So, with Kharon the fire turtle now making his home with Kalliope, I was at a loss as to what to do with Kallimon's Chili the fire turtle. We'd never bonded; I had tamed him at 81 (in an exciting three-hunter tame!) to save him from certain death, but Soup the ancient turtle had already stolen Kallimon's heart. I knew that I didn't want to give up on Chili; he needed a new form, not to be set free.
I had tried a green demon dog before and he didn't click, so even though my gut was to go with the red, I pushed that thought from my mind. But Veph convinced me to try anyway, so I did. Chili is so hyper now! I guess that shell had been weighing him down. He seems to really be enjoying his new sleek form. So the transition of pets truly was mutual here; this is Cerberus's old form. Incredible! We've gone full circle again.
