This bluish-purple fruit, which looks something like a tiny apple, holds the key to creating the anumi. The fruit becomes activated when it is mashed together with the blood of a master who truly cares for the creature, and mixed in with the animal’s favorite food. Upon complete consumption of this mixture, the animal transforms into a level 1 anumus within 24 hours. It has no effect on creatures that are not natural beasts. The mixture is specific to the animal it was intended for; it will not transform an animal that the blood donor did not care deeply for.
Note: This process, lost to time, creates the anumi plant which will eventually produce the magical fruit, much like any other fruit-bearing plants. Most fruits produced by this plant are seedless, though it will produce one golden fruit per year that has a seed which will grow another plant. Anumi plants live forever if left unharmed and well cared for, and produce about a three dozen fruit per year in warm climates or indoors. They will not produce fruit outdoors in the winter, as they go dormant.
