Found only in the Near East, these diminutive dragons are similar in size (and flight) to the colibri, but are much more dangerous. With lightning quick attacks and the ability to cast magic, these small dragons can be not only a nuisance, but can be deadly. With an otherworldly association with wind, Puks are not only virtually immune to all wind based attacks, but they can actually heal themselves and generate TP based on, among other things, the day and/or weather. Adventurers be warned… this association can instantly change the course of battle when the weather or day changes in the midst of an otherwise routine battle.

Defeated Puks may leave behind their eggs and wings. While their eggs are a delicacy in the Near East, they have not been quite as popular with the chefs – and have been incorporated in only one dish. The wings too have a solitary use in the crafting of some elemental arrows. One final item, Chimera Blood, may be located on a defeated Puk due to the fact that a chimera in zoology is an animal that is defined as having two or more genetically distinct cells found in their dna structure, a Puk being a mix of a dragon and the colibri.
