Sugar Foxes Lore, part 1: The Origin of the Sugar Fox: The town of Silverbrook was a magical one from its earliest days. The first residents were wizards, and their descendants took over from there. Magic and curiosity both run deep in the residents’ blood. As a result, spells became experimental pretty quickly. One wizard in particular decided to mix magic and baking. Not the most essential of experiments, and not one that would lead to anything groundbreaking. Or so he thought.
Results of Experiment:
The magic treats attracted the local omnivorous wildlife: the bears, raccoons, and of course, the adorable foxes. Because of their large size, the bears were unaffected by the magic, and it turned the raccoons into tanuki, their magical cousins from a faraway land. The most interesting result, however, came from the local foxes. Their coats turned the colors of the treats they consumed, and they became a lot friendlier. These new “Sugar Foxes” became a common sight in Silverbrook.
One day, a young wizard of Silverbrook wanted a familiar, but he was allergic to cat fur and raven feathers. Unsure of what to do, he went into the forest. A Sugar Fox approached him, gently nuzzling him. The fox didn’t cause a reaction, so the young mage had an idea! He took the fox, a red-velvet-colored female, home with him. “Velvet,” as he named her, was the first domesticated Sugar Fox. Other wizards saw this and recruited their own Sugar Foxes. Sugar Foxes are highly magical creatures. Because of this, they quickly became the most popular familiar in Silverbrook.
