a tiny dragonette form. Enchanters can bespell an entire garden of Bird-of-Paradise. They turn the blooms into mewling miniatures, and the transformed flowers fly about and play with real dragonettes.
