Young Lycires spend their days playing and learning how to use their fire-manipulation powers. This means they are constantly covered in ash and cooling embers. This does not hurt them but does make them rather messy and the embers can hurt non-Lycires that they come into contact with. Once a Lycire gains mastery over flame their tail will become wreathed in an undying flame. This is not only a symbol of their mastery but also acts as source of flame for defensive purposes.
