Visual DelightMirrorhead Trout are one of the most common fish found within the Deep Bend, and are visually distinct from the rest of the fish found in that portion of the lake, thanks to their incredibly reflective appearance. These fish grow to be around 50 or 60cm in length, and for most of their adult lives, their shiny scales appear as a soft purple or dark pink colour. During their fry or adolescent stages, these colours are generally a bit darker, and their scales not as reflective; it's thought this helps the young and still developing fish keep a low profile during these early stages.
It gets downright blinding upstream during Mirrorhead spawning season. Thousands of fish wriggling their way up that shallow rocky creek -- on an especially bright day it's like starin' into the surface of the sun.
The Deep Bend, the lake portion of River Artazia that the Mirrorhead Trout call home, is thought to be one of the deepest lakes anywhere within Cathedris. Countless rumours are told of strange and mythical beasts, ancient shipwrecks, and forgotten cities existing within the depths.
