His name is Crix and he is a Cricken! A young dweller of Amber Heights, who is a keen learner of his surroundings. Crix lives with his foster family of Hedgens, who had adopted him a long time ago. Their village huts are located on the promontory, just above the corn fields, and at the edge of the forest rand. Crix is restless, but restrained, compared to his extravagant friend Legen. Crix always insisted, that learning could explain many 'magical' things, which he took very sceptically. That is why, many forest-dwellers of the magical nook, looked at him suspiciously.
