Minkins are tiny, yet fully-grown magical creatures that seem to choose to be small. They have an affinity for shiny things, and usually fly.
Drakkins (miniature dragons, even smaller than Minidrakes) were the first of the Minkins, magically conjured by Light Primes Beekin, Syndira, and Jujinka. Later on the Dark Primes Mirmoggin, Lokira, and Dyarr/Dyarra created the Lemurkins in response (small, flying lemurs with a rack of ebony horns). Many other Minkins have begun to appear since then.
