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.

This light blue 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.
This tiny, light blue hatchling was hatched with wings, and is able to fly. It also is able to summon a small gust of wind to support its flights, and seems to work well with both wind and water aligned creatures. It often will aide a hatchling learning to fly by lending it a gust of wind.
Windsprite and watersprite hatchlings often play together, combining their powers to make a mess of their mage's belongings. Their favorite trick is to create a waterspout to squirt anyone walking past. When caught, they act sorry, but will soon be back to their old tricks.
This tiny, light blue hatchling was hatched with wings, and is able to fly. It also is able to summon a small gust of wind to support its flights, and seems to work well with both wind and water aligned creatures. It often will aide a hatchling learning to fly by lending it a gust of wind. It has grown in a dual set of wings, and although it does not need to use the wind gusts to support itself, it gladly will and is fond of using it to an advantage to soar high above the castle.
Particularly helpful windsprite hatchlings will levitate small out-of-reach objects to help their mage. More mischievous ones will use gusts of air to play keep-away with important papers. They are often found in the company of windheights, either helping to dry them out after an unexpected rainstorm or attempting to blow them off course.
Your hatchling has grown now and its powers, when combined with the powers of a water sprite, allow for them to create a small torrent to easily water any plants. As such, it is not uncommon to see a water and wind sprite as a pair, as it not only allows for them to aide others but also easily protect themselves. Your sprite is also easily able to soar to incredible heights, and it is not uncommon for it to return from these flights with high-mountain trinkets or a cold body.
Windsprites can be trained to bring back specific items from their mountain trips, but this generally isn't a good idea. Eager to please, they will search to the point of exhaustion to find what their mage wanted. It's best to let the windsprite decide what it wants to bring back. Windsprites and watersprites usually maintain their hatchling friendship and will often team up during the winter to form ice sculptures. Large groups will also thicken ice on lakes in exchange for a few extra treats.
