A wonderful bird of many colours who could change her size, and sometimes her colour, when she needed to blend into her surroundings to avoid detection (much like a Chameleon can). She would often take the children on flights to other lands and times and worlds, hence her name begat the words a “flight of fancy” which we use today to describe a period when we allow our imagination to take flight.

She had a special saddle to keep the children safely seated on her back as she soared at incredible speeds above and beyond Perpetua and to other lands and times.
