Nunny eggs manifest themselves in areas of Ark where the "Christmas spirit" is most prevalent. The sweet aroma emitted by these eggs is known to heighten the festive cheer of the individuals that are in close vicinity to them.
Never prematurely remove a Nunny egg from where it first appeared. It will start to wither and fade away unless it is returned. An unhealthy Nunny egg has once been observed to cause those surrounding it to plummet into a state of despair. It is thought that these eggs are capable of establishing an empathic link to anyone that is nearby.
A Nunny that is close to hatching might have difficulty escaping its shell. Arkians who have never owned a Nunny before seek Aki the Bright for assistance. In most cases, he will brew the egg in warm water until the soft chocolate encasement dissolves completely and the hatchling is able to free itself. Hot Nunny chocolate is a delicacy during the holiday seasons and new owners are often given the first sip to strengthen their bond to their newly hatched creature.
A Nunny will immediately sense the sadness of anyone nearby. It will do anything within its power to cheer that person or creature up. If it is having difficulty, more Nunnies will appear to offer their assistance. The Science and Research Center in Ark City has come to the conclusion that Nunnies are capable of empathy and developed this ability due to the circumstances in which they were first conceived.
Nunnies are also very enthusiastic helpers. As a matter of fact, young Nunnies are so enthusiastic that they can be quite clumsy. They are very loving, welcoming creatures that enjoy spreading happiness and decorating for any occasion. If asked politely enough, a Nunny will do almost anything that is asked of it.
