Bundles can be purchased in the form of:


The Pedigree acts as the Kaithe's main body.

Purchasing a Kaithe Pedigree will also grant its corresponding Tail.


The Chamfron refers to the various headdresses and armor worn on the Kaithe's head.


The Tail changes the appearance of the the Kaithe's tail.


The Saddle changes the appearance of the the Kaithe's saddle.


The Coronet is an effect placed above the Kaithe's head. Similar to Ephemera, they are inspired by the five Mood Spirals and their respective courtiers.


  • Various pictures of Kaithes can be found within the Zariman Ten Zero, some of which are sold by Hombask as decorations.
  • The skeletal appearance and draconic wings of Kaithe's could've been inspired by Thestrals, a magicalal beast from the Harry Potter franchise.
