A bestiary page showing both acquired and unacquired familiars.
keeps a record of
a player has obtained in
. It shows pictures of every familiar that exists in game, whether the user has it currently or not. The bestiary also keeps track of what level of bonding the user's familiars are at and shows it under their description.
However, the bestiary only counts familiars that are currently in the player's
hoard or are equipped to their dragons. So to officially complete the bestiary it isn't enough to have just had/seen them at one point, a player must have all the familiars in their hoard at all times. An acquired familiar's picture is colored in while an unacquired one's picture and description are greyed out.
A familiar's bonding level stays the same even if a player sells the familiar and gets a new one since the level is stored on the account and not the individual familiar itself.
