General Information
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. <br>(Extra Information by Mathcat)

This golden egg is quite small compared to the others.
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.
Baby Information

This tiny, golden hatchling is able to channel sunlight through its scales and beam it to a single, condensed spot. It often sets stuff on fire with this power.
Cranky hatchlings will use their powers to light important papers on fire if they feel they're being ignored. On cloudy days, they resort to biting instead. Some will even channel light to toast insects, perhaps finding that this improves the flavor. As their control isn't always great, they should not be used for pest control until considerably older.
Teen Information

This tiny, golden hatchling is able to channel sunlight through its scales and beam it to a single, condensed spot. It often sets stuff on fire with this power. It has now grown a pair of thin, lace-like wings, but does not seem to be able to use it for flight. A thin dust constantly falls off of them.
The glittering dust that sunsprite hatchlings shed is essentially harmless, unless one is particularly allergic to dust, and is mainly disliked for its ability to get into absolutely everything. No matter how carefully one cleans, there is always another sparkly patch somewhere. Given their ability to spread a small amount of glitter over the largest possible area, it's probably just as well they can't really fly yet.

Some mages use their sunsprites as flashlights or nightlights. Using them to completely replace a light source isn't recommended, though, as even the strongest sunsprite can only provide light for an hour or two before needing to take a long rest. If one only needs to find a dropped earring or pill, though, most sunsprites will be willing to lend a claw. Though occasionally touchy creatures, they are loyal to their mage.
